Abstract

We investigate the problem of when ≤λ-support iterations of <-complete notions of forcing preserveλ+. We isolate a property - properness over diamonds - that implies λ+ is preserved and show that this property is preserved by λ-support iterations. Our condition is a relative of that presented by Roslanowski and Shelah in [2]; it is not clear if the two conditions are equivalent. We close with an application of our technology by presenting a consistency result on uniformizing colorings of ladder systems on {δ < λ+ : cf(δ) = λ} that complements a theorem of Shelah.
