The Covering Property Axiom (CPA) arose in connection with the investigation of the iterated Sacks model, that is, the iterated perfect set model. Many interesting mathematical properties, especially those concerning real analysis, are known to be true in the Sacks model while they are false under the continuum hypothesis. Usually the proofs are very technical and involve heavy forcing machinery.

The authors have extracted a combinatorial principle that is true in the Sacks model and can be used to give simpler proofs. This principle, which is called CPA, is similar to Martin’s axiom. ... (Zentralblatt)
