Abstract: We show that a connected group interpretable in a compact complex manifold (a meromorphic group) is definably an extension of a complex torus by a linear algebraic group, generalizing results of Fujiki. A special case of this result, as well as one of the ingredients in the proof, is that a strongly minimal modular meromorphic group is a complex torus, answering a question of Hrushovski. As a consequence, we show that a simple compact complex manifold has algebraic and Kummer dimension zero if and only if its generic type is trivial.
