## A forcing axiom deciding the generalized Souslin Hypothesis

Joint work with Chris Lambie-Hanson. Abstract. We derive a forcing axiom from the conjunction of square and diamond, and present a few applications, primary among them being the existence of super-Souslin trees. It follows that for every uncountable cardinal $\lambda$, … Continue reading

## 6th European Set Theory Conference, July 2017

I gave a 3-lecture tutorial at the 6th European Set Theory Conference in Budapest, July 2017. Title: Strong colorings and their applications. Abstract. Consider the following questions. Is the product of two $\kappa$-cc partial orders again $\kappa$-cc? Does there exist … Continue reading

## ASL North American Meeting, March 2017

I gave a plenary talk at the 2017 ASL North American Meeting in Boise, March 2017. Talk Title: The current state of the Souslin problem. Abstract: Recall that the real line is that unique separable, dense linear ordering with no endpoints in … Continue reading

## Set Theory and its Applications in Topology, September 2016

I gave an invited talk at the Set Theory and its Applications in Topology meeting, Oaxaca, September 11-16, 2016. The talk was on the $\aleph_2$-Souslin problem. If you are interested in seeing the effect of a jet lag, the video is … Continue reading

## More notions of forcing add a Souslin tree

Joint work with Ari Meir Brodsky. Abstract. An $\aleph_1$-Souslin tree is a complicated combinatorial object whose existence cannot be decided on the grounds of ZFC alone. But 15 years after Tennenbaum and independently Jech devised notions of forcing for introducing … Continue reading

## Prikry forcing may add a Souslin tree

A celebrated theorem of Shelah states that adding a Cohen real introduces a Souslin tree. Are there any other examples of notions of forcing that add a $\kappa$-Souslin tree? and why is this of interest? My motivation comes from a … 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

## Prolific Souslin trees

In a paper from 1971, Erdos and Hajnal asked whether (assuming CH) every coloring witnessing $\aleph_1\nrightarrow[\aleph_1]^2_3$ has a rainbow triangle. The negative solution was given in a 1975 paper by Shelah, and the proof and relevant definitions may be found … 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

## P.O.I. Workshop in pure and descriptive set theory, September 2015

I gave an invited talk at the P.O.I Workshop in pure and descriptive set theory, Torino, September 26, 2015. Title: $\aleph_3$-trees. Abstract: We inspect the constructions of four quite different $\aleph_3$-Souslin trees.
