Subtlety and partition relations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We study the subtlety of a cardinal κ and of kΛ. We show that, under a certain large cardinal assumption, it is consistent that kΛ is subtle for some Λ > κ but κ is not subtle, and the consistency of such a situation is much stronger than the existence of a subtle cardinal. We show that the subtlety of PkΛ can be characterized by a certain partition relation on kΛ. We also study the property of faintness of κ, and the subtlety of kΛ with the strong inclusion.
