About the Authors
  • The proceedings of the Los Angeles Caltech-UCLA “Cabal Seminar” were originally published in the 1970s and 1980s. Games, Scales, and Suslin Cardinals is the first of a series of four books collecting the seminal papers from the original volumes together with extensive unpublished material, new papers on related topics, and discussion of research developments since the publication of the original volumes. Focusing on the subjects of “Games and Scales” (Part 1) and “Suslin Cardinals, Partition Properties, and Homogeneity” (Part 2), each of the two sections is preceded by an introductory survey putting the papers into present context.

    • Includes updated/revised material from original volume of Cabal Seminars

    '… beautifully typed … quite different from a mere reprint of the previous Lecture Notes. Instead, the material is carefully organised so that it may serve as an advanced textbook equally well as a monograph on descriptive set theory.' EMS Newsletter
