predicates only. Not including < and $E$. First we choose a function
$F$ from $Q$ the rationals onto $M$ such that the pre-image of any
element is dense Second we define a model $N$ Universe. The rationals
<. Is interpreted. As the rational order $E$ is interpreted as
the equivalence relation $xEy iff F(x)=F(y)$ For any predicate $P$ of
the vocabulary of $M$ is interpreted as it's pre-image by $F$ No
$Th(N)$ is a countable fo theory with the same number of
countable models up to isomorphism as $Th(M)$ So we are done giving a
negative answer to the question},

generalized quantifier ranging on a family of relations of fixed arity
on a fixed set U. We consider two notions of order (and equivalence) by
interpretability. In essence, every such family is equivalent to one
consisting of equivalence relations but we have to add a well ordering
of length $\lambda$. In the weaker equivalence, there is a gap in
cardinality between the size of equivalence relations which can be
interpreted and the one needed to interpret, which consistently may
occurs. Of course, the problem of classifying families of equivalence
relations is clear. The proof proceed by cases, summed up in section 7,
where we concentrate on the less fine equivalence relation. [Note

Explanation of the from of the paper:\\ The original aim of this
article was to prove that for every $K$ (a family of relations on U on
a fixed arity) its quantifier is equivalent to one for $KU$, a family
of equivalence relations (all such classes are assumed to be closed
under isomorphism). Sections 1-6 were written for this and realize it
to large extent. Clearly it suffice to deal with $I$ with one
isomorphism type as long as the interpretations are uniform. But two
essential difficulties arise (1) the
quantifier $\exists^{word}_{\lambda}$ (a well ordering of length
$\lambda$), provably is not biinterpretable with $\exists_K$ for any
family $K$ of equivalence classes. This is not so serious: just
add another case. (2) It is consistent that there are
cardinals $\chi,\lambda$ satisfying $\chi\le\lambda \le 2^\chi $ such
that $R$ is e.g. a family of $\chi$ sunsets of $\lambda$, again
we cannot reduce this to equivalence relations in general (see section
8)\\ Only under the assumptions $V=L$ and considering more liberal
notion of bi-interpretability ($\equiv_{exp}$ rather than
$\equiv_{int}$ the desired result is gotten. However when the gap
degenerates for any reason we get the original hope (note
$\exists^{word}_\omega$ is second order quantification).},

title = {{Existence of endo-rigid Boolean Algebras}},
volume = {1182},
year = {1986},
abstract = {In [Sh:89] we, answering a question of Monk, have explicated
the notion of ``a Boolean algebra with no endomorphisms except the
ones induced by ultrafilters on it'' (see \S 2 here) and proved
the existence of one with character density $\aleph_0$, assuming
first $\diamondsuit_{\aleph_1}$ and then only $CH$. The idea was that
if $h$ is an endomorphism of $B$, not among the ``trivial'' ones,
then there are pairwise disjoint $D_n\in B$ with
$h(d_n)\not\subset d_n$. Then we can, for some $S\subset\omega$, add an
element $x$ such that $d\leq x$ for $n\in S$, $x\cap d_n=0$ for
$n\not\in S$ while forbidding a solution for $\{y\cap h(d_n):n\in
S\}\cup\{y\cap h(d_n)=0:n\not\in S\}$. Further analysis showed that the
point is that we are omitting positive quantifier free types.
Continuing this Monk succeeded to prove in ZFC, the existence of such
Boolean algebras of cardinality $2^{\aleph_0}$. \endgraf We prove (in
ZFC) the existence of such $B$ of density character $\lambda$ and
cardinality $\lambda^{\aleph_0}$ whenever $\lambda>\aleph_0$. We can
conclude answers to some questions from Monk's list. We use a
combinatorial method from [Sh:45],[Sh:172], that is represented in
Section 1.},

The motivation was a conjecture of Galvin stating that $2^{\omega}\geq

suitable $h:\omega\to\omega$. In section 5 we disprove this and give
similar negative results. In section 3 we prove the consistency of the
conjecture replacing $\omega_2$ by $2^\omega$, which is quite large,
starting with an Erd\H os cardinal. In section 1 we present iteration
lemmas which are needed when we replace $\omega$ by a larger $\lambda$
and in section 4 we generalize a theorem of Halpern and Lauchli
replacing $\omega$ by a larger $\lambda$.},

\lq\lq mini-coding between $\kappa$ and $\kappa^{+\omega}$. This
allows us to prove that any subset of $\kappa^{+\omega}$ can be coded
into a subset, $W$ of $\kappa^+$ which, further, \lq\lq reshapes the
interval $[\kappa,\ \kappa^+)$, i.e., for all $\kappa < \delta
< \kappa^+, \ \kappa = (card\ \delta)^{L[W \cap \delta]}$. We sketch
two applications of this result, assuming $0^\sharp$ does not exist.
First, we point out that this shows that any set can be coded by a
real, via a set forcing. The second application involves a notion of
abstract condensation, due to Woodin. Our methods can be used to show
that for any cardinal $\mu$, condensation for $\mu$ holds in a
generic extension by a set forcing.},

some stability theory built in. For this we deal with the existence of
indiscernible sets and (introduce and prove existence) of convergence
sets. Moreover, improve the results on the existence of indiscernible
sets such that for some first order theories, we get strong existence
results for set of elements, whereas possibly for some sets of
$n$-tuples this fails. In later sub-chapters we continue going up in
a spiral - getting either non-structure or showing closed affinity to
stable, but the dividing lines are in general missing for first order
classes.},

says that there is a transitive model of Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory
with choice (ZFC) in which every fully definable construction is
`weakly natural' (a weakening of the notion of a natural
transformation). A corollary is that there are models of ZFC in which
some well-known constructions, such as algebraic closure of fields, are
not explicitly definable. We also show that there is no model of ZFC
in which the explicitly definable constructions are precisely
the natural ones.},

the $L$-structure formed as the substructure of $M$ with domain

theory in $L$ with infinite models. Following Hodges, we say that T
is relatively $\lambda$-categorical if whenever $M$, $N\models T$,
$P(M)=P(N)$, $|P(M)|=\lambda$ then there is an
isomorphism $i:M\rightarrow N$ which is the identity on $P(M)$. $T$
is relatively categorical if it is relatively $\lambda$-categorical
for every $\lambda$. The question arises whether the
relative $\lambda$-categoricity of $T$ for some $\lambda>|T|$ implies
that $T$ is relatively categorical. \endgraf In this paper, we provide
an example, for every $k>0$, of a theory $T_k$ and an
$L_{\omega_1\omega}$ sentence $\varphi_k$ so that $T_k$ is relatively
$\aleph_n$-categorical for $n < k$ and $\varphi_k$
is $\aleph_n$-categorical for $n0$. The reason for this being true in ZFC (rather
than under some special set theoretic hypotheses) is that these
varieties satisfy stronger versions of the construction principle.
We conjecture that the hierarchy of construction principles is strict,
i.e., that for each $n>0$ there is a variety which satisfies
the $n$-construction principle but not the
$n+1$-construction principle. In this paper we will show that the
$1$-construction principle does not imply the $2$-construction
principle. We prove that, assuming the consistency of some large
cardinal hypothesis, it is consistent that a variety has an essentially
non-free almost free algebra of cardinality $\aleph_n$ if and only if
it satisfies the $n$-construction principle.},

