Abstract
Let G be linear algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k acting rationally on a Gmodule V , and N(G,V) its nullcone. Let δ(G, V ) and σ(G, V ) denote the minimal number d, such that for any v ∈ V^G \ N(G,V) and v ∈ V \ N(G,V) respectively, there exists a homogeneous invariant f of positive degree at most d such that f (v) = 0. Then δ(G) and σ(G) denote the supremum of these numbers taken over all Gmodules V . For positive characteristics, we show that δ(G) = ∞ for any subgroup G of GL 2 (k) which contains an infinite unipotent group, and σ(G) is finite if and only if G is finite. In characteristic zero, δ(G) = 1 for any group G, and we show that if σ(G) is finite, then G 0 is unipotent. Our results also lead to a more elementary proof that β_sep(G) is finite if and only if G is finite.
