Modeltheoretic stability and superstability in classes of modules
Abstract: Dividing lines in complete firstorder theories were introduced by Shelah in the early seventies. A dividing line is a property such that the classes satisfying such a property have some nice behaviour while those not satisfying it have a bad one. Two of the best understood dividing lines are those of stability and superstability. In this talk, I will study the notion of stability and superstability in abstract elementary classes of modules with respect to pure embeddings, i.e., classes of the form (K,≤p) where K is a class of Rmodules for a fixed ring R and ≤p is the pure submodule relation. In particular, using that the class of pgroups with pure embed dings is a stable AEC, I will present a solution to Problem 5.1 in page 181 of Abelian Groups by Laszlo Fuchs. Moreover, I will show how the notion of superstability can be used to give new characterizations of noetherian rings, puresemisimple rings, and perfect rings.
