Definable groups and imaginaries in dense pairs of geometric structures

Submission date: 21 July 2018


We study definable groups in dense/codense expansions of geometric theories. We show that under some tame assumptions, definably amenable groups definable in the old language remain amenable in the expansion. Under the same assumptions, we show that the connected component in the expansion agrees with the connected component in the original language. We also analyze imaginaries in the expansion when the underlying theory has disintegrated algebraic closure.
