Strong failures of higher analogs of Hindman’s Theorem

Joint work with David J. Fernández Bretón. Abstract.  We show that various analogs of Hindman’s Theorem fail in a strong sense when one attempts to obtain uncountable monochromatic sets: Theorem 1. There is a proper class of uncountable cardinals $\kappa$ … Continue reading

Higher Souslin trees and the GCH, revisited

Abstract.  It is proved that for every uncountable cardinal $\lambda$, GCH+$\square(\lambda^+)$ entails the existence of a $\text{cf}(\lambda)$-complete $\lambda^+$-Souslin tree. In particular, if GCH holds and there are no $\aleph_2$-Souslin trees, then $\aleph_2$ is weakly compact in Godel’s constructible universe, improving … Continue reading

A Microscopic approach to Souslin-tree constructions. Part I

Joint work with Ari Meir Brodsky. Abstract.  We propose a parameterized proxy principle from which $\kappa$-Souslin trees with various additional features can be constructed, regardless of the identity of $\kappa$. We then introduce the microscopic approach, which is a simple … Continue reading

Reduced powers of Souslin trees

Joint work with Ari Meir Brodsky. Abstract. We study the relationship between a $\kappa$-Souslin tree $T$ and its reduced powers $T^\theta/\mathcal U$. Previous works addressed this problem from the viewpoint of a single power $\theta$, whereas here, tools are developed … Continue reading

Same Graph, Different Universe

Abstract. May the same graph admit two different chromatic numbers in two different universes? how about infinitely many different values? and can this be achieved without changing the cardinals structure? In this paper, it is proved that in Godel’s constructible … Continue reading

Chromatic numbers of graphs – large gaps

Abstract. We say that a graph $G$ is $(\aleph_0,\kappa)$-chromatic if $\text{Chr}(G)=\kappa$, while $\text{Chr}(G’)\le\aleph_0$ for any subgraph $G’$ of $G$ of size $<|G|$. The main result of this paper reads as follows. If  $\square_\lambda+\text{CH}_\lambda$ holds for a given uncountable cardinal $\lambda$, … Continue reading

Jensen’s diamond principle and its relatives

This is chapter 6 in the book Set Theory and Its Applications (ISBN: 0821848127). Abstract: We survey some recent results on the validity of Jensen’s diamond principle at successor cardinals. We also discuss weakening of this principle such as club … Continue reading

A cofinality-preserving small forcing may introduce a special Aronszajn tree

Extended Abstract: Shelah proved that Cohen forcing introduces a Souslin tree; Jensen proved that a c.c.c. forcing may consistently add a Kurepa tree; Todorcevic proved that a Knaster poset may already force the Kurepa hypothesis; Irrgang introduced a c.c.c. notion … Continue reading

Openly generated Boolean algebras and the Fodor-type reflection principle

Joint work with Sakaé Fuchino. Abstract: We prove that the Fodor-type Reflection Principle (FRP) is equivalent to the assertion that any Boolean algebra is openly generated if and only if it is $\aleph _2$-projective. Previously it was known that this … Continue reading

The failure of diamond on a reflecting stationary set

Joint work with Moti Gitik. Abstract: It is shown that the failure of $\diamondsuit_S$, for a subset $S\subseteq\aleph_{\omega+1}$ that reflects stationarily often, is consistent with GCH and $\text{AP}_{\aleph_\omega}$, relatively to the existence of a supercompact cardinal. This should be comapred with … Continue reading
