Strictly 2-transitive groups of finite Morley rank

Abstract: 


A permutation group is strictly 2-transitive if it acts 
transitively on pairs of distinct points, and the stabilizer of any 
two points is trivial. Borovik and Nesin have conjectured that a 
strictly 2-transitive group of finite Morley rank is the group of 
affine transformations over an algebraically closed field. I shall 
give some partial results towards a proof of the conjecture.
Joint work with Tuna Altinel, Ayse Berkmann and Samuel Zamour.
