Groups of finite Morley rank with a generically multiply transitive action on an abelian group

Ayşe Berkman and Alexandre Borovik

We investigate the configuration where a group of finite Morley rank acts definably and generically m-transitively on an elementary abelian p-group of Morley rank n, where p is an odd prime, and m n. We conclude that m = n, and the action is equivalent to the natural action of GL n(F) on Fn for some algebraically closed field F. This strengthens one of our earlier results, and partially answers two problems posed by Borovik and Cherlin in 2008.
