Date: 30 July 1998
The aim of this paper is give an exposition of some of the main
properties of regular nilpotent elements of the Lie algebra of a reductive
algebraic group (with not necessarily connected centre) defined over a
finite field. The approach presented here will be based heavily on analogous
work of Steinberg and Digne & Michel for regular unipotent elements.
