Model theory is the branch of mathematical logic dealing with the connection between a formal language and its interpretations, or models, i.e., it represents links between syntactic and semantic objects. These objects can be used to classify each others producing structural classifications of theories and their models. Solving classification questions valuable characteristics arise (dimensions, ranks, complexities, spectra etc.) for various classes of structures and their theories.
