Science contains descriptions of the realm we are living in. It additionally relies on nature showing what we will be able to most sensible describe as a excessive aLgorithmic content material. The subject working via this choice of papers is that of the interplay among descriptions, within the kind of formal theories, and the algorithmic content material of what's defined, particularly of the types of these theories. This seems to be so much explicitly the following in a couple of invaluable, and tremendous, contributions to what has till lately been referred to as 'recursive version concept' - a space during which researchers from the previous Soviet Union (in specific Novosibirsk) were pre-eminent. There also are articles all for the computability of points of primary mathematical buildings, and - a go back to one of these easy underlying questions thought of by means of Alan Turing within the early days of the topic - an editorial giving a brand new point of view on computability within the genuine international. And, after all, there also are articles keen on the classical concept of computability, together with the 1st greatly on hand survey of labor on quasi-reducibility. The participants, all the world over recognized specialists of their fields, were linked to the three-year INTAS-RFBR learn undertaking "Com­ putability and types" (Project No. 972-139), and such a lot have participated in a single or extra of some of the overseas workshops (in Novosibirsk, Heidelberg and Almaty) and otherresearch actions of the network.

2) => (3). To show the Uniform Fixed Point property (3), by the s~­ Theorem let f be a computable function such that 'Pf(e) (x) = 'Pe('Px(x)) for all e, x, and by (2) let h be a computable function such that for every e 'Ph(e) is total and for every x, 'Pf(e)(x) l=> a('Ph(e)(X)) = a('Pf(e)(x)). Define g(e) = 'Ph(e)(h(e)) for all e. It is easy to see that if 'Pe(g(e)) 1 then a(g(e)) = a('Pe(g(e))). (3) => (1). Let 9 be a computable function such that for every e, 'Pe(g(e)) l=> a(g(e)) = a('Pe(g(e))).

F, otherwise. is the desired number. Using this, given any m one can uniformly enumerate D an infinite set X of numbers such that /I( m) = /I( n) for every n EX. 22 COMPUTABILITY AND MODELS Finally, the degrees of complete numberings satisfy a distinguished structural property in both the semi lattices L(A) and R~+l (A). 3. A numbering a E Num(A) is calledsplittableifitis equivalent to the join of some pair of incomparable numberings of subfamilies of A. Likewise a is called X - splittable if it is X-equivalent to the join of some pair of numberings of subfamilies of A that are incomparable with respect to ~x.

Define g(e) = 'Ph(e)(h(e)) for all e. It is easy to see that if 'Pe(g(e)) 1 then a(g(e)) = a('Pe(g(e))). (3) => (1). Let 9 be a computable function such that for every e, 'Pe(g(e)) l=> a(g(e)) = a('Pe(g(e))). For a given partial computable function 'P, define the function 'l/J(x, y), 'l/J(x, y) = {'P(X) i 'P(~) if 1, otherwIse. By the s~- Theorem there exists a computable function f such that 'Pf(x) = >"y'l/J(x, y), for all x. It is easy to verify that the computable function go f aextends the partial function 'P.
