Made every scale a gem;

He kissed his fin to them.

In science:
It is proved that there exists an (ω1 , ω1 ) Souslin gap in the Boolean algebra (L0 (ν ) /Fin, ⊆∗ ae ) for every nonseparable measure ν .
Random gaps
For example, if (A, B ) is an (ω1 , ω1 ) gap in P (N) / Fin and Q is a poset which collapses ℵ1 , then by Hadamard’s theorem, which generalizes to any limit ordinal of countable coﬁnality, forcing with Q must introduce an element of P (N) / Fin which interpolates (A, B ) and thus renders it a non-gap.
Random gaps
The statement “all (ω1 , ω1 ) gaps in P (N) / Fin are indestructible” is in fact a Ramsey theoretic statement which is closely analogous to Souslin’s Hypothesis.
Random gaps
When working with pregaps in P (N) / Fin one often works with representatives (i.e. subsets of N) of the equivalence classes.
Random gaps
Souslin’s Hypothesis is consistent with the existence of a Souslin (ω1 , ω1 ) gap in P (N) / Fin.
Random gaps
Then some condition in R+ forces that there exists a Souslin (ω1 , ω1 ) gap in P (N) / Fin.
Random gaps
There exists a Souslin (ω1 , ω1 ) gap in P (N) / Fin.
Random gaps
Using Woodin’s Theorem (Theorem 1.3), it is routine to obtain a Π1 formula ϕ(x, y , a) so that ϕ(x, y , ω1 ) holds iff (x, y ) forms a Souslin (ω1 , ω1 ) gap in P (N) / Fin.
Random gaps
Broadening our scope to include arbitrary pregaps in P (N)/Fin, Theorem 1.3 is no longer true.
Random gaps
Gaps in (L0 (ν ) / Fin, ⊆∗ae ) Let (R, µ) be the measure algebra of some σ-ﬁnite measure space (X, Σ, ν ).
Random gaps
In considering R-names for gaps in P (N) / Fin, we are led to consider gaps in another Boolean algebra.
Random gaps
R(θ) -name for a pregap in (P (N) / Fin, ⊆∗).
Random gaps
And a pregap in L0 (µ(θ) ) / Fin is a gap iff when viewed as an R(θ) -name for a pregap it is a gap in P (N) / Fin with positive probability.
Random gaps
Let us note that gaps in L0 (ν ) / Fin are a generalization of gaps in P (N) / Fin, because if (X, Σ, ν ) is a trivial measure space with one element of measure one, then (L0 (ν ) / Fin, ⊆∗ ae ) and (P (N) / Fin, ⊆∗ ) are isomorphic.
Random gaps
Finally, we notice that the existence of an (ω1 , ω1 ) gap in L0(ν ) / Fin for any σ-ﬁnite measure ν , follows from Hausdorff ’s Theorem on the existence of these gaps in P (N) / Fin applied in the appropriate random forcing extension.
