Limiting theories of substructures

Submission date: 25 July 2017


We introduce the notion of limiting theories, giving examples and providing a sufficient condition under which the first order theory of a structure is the limit of the first order theories of a collection of substructures. We also give a new proof that theories like that of infinite sets are not finitely axiomatizable.
