Abstract:

For an infinite cardinal \mu, {\rm MAD}(\mu) denotes the set of all cardinalities of nontrivial maximal almost disjoint families over \mu. Erdős and Hechler proved the consistency of \mu\in {\rm MAD}(\mu) for a singular cardinal \mu and asked if it was ever possible for a singular \mu that \mu\notin {\rm MAD}(\mu), and also whether 2^{{\rm cf}\mu}<\mu\Longrightarrow\mu\in{\rm MAD} (\mu) for every singular cardinal \mu.We introduce a new method for controlling {\rm MAD}(\mu) for a singular \mu and, among other new results about the structure of {\rm MAD}(\mu) for singular \mu, settle both problems affirmatively.
