Publisher Comments:

Forcing is a powerful tool from logic which is used to prove that certain propositions of mathematics are independent of the basic axioms of set theory, ZFC. This book explains clearly, to non-logicians, the technique of forcing and its connection with independence, and gives a full proof that a naturally arising and deep question of analysis is independent of ZFC. It provides an accessible account of this result, and it includes a discussion, of Martin's Axiom and of the independence of CH.

Table of Contents

1. Homomorphisms from algebras of continuous functions; 2. Partial orders, Boolean algebras, and ultraproducts; 3. Woodin's condition; 4. Independence in set theory; 5. Martin's Axiom; 6. Gaps in ordered sets; 7. Forcing; 8. Iterated Forcing.
