- Comment by Victoria Gitman on Cofinality of $j(\kappa)$ for a measurability embedding $j:V\to M$ with critical point $\kappa$@AsafKaragila I edited the question to make it clearer. Maybe I will ask your version as a follow-up if you don't ask it first :).Victoria Gitman
- Comment by Victoria Gitman on Cofinality of $j(\kappa)$ for a measurability embedding $j:V\to M$ with critical point $\kappa$@AsafKaragila I should have done a better job stating my question clearly. I wanted to know precisely what Yair answered: whether there are models where $\text{cf}(j(\kappa))$ is smaller than the size of $j(\kappa)$. Your interpretation of the question is very interesting as well, but I think much harder to answer.Victoria Gitman

## Tennenbaum’s Theorem

Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorems established two fundamental types of incompleteness phenomena in first-order arithmetic (and stronger theories). The First Incompleteness Theorem showed that no recursive axiomatization extending ${\rm PA}$ can decide all properties of natural numbers and the Second Incompleteness Theorem … Continue reading

## The Second Incompleteness Theorem

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory … Continue reading

## The First Incompleteness Theorem

Some people are always critical of vague statements. I tend rather to be critical of precise statements; they are the only ones which can correctly be labeled ‘wrong’. –Raymond Smullyan At the dawn of the $20^{\text{th}}$-century formal mathematics flourished. In … Continue reading
