# Transplendence

## Roman Kossak

### The City University of New York

Resplendence is a very useful form of second order saturation. Transplendence, introduced by Fredrik EngstrÃ¶m and Richard Kaye, is a stronger notion, that guarantees existence of expansions omitting a type. I will give motivation and outline EngstrÃ¶m and Kaye’s general theory of transplendent structures.

Roman Kossak is professor of mathematics at The City University of New York, at Bronx Community College and also at the CUNY Graduate Center. He conducts research in mathematical logic, especially in model theory of Peano Arithmetic.
