Title: Quasi-minimal structures


I plan to give a general survey talk about different kinds of 'minimality' and their role in model theory. A significant portion of the talk will be devoted to a relatively new notion of quasi-minimality. The notion was discovered by Boris Zilber during his study of the fields with pseudo-exponentiation.
