Reconstruction of homogeneous relational structures

Submission date: 4 January 2007


Results are obtained on the question: if two omega-categorical structures have automorphism groups which are isomorphic as abstract groups, are the structures bi-interpretable? (In full generality, the answer is known to be negative.) The methods combine an approach of Rubin, comeagre conjugacy classes, and results of Hrushovski and Herwig on extending partial isomorphisms.
