Number of Ultrafilters
Posted:

Let S be an infinite set with cardinality kappa.
If F is an ultrafilter for S, then F = 2^kappa. That's proven by using the bijection f:F > P(S)\F, A > S\A.
If F is a filter for S, then F subset P(S) and the collection of filters for S is a subset of P(P(S)).
How would one prove, the number of ultrafilters is exactly 2^2^kappa?
