Ultra-Universal Models

Authors: Colin Naturman, Henry Rose
Comments: 10 Pages.

The concept of ultra-universal algebras in varieties is generalized to models of first order theories. Characterizations of theories which have ulta-universal models are found and general examples of ultra-universal models are investigated. In particular we show that a theory has an ultra-universal model iff it is consistent and its class of models satisfies the joint embedding property.

Difficulties of the Set of Natural Numbers

Authors: Qiu Kui Zhang
Comments: 10 Pages.

In this article some difficulties are deduced from the set of natural numbers. The demonstrated difficulties suggest that if the set of natural numbers exists it would conflict with the axiom of regularity. As a result, we have the conclusion that the class of natural numbers is not a set but a proper class.
