Breuillard, Green, Guralnick, and Tao introduced the notion of strongly dense free subgroups of algebraic groups and proved that for every simple algebraic group G over an algebraically closed field of sufficiently high transcendence degree, G has subgroups of this kind. I will describe this work and some recent improvements and generalizations.
