Mad families, splitting families and large continuum

  • Jörg Brendle (a1) and Vera Fischer (a2)


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 . If μ is a measurable cardinal and μ < κ < λ, then using similar techniques we obtain the consistency of .
