Stable types in rosy theories Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We study the behaviour of stable types in rosy theories. The main technical result is that a non-þ-forking extension of an unstable type is unstable. We apply this to show that a rosy group with a þ-generic stable type is stable. In the context of super-rosy theories of finite rank we conclude that non-trivial stable types of Uþ-rank 1 must arise from definable stable sets.
