This ebook is anxious with cardinal quantity valued capabilities outlined for any Boolean algebra. Examples of such services are independence, which assigns to every Boolean algebra the supremum of the cardinalities of its unfastened subalgebras, and cellularity, which supplies the supremum of cardinalities of units of pairwise disjoint components. Twenty-one such features are studied intimately, and lots of extra in passing. The questions thought of are the behaviour of those features lower than algebraic operations equivalent to items, unfastened items, ultraproducts, and their relationships to at least one another.

Assuming familiarity with merely the fundamentals of Boolean algebras and set thought, via easy limitless combinatorics and forcing, the ebook studies present wisdom approximately those services, giving entire proofs for many evidence. a distinct characteristic of the publication is the eye given to open difficulties, of which 185 are formulated.

Based on Cardinal capabilities on Boolean Algebras (1990) and Cardinal Invariants on Boolean Algebras (1996) by way of an analogous writer, the current paintings is far higher than both of those. It includes options to a few of the open difficulties of the sooner volumes. one of the new subject matters are continuum cardinals on Boolean algebras, with a long therapy of the reaping quantity. Diagrams on the finish of the booklet summarize the relationships among the capabilities for plenty of very important periods of Boolean algebras, together with period algebras, tree algebras and superatomic algebras.

S(am−1 )) has infinitely many members, as desired. We also proved: (5) {yΓ : Γ ⊆ κ}, as a subspace of Ult(A), is closed and has no isolated points. The following is obvious: (6) {{zΓ } : Γ finite and non-empty} is the set of all atoms of Exp(A), which is atomic. Let xα = V (S(κ\{α}), S({α})) for all α < κ. (7) xα /fin : α < κ is a system of independent elements of Exp(A)/fin. To show this, suppose that Γ and Δ are finite disjoint subsets of κ; we want to show that α∈Γ xα ∩ α∈Δ −xα is not a finite sum of atoms.

Thus this notion generalizes that of a tree, where T ↓ t is required to be well ordered. We define Treealg(T ) to be the subalgebra of P(T ) generated by {T ↑ t : t ∈ T }; such algebras are called pseudo-tree algebras. Pseudo-tree algebras are treated thoroughly in Koppelberg, Monk [92]. Much of the theory of tree algebras described in §16 of the BA Handbook, Vol. 1, carries over to pseudo-tree algebras. For the convenience of the reader, we give a self-contained treatment of the fundamentals of the theory of pseudo-tree algebras.

F (cn−1 ) = 0, as desired. Clearly if f is onto, then the extension is onto. Assume the hypothesis of “Finally. ”. Let b0 , . . , bm−1 , c0 , . . , cn−1 be distinct elements of H such that f (b0 ) · . . · f (bm−1 ) · −f (c0 ) · . . · −f (cn−1 ) = 0. We want to show that b0 · . . · bm−1 · −c0 · . . · −cn−1 = 0. Wlog m, n > 0. Thus f (b0 · . . · bm−1 ) ∈ K, and f (b0 · . . · bm−1 ) ≤ f (c0 ) + · · · + f (cn−1 ), so there is an i < n such that f (b0 ·. ·bm−1 ) ≤ f (ci ). Hence f (b0 ·. ·bm−1 ) = f (b0 ·.
