Solovay reducibility and continuity

Masahiro Kumabe, Kenshi Miyabe, Yuki Mizusawa, Toshio Suzuki


The objective of this study is a better understandingof the relationships between reduction and continuity. Solovay reduction is a variation of Turing reduction based on the distance of two real numbers. We characterize Solovay reduction by the existence of a certain real function that is computable (in the sense of computable analysis) and Lipschitz continuous. We ask whether there
exists a reducibility concept that corresponds to H¨older continuity. The answer is affirmative. We introduce quasi Solovay reduction and characterize this new reduction via H¨older continuity. In addition, we separate it from Solovay reduction and Turing reduction and investigate the relationships between complete sets and partial randomness.
