Abstract: Among the Ramsey-type hierarchies, namely, Ramsey’s theorem, the free set, the thin set and the rainbow Ramsey theorem, only Ramsey’s theorem is known to collapse in reverse mathematics. A promising approach to show the strictness of the hierarchies would be to prove that every computable instance at level n has a lown solution. In particular, this requires effective control of iterations of the Turing jump. In this paper, we design some variants of Mathias forcing to construct solutions to cohesiveness, the Erdős–Moser theorem and stable Ramsey’s theorem for pairs, while controlling their iterated jumps. For this, we define forcing relations which, unlike Mathias forcing, have the same definitional complexity as the formulas they force. This analysis enables us to answer two questions of Wei Wang, namely, whether cohesiveness and the Erdős–Moser theorem admit preservation of the arithmetic hierarchy, and can be seen as a step towards the resolution of the strictness of the Ramsey-type hierarchies.
