This paper presents some new theorems concerning recursively enumerable (r.e.) sets. The aim of the paper is to advance the search for a decision procedure for the elementary theory of r.e. sets. More precisely, an effective method is sought for deciding whether or not an arbitrary sentence formulated in the lower predicate calculus with sole relative… (More)
