Supersimple Moufang polygons
Submission date: 19 February 2010.
This paper continues the work started in , where we showed that each class of finite Moufang polygons forms an asymptotic class, in the sense of  and . Here, we show that all (infinite) Moufang polygons whose first order theory is supersimple of finite rank are characterized as those inherited from the finite, i.e. if Γ is a supersimple finite rank Moufang polygon, then Γ belongs to one of the families of Moufang polygons which also has finite members. The proof rests on the classification of Moufang polygons due to Tits and Weiss, .
