Abstract. We provide an overview of theories of continuous time computation. These theories allow us to understand both the hardness of questions related to continuous time dynamical systems and the computational power of continuous time analog models. We survey the existing models, summarizing results, and point to relevant references in the literature. 1
The general purpose analog computer and computable analysis are two equivalent paradigms of analog computation

Abstract. In this paper we revisit one of the first models of analog computation, Shannon’s General Purpose Analog Computer (GPAC). The GPAC has often been argued to be weaker than computable analysis. As main contribution, we show that if we change the notion of GPACcomputability in a natural way, we compute exactly all real computable functions (in the sense of computable analysis). Moreover, since GPACs are equivalent to systems of polynomial differential equations then we show that all real computable functions can be defined by such models. 1

The basic motivation behind this work is to tie together various computational complexity classes, whether over different domains such as the naturals or the reals, or whether defined in different manners, via function algebras (Real Recursive Functions) or via Turing Machines (Computable Analysis). We provide general tools for investigating these issues, using two techniques we call approximation and lifting. We use these methods to obtain two main theorems. First we provide an alternative proof of the result from Campagnolo, Moore and Costa [3], which precisely relates the Kalmar elementary computable functions to a function algebra over the reals. Secondly, we build on that result to extend a result of Bournez and Hainry [1], which provided a function algebra for the C 2 real elementary computable functions; our result does not require the restriction to C 2 functions. In addition to the extension, we provide an alternative approach to the proof. Their proof involves simulating the operation of a Turing Machine using a function algebra. We avoid this simulation, using a technique we call lifting, which allows us to lift the classic result regarding the elementary computable functions to a result on the reals. The two new techniques bring a different perspective to these problems, and furthermore appear more easily applicable to other problems of this sort.

not be interpreted as representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of any sponsoring institution or government. Keywords: Proof theory, differential equations, differential cut elimination, logics of programs, The biggest challenge in hybrid systems verification is the handling of differential equations. Because computable closedform solutions only exist for very simple differential equations, proof certificates have been proposed for more scalable verification. Search procedures for these proof certificates are still rather adhoc, though, because the problem structure is only understood poorly. We investigate differential invariants, which can be checked for invariance along a differential equation just by using their differential structure and without having to solve the differential equation. We study the structural properties of differential invariants. To analyze tradeoffs for proof search complexity, we identify more than a dozen relations between several classes of differential invariants and compare their deductive power. As our main results, we analyze the deductive power of differential cuts and the deductive power of differential invariants with auxiliary differential variables. We refute the differential cut elimination hypothesis and show that differential cuts are fundamental proof principles that strictly increase the deductive power. We also prove that

The functions of Computable Analysis are defined by enhancing the capacities of normal Turing Machines to deal with real number inputs. We consider characterizations of these functions using function algebras, known as Real Recursive Functions. Bournez and Hainry 2006 [5] used a function algebra to characterize the twice continuously differentiable functions of Computable Analysis, restricted to certain compact domains. In a similar model, Shannon’s General Purpose Analog Computer, Bournez et. al. 2007 [3] also characterize the functions of Computable Analysis. We combine the results of [5] and Graça et. al. [13], to show that a different function algebra also yields Computable Analysis. We believe that our function algebra is an improvement due to its simple definition and because the operations in our algebra are less obviously designed to mimic the operations in the usual definition of the recursive functions using the primitive recursion and minimization operators. 1

Abstract—It is by reason of the unified measure of varieties of resources and the unified processing of the disposal of varieties of resources, that these closely related three of new basic models called the resources assembled node and the disposition integrated node as well as the intelligent organizing node are put forth in this paper; the three closely related quantities of integrative analytical mechanics including the disposal intensity and disposal weighted intensity as well as the charge of resource charge are set; and then the resources assembled space and the disposition integrated space as well as the intelligent organizing space are put forth. The system of fundamental equations and model of complete factor synergetics is preliminarily approached for the general situation in this paper, to form the analytical base of complete factor synergetics. By the essential variables constituting this system of equations we should set twenty variables respectively with relation to the essential dynamical effect, external synergetic action and internal synergetic action of the system. Keywords—complex system; disposal of resources; complete factor synergetics; fundamental equation. I.
