nLab affine Grassmannian

According to wikipedia,

the affine Grassmannian of an algebraic group GG over a field kk is an ind-scheme which can be thought of as a flag variety for the loop group G(k((t)))G(k((t)))

The affine Grassmannian is ind-representable. Affine Grassmannian of SL nSL_n admits embedding into Sato Grassmanian.
