Title:Separating notions of randomness
Seminar:Logic Seminar
Speaker:Bart Kastermans, University of Wisconsin, Madison
Abstract:
We will introduce the ideas surrounding some notions of effective randomness; different attempts at answering the question of when a real is a random real. Then we'll explain the question of the classification of these different notions of randomness, and finally indicate how we recently obtained a separation result (showing that Martin-Lof random and permutation random are distinct).
