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
