Signalizers and balance in groups of finite Morley rank

Submission date: 12 March 2007.


We show that a minimal counter example to the Cherlin-Zilber Algebraicity Conjecture for simple groups of finite Morley rank has Prufer 2-rank at most two. This article covers the signalizer functor theory and identifies the groups of Lie rank at least three; leaving the uniqueness case analysis to previous articles. This result signifies the end of the general methods used to handle large groups; hereafter identification theorems will cover only individual groups.
