Abstract:

The theme of the first two sections, is to prepare the framework of how from a “complicated” family of so called index models I \in K_1 we build many and/or complicated structures in a class K_2. The index models are characteristically linear orders, trees with \kappa+1 levels (possibly with linear order on the set of successors of a member) and linearly ordered graphs; for this we formulate relevant complicatedness properties (called bigness).In the third section we show stronger results concerning linear orders. If for each linear order I of cardinality \lambda > \aleph_0 we can attach a model M_I \in K_\lambda in which the linear order can be embedded such that for enough cuts of I, their being omitted is reflected in M_I, then there are 2^\lambda non-isomorphic cases. We also do the work for some applications.