Next, we attempt to get compactness results for some other logics
without recourse to $\diamondsuit$, i.e., all our results are in ZFC.
We get the full result for the language where we quantify over
automorphisms (isomorphisms) of ordered fields in Theorem
6.4. Unfortunately we are not able to show that the language
with quantification over automorphisms of Boolean algebras is compact,
but will have to settle for a close relative of that logic. This
is theorem 5.1. In section 4 we prove we can construct models in
which all relevant automorphism are somewhat definable: 4.1, 4.8 for
BA, 4.13 for ordered fields. We also give a new proof of
the compactness of another logic -- the one which is obtained when
a quantifier $Q_{{\rm Brch}}$ is added to first order logic which
says that a level tree (definitions will be given later) has an
infinite branch. This logic was previously shown to be compact, but our
proof yields a somewhat stronger result and provides a nice
illustration of one of our methods.},

with $c<1$ the random $G$ consists of small components, the largest
of size $\Theta(\log n)$. But by $p=c/n$ with $c>1$ many of
the components have ``congealed'' into a ``giant component'' of
size $\Theta (n)$. Erdos and Renyi called this the {\em double jump},
the terms phase transition (from the analogy to percolation) and
Big Bang have also been proferred. Now imagine an observer who can
only see $G$ through a logical fog. He may refer to graph
theoretic properties $A$ within a limited logical language. Will he be
able to detect the double jump? The answer depends on the strength of
the language. Our rough answer to this rough question is: the
double jump is not detectible in the First Order Theory of Graphs but
it is detectible in the Second Order Monadic Theory of Graphs. },

an abstract notion of submodel $\leq$. Experience in first order
model theory has shown the desirability of finding a `monster model'
to serve as a universal domain for {\bf K}. In the
original constructions of Jonsson and Fraisse, {\bf K} was a universal
class and ordinary substructure played the role of $\leq$. Working with
a cardinal $\lambda$ satisfying $\lambda^{<\lambda}=\lambda$ guarantees
appropriate downward Lowenheim-Skolem theorems; the existence and
uniqueness of a homogeneous-universal model appears to depend centrally
on the amalgamation property. We make this apparent dependence more
precise in this paper. The major innovation of this paper is the
introduction of weaker notion to replace the natural notion of $({\bf
K},\leq)$-homogeneous-universal model. Modulo a weak extension of ZFC
(provable if V=L), we show that a class {\bf K} obeying certain minimal
restrictions satisfies a fundamental dichotomy: For arbitrarily large
$\lambda$, either {\bf K} has the maximal number of models in power
$\lambda$ or {\bf K} has a unique chain homogenous-universal model of
power $\lambda$. We show that in a class with amalgamation this
dichotomy holds for the notion of {\bf K}-homogeneous-universal model

in discussion, Harrington expressed a desire for a finer structure -
of finitary character (when we have a structure theorem at all).
I point out that the logic $L_{\infty,\aleph_0}(d.q.)$ (d.q. stands for
dimension quantifier) does not suffice: e.g., for $T=Th(\lambda\times
{}^\omega 2,E_n)_{n<\omega}$ where $(\alpha,\eta)E_n(\beta,\nu) =:
\eta|n=\nu|n$ and for $S\subseteq {}^\omega 2$ we define $M_S =
M|\{(\alpha,\eta):[\eta\in S\Rightarrow\alpha<\omega_1]$ and $[\eta\in
{}^\omega 2 \backslash S\Rightarrow\alpha<\omega]\}$. Hence, it seems
to me we should try $L_{\infty,\aleph_\epsilon}(d.q.)$ (essentially, in
${\frak C}$ we can quantify over sets which are included in the
algebraic closure of finite sets), and Harrington accepts this
interpretation. Here the conjecture is proved for
$\aleph_\epsilon$-saturated models. I.e., the main theorem is
$M\equiv_{{\mathcal L}_{\infty,\aleph_\epsilon}(d.q.)}N \Leftrightarrow
M \cong N$ for $\aleph_\epsilon$-saturated models of a superstable
countable (first order) theory $T$ without dop. },

and others investigated at length the properties and structure
of pointwise compact sets of measurable functions. A number
of problems, interesting in themselves and important for the theory
of Pettis integration, were solved subject to various special axioms.
It was left unclear just how far the special axioms were necessary. In
particular, several results depended on the fact that it is consistent
to suppose that every countable relatively pointwise compact set of
Lebesgue measurable functions is `stable' in Talagrand's sense; the
point being that stable sets are known to have a variety of properties
not shared by all pointwise compact sets. In the present paper we
present a model of set theory in which there is a countable relatively
pointwise compact set of Lebesgue measurable functions which is not
stable, and discuss the significance of this model in relation to the
original questions. A feature of our model which may be of independent
interest is the following: in it, there is a closed negligible set
$Q\subseteq [0,1]^2$ such that whenever $D\subseteq [0,1]$ has outer
measure 1 then the set $Q^{-1}[D]=\{x:(\exists y\in D)((x,y)\in Q)\}$
has inner measure 1.},

again in ZFC -- that for a large class of cardinals there is no
universal linear order (e.g. in every $\aleph_1< \lambda<

linear order at a regular $\lambda$ and its existence is not a result
of a trivial cardinal arithmetical reason, then $\lambda$ ``resembles''
$\aleph_1$ -- a cardinal for which the consistency of having a
universal order is known. As for singular cardinals, we show that for
many singular cardinals, if they are not strong limits then they have
no universal linear order. As a result of the non existence of
a universal linear order, we show the non-existence of universal models
for all theories possessing the strict order property (for example,
ordered fields and groups, Boolean algebras, p-adic rings and fields,
partial orders, models of PA and so on).},

