Set Theory Seminar - Gabriel Fernandes (BIU): Local core models with more Woodin cardinals

Abstract: We combine a technique of Steel with one due to Jensen and Steel to
obtain a core model below singular cardinals kappa which are
sufficiently closed under the beth function, assuming that there is no
premouse of height kappa with unboundedly many Woodin cardinals.
The motivation for isolating such core model is computing a lower bound for the strength of
the theory: T = ''ZFC + there is a singular cardinal kappa such that the set of ordinals below kappa where GCH holds is stationary and co-stationary''.
We can apply to the above core model a technique of Gitik, Schindler and Shelah that was used to obtain a lower bound for the strength of T.
