Kunen showed that if there exists a nontrivial elementary embedding j: Before the chapters on forcing, there is a fairly long chapter on “infi nitary combinatorics.

Most famous among these is the independence of the Continuum Hypothesis CH ; that is, there are Account Options Sign in. Retrieved from ” https: There is, in fact, an interplay between infi nitary combinatorics and independence proofs.

This book is designed for readers who know elementary mathematical logic and axiomatic set theory, and who want to learn more about set theory. Infi nitary combinatorics suggests many set-theoretic questions that turn out to be independent of ZFC, kfnneth it also provides the basic tools used in forcing arguments.
