We show that the geometry associated to certain non-split sharply 2-transitive groups does not contain a proper projective plane. For a sharply 2-transitive group of finite Morley rank we improve known rank inequalities for this geometry and conclude that a sharply 2-transitive group of Morley rank 6 must be of the form $K\rtimes K^*$ for some algebraically closed field $K$.

Simple sharply 2-transitive groups

We construct simple sharply 2-transitive groups. Our result answers an open question of Peter Neumann. In fact, we prove that every sharply 2-transitive group G of characteristic 0 embeds into a

Sharply 2-transitive groups of finite Morley rank

A near-field of finite Morley rank and characteristic different from 2 is an algebraically closed field. It follows that sharply 2-transitive permutation group of finite Morley rank of permutation

A sharply 2-transitive group without a non-trivial abelian normal subgroup

We show that any group $G$ is contained in some sharply 2-transitive group $\mathcal{G}$ without a non-trivial abelian normal subgroup. This answers a long-standing open question. The involutions in

We construct sharply 2-transitive groups of characteristic 0 without regular normal subgroups. These groups act sharply 2-transitively by conjugation on their involutions. This answers a

Sharply $2$-transitive groups

We give an explicit construction of sharply $2$-transitive groups with fixed point free involutions and without nontrivial abelian normal subgroup.

Bad Groups

There is no bad group of Morley rank 2n+1 with an abelian Borel subgroup of Morley rank n. In particular, there is no bad group of Morley rank 3 (O. Frécon).

If V is a vector space over a commutative field K, and if Q∶V → K is an arbitrary quadratic form ≠ 0, then the metric vector space (V,K,Q) determines a projective metric space (π(V,K),≡Q), consisting
