Abstract: | This paper is about omitting types in logic of metric structures introduced by Ben Yaacov, Berenstein, Henson and Usvyatsov. While a complete type is omissible in some model of a countable complete theory if and only if it is not principal, this is not true for the incomplete types by a result of Ben Yaacov. We prove that there is no simple test for determining whether a type is omissible in a model of a theory T in a countable language. More precisely, we find a theory in a countable language such that the set of types omissible in some of its models is a complete ∑21 set and a complete theory in a countable language such that the set of types omissible in some of its models is a complete π11 set. Two more unexpected examples are given: (i) a complete theory T and a countable set of types such that each of its finite sets is jointly omissible in a model of T, but the whole set is not and (ii) a complete theory and two types that are separately omissible, but not jointly omissible, in its models. |
