Division Rings with Ranks

Submission date: 13 May 2016


Any superrosy division ring (i.e. a division ring equipped with an abstract notion of rank) is shown to be centrally finite. Furthermore, division rings satisfying a generalized chain condition on definable subgroups are studied. In particular, a division ring of burden n has dimension at most n over its center, and any definable group of definable automorphisms of a field of burden n has size at most n. Additionally, interpretable division rings in o-minimal structures are shown to be algebraically closed, real closed or the quaternions over a real closed field.
