Abstract/Media

I will introduce the class ECF of exponentially closed fields, including Zilber's pseudo-exponential fields. If the diophantine conjecture CIT is true, this is exactly the complete elementary class of the pseudo-exponential fields.  ECF interprets arithmetic so is not tame, however it is superstable over arithmetic. This is joint work with Boris Zilber.
