  • Given an algebraic group G over a field k and a k-algebra R, the role of maximal
    abelian k-diagonalizable subalgebras (MAD for short) of G(R) is the same as that
    the split maximal torus play in G(k). Let G be a reductive group such that the derived
    subgroup is simply connected and let Spec(R) be a connected reduced affine
    scheme. This dissertation is to studying conjugacy problems related to MADs in
    G(R). First, we provide the conjugacy theorem for regular MADs. For arbitrary
    MADs, the conjugacy theorem does not exist. But we give the structure of MADs
    in the classical groups of type A;B;C and D.
