Jones’ theorem on the cardinal invariant $\mathfrak p$

This post continues the study of the cardinal invariant $\mathfrak p$. We refer the reader to a previous post for all the needed background. For ordinals $\alpha,\alpha_0,\alpha_1,\beta,\beta_0,\beta_1$, the polarized partition relation $$\left(\begin{array}{c}\alpha\\\beta\end{array}\right)\rightarrow\left(\begin{array}{cc}\alpha_0&\alpha_1\\\beta_0&\beta_1\end{array}\right)$$ asserts that for every coloring $f:\alpha\times\beta\rightarrow 2$, (at least) … Continue reading
