2 Dimensional Connected Algebraic Groups are Solvable

Conventions: $ G$ is an algebraic group over an algebraically closed field $ k$ and we identify $ G$ with $ G(k)$. Consider the algebraic groups $ \mathbb{G}_a$ and $ \mathbb{G}_m$. They are the only one-dimensional connected groups and they are both solvable. What about two-dimensional connected groups? It turns out that if $ \mathrm{dim} […]
