Streszczenie

It was proved by Juhász and Weiss that for every ordinal α with ${0 < α < ω_2}$ there is a superatomic Boolean algebra of height α and width ω. We prove that if κ is an infinite cardinal such that $κ^{< κ} = κ$ and α is an ordinal such that $0 < α < κ^{++}$, then there is a cardinal-preserving partial order that forces the existence of a superatomic Boolean algebra of height α and width κ. Furthermore, iterating this forcing through all $α < κ^{++}$, we obtain a notion of forcing that preserves cardinals and such that in the corresponding generic extension there is a superatomic Boolean algebra of height α and width κ for every $α < κ^{++}$. Consistency for specific κ, like $ω_1$, then follows as a corollary.
