On Fraïssé's conjecture for linear orders of finite Hausdorff rank

Alberto Marcone, Antonio Montalbán
2009 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
We then show that Fraïssé's conjecture restricted to linear orders of finite Hausdorff rank is provable in ACA + 0 + "ϕ 2 (0) is well-ordered" and, over RCA 0 , implies ACA ′ 0 + "ϕ 2 (0) is well-ordered  ...  We prove that the maximal order type of the wqo of linear orders of finite Hausdorff rank under embeddability is ϕ 2 (0), the first fixed point of the ε-function.  ...  ) of finite Hausdorff rank.  ...

Up to equimorphism, hyperarithmetic is recursive

Antonio Montalbán
2005 Journal of Symbolic Logic (JSL)  
On the way to our main result we prove that a linear ordering has Hausdorff rank less than if and only if it is equimorphic to a recursive one.  ...  As a corollary of our proof we prove that, given a recursive ordinal α, the partial ordering of equimorphism types of linear orderings of Hausdorff rank at most α ordered by embeddablity is recursively  ...  Since every scattered linear ordering is equimorphic to a finite sum of 1s and h-indecomposable linear orderings, for every linear ordering of Hausdorff rank less than or equal to α, there is a σ ∈Â α  ...

The reverse mathematics of wqos and bqos [article]

Alberto Marcone
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The classification from the reverse mathematics viewpoint of both kinds of results provides interesting challenges, and we cover also recent advances on some long standing open problems.  ...  We consider both elementary results (such as the equivalence of different definitions of the concepts, and basic closure properties) and more advanced theorems.  ...  On the other hand, Marcone and Montalbán [MM09] studied the restriction of Fraïssé's conjecture to linear orders of finite Hausdorff rank.  ...

Countably Complementable Linear Orderings

Antonio Montalbán
2007 Order  
Using similar methods and introducing the notion of weakly countably complementable linear orderings, we answer a question posed by Rosenstein and prove the countable case of a conjecture of Hagendorf,  ...  We say that a countable linear ordering L is countably complementable if there exists a linear ordering L, possibly uncountable, such that for any countable linear ordering B, L does not embed into B if  ...  One of them is the celebrated Fraïssé's Conjecture, which states that in L, ordered by embeddability, there are no infinite strictly descending sequences and no infinite antichains.  ...

Equimorphy -- The Case of Chains [article]

C. Laflamme, M. Pouzet, R.Woodrow
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Such structures cannot be expected to be isomorphic, and in this paper we investigate the special case of linear orders, here also called chains.  ...  In particular we provide structure results for chains having less than continuum any isomorphism classes of equimorphic chains.  ...  In particular we assume the reader to be generally familiar with the notion of indecomposability and Hausdorff rank of a linear order although we briefly review these notions below.  ...

The maximal linear extension theorem in second order arithmetic

Alberto Marcone, Richard A. Shore
2011 Archive for Mathematical Logic  
We show that the maximal linear extension theorem for well partial orders is equivalent over RCA_0 to ATR_0.  ...  Analogously, the maximal chain theorem for well partial orders is equivalent to ATR_0 over RCA_0.  ...  In [MM09] the computation of the maximal order type of the scattered linear orders of finite Hausdorff rank is instrumental in the reverse mathematics results about the restriction of Fraïssé's conjecture  ...

A survey of homogeneous structures

2011 Discrete Mathematics  
The structure (Q, <), where < is the usual order on the rationals, is homogeneous.  ...  However the standard method of construction of homogeneous structures, described next, is by Fraissé's Theorem.  ...  They conjecture that this holds for all finitely bounded ω-categorical homogeneous structures.  ...

On better-quasi-ordering classes of partial orders [article]

Gregory McKay
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We provide a method of constructing better-quasi-orders by generalising a technique for constructing operator algebras that was developed by Pouzet.  ...  This generalises theorems of Laver, Corominas and Thomassé regarding σ-scattered linear orders and trees, countable forests and N-free partial orders respectively.  ...  Acknowledgements The author thanks Mirna Džamonja, Yann Pequignot and Raphaël Carroy for extremely helpful discussions and remarks.  ...

Multicoloured Random Graphs: Constructions and Symmetry [article]

Sam Tarzi
2014 arXiv   pre-print
The large number of references should help in making this a resource for anyone interested in beginning research in this or allied fields.  ...  This is a research monograph on constructions of and group actions on countable homogeneous graphs, concentrating particularly on the simple random graph and its edge-coloured variants.  ...  For any g ∈ Aut(L), at most O(n d−1 ) points are fixed by g, since xg = x is a set of linear equations with non-zero rank.  ...
