We exhibit counterexamples to a Conjecture of Nesin, since we build a connected solvable group with finite center and of finite Morley rank in which no normal nilpotent subgroup has a nilpotent complement. The main result says that each centerless connected solvable group G of finite Morley has a normal nilpotent subgroup U and an abelian subgroup T such(More)
With any connected affine algebraic group G over an algebraically closed field K of characteristic zero, we associate another connected affine algebraic group D over K and a finite central subgroup F of D such that, up to isomorphism of algebraic groups, affine algebraic groups over K abstractly isomorphic to G are precisely of the form D/α(F )×Ks +, where(More)
We study the structure of subgroups of minimal connected simple groups of finite Morley rank. We first establish a Jordan decomposition for a large family of minimal connected simple groups including those with a non-trivial Weyl group. We then show that definable, connected, solvable subgroups of such a simple group are the semi-direct product of their(More)
We prove that generous non-nilpotent Borel subgroups of connected minimal simple groups of finite Morley rank are self-normalizing. We use this to introduce a uniform approach to the analysis of connected minimal simple groups of finite Morley rank through a case division incorporating four mutually exclusive classes of groups. We use these to analyze(More)
