Language, Logic and Nonelementary Classes: External/Internal Interactions. Helsinki, 5/16.

A minicourse in Helsinki on Language, Logic and Nonelementary Classes: External/Internal Interactions, given at the University of Helsinki’s Mathematics Department in May of 2016.

The topics were

  • Around The Presentation Theorem
  • The Small Index Property for Homogeneous Classes
  • Categories, AECs, Interpolation.

Here is the course material (presented on the blackboard).

Model Theory of Abstract Elementary Classes: some recent trends. Tehran, 11/15

Here are (very sketchy) notes for a minicourse called Model Theory of Abstract Elementary Classes: some recent trends. I gave that minicourse at the IPM in November 2015. The four two-hour sessions were:

  • Day 1: The early days of AECs
  • Day 2: Stability Theory of AECs
  • Day 3: Stability Theory of AECs (II)
  • Day 4: Connections with Set Theory
  • Appendix: more examples
