Conjugacy of Carter subgroups in groups of finite Morley rank

Submission date: 12 December 2007


We prove that any minimal counterexample to the Cherlin-Zil'ber Conjecture has a unique conjugacy class of Carter subgroups, which are defined as being the definable connected nilpotent subgroups of finite index in their normalizers, and which are analogous to Cartan subgroups in algebraic groups.
