A survey of basic stability theory, with particular emphasis on orthogonality and regular types
A selfcontained exposition is given of a part of stability theory in model theory, the part that deals with the concepts of orthogonality, weight and regularity. The necessary background from earlier parts of stability theory is explained but proofs in this part are given in outline only or not at all.
