Isolated types in a weakly minimal set

Journal of Symbolic Logic 52 (2):543-547 (1987)


Theorem A. Let T be a small superstable theory, A a finite set, and ψ a weakly minimal formula over A which is contained in some nontrivial type which does not have Morley rank. Then ψ is contained in some nonalgebraic isolated type over A. As an application we prove Theorem B. Suppose that T is small and superstable, A is finite, and there is a nontrivial weakly minimal type p ∈ S(A) which does not have Morley rank. Then the prime model over A is not minimal over A
