I see. Speaking of partitions, do you know of a readable introduction to the partition calculus? I read a bit in Mary Ellen Rudin's notes, but found her writing a bit too casual for my taste (and beginner status).

Q: Introduction to Infinitary Combinatorics

Austin MohrWhat are some good texts for someone interested in becoming acquainted with the "big ideas" of infinitary combinatorics? If you'd like more specificity, assume the reader has respectable mathematical maturity and a working knowledge of finitary combinatorics and set theory.

Michael, bu Rudin's notes you meant "Mary Ellen Rudin: Lectures on Set Theoretic Topology"? AFAIK this is rather tough book to read. I was told that it covers interesting topics, but probably it is probably not suitable as an introduction.
