Axiomatic set theory 2, spring 2009
Scope: We continue with our study of forcing, through iterated forcing. We also cover Boolean-valued models of set theory. Our text is Kenneth Kunen's Set Theory.
Prerequisites: Introductory set theory course would be helpful, and knowledge of Kunen's text through chapter VII, section 3.
Weeks 3-9 and 11-18, Monday 12-14 in room BK 106 and Wednesday 14-16 in room C220.
Easter holiday 9.-15.4. *MONDAY APRIL 27TH WE MEET AT 14:00 IN OUR USUAL ROOM*
Tuesday 16-18, B322
Exercise 1: p.238,A5,A6,A7. p. 240, B5.
Exercise 2: 3 Problems: The assertion on page 208, line -8, how exactly was Zorn's lemma used? Lemma 5.13, prove in detail. Prove lemma VII, 2.17.
