A~proof of the independence of the Axiom of Choice from the Boolean Prime Ideal Theorem

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolin. 56,4 (2015) 543-546.

Abstract:We present a~proof of the Boolean Prime Ideal Theorem in a~transitive model of ZF in which the Axiom of Choice does not hold. We omit the argument based on the full Halpern-L\"auchli partition theorem and instead we reduce the proof to its elementary case.

Keywords: Boolean Prime Ideal Theorem; the Axiom of Choice