a stationary subset of $\omega_1$ which satisfies
$2$-uniformization (respectively, $omega$-uniformization). These
techniques allowed also the proof of various independence and
consistency results about Whitehead groups, for example that it is
consistent that there is a non-free Whitehead group of cardinality
$\aleph_1$ but no non-free $\aleph_1$-coseparable group. However, some
natural questions remained open, among them the following two: (i) Is
it consistent that the class of W-groups of cardinality $\aleph_1$ is
exactly the class of strongly $\aleph_1$-free groups of cardinality
$\aleph_1$? (ii) If every strongly $\aleph_1$-free group of
cardinality $\aleph_1$ is a W-group, are they also all
$\aleph_1$-coseparable? In this paper we use the techniques of

property or the omitting types order property. Shelah [Sh:c] showed
that if a theory $T$ is classifiable then each model of cardinality

this sentence can be chosen in the $L^*_{\lambda}$. ($L^*_{\lambda}$
is the result of enriching the language $L_{\infty,\beth^+}$ by
adding for each $\mu<\lambda$ a quantifier saying the dimension of

such sentences will be preserved by any forcing that does not
collapse cardinals $\leq\lambda$ and that adds no new countable subsets

family of ``nice forcing'' like Borel. We shall interpret ``nice''
as Souslin as suggested by Judah Shelah [JdSh 292]. We divide
the family of Souslin forcing to two, and expect that: among the
first part, i.e. those adding some non-dominated real, Cohen is
minimal (=is below every one), while among the rest random is
quite characteristic even unique. Concerning the second class we
have weak results, concerning the first class, our results
look satisfactory. We have two main results: one (1.14) says that
Cohen forcing is ``minimal'' in the first class, the other (1.10)
says that all c.c.c. Souslin forcing have a property shared by
Cohen forcing and Random real forcing, so it gives a weak answer to
the problem on how special is random forcing, but says much on
all c.c.c. Souslin forcing. },

of reals are partitioned into finitely many Borel classes then there
is a perfect set $P$ such that all pairs from $P$ lie in the

Let us identify the reals with $2^\omega$ ordered by the
lexicographical ordering and define for distinct $x,y\in 2^\omega$,
$D(x,y)$ to be the least $n$ such that $x(n)\neq y(n)$. Let the type of
an increasing $n$-tuple $\{x_0,\ldots x_{n-1}\}_<$ be the
ordering $<^*$ on $\{0,\ldots,n-2\}$ defined by $i<^*j$ iff
$D(x_i,x_{i+1})< D(x_j,x_{j+1})$. Galvin proved that for any Borel
coloring of triples of reals there is a perfect set $P$ such that the
color of any triple from $P$ depends only on its type. Blass proved
an analogous result is true for any $n$. As a corollary it follows
that if the unordered $n$-tuples of reals are colored into finitely
many Borel classes there is a perfect set $P$ such that the
$n$-tuples from $P$ meet at most $(n-1)!$ classes. We consider
extensions of this result to partitions of infinite increasing
sequences of reals. We show, that for any Borel or even analytic
partition of all increasing sequences of reals there is a perfect set

In the second section we introduce properties $SOP_n$ such that
the strict order property implies $SOP_{n+1}$, which implies $SOP_n$,

forcing notions which measure in a sense the distance between the
ground model reals and the reals in the extension. We look at the ways
the ``new'' reals can be aproximated by ``old'' reals. We
consider localizations for infinite subsets of $\omega$. Though each
member of $[\omega]^\omega$ can be identified with its
increasing enumeration, the (standard) localizations of the enumeration
does not provide satisfactory information on successive points of
the set. They give us ``candidates'' for the $n$-th point of the set
but the same candidates can appear several times for distinct $n$.
That led to a suggestion that we should consider disjoint subsets
of $\omega$ as sets of ``candidates'' for successive points of
the localized set. We have two possibilities. Either we can demand
that each set from the localization contains a limited number of
members of the localized set or we can postulate that each intersection
of that kind is large. Localizations of this kind are studied
in section 1. In the second section we investigate localizations
of infinite subsets of $\omega$ by sets of integers from the
ground model. These localizations might be thought as localizations
by partitions of $\omega$ into successive intervals.},

and (D). Condition (B) states that there is a disjoint
family $F\subseteq P(X)$ of size ${\bf c}$, consisting of Borel sets
which are not in $I$. Condition (M) states that there is a
function $f:X\rightarrow X$ with $f^{-1}[\{x\}]\notin I$ for each $x\in
X$. Provided that $X$ is a group and $I$ is invariant, condition
(D) states that there exist a Borel set $B\notin I$ and a perfect
set $P\subseteq X$ for which the family $\{ B+x: x\in P\} $
is disjoint. The aim of the paper is to study whether the
reverse implications in the chain $(D)\Rightarrow

A modified version of that $\sigma$-ideal contains the whole space

``nicely'' defined ideals are established (Section 4). We show that
both ccc and (M) can fail (Theorems 1.3 and 4.2). Finally, some
sharp versions of (M) for invariant ideals on Polish groups
are investigated (Section 5).},

PTime properties? This question can be recast as follows: Does there
exist a logic that captures polynomial time (without presuming the
presence of a linear order)? Earlier, one of us conjectured the
negative answer. The problem motivated a quest for stronger and
stronger PTime logics. All these logics avoid arbitrary choice. Here we
attempt to capture the choiceless fragment of PTime. Our computation
model is a version of abstract state machines (formerly called
evolving algebras). The idea is to replace arbitrary choice with
parallel execution. The resulting logic is more expressive than other
PTime logics in the literature. A more difficult theorem shows that
the logic does not capture all PTime.},

the same notions, and use just one simple lemma from there.
Originally entangledness was introduced in order to get narrow Boolean
algebras and examples of the nonmultiplicativity of c.c-ness.
These applications became marginal when the hope to extract new
such objects or strong colourings were not materialized, but after
the pcf constructions which made their debut in [Sh:g] it seems
that this notion gained independence. Generally we aim at
characterizing the existence strong and weak entangled orders in
cardinal arithmetic terms. In [Sh462] necessary conditions were shown
for strong entangledness which in a previous version was
erroneously proved to be equivalent to plain entangledness. In section
1 we give a forcing counterexample to this equivalence and in section 2
we get those results for entangledness (certainly the most
interesting case). In \S3 we get weaker results for positively
entangledness, especially when supplemented with the existence of a
separating point. An antipodal case is defined and completely
characterized. Lastly we outline a forcing example showing that these
two subcases of positive entangledness comprise no dichotomy.},

