  • OMER BEN-NERIA (a1) and MOTI GITIK (a2)

Let κ, λ be regular uncountable cardinals such that λ > κ+ is not a successor of a singular cardinal of low cofinality. We construct a generic extension with s(κ) = λ starting from a ground model in which o(κ) = λ and prove that assuming ¬0, s(κ) = λ implies that o(κ) ≥ λ in the core model.
