Monroe Eskew: Global Chang conjectures and generic supercompactness

Time: Mon, 03/09/2015 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location:  RH 440R Speaker: Monroe Eskew (Tsukuba University, Japan) Title: Global Chang conjectures and generic supercompactness Abstract: Starting from a 2-huge cardinal, we construct a model where for all pairs of regular cardinals kappa<lambda, (lambda^+,lambda) –> (kappa^+,kappa) and there is a lambda^+ saturated ideal on P_{kappa^+}(lambda). continue reading…

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Time: Mon, 01/27/2014 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH 440R Title: Clubs, diamonds, and saturated ideals Abstract: We will present two different ways to generically add a club subset of a successor cardinal, under some GCH. continue reading…

Monroe Eskew: Separating strong saturation properties of ideals on small cardinals IV

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Institution: UCI Time: Mon, 10/21/2013 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH440R We will finish the proof that under GCH, dense ideals cannot exist at successors of singular cardinals. continue reading…

Speaker: Monroe Eskew Institution: UCI Time: Mon, 10/14/2013 – 4:00pm – 5:30pm Location: RH 440R This is a continuation of the previous two talks, where we used large cardinals to get a normal, lambda-dense ideal on [lambda]^omega_1 that coincide at omega_1. continue reading…
