Recursive definability of the standard cut
The CUNY Graduate Center
Say that the standard cut in a model of arithmetic is recursively definable if there is a recursive sequence coinitial in the nonstandard elements. We will construct minimal models in which the standard cut is recursively definable and minimal models in which the standard cut is not recursively definable.
