Stably embedded ordered abelian groups – Pierre Touchard (Università degli Studi della Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli”)


Dipartimento di Matematica, Sala Seminari.


It is well known that in a stable theory, all types are definable. In an unstable context, we can ask (like Cubides and Delon in [CD]) over which models $M$ of a given theory all types are definable. These models are exactly the models which are stably embedded in all elementary extensions (SE for short).

In this talk, we will try to understand SE ordered abelian groups. For this, we will restrict our study to a well-behaved subclasse $\mathcal{C}$ for which we will describe a language of (relative) quantifier elimination derived from the language of Clukers and Halupczok [CH]. Then, we will state our main result, which has the form of a transfer principle: an ordered abelian group in $\mathcal{C}$ is SE if and only if it is maximal, the spine is SE and the regular classes are SE.

This is a joint work with Martina Liccardo (University of Naples) and Martin Hils (University of Münster).
