Generalized r-cohesiveness and the arithmetical hierarchy: A correction to “Generalized cohesiveness”. (English) Zbl 1011.03033
The paper under review is connected with the authors’ paper “Generalized cohesiveness” [J. Symb. Log. 64, 489-516 (1999; Zbl 0935.03050)]. The main result of the present paper for \(n = 2\) refutes a result previously claimed by the authors, and for \(n \geq 3\) answers a question raised in the mentioned paper. To explain the result, let, for \(X \subseteq \omega\), \([X^n]\) denote the class of all subsets of \(X\). An infinite set \(A \subseteq \omega\) is called \(n\)-r-cohesive iff for each computable function \(f: [\omega]^{n} \rightarrow \{ 0,1 \}\) there is a finite set \(F\) such that \(f\) is constant on \([A- f^n]\). It is shown that for each \(n \geq 2\) there is no \(\Pi_{n}^{0}\) set \(A \subseteq \omega\) which is \(n\)-r-cohesive.
