### Invariants and separating morphisms for algebraic group actions

Abstract:

The first part of this paper is a refinement of Winkelmann’s work on invariant rings and quotients of algebraic group actions on affine varieties, where we take a more geometric point of view. We show that the (algebraic) quotient X//GX//G given by the possibly not finitely generated ring of invariants is “almost” an algebraic variety, and that the quotient morphism π:X→X//Gπ:X→X//G has a number of nice properties. One of the main difficulties comes from the fact that the quotient morph...
