Title:Effective Randomness and Continuous Measures
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Theodore Slaman, University of California at Berkeley
Abstract:
We will discuss joint work with Jan Reimann in which we study the question, "For which infinite binary sequences X do there exist continuous measures for which X is effectively random?" We will show that for all but countably many X there is such a measure, but the proof has some unexpected meta-mathematical features.
