The Classification of Zp -modules with Partial Decomposition Bases in L∞ω
Ulm’s Theorem presents invariants that classify countable abelian torsion groups up to isomorphism. Barwise and Eklof extended this result to the classification of arbitrary abelian torsion groups up to L∞ω-equivalence. In this paper, we extend this classification to a class of mixed Zp-modules which includes all Warfield modules and is closed under L∞ω-equivalence. The defining property of these modules is the existence of what we call a partial decomposition basis, a generalization of the concept of decomposition basis. We prove a complete classification theorem in L∞ω using invariants deduced from the classical Ulm and Warfield invariants.
