The niteness length of G is the maximaln for which G is of type F if it exists and is in nite otherwise. A rich sourcenof groups with nite niteness length consists of S-arithmetic groups in positivecharacteristic, that is, groups of the form G(O ) where G is an algebraic groupSde ned over a global function eld k andO is the ring ofS-integers for a nite setSS of places of k.In this thesis we determine the niteness length of the groups G(O ) where GSis anF -isotropic, connected, noncommutative, almost simple F -group andO isq q S1 1one ofF [t],F [t ], andF [t;t ]. That is,k =F (t) andS contains one or both ofq q q qthe places s and s corresponding to the polynomial p(t) = t respectively to the0 1point at in nity.
