Abstract:

We show in §1 that the Ax-Kochen isomorphism theorem requires the continuum hypothesis. Most of the applications of this theorem are insensitive to set theoretic considerations. (A probable exception is the work of Moloney.) In §2 we give an unrelated result on cuts in models of Peano arithmetic which answers a question on the ideal structure of countable ultraproducts of {\mathbb Z}. In §1 we also answer a question of Keisler and Schmerl regarding Scott complete ultrapowers of {\mathbb R}. - published version (40p)
