Advanced Mathematical Logic: Model Theory (V4A7)
Lecturers
- Dr. Philipp Lücke
- Dr. Philipp Schlicht
Time and Date
- Lecture: Tuesday 10.15 - 12.00 and Thursday 8.15-10.00, seminar room 0.011 (there was an additional lecture on Wednesday 8.11. 10.15-12.00)
- Tutorial: Monday 9.30-11.00, seminar room 0.011, Andreas Lietz
We ask that you get at least around 50% of the points in the exercises to be admitted to the final oral exam. It's ok to submit the solutions in groups of two, only if you cannot find a partner in groups of three.
Contents
Model theory studies classes of models of a first-order theory, for instance groups, fields and graphs, and their abstract properties. An example of such a property is categoricity in a cardinal - the condition that there is exactly one model of this size up to isomorphism. We will study various topics in model theory - possible topics include quantifier elimination, types, categorical theories, Morleyâ€™s theorem, stability theory. Model theory is strongly connected with and motivated by algebraic examples, which we will study in the lecture. The following lecture notes might contain mistakes.
