Abstract

Our aim in this brief survey is to try and give an intuition about abelian varieties to model theorists, working mainly over the complex field. We then try to motivate the Lang conjecture, also called the Mordell-Lang conjecture, showing especially how it generalizes Mordell’s conjecture.
