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.
