Research Activities

This research programme deals essentially with finding new examples of simple theories using generic structure. It will also investigate general model theoretic properties os such structures and their applications in the classification of analytical structures. First, regarding the connection of generic structures to simple theories, this project will tackle the problem of finding some generalisations for the Independence Theorem Diagrams (ITD). This will lay sufficient ground for finding generic structures which have first order simple theories. Second, this project will seek to find a counterexample for the Stable Forking Conjecture. This will enable us to find a unprecedented simple theories whoes forking geometries are different from those of stable ones. Third, this project intends to probe the quality of the Lascar Strong types with Strong types under any generalisation of the ITD. This will justify the use of non-eliminable hyperimaginary elements, thus providing richer examples of simple theories. Fourth, this project will investigate the logical complexity of the full first order theory of {C>0,<=*}-generic theory and its simplicity. This research programme will also apply generic structures to some mathematical structures. First, using generic structures and stability concepts, we intend to study model theoretic properties of field of complex number with exponentiation. Second, this project shall explore the specific analytic O-minimal expansions of the field of real number using generic structures. This work will enable us to make progress towards understanding model theoretic properties of these analytic structures (using stability method) whose subtle connections with generic structures were first identified by Zilber.
