Model Theory
MATH 509
Spring 2008
Section: 01  

The basic results and tools of model theory will be introduced, including the compactness theorem, omitting types, quantifier elimination, model completeness, categoricity and stability theory. Many of the motivating examples for this course arise from algebra; ideally the student should have studied abstract algebra (groups, rings and fields) and some elementary logic (completeness theorem, cardinalities). If time permits, applications of model theory to algebra will be included.
