Title: Some Minimality Problems


  It is well known that forcing with partial orders whose conditions
  are trees or tree-like objects defined on omega generates a minimal
  degree of constructibility. We will discuss the generation of
  minimal degrees of constructibility via trees defined over
  uncountable cardinals, and the problem of consistent initial
  segments of the constructible degrees.
