Abstract:

The Kalikow problem for a pair (\lambda,\kappa) of cardinal numbers, \lambda >\kappa (in particular \kappa=2) is whether we can map the family of \omega–sequences from \lambda to the family of \omega–sequences from \kappa in a very continuous manner. Namely, we demand that for \eta,\nu\in\lambda^\omega we have:\eta,\nu are almost equal if and only if their images are.

We show consistency of the negative answer e.g. for \aleph_\omega but we prove it for smaller cardinals. We indicate a close connection with the free subset property and its variants.
