Lecture Course III Geometric stability and Zariski geometries (Boris Zilber, Oxford)

This course will concentrate on developments around the Trichotomy conjecture (see I). Topics include: pseudoplanes and the Weak Trichotomy Theorem, with scheme of proof; locally finite case (totally categorical theories) with scheme of proof; from pseudoplanes to Zariski geometries; classification results; non-classical Zariski geometries, and examples; Hrushovski counter-examples to Trichotomy and their reinterpretation; analytic Zariski structures.
