Abstract: We show that supercompactness and strong compactness can be equivalent even as properties of pairs of regular cardinals. Specifically, we show that if ZFC + GCH is a given model (which in interesting cases contains instances of supercompactness), then there is some cardinal and cofinality preserving generic extension ZFC + GCH in which, (a) (preservation) for regular, if is supercompact'', then is supercompact'' and so that, (b) (equivalence) for regular, is strongly compact'' iff is supercompact'', except possibly if is a measurable limit of cardinals which are supercompact.
