The model theory of Commutative Near Vector Spaces

Submission date: 17 July 2018


In this paper we study near vector spaces over a commutative F from a model theoretic point of view. In this context we show regular near vector spaces are in fact vector spaces. We find that near vector spaces are not first order axiomatisable, but that finite block near vector spaces are. In the latter case we establish quantifier elimination, and that the theory is controlled by which elements of the pointwise additive closure of F are automorphisms of the near vector space.
