Bukowský and Balcar identified beautiful and handy criteria in the 1970'ies which got applied recently in set theoretical geology. Later, Woodin isolated his extender algebra which makes use of a large cardinal, a Woodin cardinal. It turns out that Bukowský's and Woodin's approaches may be presented in a uniform fashion. We will presuppose only basic knowledge of forcing, present Bukowský's and Woodin's results in a general framework, and discuss applications in set theoretic geology and descriptive ... |
