### Abstract

Effective model theory studies model theoretic notions with an eye towards issues of computability and effectiveness. We consider two possible starting points. If the basic objects are taken to be theories, then the appropriate effective version investigates decidable theories (the set of theorems is computable) and decidable structures (ones with decidable theories). If the objects of initial interest are typical mathematical structures, then the starting point is computable structures. We present an introduction to both of these aspects of effective model theory organized roughly around the themes of the number and types of models of theories with particular attention to categoricity (as either a hypothesis or a conclusion) and the analysis of various computability issues in families of models.
