Monadic stability and growth rates of ω-categorical structures

Submission date: 10 October 2019


For M ω-categorical and stable, we investigate the growth rate of M, i.e. the number of orbits of Aut(M) on n-sets, or equivalently the number of n-substructures of M after performing quantifier elimination. We show that monadic stability corresponds to a gap in the spectrum of growth rates, from slower than exponential to faster than exponential. This allows us to give a nearly complete description of the spectrum of slower than exponential growth rates (without the assumption of stability), confirming some longstanding conjectures of Macpherson and reproving some known results.
