Introductory notes
 Luc Bélair, Panorama of padic model theory,
Ann. Sci. Math. Québec. A survey of the literature in the model theory of padic numbers since
Denef's work on the rationality of Poincaré series.
 Zoé Chatzidakis
 Introduction to model theory
(26 pages, format dvi).
These notes introduce very basic concepts of model theory. They contain
some of the material of lectures given at Luminy (November 01).
 Notes on the model theory of finite and pseudofinite fields
(45 pages, format dvi or ps). These notes
contain the material covered during a minicourse which took place at
the UAM (Madrid, Spain), 15  25 November 2005, and was funded by MODNET.
