Deciding whether a relation defined in Presburger logic can be defined in weaker logics. (English) Zbl 1158.03007
The author defines a structure ${\cal M}_2$ to be decidable in a structure ${\cal M}_1$ (for ${\cal M}_1$, ${\cal M}_2$ on the same domain and such that each basic relation of ${\cal M}_2$ is definable in ${\cal M}_1$) if it is decidable for a relation first-order definable in ${\cal M}_1$ whether it is first-order definable in ${\cal M}_2$. For ${\cal M}_1$ being Presburger arithmetic (both on $\Bbb N$ and $\Bbb Z$), he shows that all ${\cal M}_2$ built taking at least two of the three types of basic relations $(x\geq c)$, $(x-y\geq c)$ and $(x=b$ mod $a)$ are decidable in Presburger arithmetic.
