1653. Krzysztof Krupinski and Anand Pillay
On the topological dynamics of automorphism groups; a model-theoretic perspective

Submission date: 29 September 2019


We give a model-theoretic treatment of the fundamental results of Kechris-Pestov-Todorčević theory in the more general context of automorphism groups of not necessarily countable structures. One of the main points is a description of the universal ambit as a certain space of types in an expanded language. Using this, we recover various results of Kechris-Pestov-Todorčević, Moore, Ngyuen Van Thé, in the context of automorphism groups of not necessarily countable structures, as well as Zucker.
