Abstract

We consider abelian groups with partial decomposition bases in Lδ∞ω for ordinals δ. Jacoby, Leistner, Loth and Str¨ungmann developed a numerical invariant deduced from the classical global Warfield invariant and proved that if two groups have identical modified Warfield invariants and Ulm-Kaplansky invariants up to ωδ for some ordinal δ, then they are equivalent in Lδ∞ω. Here we prove that the modified Warfield invariant is expressible in Lδ∞ω and hence the converse is true for appropriate δ.
