The argument we have given is not quite optimal, since by means of a trick one can show that in the situation we considered K is actually K -supercompact in V [ G ] . The same trick would yield our conclusion that K is measurable in V [ G ] from the weaker assumption that K is K -supercompact in V. Since 33 the trick tends to obscure the important ideas, however, we have omitted it. 34 7. Axiom A forcing. In this section we consider a type of iteration which covers a great number of cases arising in practice.

Suppose I = {p : a e OJ } is a pairwise incompatible set. Without loss of generality we may assume |p | = n for all a € OJ.. , and that n is minimal; also that domain (p ) n domain(pD) = 0 a p when a =j= 3 • Also, by thinning out I if necessary, we may assume that whenever a < 3> p (s) = p (t) , s =|= t and s and t are compact p rable (which must happen for some s and t if p and p are ina p compatible) then s < t. Let U be a uniform ultrafilter on OJ. ,s _-, } • Now for each a there must be i (a) , j (a) < n such that { 3 e OJ, : s .

So p € G implies j(p) e G . Define j as follows. If x 6 V. then there is some "term x •VTGI * . MTG'1 * such that x = x . Let j (x) = j(x) . We claim j is elementary. ,x Suppose V.. \= (f) (x , . ,x ) .
