Abstract:

Motivated by Keisler’s order, a far-reaching program of understanding basic model-theoretic structure through the lens of regular ultrapowers, we prove that for a class of regular filters \mathcal{D} on I, |I| = \lambda > \aleph_0, the fact that {\mathcal{P}}(I)/ \mathcal{D} has little freedom (as measured by the fact that any maximal antichain is of size <\lambda, or even countable) does not prevent extending \mathcal{D} to an ultrafilter \mathcal{D}1 on I which saturates ultrapowers of the random graph. “Saturates” means that M^I/\mathcal{D}_1 is \lambda^+-saturated whenever M \models T_{\mathbf{rg}}. This was known to be true for stable theories, and false for non-simple and non-low theories. This result and the techniques introduced in the proof have catalyzed the authors’ subsequent work on Keisler’s order for simple unstable theories. The introduction, which includes a part written for model theorists and a part written for set theorists, discusses our current program and related results. - published version (20p)