indecomposable `almost free' module. The existence of such modules was
unknown for rings with only finitely many primes like $R={\mathbb

to irredundance and spread of Boolean algebras, gaining both some ZFC
knowledge and consistency results. We show in ZFC that $irr(B_0\times
B_1)=\max\{irr(B_0),irr(B_1)\}$. We prove consistency of the statement
``there is a Boolean algebra $B$ such that $irr(B)< s(B\otimes B)$''
and we force a superatomic Boolean algebra $B_*$ such
that $s(B_*)=inc(B_*)=\kappa$, $irr(B_*)=Id(B_*)=\kappa^+$
and $Sub(B_*)=2^{\kappa^+}$. Next we force a superatomic algebra $B_0$
such that $irr(B_0)< inc(B_0)$ and a superatomic algebra $B_1$ such
that $t(B_1)> {\rm Aut}(B_1)$. Finally we show that consistently there
is a Boolean algebra $B$ of size $\lambda$ such that there is no free
sequence in $B$ of length $\lambda$, there is an ultrafilter of
tightness $\lambda$ (so $t(B)=\lambda$) and $\lambda\notin{\rm
Depth}_{\rm Hs}(B)$.},

abstract = {A study is carried out of the elementary theory of quotients
of symmetric groups in a similar spirit to [Sh:24]. Apart from
the trivial and alternating subgroups, the normal subgroups of the
full symmetric group $S(\mu)$ on an infinite cardinal $\mu$ are all
of the form $S_\kappa(\mu)=$ the subgroup consisting of elements
whose support has cardinality $<\kappa$ for some $\kappa\le\mu^+$.
A many-sorted structure ${\mathcal M}_{\kappa\lambda\mu}$ is
defined which, it is shown, encapsulates the first order properties of
the group $S_\lambda(\mu)/S_\kappa(\mu)$. Specifically, these
two structures are (uniformly) bi-interpretable, where
the interpretation of ${\mathcal M}_{\kappa\lambda\mu}$
in $S_\lambda(\mu)/S_\kappa(\mu)$ is in the usual sense, but in
the other direction is in a weaker sense, which is
nevertheless sufficient to transfer elementary equivalence. By
considering separately the cases $cf(\kappa) > 2^{\aleph_0},
cf(\kappa)\le 2^{\aleph_0}<\kappa, \aleph_0<\kappa< 2^{\aleph_0}$,
and $\kappa = \aleph_0$, we make a further analysis of the first

materializing this intuition: nep (non-elementary properness) and snep
(Souslin non-elementary properness). For this we consider candidates
(countable models to which the definition applies), and the older
Souslin proper. A major theme here is ``preservation by iteration'',
but we also show a dichotomy: if such forcing notions preserve
the positiveness of the set of old reals for some naturally define
c.c.c.\ ideals, then they preserve the positiveness of any old
positive set. We also prove that (among such forcing notions) the only
one commuting with Cohen is Cohen itself.},

$B_1=B^1_{\lambda,\mu,\theta}$ and $B_2B^2_{\lambda,\mu,\theta}$ such
that Depth$(B_t)\leq\mu$ and Depth$(B_1\oplus_{A_\theta} B_1) \geq

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

an isomorphism of rings. In this case $R_{\mathbb Z}$ is called
an $E$-group. Obvious examples of $E$-rings are subrings of ${\mathbb
Q}$. However there is a proper class of examples constructed recently.
$E$-rings come up naturally in various topics of algebra. This also led
to a generalization: an abelian group $G$ is an ${\mathbb E}$-group if
there is an epimorphism from $G$ onto the additive group of $End(G)$.
If $G$ is torsion-free of finite rank, then $G$ is an $E$-group if and
only if it is an ${\mathbb E}$-group. The obvious question was raised a
few years ago which we will answer by showing that the two notions do
not coincide. We will apply combinatorial machinery to non-commutative
rings to produce an abelian group $G$ with (non-commutative) $End(G)$
and the desired epimorphism with prescribed kernel $H$. Hence, if we
let $H=0$, we obtain a non-commutative ring $R$ such that

answered an open problem by constructing a large class of splitters.
Classical splitters are free modules and torsion-free, algebraically
compact ones. In [GbSh:647] we concentrated on splitters which are
larger then the continuum and such that countable submodules are
not necessarily free. The `opposite' case of $\aleph_1$-free
splitters of cardinality less or equal to $\aleph_1$ was singled out
because of basically different techniques. This is the target of the
present paper. If the splitter is countable, then it must be free over
some subring of the rationals by a result of Hausen. We can show that
all $\aleph_1$-free splitters of cardinality $\aleph_1$ are
free indeed.},

an $R$-module $G$ is reflexive if the evaluation

strengthens our algebraic results in [GbSh:568]. Moreover we want to
apply a model theoretic combinatorial theorem from [Sh:e] which allows
us to avoid the weak diamond principle. This has the great advantage

OCA. We prove that moreover, consistently there is no ccc forcing with
the Laver property. Note that if cov(meagre)=continuum (which
follows e.g. from PFA) then there is a (non principal) Ramsey
ultrafilter on $\omega$ hence a forcing notion with the Laver property.
So the results are incomparable.},

hypothesis (CH). The objects are reflexive modules over countable
principal ideal domains $R$, which are not fields. Following H. Bass,
an $R$-module $G$ is reflexive if the evaluation map
$\sigma: G\longrightarrow G^{**}$ is an isomorphism. Here $G^*={\rm
Hom}(G, R)$ denotes the dual module of $G$. We proved the existence
of reflexive $R$-modules $G$ of infinite rank with $G \not\cong
G \oplus R$, which provide (even essentially indecomposable)
counter examples to the question mentioned above. Is CH a
necessary condition to find `nasty' reflexive modules? In the last part
of this paper we will show (assuming the existence of
supercompact cardinals) that large reflexive modules always have
large summands. So at least being essentially indecomposable needs
an additional set theoretic assumption. However the assumption need
not be CH as shown in the first part of this paper. We will use
Martin's axiom to find reflexive modules with the above decomposition

extra properties can be added to $G$. We can consider groups $G$ with
the following properties: There is a complete group $L$ with cartesian

