This chapter describes the construction of canonical central extensions that are analogues for perfect smooth connected affine k-groups of the simply connected central cover of a connected semisimple k-group. A commutative affine k-group scheme of finite type is k-tame if it does not contain a nontrivial unipotent k-subgroup scheme. The chapter establishes good properties of the universal smooth k-tame central extension, noting that the property “locally of minimal type” is inherited by pseudo-reductive central quotients of pseudo-reductive groups. Although inseparable Weil restriction does not generally preserve perfectness, the chapter shows that the formation of the universal smooth k-tame central extension interacts with derived groups of Weil restrictions.

Keywords:   k-tame central extension, semisimple k-group, minimal type, central quotient, pseudo-reductive group, Weil restriction, canonical central extensions
