2242. Benjamin Castle
Restricted Trichotomy in Characteristic Zero

Submission date: 1 September 2022


We prove the characteristic zero case of Zilber's Restricted Trichotomy Conjecture. That is, we show that if M is any non-locally modular strongly minimal structure interpreted in an algebraically closed field K of characteristic zero, then M itself interprets K; in particular, any non-1-based structure interpreted in K is mutually interpretable with K. Notably, we treat both the `one-dimensional' and `higher-dimensional' cases of the conjecture, introducing new tools to resolve the higher-dimensional case and then using the same tools to recover the previously known one-dimensional case.
