Abstract
We investigate the question of whether one can characterize complexity classes
(such as PSPACE or NEXP) in terms of efficient reducibility to the set of Kolmogorov-
random strings RC. This question arises because PSPACE PRC
and NEXP
NPRC
, and no larger complexity classes are known to be reducible to RC in this
way. We show that this question cannot be posed without explicitly dealing with
