We will apply the methods developed in the field of ‘proof mining’ to the BolzanoWeierstraß theorem BW and calibrate the computational contribution of using this theorem in proofs of combinatorial statements. We provide an explicit solution of the Gödel functional interpretation (combined with negative translation) as well as the monotone functional interpretation of BW for the product space ∏i∈N[−k i, k i] (with the standard product metric). This results in optimal program and bound extraction theorems for proofs based on fixed instances of BW, i.e. for BW applied to fixed sequences in ∏i∈N[−k i, k i].

In recent years, proof theoretic transformations (socalled proof interpretations) that are based on extensions of monotone forms of Gödel’s famous functional (‘Dialectica’) interpretation have been used systematically to extract new content from proofs in abstract nonlinear analysis. This content consists both in effective quantitative bounds as well as in qualitative uniformity results. One of the main ineffective tools in abstract functional analysis is the use of sequential forms of weak compactness. As we recently verified, the sequential form of weak compactness for bounded closed and convex subsets of an abstract (not necessarily separable) Hilbert space can be carried out in suitable formal systems that are covered by existing metatheorems developed in the course of the proof mining program. In particular, it follows that the monotone functional interpretation of this weak compactness principle can be realized by a functional Ω ∗ definable from bar recursion (in the sense of Spector) of lowest type. While a case study on the analysis of strong convergence results (due to Browder and Wittmann resp.) that are based on weak compactness indicates that the use of the latter seems to be eliminable, things apparently are different for weak convergence theorems such as the famous Baillon nonlinear ergodic theorem. For this theorem we recently extracted an
A metastable dominated convergence theorem

"... The dominated convergence theorem implies that if (fn) is a sequence of functions on a probability space taking values in the interval [0, 1], and (fn) converges pointwise a.e., then ( fn) converges to the integral of the pointwise limit.

The dominated convergence theorem implies that if (fn) is a sequence of functions on a probability space taking values in the interval [0, 1], and (fn) converges pointwise a.e., then ( fn) converges to the integral of the pointwise limit. Tao [26] has proved a quantitative version of this theorem: given a uniform bound on the rates of metastable convergence in the hypothesis, there is a bound on the rate of metastable convergence in the conclusion that is independent of the sequence (fn) and the underlying space. We prove a slight strengthening of Tao’s theorem which, moreover, provides an explicit description of the second bound in terms of the first. Specifically, we show that when the first bound is given by a continuous functional, the bound in the conclusion can be computed by a recursion along the tree of unsecured sequences. We also establish a quantitative version of Egorov’s theorem, and introduce a new mode of convergence related to these notions.

We prove a result relating the author’s monotone functional interpretation to the bounded functional interpretation due to Ferreira and Oliva. More precisely we show that (over model of majorizable functionals) largely a solution for the bounded interpretation also is a solution for monotone functional interpretation although the latter uses the existence of an underlying precise witness. This makes it possible to focus on the extraction of bounds (as in the bounded interpretation) while using the conceptual benefit of having precise realizers at the same time without having to construct them.
