Set existence axioms for general (not necessarily countable) stability theory

Victor Harnik
1987 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
Set existence axioms for stability theory 233 bounded and we define 2;, II;, A; for i = 0, 1 and j E o as is customarily done in  ...  The aim of this paper is to extend our work [5] by formulating set existence axioms in a general context that can accommodate model theory of arbitrary (not necessarily countable) languages and then  ...  H owever, the distinction between the countable and the general (i.e., not necessarily countable) theory is not very fashionable nowadays, neither in algebra nor in parts of model theory because, except  ...

Book Review: Stability in model theory

Victor Harnik
1989 Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society  
Nowadays, we prefer the shorter name of "w-stability." co-stable theories are not necessarily categorical in some uncountable power but have good algebraic properties.  ...  Notice that L and, hence, T are allowed to have not only countable but also uncountable cardinalities, a fact that increases the scope of model theory.  ...

The Stability Theory of Belief

H. Leitgeb
2014 Philosophical Review  
The theory is based on three assumptions: the logical closure of rational belief; the axioms of probability for rational degrees of belief; and the so-called Lockean thesis, in which the concepts of rational  ...  of rational belief can be built around these principles that is not ad hoc but that has various philosophical features that are plausible independently.  ...  This is not just a random coincidence. From the principles of stability theory, one can derive such correspondence results for conditionalization and belief revision in general; see Leitgeb 2013a.  ...

Remarks on generic stability in independent theories [article]

Gabriel Conant, Kyle Gannon
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In NIP theories, generically stable Keisler measures can be characterized in several ways. We analyze these various forms of "generic stability" in arbitrary theories.  ...  Among other things, we show that the standard definition of generic stability for types coincides with the notion of a frequency interpretation measure.  ...  In NIP theories, although not every type is necessarily definable and finitely satisfiable, the class of types with these properties is still quite resilient, and such types are now referred to as generically  ...

Strategic stability in Poisson games

Francesco De Sinopoli, Claudia Meroni, Carlos Pimienta
2014 Journal of Economic Theory  
Furthermore, we use such a space to define the corresponding strategically stable sets of equilibria.  ...  We show that they satisfy existence, admissibility, and robustness against iterated deletion of dominated strategies and inferior replies.  ...  Every Poisson game has a stable set.Existence of stable sets in Poisson games is a particular case of a more general existence result.  ...

STABILITY OF THE THEORY OF EXISTENTIALLY CLOSED S-ACTS OVER A RIGHT COHERENT MONOID S

JOHN FOUNTAIN, VICTORIA GOULD
2008 Advances in Algebra and Combinatorics  
A general result of model theory says that S has a model companion, denoted by T S , precisely when the class E of existentially closed S-sets is axiomatisable and in this case, T S axiomatises E.  ...  It is known that T S exists and is stable if and only if S is right coherent. In the study of stable first order theories, superstable and totally transcendental theories are of particular interest.  ...  It is not difficult to see that if p ∈ S(∅) (so that necessarily I p = ∅), then for any G-set A there is exactly one extension p A of p in S(A) with I p A = ∅.  ...

Stabilization of port-Hamiltonian systems with discontinuous energy densities

Jochen Schmid

<p style='text-indent:20px;'>We establish an exponential stabilization result for linear port-Hamiltonian systems of first order with quite general, not necessarily continuous, energy densities.  ...  In particular, and in contrast to the previously known stabilization results, our result applies to vibrating strings or beams with jumps in their mass density and their modulus of elasticity.</p>  ...  I would like to thank the German Research Foundation (DFG) for financial support through the grant "Input-to-state stability and stabilization of distributed-parameter systems" (DA 767/7-1).  ...

Strong stochastic stability for non-uniformly expanding maps

JOSÉ F. ALVES, HELDER VILARINHO
2012 Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems  
A weaker form of stochastic stability was established in [AAr03] for a general class of non-uniformly expanding maps, in the sense of convergence of the physical measure to the SRB probability measure  ...  Consequently, we are able to obtain the strong stochastic stability for two examples of non-uniformly expanding maps.  ...  This does not necessarily imply that f is non-uniformly expanding.  ...

On Zilber's field [article]

Ali Bleybel
2014 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we use tools from set theory and the uncountable categoricity of Zilber's pseudo-exponential field to show that Zilber's field is isomorphic to the complex field with (standard) exponentiation  ...  and hence Schanuel's conjecture holds for that field.  ...  For later use, we will assume more generally that M is a countable transitive well founded model of ZFC. (So the conclusions of this section will hold for any such model).  ...

Borovik-Poizat rank and stability [article]

Jeffrey Burdges, Gregory Cherlin
2007 arXiv   pre-print
Poizat raised the issue of the relationship between this notion of rank and stability theory in the following terms: "un groupe de Borovik est une structure stable, alors qu'un univers rangé n'a aucune  ...  These axioms form the basis of the algebraic treatment of groups of finite Morley rank which is common today.  ...  So if the theory of M is unstable, we may suppose that there is a definable relation R on a definable subset X of M eq such that R linearly orders some infinite subset of X, not necessarily definable.  ...
