Monroe Eskew: Rigid ideals

Talk held by Monroe Eskew (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-10-18. Abstract: Using ideas from Foreman-Magidor-Shelah, one can force from a Woodin cardinal to show it is consistent that the nonstationary ideal on $\omega_1$ is saturated while the quotient boolean algebra is rigid. continue reading…

Monroe Eskew: Local saturation of the nonstationary ideals

Talk held by Monroe Eskew (KGRC) at the KGRC seminar on 2018-03-22. Abstract: It is consistent relative to a huge cardinal that for all successor cardinals $\kappa$, there is a stationary $S \subseteq \kappa$ such that the nonstationary ideal on $\kappa$ restricted to $S$ is $\kappa^+$-saturated. continue reading…
