Infinite powers and Cohen reals
We give a consistent example of a zero-dimensional separable metrizable space $Z$ such that every homeomorphism of $Z^\omega$ acts like a permutation of the coordinates almost everywhere. Furthermore, this permutation varies continuously. This shows that a result of Dow and Pearl is sharp, and gives some insight into an open problem of Terada. Our example $Z$ is simply the set of $\omega_1$ Cohen reals, viewed as a subspace of $2^\omega$.

On the Hereditary Paracompactness of Locally Compact, Hereditarily Normal Spaces
We establish that if it is consistent that there is a supercompact cardinal, then it is consistent that every locally compact, hereditarily normal space which does not include a perfect pre-image of $\omega_1$ is hereditarily paracompact.

Keywords:locally compact, hereditarily normal, paracompact, Axiom R, PFA$^{++}$

A Note on Conjectures of F. Galvin and R. Rado
In 1968, Galvin conjectured that an uncountable poset $P$ is the union of countably many chains if and only if this is true for every subposet $Q \subseteq P$ with size $\aleph_1$. In 1981, Rado formulated a similar conjecture that an uncountable interval graph $G$ is countably chromatic if and only if this is true for every induced subgraph $H \subseteq G$ with size $\aleph_1$. Todorčević has shown that Rado's Conjecture is consistent relative to the existence of a supercompact cardinal, while the consistency of Galvin's Conjecture remains open. In this paper, we survey and collect a variety of results related to these two conjectures. We also show that the extension of Rado's conjecture to the class of all chordal graphs is relatively consistent with the existence of a supercompact cardinal.

Keywords:Galvin conjecture, Rado conjecture, perfect graph, comparability graph, chordal graph, clique-cover number, chromatic number

Dow, Alan
Sequential Order Under PFA
It is shown that it follows from PFA that there is no compact scattered space of height greater than $\omega$ in which the sequential order and the scattering heights coincide.

Keywords:sequential order, scattered spaces, PFA

Chasing Silver
We show that limits of CS iterations of the $n$-Silver forcing notion have the $n$-localization property.

Keywords:$n$-localization property, the Silver forcing, CS iterations

Brendle, Jörg
Dow's Principle and $Q$-Sets
A $Q$-set is a set of reals every subset of which is a relative $G_\delta$. We investigate the combinatorics of $Q$-sets and discuss a question of Miller and Zhou on the size $\qq$ of the smallest set of reals which is not a $Q$-set. We show in particular that various natural lower bounds for $\qq$ are consistently strictly smaller than $\qq$.

Keywords:$Q$-set, cardinal invariants of the continuum, pseudointersection number, $\MA$($\sigma$-centered), Dow's principle, almost disjoint family, almost disjointness principle, iterated forcing
