## 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

## Shelah’s approachability ideal (part 2)

In a previous post, we defined Shelah’s approachability ideal $I[\lambda]$. We remind the reader that a subset $S\subseteq\lambda$ is in $I[\lambda]$ iff there exists a collection $\{ \mathcal D_\alpha\mid\alpha<\lambda\}\subseteq\mathcal [\mathcal P(\lambda)]^{<\lambda}$ such that for club many $\delta\in S$, the union … Continue reading

## Shelah’s approachability ideal (part 1)

Given an infinite cardinal $\lambda$, Shelah defines an ideal $I[\lambda]$ as follows. Definition (Shelah, implicit in here). A set $S$ is in $I[\lambda]$ iff $S\subseteq\lambda$ and there exists a collection $\{ \mathcal D_\alpha\mid\alpha<\lambda\}\subseteq\mathcal [\mathcal P(\lambda)]^{<\lambda}$, and some club $E\subseteq\lambda$, so … 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

## 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
