Abstract:

Let \omega be the first infinite ordinal (or the set of all natural numbers) with the usual order <. In §1 we show that, assuming the consistency of a supercompact cardinal, there may exist an ultrapower of \omega, whose cardinality is (1) a singular strong limit cardinal, (2) a strongly inaccessible cardinal. This answers two questions in [CK], modulo the assumption of supercompactness. In §2 we construct several \lambda-Archimedean ultrapowers of \omega under some large cardinal assumptions. For example, we show that, assuming the consistency of a measurable cardinal, there may exist a \lambda-Archimedean ultrapower of \omega for some uncountable cardinal \lambda. This answers a question in [KS], modulo the assumption of measurability. - published version (17p)
