Book Review: Existentially closed groups

Kenneth Hickin
1990 Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society  
After some preliminaries, Chapters 5 and 6 develop some algebraic applications of the Higman embedding theorem and its generalized version (which is deduced in the text).  ...  An existentially closed structure E for a class of algebraic systems S is a sort of "universal structure for Z-relations" in the sense that £EI and every finite set of equalities and inequalities (that  ...

Formal Logic 37 (1996), no. 4, 613-624.  ...  We suggest certain general conditions on K under which (1) the Higman theorem implies the generalized Higman theorem; (2) a finitely generated K-algebra A is embeddable into every existen- tially closed  ... 

On nilpotent groups of exponent p

Berthold J Maier
1989 Journal of Algebra  
If a model companion exists it is to LX what the theory of algebraically closed fields is to the class of fields.  ...  By 3.7 it remains to show that T is existentially closed in K". This follows from (II) and (III) as in 3.6.  ...

On countable locally described structures

Berthold J. Maier
1987 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
The main theorems of the general theory give characterizations for (1) the uniqueness, up to isomorphism, of the countable closed structure and (2) the existence of a countable saturated structure.  ...  In LX we study (1) closed structures also known as basically saturated structures which are algebraic analogues of existentially closed structures and (2) saturated structures which are algebraic analogues  ...  A closed structure is existentially closed. Therefore, in a closed group G in Nc + the upper and lower central series coincide [20, Theorem 1] .  ...

Decision procedure of some relevant logics: a constructive perspective

Jacques Riche
2005 Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics  
A. Urquhart's pen and paper solution that relies on a sophisticated algebraic and geometric treatment of the problem shows the usefulness of an algebraic approach in Logic.  ...  Meyer has shown equivalent to Dickson's lemma in number theory and to his own infinite divisor lemma, henceforth, Meyer's lemma or IDP.  ...  It suffices to show that every such chain in the set A n of infinite sequences of N k has a glb. And it is the case from the proof of IDP in [RIC 98].  ...

Introduction to Sofic and Hyperlinear groups and Connes' embedding conjecture [article]

Valerio Capraro, Martino Lupini
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The aim of these notes is to present in a uniform and accessible way some cornerstone results in the study of sofic and hyperlinear groups and the Connes embedding conjecture.  ...  In this case the famous conjecture due to Connes (commonly known as the Connes embedding conjecture) that any II_1 factor can be approximated in a suitable sense by matrix algebras inspired several breakthroughs  ...  This is the content of a theorem proven in the setting of the usual first order logic by Loś in [109] . Its generalization to the logic for metric structures can be found in [13] (Theorem 5.4).  ...

Book Review: Fundamentals of generalized recursion theory

If Cantor's so-called generalizations of numbers are viewed as such extensions to infinite sets and well orderings and not as competing with Higher Arithmetic (say, of ideals or algebraic number fields  ...  Should I add that it is well organized, has good indices, and no misprints?

Deciding Piecewise Testable Separability for Regular Tree Languages

Jean Goubault-Larrecq, Sylvain Schmitz, Marc Herbstritt
2016 International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming  
We prove a general characterisation of piecewise testable separability on languages in a well-quasiorder, in terms of ideals of the ordering.  ...  In the case of finite ranked trees ordered by homeomorphic embedding, we show using effective representations for tree ideals that it entails the decidability of piecewise testable separability when the  ...  97:13 to the growing body of algorithmic applications of downwards-closed sets and ideals of wellquasi-orders in logic and verification, e.g. in forward analysis [13, 14] , backward analysis [21] , inference  ...

The reverse mathematics of wqos and bqos [article]

Alberto Marcone
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we survey wqo and bqo theory from the reverse mathematics perspective.  ...  We consider both elementary results (such as the equivalence of different definitions of the concepts, and basic closure properties) and more advanced theorems.  ...  To prove our theorem first notice that Kruskal's theorem generalizes Higman's theorem, so that we can argue in ACA 0 .  ...

It has been proved that (in A-calculus or Combinatory Logic) every recursively enumerable set of ground terms that is closed under conversion has the form {MIPM ~* Q} for some P and Q.  ...  Robertson and Seymour [Robertson and Seymour, 1982] have achieved a similar theorem for undirected graphs.

Real Computational Universality: The Word Problem for a class of groups with infinite presentation [article]

Martin Ziegler, Klaus Meer
2006 arXiv   pre-print
The word problem for discrete groups is well-known to be undecidable by a Turing Machine; more precisely, it is reducible both to and from and thus equivalent to the discrete Halting Problem.  ...  Most important, the free group will be generated by an uncountable set of generators with index running over certain sets of real numbers.  ...  Many of the known computability and complexity results in the BSS model are closely related to computational problems of semi-algebraic sets.  ...

Uniform interpolation and compact congruences

Samuel J. van Gool, George Metcalfe, Constantine Tsinakis
2017 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
Uniform interpolation properties are defined for equational consequence in a variety of algebras and related to properties of compact congruences on first the free and then the finitely presented algebras  ...  It is also shown, following related results of Ghilardi and Zawadowski, that a combination of these properties provides a sufficient condition for the first-order theory of the variety to admit a model  ...  By Higman's embedding theorem, there exists a finitely presented group H and an embedding j : G → H. Choose a finite generating set A ⊆ H which contains jp(y) for every y ∈ y.  ...
