Abstract : We study the polynomial-time semi-rankable sets (P-sr), the ranking analog of the P-selective sets. We prove that P-sr is a strict subset of the P-selective sets, and indeed that the two classes differ with respect to closure under complementation, closure under union with P sets, and closure under join with P sets. We also show that though P-sr falls between the P-rankable and the weakly-P-rankable sets in its inclusiveness, it equals neither of these classes.
