Task V: Simple groups of finite Morley rank
Description
Morley rank is a model-theoretic notion of dimension. In the case of
algebraic groups over algebraically closed fields, it coincides with algebraic dimension. The Cherlin-Zilber conjecture states that a simple (infinite)
group of finite Morley rank is an algebraic group over an algebraically
closed field, and is a central goal.
