@article{Schwartz2015kInvolutionsOS, title={k-Involutions of SL(n,k) over fields of characteristic 2}, author={Nathaniel Schwartz}, journal={Communications in Algebra}, year={2015}, volume={46}, pages={1912 - 1925} }

ABSTRACT Symmetric k-varieties generalize Riemannian symmetric spaces to reductive groups defined over arbitrary fields. For most perfect fields, it is known that symmetric k-varieties are in one-to-one correspondence with isomorphy classes of k-involutions. Therefore, it is useful to have representatives of each isomorphy class in order to describe the k-varieties. Here we give matrix representatives for each isomorphy class of k-involutions of SL(n,k) in the case that k is any field of… Expand
