Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Suppose that P is a forcing notion, L is a language (in V), (Formula presented.) a P-name such that (Formula presented.) “(Formula presented.) is a countable L-structure”. In the product P × P, there are names (Formula presented.) such that for any generic filter G = G1 × G2 over P × P, (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.). Zapletal asked whether or not (Formula presented.) implies that there is some M ∈ V such that (Formula presented.). We answer this question negatively and discuss related issues.
