Blowing up power of a singular cardinal-wider gaps

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper is concerned with methods for blowing power of singular cardinals using short extenders. Thus, for example, starting with κ of cofinality ω with {α < κ o(α) ≥ α+n} cofinal in κ for every n < ω we construct a cardinal preserving extension having the same bounded subsets of κ and satisfying 2κ = κ+δ+1 for any δ < א1.
