Title: Introduction to good frames in Abstract Elementary Classes, Part 1

Abstract: The central notion of Shelah's book on Abstract Elementary Classes [Sh:h] is the notion of a good $\lambda$-frame. It is a forking like notion for types over models of size $\lambda$ and the existence of it implies that the class is well-behaved in $\lambda$. In this series of talks we will focus on the question of the existence of extensions to models of size greater than $\lambda$. We will prove that under some reasonable hypothesis it is always possible to extend a frame. One interesting corollary of this is the existence of arbitrary large models, this is done within ZFC. The first couple of lectures will be based on [Sh:h] Chapter II, while our main theorem is the main theorem of [Bon14a].
