Model Theory, Algebra and Geometry
by D. Haskell, A. Pillay, C. Steinhorn
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2000
Number of pages: 227
This book gives the necessary background for understanding both the model theory and the mathematics behind the applications. Aimed at graduate students and researchers, it contains introductory surveys by leading experts covering the whole spectrum of contemporary model theory (stability, simplicity, o-minimality and variations), and introducing and discussing the diverse areas of geometry (algebraic, diophantine, real analytic, p-adic, and rigid) to which the model theory is applied.

The purpose of this text is to give a thorough introduction to the methods of model theory for first order logic. Model theory is the branch of logic that deals with mathematical structures and the formal languages they interpret.
by Stephen G. Simpson - The Pennsylvania State University
An important branch of mathematical logic is model theory, the study of first-order theories and the classes of models defined by such theories. This course will include numerous applications of model theory to algebra, especially ordered fields ...

The subject matter of this book constitutes a merging of several directions in general model theory: cardinality quantifiers; infinitary languages; and, finally, that on generalized quantifiers and abstract characterizations of first-order logic.

The skeleton of this book is a science fiction story without the usual mangling of physics. The flesh is composed of non-technical mainstream explanations and examples of the field of mathematics which deals with meaning, called Model Theory.
