Cofinal Indiscernibles and some Applications to New Foundations

Journal Article


We prove a theorem about models with indiscernibles that are cofinal in a given linear order. We apply this theorem to obtain new independence results for Quine's set theory New Foundations, thus solving two open problems in this field.