{\it localization} of $A$ if every homomorphism $\varphi:A\to H$ can
be `extended uniquely' to a homomorphism $\Phi:H\to H$ in the
sense that $\Phi\eta=\varphi$. This categorical concepts, obviously
not depending on the notion of groups, extends classical
localizations as known for rings and modules. Moreover this setting
has interesting applications in homotopy theory. For
localizations $\eta:A\to H$ of (almost) commutative structures $A$
often $H$ resembles properties of $A$, e.g. size or satisfying certain
systems of equalities and non-equalities. Perhaps the best known
example is that localizations of finite abelian groups are finite
abelian groups. This is no longer the case if $A$ is a finite
(non-abelian) group. Libman showed that $A_n\to SO_{n-1}({\mathbb R})$
for a natural embedding of the alternating group $A_n$ is a
localization if $n$ even and $n\geq 10$. Answering an immediate
question by Dror Farjoun and assuming the generalized continuum
hypothesis GCH we recently showed in [GRSh:701] that any non-abelian
finite simple has arbitrarily large localizations. In this paper we
want to remove GCH so that the result becomes valid in ordinary set
theory. At the same time we want to generalize the statement for a

the existence of a complete matching in a bipartite graph. We
revisit the known examples that separate polynomial time from fixpoint

F{\"{u}}rer, and Immerman, when suitably padded, are in choiceless
polynomial time yet not in fixpoint plus counting. Without padding,
they remain in polynomial time but appear not to be in
choiceless polynomial time plus counting. Similar results hold for
the multipede examples of Gurevich and Shelah, except that their
final version of multipedes is, in a sense, already suitably
padded. Finally, we describe another plausible candidate,
involving determinants, for the task of separating polynomial time

is defined as follows: There are two players called $\forall$
and $\exists$. First $\forall$ plays $x_0$ and then $\exists$
plays $y_0$. After this $\forall$ plays $x_1$, and $\exists$ plays
$y_1$, and so on. Eventually a sequence

$\exists$ has to play his $y_\beta$ in $B$ ($A$). Thus the sequence

various parts of group theory. For example, Mycielski has extended
a classical result of Lie groups and shown that a maximal

finite symmetric groups the question of the size of maximal
Abelian subgroups has been examined by Burns and Goldsmith in 1989

in generalizing this study to infinite symmetric groups;
the cardinality of any maximal Abelian subgroup of the symmetric
group of the integers is $2^{\aleph_0}$. Our purpose is also to
examine the size of maximal Abelian subgroups for a class of groups
closely related to the the symmetric group of the integers; these arise
by taking an ideal on the integers, considering the subgroup of
all permutations which respect the ideal and then taking the quotient
by the normal subgroup of permutations which fix all integers except
a set in the ideal. We prove that the maximal size of Abelian subgroups
in such groups is sensitive to the nature of the ideal as well as

in \cite{Sh:h} as the (bare bones) right parallel among a.e.c. to
superstable (among elementary classes). Here we consider
$(\mu,\lambda,\kappa)$-frames as candidates for being the right
parallel to the class of $|T|^+$-saturated models of a stable theory
(among elementary classes). A loss as compared to the superstable
case is that going up by induction on cardinals is problematic (for
cardinals of small cofinality). But this arises only when we try to
lift. But this context we investigate the dimension. \endgraf Part
III: In the context of Part II, we consider the main gap problem for
the parallel of somewhat saturated model; showing we are not worse than

In this case ${}_R A$ is called an $E(R)$--module. $E(R)$-algebras come
up naturally in various topics of algebra, so it's not surprising
that they were investigated thoroughly in the last decade. Despite
some efforts it remained an open question whether proper
generalized $E(R)$-algebras exist. These are $R$--algebras $A$
isomorphic to $End_R A$ but not under the above canonical isomorphism,
so not $E(R)$--algebras. This question was raised about 30 years ago

complete discrete valuation rings - we will establish the existence

$E(R)$-algebras over rings $R$ that are complete discrete valuation

abstract = {The stability theory of first order theories was initiated
by Saharon Shelah in 1969. The classification of abstract
elementary classes was initiated by Shelah, too. In several papers, he
introduced non-forming relations. Later, Shelah (2009) [17,
11] introduced the good non-forking frame, an axiomatization of the
non-forking notion. We improve results of Shelah on good non-forming
grames, mainly by weakening the stability hypothesis in several
important theorems, replacing it by the almost $\lambda$-stability
hypothesis: The number of types over a model of cardinality $\lambda$
is at most $\lambda^+$. We present conditions on $K_\lambda$, that
imply the existence of a model in $K_{\lambda^{+n}}$ for all $n$. We
do this by providing sufficiently strong conditions on $K_\lambda$,
that they are inherited by a properly chosen subclass of
$K_{\lambda^+}$. What are these conditions? We assume that there is a
`non-forking' relation which satisfies the properties of the
non-forking relation on superstable first order theories. Note that
here we deal with models of fixed cardinality $\lambda$. While in
Shelah (2009) [17,II] we assume stability in $\lambda$, so we can use
brimmed (=limit) models, here we assume almost stability only, but we
add an assumption: The conjugation property. In the context of
elementary classes, the superstability assumption gives the existence
of types with well-defined dimension and the $\omega$-stability
assumption gives the existence and uniqueness of models prime over
sets. In our context, the local character assumption is an
analog to superstability and the density of the class of uniqueness
triples with respect to the relation $ \preccurlyeq $ is the analog to
$omega$-stability.},

Saharon Shelah ich has such limit models? We find one: the theory
$T_{\rm ord}$ of dense linear orders. So does this hold for all
unstable $T$? As $T_{\rm ord}$ is prototypical of dependent theories,
it is natural to look for independent theories. A strong, explicit
version of $T$ being independent is having the strong independence
property. We prove that for such $T$ there are no limit models. We
work harder to prove this for every dependent $T$, i.e., with the
independence property though a weaker version. This makes us conjecture
that any dependent $T$ has such models. Toward this end we continue the

endomorphism ring $R$ which remains the same when passing to a generic
extension of the universe. It turns out that `large' in this context
has the {\em precise meaning,} namely being smaller then the first
$\omega$-Erdos cardinal defined below. We will first apply result on
large rigid trees with a similar property established by Shelah in
1982, and will prove the existence of related `$R_\omega$-modules'
($R$-modules with countably many distinguished submodules) and finally
pass to $R$-modules. The passage through $R_\omega$-modules has the
great advantage that the proofs become very transparent essentially

natural structures on the set of regular types mod $\pm$ in $M$.

