On certain indestructibility of strong cardinals and a question of Hajnal

  • Moti Gitik
  • Saharon Shelah


A model in which strongness ofκ is indestructible under κ+ -weakly closed forcing notions satisfying the Prikry condition is constructed. This is applied to solve a question of Hajnal on the number of elements of {λδ|2δ<λ}.
