abstract

  • We present a general framework for carrying out some constructions. The unifying factor is a combinatorial principle which we present in terms of a game in which the first player challenges the second player to carry out constructions which would be much easier in a generic extension of the universe, and the second player cheats with the aid of Diamond. Section 1 contains an axiomatic framework suitable for the description of a number of related constructions, and the statement of the main theorem in terms of this framework. In section 2 we illustrate the use of our combinatorial principle. The proof of the main result is then carried out in sections 3-5.
