This course is a natural continuation of the first semester Model Theory course. It will seek to understand and classify the models of a given 1st order theory through the types that can be realized or omitted.


  • Spaces of types.
  • Saturated models, homogeneous models.
  • Type omission theorem.
  • Atomic models, prime models.
  • Omega-categorical theories, Ryll-Nardzewski's theorem.
  • Stable and omega-stable theories. Strongly minimal sets.
  • Indescernible sequences and sets.
  • Kappa-categorical theories. Morley and Baldwin-Lachlan theorems.
