Abstract:

Suppose \lambda is a singular cardinal of uncountable cofinality \kappa. For a model M of cardinality \lambda, let No(M) denote the number of isomorphism types of models N of cardinality \lambda which are L_{\infty\lambda}-equivalent to M. In [Sh:189] inverse \kappa-systems A of abelian groups and their certain kind of quotient limits Gr(A)/Fact(A) were considered. It was proved that for every cardinal \mu there exists an inverse \kappa-system A such that A consists of abelian groups having cardinality at most \mu^\kappa and card(Gr(A)/Fact(A))=\mu. In [Sh:228] a strict connection between inverse \kappa-systems and possible values of No was proved. In this paper we show: for every nonzero \mu\leq\lambda^\kappa there is an inverse \kappa-system A of abelian groups having cardinality <\lambda such that card(Gr(A)/Fact(A))= \mu (under the assumptions 2^\kappa<\lambda and \theta^{<\kappa}<\lambda for all \theta<\lambda when \mu>\lambda), with the obvious new consequence concerning the possible value of No. Specifically, the case No(M)=\lambda is possible when \theta^\kappa<\lambda for every \theta<\lambda. - published version (14p)
