Abstract

 

(Joint with Gareth Boxall) In this talk I will introduce some properties of distal theories. I will remark that distality is preserved neither under reducts nor expansions of the language. I will then go on to discuss a recent result that the Shelah expansion of a theory is distal if and only if the theory itself is distal.

Abstract

Roelcke precompact groups are exactly the topological groups that can be realized as automorphism groups of omega-categorical structures (in continuous logic). In this talk, I will discuss a model-theoretic framework for the study of those groups and their dynamical systems as well as two concrete applications. The talk is based on joint work with Itaï Ben Yaacov and Tomás Ibarlucía.
