    The Spectrum of Independence.Vera Fischer & Saharon Shelah - forthcoming - Archive for Mathematical Logic:1-7.
    We study the set of possible size of maximal independent families to which we refer as spectrum of independence and denote \\). Here mif abbreviates maximal independent family. We show that:1.whenever \ are finitely many regular uncountable cardinals, it is consistent that \\); 2.whenever \ has uncountable cofinality, it is consistent that \=\{\aleph _1,\kappa =\mathfrak {c}\}\). Assuming large cardinals, in addition to above, we can provide that $$\begin{aligned} \cap \hbox {Spec}=\emptyset \end{aligned}$$for each i, \.

    We show that is consistent with the existence of a -definable wellorder of the reals and a -definable ω-mad subfamily of [ω]ω.

    Mad Families, Splitting Families and Large Continuum.Jörg Brendle & Vera Fischer - 2011 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 76 (1):198 - 208.
    Let κ < λ be regular uncountable cardinals. Using a finite support iteration (in fact a matrix iteration) of ccc posets we obtain the consistency of b = a = κ < s = λ. If μ is a measurable cardinal and μ < κ < λ, then using similar techniques we obtain the consistency of b = κ < a = s = λ.

    Cardinal Characteristics and Projective Wellorders.Vera Fischer & Sy David Friedman - 2010 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 161 (7):916-922.
    Using countable support iterations of S-proper posets, we show that the existence of a definable wellorder of the reals is consistent with each of the following: , and.

    Cardinal Characteristics, Projective Wellorders and Large Continuum.Vera Fischer, Sy David Friedman & Lyubomyr Zdomskyy - 2013 - Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 164 (7-8):763-770.
    We extend the work of Fischer et al. [6] by presenting a method for controlling cardinal characteristics in the presence of a projective wellorder and 2ℵ0>ℵ2. This also answers a question of Harrington [9] by showing that the existence of a Δ31 wellorder of the reals is consistent with Martinʼs axiom and 2ℵ0=ℵ3.

    Ideals of Independence.Vera Fischer & Diana Carolina Montoya - forthcoming - Archive for Mathematical Logic:1-19.
    We study two ideals which are naturally associated to independent families. The first of them, denoted \, is characterized by a diagonalization property which allows along a cofinal sequence of stages along a finite support iteration to adjoin a maximal independent family. The second ideal, denoted \\), originates in Shelah’s proof of \ in Shelah, 433–443, 1992). We show that for every independent family \, \\subseteq \mathcal {J}_\mathcal {A}\) and define a class of maximal independent families, to which we refer (...)

    Free Sequences in $${Mathscr {P}}Left /Text {Fin}$$.David Chodounský, Vera Fischer & Jan Grebík - forthcoming - Archive for Mathematical Logic:1-17.
    We investigate maximal free sequences in the Boolean algebra \ {/}\text {fin}\), as defined by Monk :593–610, 2011). We provide some information on the general structure of these objects and we are particularly interested in the minimal cardinality of a free sequence, a cardinal characteristic of the continuum denoted \. Answering a question of Monk, we demonstrate the consistency of \. In fact, this consistency is demonstrated in the model of Shelah for \ :433–443, 1992). Our paper provides a streamlined (...)

    We show that the existence of a ${\Pi^1_1}$ -definable mad family is consistent with the existence of a ${\Delta^{1}_{3}}$ -definable well-order of the reals and ${\mathfrak{b}=\mathfrak{c}=\aleph_3}$.

    A Co-Analytic Maximal Set of Orthogonal Measures.Vera Fischer & Asger Törnquist - 2010 - Journal of Symbolic Logic 75 (4):1403-1414.
    We prove that if V = L then there is a $\Pi _{1}^{1}$ maximal orthogonal (i.e., mutually singular) set of measures on Cantor space. This provides a natural counterpoint to the well-known theorem of Preiss and Rataj [16] that no analytic set of measures can be maximal orthogonal.
