Abstract:

We show that if the existence of a supercompact cardinal is consistent with ZFC, then it is consistent with ZFC that the p-rank of {\rm Ext}_{\mathbb Z}(G,\mathbb Z) is as large as possible for every prime p and any torsion-free abelian group G. Moreover, given an uncountable strong limit cardinal \mu of countable cofinality and a partition of \Pi (the set of primes) into two disjoint subsets \Pi_0 and \Pi_1, we show that in some model which is very close to ZFC there is an almost-free abelian group G of size 2^{\mu}=\mu^+ such that the p-rank of {\rm Ext}_{\mathbb Z}(G,{\mathbb Z}) equals 2^{\mu}=\mu^+ for every p\in\Pi_0 and 0 otherwise, i.e. for p\in\Pi_1. - published version (16p)
