    Abstract. We find a characterization of the covering number cov(R), of the real line in terms of trees. We also show that the cofinality of coy(R) is greater than or equal to n[sub lambda] for every lambda is an element of cov(R), where n[sub lambda] is greater than or equal to add(L) (add(L)...
