Ordinals and Cardinals

  • Bruno Poizat
Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


This chapter includes no model theory. It is written for the reader’s convenience: Every time there has been a reference to “ordinals” or “transfinite recursion” up to this point, you have been asked to accept the validity of the proofs offered by analogy to the denumerablc case, and promised a more extensive exposition later. The time has come for this exposition, since we are going to need some quite precise results on “cardinal arithmetic” beginning in the next chapter.
