The Church Problem for Countable Ordinals

Alexander Rabinovich, Wolfgang Thomas
2009 Logical Methods in Computer Science  
We consider a natural generalization of the Church problem to countable ordinals and investigate games of arbitrary countable length.  ...  We prove that determinacy and decidability parts of the Bu}chi and Landweber theorem hold for all countable ordinals and that its full extension holds for all ordinals < \omega\^\omega.  ...  Acknowledgments I am very grateful to Amit Shomrat for his insightful comments.  ...

Synthesis of Finite-state and Definable Winning Strategies

Alexander Rabinovich, Marc Herbstritt
2009 Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science  
We consider two natural generalizations of the Church problem to countable ordinals: the first deals with finite-state strategies; the second deals with MLO-definable strategies.  ...  We investigate games of arbitrary countable length and prove the computability of these generalizations of Church's problem.  ...  Acknowledgments I am very grateful to Amit Shomrat for his insightful comments.  ...

Orders, reduction graphs and spectra

B. Intrigila, M.Venturini Zilli
1999 Theoretical Computer Science  
For well-ordered spectra, we show that they can represent all countable successor ordinals.  ...  Then, considering constructive ordinals, we address the well-known problem of knowing which ordinals are lambda representable (that is for which ordinal CL there exists a lambda term T such that a is isomorphic  ...  We thank Stefano Sorgi and Ivan0 Salvo for drawing the illustrations.  ...

On Turing's legacy in mathematical logic and the foundations of mathematics

Joan Bagaria
2013 Arbor: Ciencia, Pensamiento y Cultura  
The Church-Kleene system O of ordinal notations: The number 1 is a notation for the ordinal 0, 2 a is a notation for the successor of |a| and 3 . 5 e is a notation for the supremum of the sequence |an|  ...  But for T α to be effectively given, the ordinal α must be computable. This leads to the notion of ordinal notations, i.e., a computable way to assign countable ordinals to natural numbers.  ...

On the questions P ?= NP ∩ co-NP and NP ?= co-NP for infinite time Turing machines [article]

Vinay Deolalikar
2003 arXiv   pre-print
Schindler recently addressed two versions of the question P ?= NP for Turing machines running in transfinite ordinal time. These versions differ in their definition of input length.  ...  The corresponding complexity classes are labelled P, NP and P^+, NP^+. Schindler showed that P ≠ NP and P^+ ≠ NP^+.  ...  INTRODUCTION The fundamental open problems in complexity theory for Turing ma- versions of the classes P and NP in a Turing machine running in transfinite ordinal time.  ...

Cantor's Proof in the Full Definable Universe

Laureano Luna, William Taylor
2010 The Australasian Journal of Logic  
all objects that can be defined not just in one formal language but by means of the full expressive power of natural language: this universe seems to be countable on one account and uncountable on another  ...  Cantor's proof that the powerset of the set of all natural numbers is uncountable yields a version of Richard's paradox when restricted to the full definable universe, that is, to the universe containing  ...  it from below, then, under the Church-Turing thesis, only the Church-Kleene constructive ordinals would exist in the definable universe and the first Church-Kleene non-constructive ordinal ω CK 1 would  ...

Ordinal Recursion Theory [article]

Chi Tat Chong, Sy D. Friedman
1996 arXiv   pre-print
In this article, intended for the Handbook of Recursion Theory, we survey recursion theory on the ordinal numbers, with sections devoted to α-recursion theory, β-recursion theory and the study of the admissibility  ...  This view is supported by the successful solution of Post's problem for all admissible ordinals (Theorem 2 below). We give here some examples of admissible ordinals: (a) α = ω, the classical case.  ...  But this contradicts the well-ordering of ordinals. This proves the claim. It follows from the claim that κ 2 and hence α * 2 is countable. We conclude that α is countable.  ...

Decreasing Diagrams with Two Labels Are Complete for Confluence of Countable Systems

Jörg Endrullis, Jan Willem Klop, Roy Overbeek, Michael Wagner
2018 International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications  
The decreasing diagrams technique is one of the strongest and most versatile methods for proving confluence of abstract reduction systems, it is complete for countable systems, and it has many well-known  ...  Surprisingly, we find that two labels suffice for proving confluence for every abstract rewrite system having the cofinality property, thus in particular for every confluent, countable system.  ...  Finally, we are thankful to the reviewers for many useful suggestions.  ...

Indefinite Extensibility in Natural Language