year = {2011},
abstract = { A ring $R$ with $1$ is called an {\em $E$-ring}
if $End_{\mathbb Z} R$ is ring-isomorphic to $R$ under the
canonical homomorphism taking the value $1 \sigma$ for any $\sigma
\in End_{\mathbb Z} R$. Moreover $R$ is an {\em absolute $E$-ring} if
it remains an $E$-ring in every generic extension of the universe.
$E$-rings are an important tool for algebraic topology as explained in
the introduction. The existence of an $E$-ring $R$ of each cardinality
of the form $\lambda^{\aleph_0}$ was shown by Dugas, Mader and
Vinsonhaler [DMV]. We want to show the existence of absolute $E$-rings.
It turns out that there is a precise cardinal-barrier $\kappa(\omega)$
for this problem: (The cardinal $\kappa(\omega)$ is the first
$\omega$-Erd\H{o}s cardinal defined in the introduction. It is a
relative of measurable cardinals.) We will construct absolute $E$-rings
of any size $\lambda <\kappa(\omega)$. But there are no absolute
$E$-rings of cardinality $\ge\kappa(\omega)$. The non-existence of
huge, absolute $E$-rings $\ge \kappa(\omega)$ follows from a recent
paper by Herden and Shelah \cite{HS} and the construction of absolute
$E$-rings $R$ is based on an old result by Shelah \cite{S} where
families of absolute, rigid colored trees (with no automorphism between
any distinct members) are constructed. We plant these trees into our
potential $E$-rings with the aim to prevent unwanted endomorphisms of
their additive group to survive. Endomorphisms will recognize the
trees which will have branches infinitely often divisible by primes.
Our main result provides the existence of absolute $E$-rings for
all infinite cardinals $\lambda <\kappa(\omega)$, i.e. these
$E$-rings remain $E$-rings in all generic extensions of the universe
(e.g. using forcing arguments). Indeed {\em all} previously known
$E$-rings ([DMV,GT]) of cardinality $\ge 2^{\aleph_0}$ have a free
additive group $R^+$ in some extended universe, thus are no longer
$E$-rings, as explained in the introduction. Our construction also
fills all cardinal-gaps of the earlier constructions (which have only
sizes $\lambda^{\aleph_0}$). These $E$-rings are domains and as a
by-product we obtain the existence of absolutely indecomposable abelian
groups, compare [GS2].},

abstract = {We investigate the class of models of a general
dependent theory. We continue \cite{Sh:900} in particular
investigating so called ``decomposition of types''; thesis is
that what holds for stable theory and for Th$(\mathbb Q,<)$ hold for
dependent theories. Another way to say this is: we have to look at
small enough neighborhood and use reasonably definable types to analyze
a type. We note the results understable without reading. First, a
parallel to the ``stability spectrum'', the ``recounting of types'',
that is assume $\lambda = \lambda^{< \lambda}$ is large enough, $M$ a
saturated model of $T$ of cardinality $\lambda$, let $\bold
S_{\text{aut}}(M)$ be the number of complete types over $M$ up to being
conjugate, i.e. we identify $p,q$ when some automorphism of $M$ maps
$p$ to $q$. Whereas for independent $T$ the number is $2^\lambda$, for
dependent $T$ the number is $\le \lambda$ moreover it is
$\le |\alpha|^{|T|}$ when $\lambda = \aleph_\alpha$. Second, for stable
theories ``lots of indiscernibility exists'' a ``too good indiscernible
existence theorem'' saying, e.g. that if the
type tp$(d_\beta;\{d_\beta:\beta < \alpha\})$ is increasing for $\alpha
< \kappa = \text{ cf}(\kappa)$ and $\kappa > 2^{|T|}$ {then}
$\langle d_\alpha:\alpha \in S\rangle$ is indiscernible for some
stationary $S \subseteq \kappa$. Third, for stable $T$,a model
is $\kappa$-saturated iff it is $\aleph_\varepsilon$-saturated and
every infinite indiscernible set (of elements) of cardinality $<
\kappa$ can be increased. We prove here an analog. Fourth, for $p \in
\bold S(M)$, the number of ultrafilters on the outside definable
subsets of $M$ extending $p$ has an absolute bound $2^{|T|}$.
Restricting ourselves to one $\varphi(x,\bar y)$, the number is finite,
with an absolute found (well depending on $T$ and $\varphi$). Also if
$M$ is saturated then $p$ is the average of an indiscernible sequence
inside the model. Lastly, the so-called generic pair conjecture was
proved in \cite{Sh:900} for $\kappa$ measurable, here it is
essentially proved, i.e. for $\kappa > |T| + \beth_\omega$.},

Let $k_*$ and therefore $k_{**}$ (a constant $\leq 2^{k_*+2}$) be
given. Let $G$ be a graph with the non-$k_*$-order property. Then for
any $\epsilon>0$ there exists $m=m(\epsilon)$ such that if $G$ is
sufficiently large, there is a partition $\langle A_i : i* \aleph_0$ is measurable,
we construct a regular ultrafilter on $\lambda \geq 2^\kappa$ which
is flexible (thus: ok) but not good, and which moreover has
large ${\mathrm{lcf}} (\aleph_0)$ but does not even saturate models of
the random graph. This implies (a) that flexibility alone cannot
characterize saturation of any theory, however (b) by separating
flexibility from goodness, we remove a main obstacle to proving non-low
does not imply maximal, and (c) from a set-theoretic point of view,
consistently, ok need not imply good, answering a question from Dow
1985. Under no additional assumptions, we prove that there is a loss
of saturation in regular ultrapowers of unstable theories, and give a
new proof that there is a loss of saturation in ultrapowers of
non-simple theories. More precisely, for $\mathcal{D}$ regular on
$\kappa$ and $M$ a model of an unstable theory,
$M^\kappa/ \mathcal{D}$ is not $(2^\kappa)^+$-saturated; and for $M$ a
model of a non-simple theory and $\lambda = \lambda^{<\lambda}$,
$M^\lambda/\mathcal{D}$ is not $\lambda^{++}$-saturated. Finally, we
investigate realization and omission of symmetric cuts, significant
both because of the maximality of the strict order property in
Keisler's order, and by recent work of the authors on $SOP_2$. We prove
that if $\mathcal{D}$ is a $\kappa$- complete ultrafilter on $\kappa$,
any ultrapower of a sufficiently saturated model of linear order will
have no $(\kappa, \kappa)$-cuts, and that if $\mathcal{D}$ is also
normal, it will have a $(\kappa^+, \kappa^+)$-cut. We apply this
to prove that for any $n < \omega$, assuming the existence of
$n$ measurable cardinals below $\lambda$, there is a regular
ultrafilter $D$ on $\lambda$ such that any $D$-ultrapower of a
model of linear order will have $n$ alternations of cuts, as defined
below. Moreover, $D$ will $\lambda^+$-saturate all stable theories but
will not $(2^{\kappa})^+$-saturate any unstable theory, where $\kappa$
is the smallest measurable cardinal used in the construction.},

