Abstract:

For an infinite cardinal \kappa, let {\rm ded}\kappa denote the supremum of the number of Dedekind cuts in linear orders of size \kappa. It is known that \kappa<{\rm ded}\kappa \leq2^{\kappa} for all \kappa and that {\rm ded}\kappa< 2^{\kappa} is consistent for any \kappa of uncountable cofinality. We prove however that 2^{\kappa}\leq{\rm ded}\left( {\rm ded}\left({\rm ded}\left({\rm ded} \kappa\right)\right)\right) always holds. Using this result we calculate the Hanf numbers for the existence of two-cardinal models with arbitrarily large gaps and for the existence of arbitrarily large models omitting a type in the class of countable dependent first-order theories. Specifically, we show that these bounds are as large as in the class of all countable theories. - Version 2014-12-30_11 (15p) published version (14p)
