Forking in the free group

Anand Pillay (UIUC Math & University of Leeds)

Abstract: I will discuss geometric-stability-theoretic properties of the first order theory of the free group (on more than one generator), assuming results announced by Sela and Bestvina-Feighn. The gist is that it is "complicated" and resembles the theory of a "bad group" of finite Morley rank.
