A Note on Effective Categoricity for Linear Orderings

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10185)


We study effective categoricity for linear orderings. For a computable structure \(\mathcal {S}\), the degree of categoricity of \(\mathcal {S}\) is the least Turing degree which is capable of computing isomorphisms among arbitrary computable copies of \(\mathcal {S}\).

We build new examples of degrees of categoricity for linear orderings. We show that for an infinite computable ordinal \(\alpha \), every Turing degree c.e. in and above \(\mathbf {0}^{(2\alpha + 2)}\) is the degree of categoricity for some linear ordering. We obtain similar results for linearly ordered abelian groups and decidable linear orderings.
