1533. Alice Medvedev, Alexander Van Abel Variations on the Feferman-Vaught Theorem, with applications to ∏_p
𝔽_p E-mail: Submission date: 7 December 2018 Abstract: Using the Feferman-Vaught Theorem, we prove that a definable subset of a product structure must be a Boolean combination of open sets, in the product topology induced by giving each factor structure the discrete topology. We prove a converse of the Feferman-Vaught theorem for families of structures with certain properties, including families of integral domains. We use these results to obtain characterizations of the definable subsets of ∏_p 𝔽_p -- in particular, every formula is equivalent to a Boolean combination of ∃∀∃ formulae.
