Abstract:

We begin with the existence of groups with trivial duals for cardinals \aleph_n (n\in \omega). Then we derive results about strongly \aleph_n-free abelian groups of cardinality \aleph_n (n\in\omega) with prescribed free, countable endomorphism ring. Finally we use combinatorial results of [Sh:108], [Sh:141] to give similar answers for cardinals >\aleph_\omega. As in Magidor and Shelah [MgSh:204], a paper concerned with the existence of \kappa-free, non-free abelian groups of cardinality \kappa, the induction argument breaks down at \aleph_\omega. Recall that \aleph_\omega is the first singular cardinal and such groups of cardinality \aleph_\omega do not exist by the well-known Singular Compactness Theorem (see [Sh:52]). - No downloadable versions available.
