The branch of mathematics concerned with set theory of the reals began with Cantor's work in abstract analysis and was continued by Hausdorff, Lebesgue, Sierpinksi, Luzin, Fraenkel, Zermelo, Rothberger, Gödel, and others. Today the most important research directions are based on the work of Paul Cohen on the size of the continuum. The central problem in this area is to understand the structure of the continuum when its size is at least \(\aleph _3\). It is still generally believed that the size of the continuum should be the guiding light for further research in set theory. This book presents the proceedings of a Winter Institute on "Set Theory of the Reals" held at Bar-Ilan University in January 1991. Containing mostly survey papers, the book provides an excellent account of present knowledge in this area and an outline for future research. Set Theory of the Reals is accessible to graduate students in set theory, abstract analysis, topology, measure theory, model theory, and logic.
