Randomness and Solovay degrees
(with A. Nies and F. Stephan)
Journal of Logic and Analysis, Vol 10, pp.1–13, 2018.
We consider the behaviour of Schnorr randomness, a randomness notion weaker than Martin-L\”of’s, for left-r.e. reals under Solovay reducibility. Contrasting with results on Martin-L\”of-randomenss, we show that Schnorr randomness is not upward closed in the Solovay degrees. Next, some left-r.e. Schnorr random $\alpha$ is the sum of two left-r.e. reals that are far from random. We also show that the left-r.e. reals of effective dimension $>r$, for some rational $r$, form a filter in the Solovay degrees.
