We additionally assume that $G$ is standard and is of type $A_{n}$. Motivated by the investigation of the geometric properties of the varieties $\E(r,\g)$ of $r$dimensional elementary subalgebras of a restricted Lie algebra $\g$, we will show in this article the irreducible components of $\E({\rm rk}_p(\g)1,\g)$ when rk$_p(\g)$ is the maximal dimension of an elementary subalgebra of $\g$. Keywords: Elementary subalgebras, irreducible components. MSC: 17B50, 16G10 [ Fulltextpdf (368 KB)] for subscribers only.
