Abstract: We analyze the technique used by Adams and Kechris (2000) to obtain their results about Borel reducibility of countable Borel equivalence relations. Using this technique, we show that every equivalence relation is Borel reducible to the Borel bi-reducibility of countable Borel equivalence relations. We also apply the technique to two other classes of essentially uncountable Borel equivalence relations and derive analogous results for the classification problem of Borel automorphisms.
