Continuum hypothesis as a model-theoretical problem

Jaakko Hintikka 1. How to Study Set Theory The continuum hypothesis (CH) is crucial in the core area of set theory, viz. in the theory of the hierarchies of infinite cardinal and infinite ordinal numbers. It is crucial in that it would, if true, help to relate the two hierarchies to each other. It says that the second infinite cardinal number, which is known to be the cardinality of the first uncountable ordinal, equals the cardinality 2 o of the continuum. (Here o is the smallest infinite cardinal.).
