For every fixed-point expression e of alternation-depth r, we construct a new fixed-point expression e' of alternation-depth 2 and size . Expression e' is equivalent to e whenever operators are distributive and the underlying complete lattice has a co-continuous least upper bound. We alternation-depth but also w.r.t. the increase in size of the resulting expression.
