The uniqueness case
This paper is part of the revision of the classification of
the finite simple groups. The aim is to give a solution of the so
called "uniqueness case problem". Originally this problem was
solved by M. Aschbacher. We do not follow his proof. The
proof given in this paper uses the amalgam method, which has been
used successfully in many places for dealing with weak closure.
