Streszczenie

Let $\chi$ be the minimum cardinality of a subset of ${}^\omega 2$ that cannot be made convergent by multiplication with a single Toeplitz matrix. By an application of a creature forcing we show that ${\frak s} < \chi$ is consistent. We thus answer a question by Vojtáš. We give two kinds of models for the strict inequality. The first is the combination of an $\aleph _2$-iteration of some proper forcing with adding $\aleph _1$ random reals. The second kind of models is obtained by adding $\delta$ random reals to a model of ${\rm MA}_{<\kappa }$ for some $\delta \in [\aleph _1,\kappa )$. It was a conjecture of Blass that ${\frak s}=\aleph _1 < \chi = \kappa$ holds in such a model. For the analysis of the second model we again use the creature forcing from the first model.
