Strongly constructive Boolean algebras

  • P. E. Alaev


A computable structure is said to be n-constructive if there exists an algorithm which, given a finite ∑n-formula and a tuple of elements, determines whether that tuple satisfies this formula. A structure is strongly constructive if such an algorithm exists for all formulas of the predicate calculus, and is decidable if it has a strongly constructive isomorphic copy. We give a complete description of relations between n-constructibility and decidability for Boolean algebras of a fixed elementary characteristic.
