Choiceless Chain Conditions

  title={Choiceless Chain Conditions},
  author={Asaf Karagila and Noah David Schweber},
. Chain conditions are one of the major tools used in the theory of forcing. We say that a partial order has the countable chain condition if every antichain (in the sense of forcing) is countable. Without the axiom of choice antichains tend to be of little use, for various reasons, and in this short note we study a number of conditions which in ZFC are equivalent to the countable chain condition.

It is shown that if Martin's Axiom (MA) is restricted to well-orderable sets, and if the countable antichain condition is replaced by either a finite antichain condition or a finite «Q-strong

In this paper, without the axiom of choice, we show that if a certain downward Lowenheim-Skolem property holds then all grounds are uniformly definable. We also prove that the axiom of choice is
The maximum principle in forcing and the axiom of choice
In this paper we prove that the maximum principle in forcing is equivalent to the axiom of choice. We also look at some specic partial orders in the basic Cohen model.
On Martin's Axiom and Forms of Choice
This paper defines MA∗ to be the statement that for every (not necessarily well-ordered) cardinal n < 2א0 , the authors have that MAn holds, and investigates the set-theoretic strength of the principleMA∗.
Generic extensions of models of ZFC
The paper contains a self-contained alternative proof of my Theorem in Characterization of generic extensions of models of set theory, Fund. Math. 83 (1973), 35--46, saying that for models
A framework for iterating symmetric extensions in order to construct new models of ZF is developed and it is shown how to obtain some well-known and lesser-known results using this framework.
We propose that failures of the axiom of choice, that is, surjective functions admitting no sections, can be reasonably classified by means of invariants borrowed from algebraic topology. We show

We prove some general theorems for preserving Dependent Choice when taking symmetric extensions, some of which are unwritten folklore results. We apply these to various constructions to obtain
