Model theory of derivation spaces

Kasal, Özcan
In this thesis, the notion of the derivation spaces is introduced. In a suitable two-sorted language, the first order theory of these structures is studied. In particular, it is shown that the theory is not companionable. In the last section, the language is expanded by predicate symbols for a dependence relation. In this language it is shown that the extension of the corresponding theory has a model companion. It is shown that the model companion is a complete, unstable theory which does not eliminate quantifiers.
