On the Relationship between the Partition Property and the Weak Partition Property for Normal Ultrafilters on $P_\kappa\lambda^1$
Suppose $\kappa$ is a supercompact cardinal and $\lambda > \kappa$. We study the relationship between the partition property and the weak partition property for normal ultrafilters on $P_\kappa\lambda$. On the one hand, we show that the following statement is consistent, given an appropriate large cardinal assumption: The partition property and the weak partition property are equivalent, there are many normal ultrafilters that satisfy these properties, and there are many normal ultrafilters that do not satisfy these properties. On the other hand, we consider the assumption that, for some $\lambda > \kappa$, there exists a normal ultrafilter $U$ on $P_\kappa\lambda$ such that $U$ satisfies the weak partition property but does not satisfy the partition property. We show that this assumption is implied by the assertion that there exists a cardinal $\gamma > \kappa$ such that $\gamma$ is $\gamma^+$-supercompact, and, assuming the GCH, it implies the assertion that there exists a cardinal $\gamma > \kappa$ such that $\gamma$ is a measurable cardinal with a normal ultrafilter concentrating on measurable cardinals.
