Projective absoluteness for Sacks forcing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that ∑1/3-absoluteness for Sacks forcing is equivalent to the non-existence δ1/2 of a Bernstein set. We also show that Sacks forcing is the weakest forcing notion among all of the preorders that add a new real with respect to ∑1/3 forcing absoluteness.
