The consistency strength of “every stationary set reflects”
- 87 Downloads
The consistency strength of a regular cardinal so that every stationary set reflects is the same as that of a regular cardinal with a normal idealI so that everyI-positive set reflects in aI-positive set. We call such a cardinal areflection cardinal and such an ideal areflection ideal. The consistency strength is also the same as the existence of a regular cardinal κ so that every κ-free (abelian) group is κ+-free. In L, the first reflection cardinal is greater than the first greatly Mahlo cardinal and less than the first weakly compact cardinal (if any).
