Orthogonality and model theory of finite rank groups in the proofs of Function Field Mordell-Lang

Elisabeth Bouscaren (Orsay)

In this talk, we will try to explain the use of the model-theory of finite rank groups and of the notion of orthogonality in the model theoretic proofs of the Mordell-Lang Conjecture for function fields, in Hrushovski's original proof as well as in other more recent work (joint with Franck Benoist and Anand PIllay). In particular we will talk about the use of the “Socle Theorem” in these proofs.
