Mahlo Cardinal

In mathematics, a Mahlo cardinal is a certain kind of large cardinal number. Mahlo cardinals were first described by Paul Mahlo (1911, 1912, 1913). As with all large cardinals, none of these varieties of Mahlo cardinals can be proved to exist by ZFC (assuming ZFC is consistent).

A cardinal number κ is called Mahlo if κ is inaccessible and the set U = {λ < κ: λ is inaccessible} is stationary in κ.

A cardinal κ is called weakly Mahlo if κ is weakly inaccessible and the set of weakly inaccessible cardinals less than κ is stationary in κ.

Famous quotes containing the word cardinal:

    In nothing was slavery so savage and relentless as in its attempted destruction of the family instincts of the Negro race in America. Individuals, not families; shelters, not homes; herding, not marriages, were the cardinal sins in that system of horrors.
    Fannie Barrier Williams (1855–1944)
