Title: Kolmogorov Complexity and 1-Random Reals, part 2


This talk is a continuation of the talk that I gave on October 29.
After a brief review of the results presented there, I will show that
several definitions of 1-randomness are equivalent.  Two of these
definitions are measure-theoretic, while the other are based on
Kolmogorov complexity.  I will also discuss additional properties of
the (self-delimiting) Kolmogorov Complexity H not covered in Part I,
including the maximum complexity of a string of length n.
