Linear representations of soluble groups of finite Morley rank
E-mail:

Submission date: 15 September 2010.

Abstract:

Sufficient conditions are given for groups of finite Morley rank having non-trivial torsion-free nilpotent normal subgroups to have linear rep- resentations with small kernels. In particular, centreless connected soluble groups of finite Morley rank with torsion-free Fitting subgroups have faithful linear representations. On the way, using a notion of definable weight space, we prove that certain connected soluble groups of finite Morley rank with torsion-free derived subgroup can be embedded in groups of finite Morley rank whose Fitting subgroups have definable abelian supplements.
