Abstract In connection with the work of Anscombe, Macpherson, Steinhorn and the present author in [1] we investigate the notion of a multidimensional exact class (R-mec), a special kind of multidimensional asymptotic class (R-mac) with measuring functions that yield the exact sizes of definable sets, not just approximations. We use results about smooth approximation [24] and Lie coordinatization [13] to prove the following result (Theorem 4.6.4), as conjectured by Macpherson: For any countable… Expand

Model theory of multidimensional asymptotic classes
In this PhD thesis we explore the concept of a multidimensional asymptotic class. This is a new notion in model theory, arising as a generalisation of the Elwes–Macpherson–Steinhorn notion of anExpand
Finite Structures with Few Types
I will report on joint work with G. Cherlin on the quasi-finite axiomatizability of smoothly approximable structures, and on finite structures with few types. Let L be a finite language, k anExpand
Model theory of finite and pseudofinite rings
The model theory of finite and pseudofinite fields as well as the model theory of finite and pseudofinite groups have been and are thoroughly studied. A close relation has been found betweenExpand
Generalised stability of ultraproducts of finite residue rings
We study ultraproducts of finite residue rings $\underset{n\in\mathbb{N}}{\prod}\mathbb{Z}/n\mathbb{Z} \diagup \mathcal{U} $ where $\mathcal{U}$ is a non-principal ultrafilter. We find sufficientExpand
Finite and Algorithmic Model Theory: Definability in classes of finite structures
This paper provides an overview of recent work by the authors and others on two topics in the model theory of finite structures. The point of view here differs from that usually associated with theExpand
Combinatorics with definable sets: Euler characteristics and Grothendieck rings
TLDR
The existence of universal strong Euler characteristic on a structure is proved and the dependence of the Grothendieck ring on the theory of the structure is investigated and a few counterexamples are investigated. Expand
ONE-DIMENSIONAL ASYMPTOTIC CLASSES OF FINITE STRUCTURES
A collection C of finite L-structures is a 1-dimensional asymptotic class if for every m ∈ N and every formula φ(x, y), where y = (y 1 ,...,y m ): (i) There is a positive constant C and a finite setExpand
On countable stable structures which are homogeneous for a finite relational language
LetL be a finite relational language andH(L) denote the class of all countable structures which are stable and homogeneous forL in the sense of Fraissé. By convention countable includes finite andExpand
Pseudofinite structures and simplicity
TLDR
A notion of pseudofinite dimension, introduced by Hrushovski and Wagner, on an infinite ultraproduct of finite structures is explored, and a measure-theoretic condition is shown to be equivalent to local stability. Expand
Model theory : an introduction
This book is a modern introduction to model theory which stresses applications to algebra throughout the text. The first half of the book includes classical material on model construction techniques,Expand
