Distributive Aronszajn trees

Joint work with Ari Meir Brodsky. Abstract.  Ben-David and Shelah proved that if $\lambda$ is a singular strong-limit cardinal and $2^\lambda=\lambda^+$, then $\square^*_\lambda$ entails the existence of a $\lambda$-distributive $\lambda^+$-Aronszajn tree. Here, it is proved that the same conclusion remains … Continue reading

The eightfold way

Joint work with James Cummings, Sy-David Friedman, Menachem Magidor, and Dima Sinapova. Abstract. Three central combinatorial properties in set theory are the tree property, the approachability property and stationary reflection. We prove the mutual independence of these properties by showing … Continue reading

More notions of forcing add a Souslin tree

Joint work with Ari Meir Brodsky. Abstract.   An $\aleph_1$-Souslin tree is a complicated combinatorial object whose existence cannot be decided on the grounds of ZFC alone. But 15 years after Tennenbaum and independently Jech devised notions of forcing for introducing … Continue reading
