Abstract:

For a cardinal \kappa and a model {\mathcal M} of cardinality \kappa let {\rm No}({\mathcal M}) denote the number of non-isomorphic models of cardinality \kappa which are L_{\infty\kappa}–equivalent to {\mathcal M}. In [Sh:133] Shelah established that when \kappa is a weakly compact cardinal and \mu \leq \kappa is a nonzero cardinal, there exists a model {\mathcal M} of cardinality \kappa with {\rm No}({\mathcal M})=\mu. We prove here that if \kappa is a weakly compact cardinal, the question of the possible values of {\rm No}({\mathcal M}) for models {\mathcal M} of cardinality \kappa is equivalent to the question of the possible numbers of equivalence classes of equivalence relations which are \Sigma^1_1-definable over V_\kappa. In [ShVa:719] we prove that, consistent wise, the possible numbers of equivalence classes of \Sigma^1_1-equivalence relations can be completely controlled under the singular cardinal hypothesis. These results settle the problem of the possible values of {\rm No}({\mathcal M}) for models of weakly compact cardinality, provided that the singular cardinal hypothesis holds. - published version (30p)
