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

A relative of the approachability ideal, diamond and non-saturation

Abstract: Let $\lambda$ denote a singular cardinal. Zeman, improving a previous result of Shelah, proved that $\square^*_\lambda$ together with $2^\lambda=\lambda^+$ implies $\diamondsuit_S$ for every $S\subseteq\lambda^+$ that reflects stationarily often. In this paper, for a subset $S\subset\lambda^+$, a normal subideal of … Continue reading

On guessing generalized clubs at the successors of regulars

Abstract: Konig, Larson and Yoshinobu initiated the study of principles for guessing generalized clubs, and introduced a construction of an higher Souslin tree from the strong guessing principle. Complementary to the author’s work on the validity of diamond and non-saturation … Continue reading

Antichains in partially ordered sets of singular cofinality

Abstract: In their paper from 1981, Milner and Sauer conjectured that for any poset $\mathbb P$, if $\text{cf}(\mathbb P)$ is a singular cardinal $\lambda$, then $\mathbb P$ must contain an antichain of size $\text{cf}(\lambda)$. The main result of of this … Continue reading

The Ostaszewski square, and homogeneous Souslin trees

Abstract: Assume GCH and let $\lambda$ denote an uncountable cardinal. We prove that if $\square_\lambda$ holds, then this may be  witnessed by a coherent sequence $\left\langle C_\alpha \mid \alpha<\lambda^+\right\rangle$ with the following remarkable guessing property: For every sequence $\langle A_i\mid i<\lambda\rangle$ … Continue reading
