Symmetric Spaces over a Finite Field

  • George Lusztig


Let G be a (connected) reductive group defined over a finite field Fq (q odd) with a given involution θ:GG defined over Fq. The pair (G, θ) will be called a symmetric space (over Fq), we shall fix a closed subgroup K of the fixed point set Gθ such that K is defined over Fq and K contains the identity component (Gθ)0 of .
