we show that the automorphism groups of certain countable structures obtained using the Hrushovski amalgamation method are simple groups. The structures we consider are the 'uncollapsed' structures of infinite Morley rank obtained by the ab initio construction and the (unstable) ℵ 0-categorical pseudoplanes. The simplicity of the automorphism groups of(More)
We prove that the generic type of a non-cyclic torsion-free hyperbolic group G is foreign to any interpretable abelian group, hence also to any interpretable field. This result depends, among other things, on the definable simplicity of a non-cyclic torsion-free hyperbolic group, and we take the opportunity to give a proof of the latter using Sela's(More)
