I will discuss recent work of Shelah around the general problem of how the underlying order type of a model of PA may determine influence its isomorphism type as a full model of PA.

Professor Dolich (Ph.D. 2002 University of Maryland, M.A. Columbia University, B.A. University of Pennsylvania) held a VIGRE Van Vleck Assistant Professorship at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, before coming to the New York area, where he now holds an Assistant Professor position at Kingsborough CC of CUNY. Professor Dolich conducts research in model theory, simple theories, and o-minimal theories with secondary interests in algebraic geometry and set theory.
