Limit Models in Strictly Stable Abstract Elementary Classes

Submission date: 19 August 2015.


In this paper, we examine the locality condition for non-splitting and determine the level of uniqueness of limit models that can be recovered in some stable, but not superstable, abstract elementary classes. In particular we prove:

Suppose that K is an abstract elementary class satisfying
1. the joint embedding and amalgamation properties with no maximal model of cardinality μ.
2. stability in μ.
3. κ_{μ}(K)<μ^+.
4. continuity for non-μ-splitting (i.e. if p in gS(M) and M is a limit model witnessed by < M_i | i<α > for some limit ordinal α < μ^+ and there exists N so that p \restriction M_i does not μ-split over N for all i<α, then p does not μ-split over N).
For θ and δ limit ordinals <μ^+ both with cofinality ≥ κ_{μ}(K), if K satisfies symmetry for non-μ-splitting (or just (μ,δ)-symmetry), then, for any M_1 and M_2 that are (μ,θ) and (μ,δ)-limit models over M_0, respectively, we have that M_1 and M_2 are isomorphic over M_0.
