Fixpoints and relative precompleteness

Anton Golov, Sebastiaan A. Terwijn

We study relative precompleteness in the context of the theory of numberings, and relate this to a notion of lowness. We introduce a notion of divisibility for numberings, and use it to show that for the class of divisible numberings, lowness and relative precompleteness coincide with being computable. We also study the complexity of Skolem functions arising from Arslanov's completeness criterion with parameters. We show that for suitably divisible numberings, these Skolem functions have the maximal possible Turing degree. In particular this holds for the standard numberings of the partial computable functions and the c.e. sets.
