Good and OK ultrafilters. (English, English) Zbl 0532.54021
We extend Kunen’s construction of \(\alpha^+\)-good ultrafilters on \({\mathcal P}(\alpha)\) to more general algebras as well as the construction of \(\alpha^+\)-OK ultrafilters. In so doing, we prove the existence of \(2^{\alpha}\times \alpha^+\)-independent matrices, as defined by Kunen, in these algebras. Some of the topolological properties of the Stone space of these algebras are then investigated. We find points, for example in \(U(\alpha)\) which can be regarded as a generalization of weak P-points.
