Cardinal characteristics of the continuum and partitions
- 5 Downloads
We prove that for regular cardinals κ, combinations of the stick principle at κ and certain cardinal characteristics at κ being κ+ cause partition relations such as κ+ → (κ+, (κ : 2))2 and (κ+)2 → (κ+κ, 4)2 to fail. Polarised partition relations are also considered, and the results are used to answer several problems posed by Garti, Larson and Shelah.
