Abstract

There exists a family of sets of countable ordinals such that:

(1) max Bα = α,

(2) if αBβ then BαBβ,

(3) if λα and λ is a limit ordinal then Bαλ is not in the ideal generated by the Bβ, β < α, and by the bounded subsets of λ,

(4) there is a partition of ω1 such that for every α and every n, BαAn is finite.
