Complementing cappable degrees in the difference hierarchy

Rod Downey, Angsheng Li, Guohua Wu
2004 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
Consequently, a computably enumerable degree is cappable if and only if it can be complemented by a nonzero d.c.e. degree. This gives a new characterization of the cappable degrees.  ...  We prove that for any computably enumerable (c.e.) degree c, if it is cappable in the computably enumerable degrees, then there is a d.c.e. degree d such that c ∪ d = 0 and c ∩ d = 0.  ...  We are mainly interested in the complements of the c.e. degrees in the Ershov hierarchy.  ...

In this paper, we study the c.e. predecessors of d.c.e. degrees, and prove that given a nonzero d.c.e. degree a, there is a c.e. degree b below a and a high d.c.e. degree d > b such that b bounds all the  ...  Wu, Isolation and the high/low hierarchy, Arch.

Degrees of Unsolvability [chapter]

We finish our history by quoting Gerald Sacks, who through his own work and the work of his students (including, Harrington, Robinson, Shore, Simpson, Slaman, and Thomason) shaped degree theory throughout  ...  Further n-CEA and ω-CEA operators are induced by the sets in the Ershov difference hierarchy or, to be more precise, by the corresponding operators as follows.  ...  Yates showed that not every incomplete degree is half of a minimal pair. In modern terminology, not every degree is cappable.  ...

The hierarchy also gives a number of natural definability results in the c.e. degrees, including a definable antichain.  ...  The hierarchy unifies and classifies the combinatorics of a number of diverse constructions in computability theory.  ...  Maximality in the new hierarchy Remarkably, it turns out that the hierarchy we introduced gives new noncontinuity results in the c.e. degrees.

However, it is a wtt-degree notion, and we show that it characterizes the degrees which satisfy a wtt-degree notion very close to the definition of superlow cuppability.  ...  Further, we study the strongly prompt c.e. sets in the context of other notions related promptness, superlowness, and cupping.  ...  We show that ω-c.e is the first place in the Ershov difference hierarchy where such a restriction on g makes sense.  ...
