We prove that, e.g., in (ω 3)(ω 3) there is no sequence of length W4 increasing modulo the ideal of countable sets (© 2010 WILEY‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim) 
Are all natural numbers the same
Recently there have been several attempts to develop forcing axioms analogous to the proper forcing axiom (PFA) for cardinals of the form אn where n > 1. We investigate the difficulties of doing this

This is an overview about a method of constructing ccc forcings: Suppose first that a continuous, commutative system of complete embeddings between countable forcings indexed along $\omega_1$ is
PCF arithmetic without and with choice
We deal with relatives of GCH which are provable. In particular, we deal with rank version of the revised GCH. Our motivation was to find such results when only weak versions of the axiom of choice
Are all natural numbers the same.
This is a report on state-of-the-art on the question of developing higher analogues of the forcing axiom PFA. Recently there have been several attempts to develop forcing axioms analogous to the

In these notes we present the method introduced by Neeman of generalized side conditions with two types of models. We then discuss some applications: the Friedman-Mitchell poset for adding a club in
On constructions with 2-cardinals
We propose developing the theory of consequences of morasses relevant in mathematical applications in the language alternative to the usual one, replacing commonly used structures by families of sets

More on cardinal arithmetic
TLDR
This paper deals with variety of problems in pcf theory and infinitary combinatorics, looking at normal filters and prc, measures of the size of [lambda]^{ with |B_i|<mu_i, and the existence of strongly almost disjoint families.

TLDR
Another version of exponentiation is characterized: maximal number of k-branches in a tree with λ nodes, and cardinal invariants for each λ with a pcf restriction are given.
The generalized continuum hypothesis revisited
We can reformulate the generalized continuum problem as: for regular κ<λ we have λ to the power κ is λ, We argue that the reasonable reformulation of the generalized continuum hypothesis, considering
