In fact, this is one of the pieces of information contained in Kalikow’s formula (cf.

This section contains one of the central pieces of the whole proof of recurrence: We deform the Gibbs measure by changing η = 1/4 to the “more symmetric” value η = 0.

The above discussion indicates that one probably needs to impose some additional condition on the graph G to glue all these pieces together and to make the above stated properties equivalent.
Pseudo-random graphs
Indeed, it is enough to construct f! on IC r (X ) and after cutting X and Y into finitely many definable pieces, one may assume the above condition is verified.
