### LF groups, aec amalgamation, few automorphisms

by Shelah. [Sh:1098]

In section 1 we deal with amalgamation bases, e.g. we define
when an
a.e.c. k has (lambda, kappa)-amalgamation which means
``many'' M in K^k_lambda are amalgamation bases. We
then consider what occurs for the class of lf groups.
In section 2 we deal with weak definability of a in N backslash
M
over M, for bold K_{{exlf}} . In section 3 we deal with
indecomposable members of K_exlf and with the existence
of a universal members of K^k_mu, for mu strong
limit of cofinality aleph_0 . Most note worthy: if
bold K_lf has a universal model in mu then it
has a canonical one similar to the special models, (the parallel
to
saturated ones in their cardinality).
In section 4 we prove ``every G in bold K^lf_{<=
mu} can be extended to a complete (lambda, theta)-full G'' for
many cardinals; we may consider
fixing the outer auto group. In section(0C) we solve a problem
of Heckin
on the automorphism group of the Hall group.