independent families of functions}},

abstract = {In this paper, the second of two, we continue
our investigations of model-theoretic properties of
ultrafilters: $\mu(\mathcal{D})$, the minimum size of a product of
an unbounded sequence of natural numbers modulo
$\mathcal{D}$; $\mathrm{lcf}(\aleph_0, \mathcal{D})$ the lower
cofinality (coinitiality) of $\aleph_0$ modulo
$\mathcal{D}$;flexibility, discussed extensively in the paper;
realization of symmetric cuts; and goodness. We work in ZFC except
where noted. Our main results are as follows. First, we prove that
any ultrafilter $\mathcal{D}$ which is $\lambda$-flexible (thus:
$\lambda^+$-o.k.) must have $\mu(\mathcal{D}) = 2^\lambda$. Thus, a
fortiori, $\mathcal{D}$ will saturate any stable theory. This is the
strongest possible statement about the saturation power of flexibility
alone, in light of our proof in the companion paper (I) that
consistently, flexibility does not imply saturation of the random
graph. In the remainder of the paper, we focus on the method of
constructing ultrafilters via families of independent functions. Our
second result is a constraint, that is, a tool for building
ultrafilters which are not flexible. Specifically, we prove that if,
at any point in a construction by independent functions the cardinality
of the range of the remaining independent family is strictly smaller
than the index set, then essentially no subsequent ultrafilter can be
flexible. This is a useful point of leverage since any ultrafilter
which is not flexible will fail to saturate any non-low theory. The
third and fourth results are ultrafilter constructions. Third, assuming
the existence of a measurable cardinal $\kappa$ (to obtain a
$\kappa$-complete ultrafilter), we prove that on any $\lambda \geq
\kappa^+$ there is a regular ultrafilter which is flexible but not
good. This gives a second proof, of independent interest, of a question
from Dow [1985], complementing the proof in the companion paper (I).
Fourth, assuming the existence of a weakly compact cardinal $\kappa$,
we prove that for $\aleph_0 < \theta = \textrm{cf}(\theta) <
\kappa \leq \lambda$ there is a regular ultrafilter $\mathcal{D}$ on
$\lambda$ such that $\mathrm{lcf}(\aleph_0, \mathcal{D}) = \theta$ but
$(\mathbb{N}, <)^\lambda/\mathcal{D}$ has no $(\kappa, \kappa)$-cuts.
This appears counter to model-theoretic intuition, since it shows some
families of cuts in linear order can be realized without saturating the
minimum unstable theory. We give several extensions of this last
result, and show how to eliminate the large cardinal hypothesis in the
case of asymmetric cuts.},

under the assumption that all symmetric pre-cuts of cofinality no more
than the size of the index set are realized. We prove that the only
possibility is $(\kappa, \kappa^+)$ where $\kappa$ is regular and
$\kappa^+$ is the cardinality of the index set $I$. This shows that
unless $|I|$ is the successor of a regular cardinal, any such
ultrafilter must be $|I|^+$-good. We then connect this work to the
problem of determining the boundary of the maximum class in Keisler's
order. Currently, $SOP_3$ is known to imply maximality. Here, we
show that the property of realizing all symmetric pre-cuts
characterizes the existence of paths through trees and thus realization
of types with $SOP_2$ (it was known that realizing {all}
pre-cuts characterizes realization of types with $SOP_3$). Thus
whenever $\lambda$ is not the successor of a regular cardinal,
$SOP_2$ is $\lambda$-maximal in Keisler's order. Moreover, the
question of the full maximality of $SOP_2$ is reduced to
either constructing a regular ultrafilter admitting the single

$\mathcal{D}$ on $\lambda$ so that (i) for any model $M$ of a stable

$\lambda^+$-saturated but (ii) if $Th(N)$ is not simple or not low then
$N^\lambda/\mathcal{d}$ is not $\lambda^+$-saturated. The
non-saturation result relies on the notion of flexible ultrafilters. To
prove the saturation result we develop a property of a class of simple
theories, called $Qr_1$, generalizing the fact that whenever $B$ is a
set of parameters in some sufficiently saturated model of the random
graph, $|B| = \lambda$ and $\mu < \lambda \leq 2^\mu$, then there is a
set $A$ with $|A| = \mu$ so that any nonalgebraic $p \in S(B)$ is
finitely realized in $A$. In addition to giving information about
simple unstable theories, our proof reframes the problem of saturation
of ultrapowers in several key ways. We give a new characterization of
good filters in terms of ``excellence,'' a measure of the accuracy of
the quotient Boolean algebra. We introduce and develop the notion of
{moral} ultrafilters on Boolean algebras. We prove a so-called
``separation of variables'' result which shows how the problem of
constructing ultrafilters to have a precise degree of saturation may be
profitably separated into a more set-theoretic stage, building an
excellent filter, followed by a more model-theoretic stage: building
so-called moral ultrafilters on the quotient Boolean algebra, a process
which highlights the complexity of certain patterns, arising from
first-order formulas, in certain Boolean algebras.},

notion similar to the random real forcing, replacing $\aleph_0$
by $\lambda$. So naturally, to call it a generalization we require it
to be $(< \lambda)$-complete and $\lambda^+$-c.c. and more. Of course,
we would welcome additional properties generalizing the ones of the
random real forcing. Returning to the ideal (instead of forcing) we
may look at the Boolean Algebra of $\lambda$-Borel sets modulo
the ideal. Common wisdom have said that there is no such thing, but
here surprisingly \underline{first} we get a positive =
existence answer for $\lambda$ a ``mild'' large cardinal: the weakly
compact one. Second, we try to show that this together with the meagre
ideal (for $\lambda$) behaves as in the countable case. In particular,
consider the classical Cicho\'n diagram, which compare several
cardinal characterizations of those ideals. Last but not least,

is a far-reaching generalization of the concept of a generic point of

\emph{non-forking spectrum} --- a function of two cardinals $\kappa$
and $\lambda$ giving the supremum of the possible number of types over
a model of size $\lambda$ that do not fork over a sub-model of size
$\kappa$. This is a natural generalization of the stability function of
a theory. \endgraf We make progress towards classifying the non-forking
spectra. On the one hand, we show that the possible values a
non-forking spectrum may take are quite limited. On the other hand, we
develop a general technique for constructing theories with a prescribed
non-forking spectrum, thus giving a number of examples. In particular,
we answer negatively a question of Adler whether NIP is equivalent to
bounded non-forking. \endgraf In addition, we answer a question of
Keisler regarding the number of cuts a linear order may have. Namely,

linear orders of size $\kappa$. It is known that $\kappa<{\rm

cofinality. We prove however that $2^{\kappa}\leq{\rm ded}\left( {\rm

holds. Using this result we calculate the Hanf numbers for the
existence of two-cardinal models with arbitrarily large gaps and for
the existence of arbitrarily large models omitting a type in the class
of countable dependent first-order theories. Specifically, we show that
these bounds are as large as in the class of all countable theories.},

the P-points when the P-points are equipped with this ordering. This
question is of most interest under some hypothesis that guarantees the
existence of many P-points, such as Martin's axiom

assumption that both ${\omega}_{1}$ and the reals can be embedded. This
result was later repeated for the coarser notion of Tukey reducibility.

