Abstract

We show that Tarski’s concept of cardinal algebra appears naturally in the context of the current theory of Borel equivalence relations. As a result one can apply Tarski’s theory to discover a number of interesting laws governing the structure of Borel equivalence relations, which, in retrospect rather surprisingly, have not been realized before.
