Abstract:

The study of the global structure of ultrafilters on the natural numbers with respect to the quasi-orders of Rudin-Keisler and Rudin-Blass reducibility was initiated in the 1970s by Blass, Keisler, Kunen, and Rudin. In a 1973 paper Blass studied the special class of P-points under the quasi-ordering of Rudin-Keisler reducibility. He asked what partially ordered sets can be embedded into the P-points when the P-points are equipped with this ordering. This question is of most interest under some hypothesis that guarantees the existence of many P-points, such as Martin’s axiom for \sigma-centered posets. In his 1973 paper he showed under this assumption that both {\omega}_{1} and the reals can be embedded. This result was later repeated for the coarser notion of Tukey reducibility. We prove in this paper that Martin’s axiom for \sigma-centered posets implies that every partial order of size at most continuum can be embedded into the P-points both under Rudin-Keisler and Tukey reducibility. - published version (23p)
