Maximal ideals of the rings of Baire- One Functions
Isn't $Ba_1(X)$ a commutative C*-algebra (in which case it is certainly a PM-ring)? |

Characterizing Posets by Functions Into Natural Numbers
@Nik. What I had in mind amounts to taking finite subsets of the set of prime numbers whereas you are allowing arbitary subsets. (Actually in $Z$ shouldn't you be including the zero ideal as a prime ideal, so that $P$ isn't an unordered set?) Your approach seems to jettison the topology that is available if $P$ is a poset of prime ideals. But I suppose that not every poset is a poset of prime ideals of a ring? |

Presumably in the case when $P$ is the poset of prime ideals of a ring, $P^∗$ is isomorphic to the lattice of semiprime ideals? |

countably complete filters
Thanks. I will have to think about this. Presumably the definition of a Lindelof element is not quite right? |

F-spaces and points whose complements are C*-embedded
Thanks. A more complicated problem than I realised! Is it known what the situation is for Shelah's model with no P-points? |

iterating ultrapowers of C*-algebras
I now understand from Nik's answer that the natural containment is strict at each stage, so in this sense the process never stabilizes. On the other hand, as far as constructing new C*-algebras is concerned, the process 'stabilizes' as soon at the ultrapower is isomorphic as a C*-algebra to its predecessor. So I am very interested in this question of whether $A^1$ and $A^2$ are C*-isomorphic (under CH). |

closed meagre sets
Thanks for this: it gives an easy way of visualizing a meagre subset of $C$. |

iterating ultrapowers of C*-algebras
@ Joel. Yes, I was just thinking of external isomorphism. So in my question, I am interested in whether $A^1$ and $A^2$ are isomorphic as C*-algebras. |
