In science:

Recent developments in toric geometry
If G acts properly on X then a quotient X/G exists in the category of algebraic spaces ([Ko], [K-M]); under some additional hypotheses (see [GIT]) if X is a scheme then X/G is a scheme.
Equivariant intersection theory
The converse need not be true ([GIT, Example 0.4]).
Equivariant intersection theory
Following [GIT], we denote by P icG(X ) the group of isomorphism classes of G-linearized locally free sheaves on X .
Equivariant intersection theory
If X is quasi-pro jective with a linearized G-action, we can define equivariant higher Chow groups AG i (X, m) as Ai+l−g (XG , m), where XG is formed from an ldimensional representation V such that V − U has high codimension (note that XG is quasi-pro jective, by [GIT, Prop. 7.1]).
Equivariant intersection theory
However, if G is connected and X is quasi-pro jective and normal, then by Sumihiro’s equivariant completion [Su] and [GIT, Corollary 1.6], any action is linearizable.
Equivariant intersection theory
In characteristic 0 there are no inseparable extensions, so our quotient is in fact a geometric quotient ([GIT, Prop. 0.2]).
Equivariant intersection theory
For proper actions, a geometric quotient is unique ([GIT], [Ko]).
Equivariant intersection theory
If G is reductive, then [GIT, Proposition 0.8 and Converse 1.13] give criteria for properness when G is reductive.
Equivariant intersection theory
By [GIT, Lemma, p.14], there is a finite map Y ′ → Y , with Y ′ normal, π→ Y ′ has a section in a neighborhood of every point.
Equivariant intersection theory
By [GIT, Prop. 7.1] a principal bundle quotient X ×G U exists.
