259. Elisabetta Pastori and Pablo Spiga Failure on n-uniqueness: a family of examples E-mail: Submission date: 2 July 2010. Abstract: In this paper, the connections between model theory and the theory of infinite permutation groups are used to study the n-existence and the n-uniqueness for n-amalgamation problems of stable theories. We show that, for any n>1, there exists a stable theory having (k+1)-existence and k-uniqueness, for every k< n+1, but has neither (n+2)-existence nor (n+1)-uniqueness. In particular, this generalizes the example, for n=2, due to E.Hrushovski.
