In this paper we study a reducibility that has been introduced by Klaus Weihrauch or, more precisely, a natural extension of this reducibility for multivalued functions on represented spaces. We call the corresponding equivalence classes Weihrauch degrees and we show that the corresponding partial order induces a lower semilattice with the disjoint union of multivalued functions as greatest lower bound operation. We show that parallelization is a closure operator for this semilattice and the parallelized Weihrauch degrees even form a lattice with the product of multivalued functions as greatest lower bound operation. We show that the Medvedev lattice and hence the Turing upper semilattice can both be embedded into the parallelized Weihrauch lattice in a natural way. The importance of Weihrauch degrees is based on the fact that multivalued functions on represented spaces can be considered as realizers of mathematical theorems in a very natural way and studying the Weihrauch reductions between theorems in this sense means

In this paper we study a new approach to classify mathematical theorems according to their computational content. Basically, we are asking the question which theorems can be continuously or computably transferred into each other? For this purpose theorems are considered via their realizers which are operations with certain input and output data. The technical tool to express continuous or computable relations between such operations is Weihrauch reducibility and the partially ordered degree structure induced by it. We have identified certain choice principles on closed sets which are cornerstones among Weihrauch degrees and it turns out that certain core theorems in analysis can be classified naturally in this structure. In particular, we study theorems such as the Intermediate Value Theorem, the Baire Category Theorem, the Banach Inverse Mapping Theorem, the Closed Graph Theorem and the Uniform Boundedness Theorem. Wellknown omniscience principles from constructive mathematics such as LPO and LLPO can also naturally be considered as Weihrauch degrees and they play an important role in our classification. Our classification scheme does not require any particular logical framework or axiomatic setting, but it can be carried out in the framework of classical mathematics using tools of topology, computability theory and computable analysis. Finally, we present a number of metatheorems that allow to derive upper bounds for the classification of the Weihrauch degree of many theorems and we discuss the Brouwer Fixed Point Theorem as an example.

Abstract. We determine the computational complexity of the HahnBanach Extension Theorem. To do so, we investigate some basic connections between reverse mathematics and computable analysis. In particular, we use Weak König’s Lemma within the framework of computable analysis to classify incomputable functions of low complexity. By defining the multivalued function Sep and a natural notion of reducibility for multivalued functions, we obtain a computational counterpart of the subsystem of second order arithmetic WKL0. We study analogies and differences between WKL0 and the class of Sepcomputable multivalued functions. Extending work of Brattka, we show that a natural multivalued function associated with the HahnBanach Extension Theorem is Sepcomplete. 1.

Continuous reducibilities are a proven tool in computable analysis, and have applications in other fields such as constructive mathematics or reverse mathematics. We study the ordertheoretic properties of several variants of the two most important definitions, and especially introduce suprema for them. The suprema are shown to commutate with several characteristic numbers. 1

Singular Coverings and NonUniform Notions of Closed Set Computability

Abstract. The empty set of course contains no computable point. On the other hand, surprising results due to Zaslavskiĭ, Tseĭtin, Kreisel, and Lacombe assert the existence of nonempty cor.e. closed sets devoid of computable points: sets which are even ‘large ’ in the sense of positive Lebesgue measure. We observe that a certain size is in fact necessary: every nonempty cor.e. closed real set without computable points has continuum cardinality. This initiates a comparison of different notions of computability for closed real subsets nonuniformly like, e.g., for sets of fixed cardinality or sets containing a (not necessarily effectively findable) computable point. By relativization we obtain a bounded recursive rational sequence of which every accumulation point is not even computable with support of a Halting oracle. Finally the question is treated whether compact sets have cor.e. closed connected components; and every starshaped cor.e. closed set is asserted to contain a computable point. 1
Real Computation with Least Discrete Advice: A Complexity Theory of Nonuniform Computability

It is folklore particularly in numerical and computer sciences that, instead of solving some general problem f: A → B, additional structural information about the input x ∈ A (that is any kind of promise that x belongs to a certain subset A ′ ⊆ A) should be taken advantage of.

It is folklore particularly in numerical and computer sciences that, instead of solving some general problem f: A → B, additional structural information about the input x ∈ A (that is any kind of promise that x belongs to a certain subset A ′ ⊆ A) should be taken advantage of. Some examples from real number computation show that such discrete advice can even make the difference between computability and uncomputability. We turn this into a both topological and combinatorial complexity theory of information, investigating for several practical problems how much advice is necessary and sufficient to render them computable. Specifically, finding a nontrivial solution to a homogeneous linear equation A · x = 0 for a given singular real n × nmatrix A is possible when knowing rank(A) ∈ {0, 1,..., n−1}; and we show this to be best possible. Similarly, diagonalizing (i.e. finding a basis of eigenvectors of) a given real symmetric n × nmatrix A is possible when knowing the number of distinct eigenvalues: an integer between 1 and n (the latter corresponding to the nondegenerate case). And again we show that n–fold (i.e. roughly log n bits of) additional information is indeed necessary in order to render this problem (continuous and) computable; whereas finding some single eigenvector of A requires and suffices with Θ(log n)–fold advice.

We investigate the degree of discontinuity of several solution concepts from noncooperative game theory. While the consideration of Nash equilibria forms the core of our work, also pure and correlated equilibria are dealt with. Formally, we restrict the treatment to two player games, but results and proofs extend to the nplayer case. As a side result, the degree of discontinuity of solving systems of linear inequalities is settled.

Abstract. We investigate a hierarchy of representations of topological spaces by measurable functions that extends the traditional notion of admissible representations common to computable analysis. Specific instances of these representations already occur in the literature (for example, the naive Cauchy representation of the reals and the “jump ” of a representation), and have been used in investigating the computational properties of discontinuous functions. Our main contribution is the integration of a recently developing descriptive set theory for nonmetrizable spaces that allows many previous results to generalize to arbitrary countably based T0 topological spaces. In addition, for a class of topological spaces that include the reals (with the Euclidean topology) and the power set of ω (with the Scotttopology), we give a complete characterization of the functions that are (topologically) realizable with respect to the level of the representations of the domain and codomain spaces. 1
