ALGEBRAIC MODEL THEORY PROGRAM
Graduate course on geometric model theory
taught by A. Pillay (U. of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana)
We will first study locally modular rank 1 types in general. This will then
lead to the study the theory of fields with a generic automorphism with an
aim to proving the dichotomy theorem of Chatzidakis and Hrushovski that rank
1 types are either stable and locally modular, or nonorthogonal to the fixed
field (in characteristic 0).
