Set theory; forcing and large cardinals. Particularly as they relate to the universe of ordinal definable sets.
Large cardinal axioms posit the existence of infinities so large that they cannot be proven to exist from standard assumptions about mathematics. By working in models of the mathematical universe where we assume them to exist, we can draw additional conclusions that we would not have been able to see otherwise.
