Hi everybody,

I am going to make up a list of theorems, lemmas, calculations about cardinals and ordinals that we need for the course. For example, on the list should be the assertion( and proof!) that if a cardinal is a limit cardinal in some V_kappa, for kappa inaccessible, then it is a limit cardinal in V. (In fact a much more general fact is true.)

So can you send me any questions about cardinals and ordinals that you can think of, that should be on the list? Thanks!
