1. Sahota, Davender S. Borel Complexity of the Isomorphism Relation for O-minimal Theories.

Degree: 2013, University of Illinois – Chicago

In 1988, Mayer published a strong form of Vaught's Conjecture for o-minimal theories. She showed Vaught's Conjecture holds, and characterized the number of countable models of an o-minimal theory T if T has fewer than continuum many countable models. Friedman and Stanley have shown that several elementary classes are Borel complete. In this thesis we address the class of countable models of an o-minimal theory T when T has continuum many countable models. Our main result gives a model theoretic dichotomy describing the Borel complexity of isomorphism on the class of countable models of T. The first case is if T has no simple types, isomorphism is Borel on the class of countable models of T. In the second case, T has a simple type over a finite set A, and there is a finite set B containing A such that the class of countable models of the completion of T over B is Borel complete.

2. Powers, Brian Reed. An Analysis of Multivariate Final-Offer Arbitration.

Degree: 2016, University of Illinois – Chicago

When negotiations fail, arbitration is often an effective means by which a binding resolution can be found. To address the many shortcomings of conventional arbitration, many industries have been using a variation called Final-Offer Arbitration since the 1970s. The mechanics are simple - rather than crafting a compromise, the judge must choose one of the two final offers proposed by the parties. Variants of the single-issue arbitration scenario, modeled as a two-player game, have been studied, but very little has been said about the game theoretic properties of the multi-issue case. In this work we define various game models for two or more issues under arbitration, study the conditions under which optimal pure strategies exist, derive these strategies, and in some cases prove that they are the unique globally optimal strategies. In particular, we look at modeling the uncertainty of arbitrator behavior with either a normal or uniform distribution, and consider a number of metrics the judge may use to make his ruling.
