Linear Algebraic groups

  1. Jul 1, 2010 #1
    Hi All,
    I am trying to learn about Linear Algebraic Groups. I am using the book by James Humpreys. I love the subject, but I find it a bit, say, not so beginner-friendly. My goal is not being spoon-fed, but I am very interested in finding a source(s) whereby one is able to go through some concrete, simple examples. Ideally I am looking for some worked-out problems in James Humpreys' book or a similar text so I can get a start. Could you provide any help or suggestions? I just did not want post one question after the other as I am difficulty solving quite a few. I also have this conviction that if I were to jump over this initial hump, then I could proceed a bit faster on my own. I thank you for your time and apologize for the rambling.

    You might find the book by T.A. Springer interesting.
