Limit complexities revisited

Laurent Bienvenu, Andrej Muchnik, Alexander Shen & Nikolay Veraschagin
The main goal of this paper is to put some known results in a common perspective and to simplify their proofs. We start with a simple proof of a result from (Vereshchagin, 2002) saying that $limsup_{nKS(x|n)$ (here $KS(x|n)$ is conditional (plain) Kolmogorov complexity of $x$ when $n$ is known) equals $KS^{mathbf{0'(x)$, the plain Kolmogorov complexity with $mathbf{0'$-oracle. Then we use the same argument to prove similar results for prefix complexity (and also improve results of...
