This book clearly details the theory of groups of finite Morley rank--groups which arise in model theory and generalize the concept of algebraic groups over algebraically closed fields. Written especially for pure group theorists and graduate students embarking on research on the subject, the book develops the theory from the beginning and contains an algebraic and self-evident rather than a model-theoretic point of view. All necessary model and group theoretical notions are explained at length. Containing nearly all of the known results in the subject, the book offers a plethora of exercises and examples, making it ideal for both students and researchers in group theory and model theory.
