We define the bounded jump of A by Ab={xωix[φi(x)ΦxAφi(x)(x)]} and let Anb denote the nth bounded jump. We demonstrate several properties of the bounded jump, including the fact that it is strictly increasing and order-preserving on the bounded Turing (bT) degrees (also known as the weak truth-table degrees). We show that the bounded jump is related to the Ershov hierarchy. Indeed, for n2 we have XbTnbX is ωn-c.e. X1nb, extending the classical result that XbT'X is ω-c.e. Finally, we prove that the analogue of Shoenfield inversion holds for the bounded jump on the bounded Turing degrees. That is, for every X such that bbTXbT2b, there is a YbTb such that YbbTX.
