Adam Gutter Carnegie Mellon University Title: Superstable Fields and Groups - Part I Abstract: This series of talks will focus on proving a theorem of Cherlin and Shelah (1980): If F is an infinite field with a superstable theory, then F is algebraically closed. This extends a result by Macintyre (1971) which states that any infinite omega-stable field is algebraically closed. The proof proceeds via results about stable groups, which are applied to the additive and multiplicative groups of a field F, along with the superstability assumption and elementary Galois theory.The first talk will focus on an indecomposability theorem for stable groups (which we will later apply to our field).
