### Non-algebraic Zariski geometries

Abstract:

The thesis deals with definability of certain Zariski geometries, introduced by Zilber, in the theory of algebraically closed fields. I axiomatise a class of structures, called abstract linear spaces'', which are a common reduct of these Zariski geometries. I then describe what an interpretation of an abstract linear space in an algebraically closed field looks like. I give a new proof that the structure "quantum harmonic oscillator", introduced by Zilber and Solanki, is not in...
