Abstract/Media

I will discuss several notions that are intended to pull classes of finite structures into the framework of ``classical'' model theory. These notions include robust chains (due to Macpherson-Steinhorn) and their cousins robust classes. To give these ideas a context, I will discuss them in relation to (variants of) the finite submodel property, zero-one laws, and (possibly) Ramsey theory.
