Linear algebraic group

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a linear algebraic group is a subgroup of the group of invertible n×n matrices
(under matrix multiplication) that is defined by polynomial equations.

An example is the orthogonal group, defined by the relation MTM = I where MT is the transpose of
M.
