Abstract:

Let \chi be the minimum cardinal of a subset of 2^\omega that cannot be made convergent by multiplication with a single Toeplitz matrix. By an application of creature forcing we show that {\mathfrak s}<\chi is consistent. We thus answer a question by Vojtáš. We give two kinds of models for the strict inequality. The first is the combination of an \aleph_2-iteration of some proper forcing with adding \aleph_1 random reals. The second kind of models is got by adding \delta random reals to a model of {\rm MA}_{<\kappa} for some \delta\in [\aleph_1,\kappa). It was a conjecture of Blass that {\mathfrak s}=\aleph_1<\chi= \kappa holds in such a model. For the analysis of the second model we again use the creature forcing from the first model. - Version 2001-05-27_11 (9p) published version (10p)
