Constructing many atomic models in ℵ_1

Submission date: 1 March 2015.


We introduce the notion of pseudo-algebraicity to study atomic models of first order theories (equivalently models of a complete sentence of L_{ω_1,ω}).
Theorem: Let T be any complete first-order theory in a countable language with an atomic model. If the pseudo-minimal types are not dense, then there are 2^{ℵ_1} pairwise non-isomorphic atomic models of T, each of size ℵ_1.
