Dichotomy Theorems for Families of Non-Cofinal Essential Complexity
We prove that for every Borel equivalence relation E, either E is Borel reducible to ��0, or the family of Borel equivalence relations incompatible with E has cofinal essential complexity. It follows that if F is a Borel equivalence relation and ℱ is a family of Borel equivalence relations of non-cofinal essential complexity which together satisfy the dichotomy that for every Borel equivalence relation E, either E ∈ ℱ or F is Borel reducible to E, then ℱ consists solely of smooth equivalence relations, thus the dichotomy is equivalent to a known theorem.
