Abstract.The partial ordering of Medvedev reducibility restricted to the family of Π01 classes is shown to be dense. For two disjoint computably enumerable sets, the class of separating sets is an important example of a Π01 class, which we call a ``c.e. separating class''. We show that there are no non-trivial meets for c.e. separating classes, but that the density theorem holds in the sublattice generated by the c.e. separating classes.