colour by $ 2^ \theta $ colours, such that the colour of a branch
determine if the type is realized. THIS is one side on the other SIDE
we start with a strong limit $ \mu $ of cofinality $ \theta $ and a
model of cardinality $ \mu $ which embed much, then build a directed
system of sub-models, indexed by subsets of $ \lambda $ each of

some model. We say that $X$ has \emph{uniqueness} below some
cardinal $\mathfrak{t}_*$ if for any regular $\kappa <
\mathfrak{t}_*$, any two increasing $\kappa$-indexed sequences in any
two orders of $X$ have the same co-initiality. Motivated by recent
work, we investigate this phenomenon from several interrelated points
of view. We define the lower-cofinality spectrum for a regular
ultrafilter $\mathcal{D}$ on $\lambda$ and show that this spectrum may
consist of a strict initial segment of cardinals below $\lambda$ and
also that it may finitely alternate. We connect these investigations
to a question of Dow on the conjecturally nonempty (in ZFC) region of
OK but not good ultrafilters, by introducing the study of so-called
`automorphic ultrafilters' and proving that the ultrafilters which are
automorphic for some, equivalently every, unstable theory are precisely
the good ultrafilters. Finally, we axiomatize a general context
of ``lower cofinality spectrum problems'', a bare-bones
framework consisting essentially of a single tree projecting onto two
linear orders. We prove existence of a lower cofinality function in
this context show that this framework holds of theories which
are substantially less complicated than Peano arithmetic, the natural
home of cofinality spectrum problems. Along the way we give new
analogues of several open problems.},

are meagre sets and null sets. Those are equivalent to Cohen forcing
and Random real forcing for $\aleph^{\aleph_0}_0$; in spite of

very different shapes. One of these differences is in the fact that
the Cohen forcing has an easy natural generalization
for $\lambda^{\lambda}$ while $\lambda > \aleph_0$, corresponding to
an extension for the meagre sets, while the Random real forcing
didn't see to have a natural generalization, as Lebesgue measure
doesn't have a generalization for space $\lambda^\lambda$ while
$\lambda > \aleph_0$. In work [1], Shelah found a forcing resembling
the properties of Random Real Forcing for $\lambda^\lambda$ while
$\lambda$ is a weakly compact cardinal. Here we describe, with
additional assumptions, such a forcing for $\lambda^\lambda$ while
$\lambda$ is an inaccessible cardinal; this forcing preserves cardinals

alternative techniques compared to those which were initiated by Gowers

indecompo- sable Banach spaces always embed into $\ell_\infty$ and so
their density and cardinality is bounded by the continuum and
because dual Banach spaces of densities bigger than continuum are
decomposable by a result due to Heinrich and Mankiewicz. The obtained
Banach spaces are of the form $C(K)$ for some compact connected
Hausdorff space and have few operators in the sense that every linear
bounded operator $T$ on $C(K)$ for every $f\in C(K)$
satisfies $T(f)=gf+S(f)$ where $g\in C(K)$ and $S$ is weakly compact

to saturated ones in their cardinality). In \S4 we prove ``every $G \in
\bold K^{\rm lf}_{\le \mu}$ can be extended to a complete
$(\lambda,\theta)$-full $G$'' for many cardinals; we may
consider fixing the outer auto group. In \S(0C) we solve a problem of
Heckin on the automorphism group of the Hall group.},

title = {{Creature iteration for inaccessibles}},
abstract = {Our starting point is \cite{Sh:1004}. As there we
concentrate on forcing for inaccessibles and our definition is by
induction when we like to get a nice forcing. (A) Mainly we deal with
iterations for $\lambda$ inaccessible of creature forcing (so getting
appropriate forcing axioms). We concentrate on the case the forcing is
strategically $(< \lambda)$-complete $\lambda^+$-c.c. (even
$\lambda$-centered) and mainly (i.e. in (A)) on cases leading to
$\lambda$-bounding forcing. In this case we can start with $2^\lambda
> \lambda^+$ and the forcing preserves various statements. We allow
$\bold U_{\mathfrak x}$, e.g. $= \lambda^+$ to deal, e.g. with the big
at universal graphs in $\lambda^+ < 2^\lambda$, while ${\mathfrak
d}_\lambda = \lambda^+$. The decision of ``weakly compact''
\underline{or} demand? is done via the choice of $\bold j$. (B) A
different case is in the same framework but naturally assuming
$2^\lambda = \lambda^+$. The forcing satisfies only
the $\lambda^{++}$-c.c. and is $\kappa$-proper so do not
collapse $\lambda^+$. We may make $2^\lambda$ arbitrarily large
\underline{or} weaken the demands on forcing and get $2^\lambda =
\lambda^{++}$. ' We only later do something concerning this. (C)
Changing the frame somewhat, we allow adding unbounded $\lambda$-reals
(i.e. $\eta \in {}^\lambda \lambda$) without adding $\lambda$-Cohens.
For this we need to assume $\lambda$ is measurable and use a fix normal
ultrafilter $\mathbb{E}$ on it. \endgraf (D) For some purposes we need
stronger changes in the framework: allowing $H$'s in the $\bold i$'s.
This includes $(f,g)$-bounding.},

that in a flat theory every type has finite weight and therefore flat
theories are strong.},

above the continuum which are in sharp contrast to well-known facts
about these same invariants at the continuum. It is shown that for
an uncoutable regular cardinal $\kappa, \mathfrak{b}(\kappa) =
\kappa^+$ implies $\mathfrak{a}(\kappa) = \kappa^+$. This improves an
earlier result of Blass, Hyttinen and Zhang [3]. It is also shown that
if $\kappa \ge \beta_\omega$ is an uncountable regular cardinal,
then $\mathfrak{d} (\kappa) \le \mathfrak{r}(\kappa)$. This
result partially dualizes an earlier theorem of the authors [6]},
