I have finished the paper I have referred to for the upcoming Putnam
Volume edited by Cook and Hellman which should come out in 2018. See

92. Concrete Mathematical Incompleteness: Basic Emulation Theory, July
1, 2017, 78 pages. Submitted to the Putnam Volume, ed. Cook, Hellman.

There have been far too many major advances in this for me to discuss
them here - I think this paper is particularly clear. Let me know what
you think.
The paper lays out carefully Basic Emulation Theory, which is by no
means anything like the full Emulation Theory. It includes only the
forward directions of Emulation Theory on the one site Q[0,1] =
(Q[0,1],<). In addition to lots of thematic material, there is a
considerable discussion of finite relations, where things are provable
in RCA_0 and ACA', according to the situation, and already highly
nontrivial. Then I move to six statements that are provably equivalent
to Con(SRP). I prove them from Con(SRP) in the paper. The reversals
will appear in the book which I will try to finish in 2018, on
Concrete Mathematical Incompleteness, which includes the 800 page sub
book on BRT = Boolean Relation Theory. So the comprehensive book
should be 1500-2000 pages.
What is not in this paper on Basic Emulation Theory is as follows.
1. Finite Emulation Theory. This concerns the explicitly finite and
explicitly Pi01 forms. There seems to be emerging breakthroughs in
this which, if materializing, I will report on on the FOM soon. The
plan is for the explicitly finite and explicitly Pi01 forms to be so
good that they actually compete with the existing implicitly Pi01
forms in the current Putnam Volume paper.
2. Extended Emulation Theory. Here is where I develop the theory on
(Q,<), and also use some variants of maximal emulators. Step maximal
emulators and Greedy emulators and the like. Also lines and boxes.
3. Extreme Emulation Theory. This is where I develop the theory in the
direction that is equivalent to the consistency of HUGE cardinals, and
possibly more. Uses ideas from 2.
4. Extreme Finite Emulation Theory. This combines 1 and 3. Uses ideas from 2.
Reversals are extremely delicate, especially if I want good
information about low dimensions. If I am successful in dealing with
low dimensions that could amount to several hundred additional pages,
and perhaps be delayed beyond the book.
