This e-book is worried with cardinal quantity valued services outlined for any Boolean algebra. Examples of such services are independence, which assigns to every Boolean algebra the supremum of the cardinalities of its unfastened subalgebras, and cellularity, which supplies the supremum of cardinalities of units of pairwise disjoint components. Twenty-one such services are studied intimately, and plenty of extra in passing. The questions thought of are the behaviour of those services less than algebraic operations reminiscent of items, unfastened items, ultraproducts, and their relationships to at least one another.

Assuming familiarity with in simple terms the fundamentals of Boolean algebras and set conception, via easy countless combinatorics and forcing, the publication studies present wisdom approximately those services, giving entire proofs for many proof. a distinct function of the publication is the eye given to open difficulties, of which 185 are formulated.

Based on Cardinal features on Boolean Algebras (1990) and Cardinal Invariants on Boolean Algebras (1996) through a similar writer, the current paintings is far better than both of those. It comprises ideas to a number of the open difficulties of the sooner volumes. one of the new subject matters are continuum cardinals on Boolean algebras, with a long remedy of the reaping quantity. Diagrams on the finish of the ebook summarize the relationships among the features for lots of vital periods of Boolean algebras, together with period algebras, tree algebras and superatomic algebras.

An important invariant of a topological house is its basic workforce. whilst this is often trivial, the ensuing homotopy concept is easily researched and normal. within the normal case, besides the fact that, homotopy idea over nontrivial primary teams is way extra complicated and much much less good understood. Syzygies and Homotopy concept explores the matter of nonsimply hooked up homotopy within the first nontrivial instances and offers, for the 1st time, a scientific rehabilitation of Hilbert's approach to syzygies within the context of non-simply hooked up homotopy conception.

It is also useful to note that if A is a semigroup algebra, then so is Dup(A). We prove this now. Let H be a generating set for A satisfying conditions (1)–(3). We define H = {(a, S(a)) : a ∈ H} ∪ {(0, {F }) : F ∈ Ult(A)}. We claim that H shows that Dup(A) is a semigroup algebra. Clearly (0, 0), (1, 1) ∈ H and H is closed under ·. To show that H is disjunctive, we consider two possibilities: (a, S(a)) ≤ h0 + · · · + hn where a = 0. Say that hi has the form (bi , S(bi )) for all i ∈ M , and the form (0, {Fi }) for all i ∈ (n + 1)\M .

Um ) is clopen in Exp(X). For, suppose that F ∈ Exp(X)\V (U1 , . . , Um ). Case 1. F ⊆ U1 ∪· · ·∪Um . Then for some Γ ⊆ {1, . . , m} we have F ∈ V (X\(U1 ∪ · · · ∪ Um ), Ui i∈Γ ), and this set is disjoint from V (U1 , . . , Um ). Case 2. F ⊆ U1 ∪ · · · ∪ Um . Then there is an i such that F ∩ Ui = ∅. Hence F ∈ V (X\Ui ), and V (X\Ui ) is disjoint from V (U1 , . . , Um ). (3) If U1 , . . , Um , W1 , . . , Wn are open and F ∈ V (U1 , . . , Um ) ∩ V (W1 , . . , Wn ), then F ∈ V ( Ui ∩ Wj : F ∩ Ui ∩ Wj = 0 ).
