Abstract:

Let T be a torsion abelian group. We consider the class of all torsion-free abelian groups G satisfying {\rm Ext}(G,T)=0 and search for \lambda-universal objects in this class. We show that for certain T there is no \omega-universal group. However, for uncountable cardinals \lambda there is always a \lambda-universal group if we assume (V=L). Together with results by the second author this solves completely a problem by Kulikov. - Version 2010-10-22_11 (8p) published version (7p)
