Hamburg Set Theory Workshop 2014 talk: Evasion of large cardinals.

Abstract: The evasion number e is a cardinal characteristic of the continuum introduced by Blass in connection with questions about homomorphisms of groups. However, the definition of e itself is very combinatorial, and generalises easily to larger cardinals. I will talk about lifting inequalities from the well-studied ω case up to a large cardinal κ, focusing especially on the consistency of e>b in this context. This is joint work with Jörg Brendle.
