On Oscillation-Free Chaitin h-Random Sequences

  • Ludwig Staiger
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7160)


The present paper generalises results by Tadaki [12] and Calude et al. [1] on oscillation-free partially random infinite strings. Moreover, it shows that oscillation-free partial Chaitin randomness can be separated from oscillation-free partial strong Martin-Löf randomness by \(\Pi_{1}^{0}\)-definable sets of infinite strings.
