Loftiness IV

I will discuss more work of Kaufmann and Schmerl around loftiness. In particular I will discuss how in the definition of e-loftiness we may restrict our attention to only those types that define cuts. These consideration lead to a simple proof of a theorem of Pabion’s that for kappa an uncountable cardinal a model M of PA is kappa-saturated if and only if its underlying ordering is kappa-saturated. Time permitting I will also discuss how for countable models M, being lofty is equivalent to having a recursively saturated simple extension.

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.
