## Rectangular square-bracket operation for successor of regular cardinals

Joint work with Stevo Todorcevic. Extended Abstract: Consider the coloring statement $\lambda^+\nrightarrow[\lambda^+;\lambda^+]^2_{\lambda^+}$ for a given regular cardinal $\lambda$: In 1990, Shelah proved the above for $\lambda>2^{\aleph_0}$; In 1991, Shelah proved the above for $\lambda>\aleph_1$; In 1997, Shelah proved the above … Continue reading

## Transforming rectangles into squares, with applications to strong colorings

Abstract: It is proved that every singular cardinal $\lambda$ admits a function $\textbf{rts}:[\lambda^+]^2\rightarrow[\lambda^+]^2$ that transforms rectangles into squares. That is, whenever $A,B$ are cofinal subsets of $\lambda^+$, we have $\textbf{rts}[A\circledast B]\supseteq C\circledast C$, for some cofinal subset $C\subseteq\lambda^+$. As a … Continue reading
