    Categoricity for Abstract Classes with Amalgamation.Saharon Shelah - 1999 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 98 (1-3):261-294.
    Let be an abstract elementary class with amalgamation, and Lowenheim Skolem number LS. We prove that for a suitable Hanf number gc0 if χ0 < λ0 λ1, and is categorical inλ1+ then it is categorical in λ0.

    Non-Forking Frames in Abstract Elementary Classes.Adi Jarden & Saharon Shelah - 2013 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 164 (3):135-191.
    The stability theory of first order theories was initiated by Saharon Shelah in 1969. The classification of abstract elementary classes was initiated by Shelah, too. In several papers, he introduced non-forking relations. Later, Shelah [17, II] introduced the good non-forking frame, an axiomatization of the non-forking notion.We improve results of Shelah on good non-forking frames, mainly by weakening the stability hypothesis in several important theorems, replacing it by the almost λ-stability hypothesis: The number of types over a model of cardinality (...)

    The Tree Property at Successors of Singular Cardinals.Menachem Magidor & Saharon Shelah - 1996 - Archive for Mathematical Logic 35 (5-6):385-404.
    Assuming some large cardinals, a model of ZFC is obtained in which $\aleph_{\omega+1}$ carries no Aronszajn trees. It is also shown that if $\lambda$ is a singular limit of strongly compact cardinals, then $\lambda^+$ carries no Aronszajn trees.

    Reflecting Stationary Sets and Successors of Singular Cardinals.Saharon Shelah - 1991 - Archive for Mathematical Logic 31 (1):25-53.
    REF is the statement that every stationary subset of a cardinal reflects, unless it fails to do so for a trivial reason. The main theorem, presented in Sect. 0, is that under suitable assumptions it is consistent that REF and there is a κ which is κ+n -supercompact. The main concepts defined in Sect. 1 are PT, which is a certain statement about the existence of transversals, and the “bad” stationary set. It is shown that supercompactness (and even the failure (...)

    Toward Categoricity for Classes with No Maximal Models.Saharon Shelah & Andrés Villaveces - 1999 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 97 (1-3):1-25.
    We provide here the first steps toward a Classification Theory ofElementary Classes with no maximal models, plus some mild set theoretical assumptions, when the class is categorical in some λ greater than its Löwenheim-Skolem number. We study the degree to which amalgamation may be recovered, the behaviour of non μ-splitting types. Most importantly, the existence of saturated models in a strong enough sense is proved, as a first step toward a complete solution to the o Conjecture for these classes. Further (...)

    On ◁∗-Maximality.Mirna Džamonja & Saharon Shelah - 2004 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 125 (1-3):119-158.
    This paper investigates a connection between the semantic notion provided by the ordering * among theories in model theory and the syntactic SOPn hierarchy of Shelah. It introduces two properties which are natural extensions of this hierarchy, called SOP2 and SOP1. It is shown here that SOP3 implies SOP2 implies SOP1. In Shelah's article 229) it was shown that SOP3 implies *-maximality and we prove here that *-maximality in a model of GCH implies a property called SOP2″. It has been (...)

    The Bounded Proper Forcing Axiom.Martin Goldstern & Saharon Shelah - 1995 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 60 (1):58-73.
    The bounded proper forcing axiom BPFA is the statement that for any family of ℵ 1 many maximal antichains of a proper forcing notion, each of size ℵ 1 , there is a directed set meeting all these antichains. A regular cardinal κ is called Σ 1 -reflecting, if for any regular cardinal χ, for all formulas $\varphi, "H(\chi) \models`\varphi'"$ implies " $\exists\delta . We investigate several algebraic consequences of BPFA, and we show that the consistency strength of the bounded (...)

We give an example of a first order theory T with countable D(T) which cannot have a universal model at ℵ1 without CH; we prove in ZFC a covering theorem from the hypothesis of the existence of a universal model for some theory; and we prove--again in ZFC--that for a large class of cardinals there is no universal linear order (e.g. in every regular $\aleph_1 < (...)

