Invariants of Unipotent Groups


I’ll give a survey on the known results on finite generation of invariants for nonreductive groups, and some conjectures. You know that Hilbert’s 14th problem is solved for the invariants of reductive groups; see [12] for a survey. So the general case reduces to the case of unipotent groups. But in this case there are only a few results, some negative and some positive. I assume that k is an infinite field, say the complex numbers, but in most instances an arbitrary ring would do it.
