Why is Prikry forcing subcomplete?

The CUNY Graduate Center

Subcomplete forcing was introduced by Jensen as a class of forcings which do not add reals, but may change cofinalities to $\omega$, unlike proper forcing. In this talk I will show that Prikry forcing is subcomplete.

Kaethe Minden is currently a graduate student in the Ph.D. program in mathematics at the CUNY Graduate Center, studying set theory under the supervision of Gunter Fuchs.
