# Minimally generated Boolean algebras and the Nikodym property

@inproceedings{Sobota2021MinimallyGB, title={Minimally generated Boolean algebras and the Nikodym property}, author={Damian Sobota and Lyubomyr Zdomskyy}, year={2021} }

A Boolean algebra A has the Nikodym property if every pointwise bounded sequence of bounded finitely additive measures on A is uniformly bounded. Assuming the Diamond Principle ♦, we will construct an example of a minimally generated Boolean algebra A with the Nikodym property. The Stone space of such an algebra must necessarily be an Efimov space. The converse is, however, not true—again under ♦ we will provide an example of a minimally generated Boolean algebra whose Stone space is Efimov but…

We prove that if A is an infinite Boolean algebra in the ground model V and P is a notion of forcing adding any of the following reals: a Cohen real, an unsplit real, or a random real, then, in any…

We employ a forcing approach to extending Boolean algebras. A link between some forcings and some cardinal functions on Boolean algebras is found and exploited. We find the following applications: 1)…

Nikodym's theorem [2, Theorem 4, pp. 309-311] is a "striking improvement of the principle of uniform boundedness" in the space of countably additive measures on a sigma algebra. It says that if a set…
