Given a cardinal k, we define F using a natural order structure on k. We characterize balleans up to coarse equivalence, give the criterions of metrizability and cellularity, calculate the basic cardinal invariant of these balleans. We conclude the paper with discussion of some special ultrafilters on cardinal balleans.}, number={2}, journal={Applied General Topology}, author={Petrenko, Oleksandr and Protasov, Igor V. and Slobodianiuk, Sergii}, year={2014}, month={Jul.}, pages={137–146} }
