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.Date: Monday, October 6, 2014Time: 5:00 pmLocation: Wean Hall 8220Submitted by:  Grossberg
