Two cardinal invariants of the continuum (${\mathfrak d}<{\mathfrak a}$) and FS linearly ordered iterated forcing

Acta Math, 2004
We show that consistently, every MAD family has cardinality strictly bigger than the dominating number, that is a > d, thus solving one of the oldest problems on cardinal invariants of the continuum. The method is a contribution to the theory of iterated forcing for making the continuum large.
