Woodin cardinal

In set theory, a Woodin cardinal (named for W. Hugh Woodin) is a cardinal number λ such that for all functions there exists a cardinal κ j(f)(κ) ⊆ M. An equivalent definition is this: λ is Woodin if and only if λ is strongly inaccessible and for all A \subseteq V_\lambda there exists a \lambda_A -A-strong.
