Abstract:

We address a number of problems on Boolean Algebras. For example, we construct, in ZFC, for any BA B, and cardinal \kappa BAs B_1,B_2 extending B such that the depth of the free product of B_1,B_2 over B is strictly larger than the depths of B_1 and of B_2 than \kappa. We give a condition (for \lambda, \mu and \theta) which implies that for some BA A_\theta there are B_1=B^1_{\lambda,\mu,\theta} and B_2B^2_{\lambda,\mu,\theta} such that Depth(B_t)\leq\mu and Depth(B_1\oplus_{A_\theta} B_1) \geq \lambda. We then investigate for a fixed A, the existence of such B_1,B_2 giving sufficient and necessary conditions, involving consistency results. Further we prove that e.g. if B is a BA of cardinality \lambda, \lambda\ge\mu and \lambda,\mu are strong limit singular of the same cofinality, then B has a homomorphic image of cardinality \mu (and with \mu ultrafilters). Next we show that for a BA B, if d(B)^\kappa<|B| then ind(B)>\kappa or Depth(B)\geq\log(|B|). Finally we prove that if \square_\lambda holds and \lambda=\lambda^{\aleph_0} then for some BAs B_n, Depth(B_n)\leq\lambda but for any uniform ultrafilter D on \omega, \prod_{n<\omega} B_n/D has depth \ge\lambda^+. - Version 2000-11-14_10 (56p) published version (41p)
