Does the HOD dichotomy preclude a model of a proper class of supercompact cardinals which are not HOD-supercompact?

I will be presenting my version of the notes of Woodin’s talk at the Appalachian Set Theory seminar on his paper, the HOD Dichotomy. In particular I will be discussing Woodin’s version and definition of a model of set theory being “far from HOD”. I will also be discussing how this relates to some possible future results (see title) as well as a recent result of Cheng,Friedman and Hamkins, which seem on their face to contradict Woodin’s premise.

Apter, and now holds a faculty position at Kingsborough CC of CUNY and is active in the logic seminars at the Graduate Center. She conducts research in forcing and large cardinals, with a particular emphasis on aspects of definability.
