Abstract
We propose a hierarchy of classes of functions that corresponds to the hierarchy of randomness notions. Each class of functions converges at the corresponding random points. We give various characterizations of the classes, that is, characterizations via integral tests, L1-computability and layerwise computability. Furthermore, the relation among these classes is formulated using Solovay reducibility for lower semicomputable functions.

Proposition 2.3.
Let $\mu$ be a computable measure on a computable metric space.
Then there exists a computable sequence $\{r_n\}$ such that $\mu(\overline{B}(\alpha_i,r_j)\setminus B(\alpha_i, r_j))$ for all $i$ and $j$.

This statement should be the following.
Proposition 2.3.
Let $\mu$ be a computable measure on a computable metric space.
Then there exists a computable sequence $\{r_n\}$ such that
$\{ r_0,r_1, … \}$ is dense in the interval $(0 , \infty)$ and $\mu(\overline{B}(\alpha_i,r_j)\setminus B(\alpha_i, r_j))$ for all $i$ and $j$.

This problem was pointed out by K. Weihrauch on 19 Jan 2014. I appreciate his notice.

Abstract
We propose studying uniform Kurtz randomness, which is the uni- form relativization of Kurtz randomness. This notion has more natural properties than the usual relativization. For instance, van Lambalgen’s theorem holds for uniform Kurtz randomness while not for (the usual relativization of) Kurtz randomness. Another advantage is that lowness for uniform Kurtz randomness has many characterizations, such as those via complexity, martingales, Kurtz tt-traceability, and Kurtz dimensional measure.
