We prove that the following are consistent with ZFC. 1. 2 ω = ℵ ω 1 + K C = ℵ ω 1 + K B = K U = ω 2 (for measure and category simultaneously). 2. 2 ω = ℵ ω 1 = K C (L) + K C (M) = ω 2 . This concludes the discussion about the cofinality of K C.
Bartoszynski, T. and S. Shelah, Closed measure zero sets, Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 58 93–110. We study the relationship between the σ-ideal generated by closed measure zero sets and the ideals of null and meager sets. We show that the additivity of the ideal of closed measure zero sets is not bigger than covering for category. As a consequence we get that the additivity of the ideal of closed measure zero sets is equal to the additivity of the (...) ideal of meager sets. (shrink)
A set X⊆ℝ is strongly meager if for every measure zero set H, X+H ≠ℝ. Let [Formula: see text] denote the collection of strongly meager sets. We show that assuming [Formula: see text], [Formula: see text] is not an ideal.
We study the cardinal invariants of measure and category after adding one random real. In particular, we show that the number of measure zero subsets of the plane which are necessary to cover graphs of all continuous functions may be large while the covering for measure is small.
In this paper we present two consistency results concerning the existence of large strong measure zero and strongly meager sets.
