Independence and the finite submodel property

Abstract [en]

We study a class c of aleph(0)-categorical simple structures such that every M in c has uncomplicated forking behavior and such that definable relations in M which do not cause forking are independent in a sense that is made precise; we call structures in c independent. The SU-rank of such M may be n for any natural number n > 0. The most well-known unstable member of c is the random graph, which has SU-rank one. The main result is that for every strongly independent structure M in e, if a sentence phi is true in M then phi is true in a finite substructure of M. The same conclusion holds for every structure in c with SU-rank one: so in this case the word 'strongly' can be removed. A probability theoretic argument is involved and it requires sufficient independence between relations which do not cause forking. A stable structure M belongs to c if and only if it is aleph(0)-categorical, aleph(0)-stable and every definable strictly minimal Subset of M-eq is indiscernible.
