Life[edit]

He was educated at "Charles University (his advior was "Petr Vopěnka) and is now at the Institute of Mathematics of the "Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

Work[edit]

Jech's research also includes "mathematical logic, "algebra, "analysis, "topology and "measure theory.

Jech gave the first published proof of the consistency of the existence of a "Suslin line. With Karel Prikry, he introduced the notion of precipitous ideal. He gave several models where "AC failed, for example one with ω1 "measurable. The concept of a "Jech–Kunen tree is named after him and "Kenneth Kunen.
