Existence of some sparse sets of nonstandard natural numbers

Journal of Symbolic Logic 66 (2):959-973 (2001)
Abstract
Answers are given to two questions concerning the existence of some sparse subsets of $\mathscr{H} = \{0, 1,..., H - 1\} \subseteq * \mathbb{N}$ , where H is a hyperfinite integer. In § 1, we answer a question of Kanovei by showing that for a given cut U in H, there exists a countably determined set $X \subseteq \mathscr{H}$ which contains exactly one element in each U-monad, if and only if U = a · N for some $a \in \mathscr{H} \backslash \{0\}$ . In §2, we deal with a question of Keisler and Leth in [6]. We show that there is a cut $V \subseteq \mathscr{H}$ such that for any cut U, (i) there exists a U-discrete set $X \subseteq \mathscr{H}$ with X + X = H (mod H) provided $U \subsetneqq V$ , (ii) there does not exist any U-discrete set $X \subseteq \mathscr{H}$ with X + X = H (mod H) provided $\supsetneqq V$ . We obtain some partial results for the case U = V
