### What axioms (other than choice) have a taming effect on the ordering of cardinalities?

Axiom of choice arranges all cardinalities into a well-ordered chain but without it their ordering can be wild in general ZF models, e.g. two cardinalities may not even have inf or sup. However, ...

### Universal $(\Sigma^2_1)^{\text{Hom}_{\mathord{<}\lambda}}$ set

Does anyone know of a reference for the fact that if $\lambda$ is a limit of Woodin cardinals, then the pointclass $(\Sigma^2_1)^{\text{Hom}_{\mathord{<}\lambda}}$ is $\omega$-parameterized? By ...

### Determinacy from $\omega_1\rightarrow(\omega_1)^{\omega_1}$

Assuming the Axiom of Determinacy (abbreviated AD), Martin showed how to derive a rather strong partition on $\omega_1$, namely that $\omega_1\rightarrow(\omega_1)^{\omega_1}$. In "Infinitary ...

### Consistency strength of projective determinacy (PD)

Let PD stand for projective determinacy, and consider the two claims:
(1) For each n=1,2,..., Con(ZFC+PD) implies Con(ZFC + there are n Woodin cardinals)
(2) Con(ZFC+PD) implies Con(ZFC + there are ...

### How to prove projective determinacy (PD) from I0?

Martin and Steel (in 1987?) showed that if there are infinite many Woodin cardinals then every projective set of reals is determined (PD).
However, it is mentioned in many texts that in 1983/1984 ...
