A new trichotomy theorem for groups of finite Morley rank
Submission date: 12 March 2007
We show that a minimal counter example to the Cherlin-Zilber Algebraicity Conjecture for simple groups of finite Morley rank has normal 2-rank at most two, which is a tameness free version of Borovik's original trichotomy theorem. This result serves as a bridge by showing that there are not groups found strictly between the generic and quasithin cases, i.e. between groups of Lie rank at least three, and groups of Lie rank one and two. Again this result depends upon previous work for the uniqueness case analysis.
