### Topologically Ordered Families of Disjoint Cantor Sets in $I$?

Suppose that we have an uncountable collection $C_\alpha$ of disjoint Cantor Sets contained in the closed unit interval $I$. Suppose we have ordered the indices $\alpha \in [0,1]$ as well. Then is ...

### Can there be a segment of regular cardinals with the tree property capped by an almost-strongly-compact?

Recall that a cardinal $\kappa$ is $(\lambda,\infty)$-almost-strongly-compact if every $\kappa$-complete filter can be refined to a $\lambda$-complete ultrafilter. A cardinal $\mu$ has the tree ...

### Real numbers with given complexity

This may be an easy question or it may be related to a well known open problem in Computer Science. Let $\alpha>0$. We say that $\alpha$ is computed in time $T(n)$ if there is a Turing machine ...

### To what logic does the free Boolean sigma-algebra of countably many generators correspond to?

The free Boolean algebra on countably many generators is closely related to the classical (two-valued) propositional calculus (after identification of logically equivalent formulas). By the Stone ...

### Time functions of non-deterministic Turing machines

Let $M$ be a non-deterministic Turing machine which recognizes a language $L$, that is, for every input word $u$ there is an accepting computation with input $u$ if and only if $u\in L$. The smallest ...

### Upward confluence in the interaction calculus

The lambda calculus is not upward confluent, counterexamples being known for a long time. Now, what about the interaction calculus? Specifically, I am looking for configurations $c_1$ and $c_2$ such ...

### What is the consistency limit of accumulative typing below $\omega_1^{CK}$?

Let $Th_\zeta$ be a Mono-sorted first order theory with $\zeta$ representing some recursive ordinal notation system. Primitives: =, $\in$, $T_0, T_1, ..,T_i,..$ where i is an $\zeta$ ordinal, and ...

### ZF + “every Suslin set of reals is ${\bf \Sigma}^1_2$”

What is known about the theory ($\ast$) ZF + "every Suslin set of reals is ${\bf \Sigma}^1_2$"? By "reals" I mean elements of the Baire space $\omega^\omega$. For a cardinal $\kappa$, a set of ...
Constructively, my only interest in regular cardinals is in terms of the "$\Sigma$-universes" they generate. By a $\Sigma$-universe, I mean a collection of triples $(X,Y,f: X \to Y)$ closed under base ...
Suppose we have a logic for counterfactuals as with David Lewis. I here use $\Rrightarrow$ for the counterfactual conditional. So suppose we have: Rules: (1) If $A$ and $A\rightarrow B$ are ...
