Abstract:

We consider a class K of structures e.g. trees with \omega+1 levels, metric spaces and mainly, classes of Abelian groups like the one mentioned in the title and the class of reduced separable (Abelian) p-groups. We say M\in K is universal for K if any member N of K of cardinality not bigger than the cardinality of M can be embedded into M. This is a natural, often raised, problem. We try to draw consequences of cardinal arithmetic to nonâ€“existence of universal members for such natural classes. - No downloadable versions available.
