Title: Some Model Theory of Torsion Modules

Abstract: We explore some model theory of torsion modules, first over commutative rings and then specializing to PIDs. Despite being a nonelementary class, there is a high degree of ``compactness'' in the guise of tameness and type shortness. We conclude by looking at some examples of various torsion abelian groups and applying various independence relations proposed for AECs.
