The Steinberg Representation

In this post I want to describe a remarkable representation associated to finite groups of Lie type. For this, let G be a connected reductive group over a finite field k with q = p^r elements, and let U be the unipotent radical of some Borel k-subgroup B of G. Steinberg constructed an irreducible representation \mathrm{St} of G(k) of dimension q^{\dim U}. For convenience, we will assume that G is split
