Around the Canonical Base Property
Connections for Women: Model Theory and Its Interactions with Number Theory and Arithmetic Geometry February 10, 2014 - February 11, 2014
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
The Canonical Base Property (CBP for short) was introduced by Pillay, inspired by results in Complex geometry. It implies the dichotomy "modular/fields" for rank 1 types, and is satisfied by the two main examples of fields with operators. After giving the definition, I will discuss how one can prove it, some of its consequences, notably a descent result. I will also mention some applications to algebraic questions.
