“A Minimal Pair of K-degrees”

This week we will have a brief interlude and look at a proof for the existence of a minimal pair of K-degrees. This will include proving a lemma which states that we can construct a nondecreasing, unbounded function which can replace the constant in our definition of K- triviality, while still implying K-triviality.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
