Dear FOM members,
Concerning the following statement taken from [1]:
if you take set theory and you do not allow generic then obviously the
> continuum hypothesis is true, but if you allow generic, then obviously it
> is not true.
I would like to ask the following questions:
1) What does it mean generic in this setting?
2) Is there a formal definition of generic?
3) Which option, between allowing and not allowing generic, does mainstream
mathematicians prefer concerning set theory?
Kind regards,
Jose M.
