# Relative primeness and Borel partition properties for equivalence relations

@article{Clemens2020RelativePA, title={Relative primeness and Borel partition properties for equivalence relations}, author={John D. Clemens}, journal={Transactions of the American Mathematical Society}, year={2020} }

We introduce a notion of relative primeness for equivalence relations, strengthening the notion of non-reducibility, and show for many standard benchmark equivalence relations that non-reducibility may be strengthened to relative primeness. We introduce several analogues of cardinal properties for Borel equivalence relations, including the notion of a prime equivalence relation and Borel partition properties on quotient spaces. In particular, we introduce a notion of Borel weak compactness, and…