    In this paper we study the question assuming MA+⌝CH does Sacks forcing or Laver forcing collapse cardinals? We show that this question is equivalent to the question of what is the additivity of Marczewski's ideals 0. We give a proof that it is consistent that Sacks forcing collapses cardinals. On the other hand we show that Laver forcing does not collapse cardinals.

    Examples of Non-Locality.John T. Baldwin & Saharon Shelah - 2008 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 73 (3):765-782.
    We use κ-free but not Whitehead Abelian groups to constructElementary Classes (AEC) which satisfy the amalgamation property but fail various conditions on the locality of Galois-types. We introduce the notion that an AEC admits intersections. We conclude that for AEC which admit intersections, the amalgamation property can have no positive effect on locality: there is a transformation of AEC's which preserves non-locality but takes any AEC which admits intersections to one with amalgamation. More specifically we have: Theorem 5.3. There is (...)

    The paper is concerned with the existence of a universal graph at the successor of a strong limit singular μ of cofinality ℵ0. Starting from the assumption of the existence of a supercompact cardinal, a model is built in which for some such μ there are $\mu^{++}$ graphs on μ+ that taken jointly are universal for the graphs on μ+, while $2^{\mu^+} \gg \mu^{++}$ . The paper also addresses the general problem of obtaining a framework for consistency results at the (...)

    In this paper we study elementary submodels of a stable homogeneous structure. We improve the independence relation defined in Hyttinen 167–182). We apply this to prove a structure theorem. We also show that dop and sdop are essentially equivalent, where the negation of dop is the property we use in our structure theorem and sdop implies nonstructure, see Hyttinen.

    A Δ22 Well-Order of the Reals and Incompactness of L.Uri Abraham & Saharon Shelah - 1993 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 59 (1):1-32.
    A forcing poset of size 221 which adds no new reals is described and shown to provide a Δ22 definable well-order of the reals . The encoding of this well-order is obtained by playing with products of Aronszajn trees: some products are special while other are Suslin trees. The paper also deals with the Magidor–Malitz logic: it is consistent that this logic is highly noncompact.

Explicitly, in \S1: (i) We prove that if we add a Laver real, then the old reals have outer measure one. (ii) We (...)

We use versions of being reduced—replacing Q by a subring —and get quite accurate results for the existence of universals in a cardinal, for embeddings and for pure embeddings. Second, we deal with the oak property, a property of (...)

    On Weak and Strong Interpolation in Algebraic Logics.Gábor Sági & Saharon Shelah - 2006 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 71 (1):104 - 118.
    We show that there is a restriction, or modification of the finite-variable fragments of First Order Logic in which a weak form of Craig's Interpolation Theorem holds but a strong form of this theorem does not hold. Translating these results into Algebraic Logic we obtain a finitely axiomatizable subvariety of finite dimensional Representable Cylindric Algebras that has the Strong Amalgamation Property but does not have the Superamalgamation Property. This settles a conjecture of Pigozzi [12].

    Decisive Creatures and Large Continuum.Jakob Kellner & Saharon Shelah - 2009 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 74 (1):73-104.
    For f, g $ \in \omega ^\omega $ let $c_{f,g}^\forall $ be the minimal number of uniform g-splitting trees (or: Slaloms) to cover the uniform f-splitting tree, i.e., for every branch v of the f-tree, one of the g-trees contains v. $c_{f,g}^\exists $ is the dual notion: For every branch v, one of the g-trees guesses v(m) infinitely often. It is consistent that $c_{f \in ,g \in }^\exists = c_{f \in ,g \in }^\forall = k_ \in $ for N₁ many (...)

  50. Martin's Axioms, Measurability and Equiconsistency Results.Jaime I. Ihoda & Saharon Shelah - 1989 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 54 (1):78-94.
    We deal with the consistency strength of ZFC + variants of MA + suitable sets of reals are measurable (and/or Baire, and/or Ramsey). We improve the theorem of Harrington and Shelah [2] repairing the asymmetry between measure and category, obtaining also the same result for Ramsey. We then prove parallel theorems with weaker versions of Martin's axiom (MA(σ-centered), (MA(σ-linked)), MA(Γ + ℵ 0 ), MA(K)), getting Mahlo, inaccessible and weakly compact cardinals respectively. We prove that if there exists r ∈ (...)
