Abstract:

We find new “reasons" for a class of models for not having a universal model in a cardinal \lambda. This work, though has consequences in model theory, is really in combinatorial (set theory). We concentrate on a prototypical class which is a simply defined class of models, of combinatorial character - models of T_{\rm ceq} (essentially another representation of T_{\rm feq} which was already considered but the proof with T_{\rm ceq} is more transparent). Models of T_{\rm ceq} consist essentially of an equivalence relation on one set and a family of choice functions for it. This class is not simple (in the model theoretic sense) but seems to be very low among the non-simple (first order complete countable) ones. We give sufficient conditions for the non-existence of a universal model for it in \lambda. This work is continued in [Sh:F2071]. - Version 2022-03-26 (24p)
