A note on the non-existence of prime models of theories of pseudo-finite fields

Submission date: 12 April 2020


We show that if a field A is not pseudo-finite, then there is no prime model of the theory of pseudo-finite fields over A. Assuming GCH, we generalise this result to κ-prime models, for κ a regular uncountable cardinal or ℵ_ε.
