A positive characteristic theory for polar representations?

Let $G$ be a split reductive algebraic group over a field $k$ of characteristic zero and $\mathfrak{g}$ it's Lie algebra. If $T\subset G$ is a maximal torus with Lie algebra $\mathfrak{t}$ and Weyl group $W$, then there is a well-known isomorphism of algebras $$k[\gfr]^G\xrightarrow{\sim}k[\mathfrak{t}]^W.$$ This is called the Chevalley restriction theorem. There are many ways […]
