Computable categoricity of trees of finite height
 Journal of Symbolic Logic
"... We characterize the structure of computably categorical trees of finite height, and prove that our criterion is both necessary and sufficient. Intuitively, the characterization is easiest to express in terms of isomorphisms of (possibly infinite) trees, but in fact it is equivalent to a Σ0 3conditi ..."

We characterize the structure of computably categorical trees of finite height, and prove that our criterion is both necessary and sufficient. Intuitively, the characterization is easiest to express in terms of isomorphisms of (possibly infinite) trees, but in fact it is equivalent to a Σ0 3condition. We show that all trees which are not computably categorical have computable dimension ω. Finally, we prove that for every n ≥ 1 in ω, there exists a computable tree of finite height which is ∆0 n+1categorical but not ∆0 ncategorical.

this article, we will focus on two areas of computable mathematics, namely computable algebra and combinatorics. The goal of this article is to present a number of open questions in both computable algebra and computable combinatorics and to give the reader a sense of the research activity in these elds. Our philosophy is to try to highlight questions, whose solutions we feel will either give insight into algebra or combinatorics, or will require new technology in the computabilitytheoretical techniques needed. A good historical example of the rst phenomenom is the word problem for nitely presented groups which needed the development of a great deal of group theoretical machinery for its solution by Novikov [110] and Boone [10]. A good example of the latter phenomenon is the recent solution by Coles, Downey and Slaman [17] of the question of whether all rank one torsion free 1991 Mathematics Subject Classi cation.

Computable trees, prime models, and relative decidability

"... We show that for every computable tree T with no dead ends and all paths computable, and every D>T ∅, there is a Dcomputable listing of the isolated paths of T. It follows that for every complete decidable theory T such that all the types of T are computable and every D>T ∅, there is a Ddecidable ..."

We show that for every computable tree T with no dead ends and all paths computable, and every D>T ∅, there is a Dcomputable listing of the isolated paths of T. It follows that for every complete decidable theory T such that all the types of T are computable and every D>T ∅, there is a Ddecidable prime model of T. This result extends a theorem of Csima and yields a stronger version of the theorem, due independently to Slaman and Wehner, that there is a structure with presentations of every nonzero degree but no computable presentation.

Fraïssé studied countable structures S through analysis of the age of S, i.e., the set of all finitely generated substructures of S. We investigate the effectiveness of his analysis, considering effectively presented lists of finitely generated structures and asking when such a list is the age of a computable structure. We focus particularly on the Fraïssé limit. We also show that degree spectra of relations on a sufficiently nice Fraïssé limit are always upward closed unless the relation is definable by a quantifierfree formula. We give some sufficient or necessary conditions for a Fraïssé limit to be spectrally universal. As an application, we prove that the computable atomless Boolean algebra is spectrally universal.

Abstract. We consider the notion of mass problem of presentability for countable structures, and study the relationship between Medvedev and Muchnik reducibilities on such problems and possible ways of syntactically characterizing these reducibilities. Also, we consider the notions of strong and weak presentability dimension and characterize classes of structures with presentability dimensions 1. 1 Basic notions and facts The main problem we consider in this paper is the relationship between presentations of countable structures on natural numbers and on admissible sets. Most of notations and terminology we use here are standard and corresponds to [4, 1, 13]. We denote the domains of a structures M, N,... by M, N..... For any arbitrary structure M the hereditary finite superstructure HF(M), which is the least admissible set containing the domain of M as a subset, enables us to study effective (computable) properties of M by means of computability theory for admissible sets. The exact definition is as follows: the hereditary finite

The computability properties of a relation R not included in the language of a computable structure A can vary from one computable presentation to another. We describe some classic results giving conditions on A or R that restrict the possible variations in the computable dimension of A (i.e. the number of isomorphic copies of A up to computable isomorphism) and the computational complexity of R. For example, what conditions guarantee that A is computably categorical (i.e. of dimension 1) or that R is intrinsically computable (i.e. computable in every presentation). In the absence of such conditions, we discuss the possible computable dimensions of A and variations (in terms of Turing degree) of R in different presentations (the degree spectrum of R). In particular, various classic theorems and more recent ones of the author, B. Khoussainov, D. Hirschfeldt and others about the possible degree spectra of computable relations on computable structures and the connections with ...
