Mathematically Strong Subsystems of Analysis With Low Rate of Growth of Provably Recursive Functionals

This paper is the first one in a sequel of papers resulting from the authors Habilitationsschrift [22] which are devoted to determine the growth in proofs of standard parts of analysis. A hierarchy (GnA # )n#I N of systems of arithmetic in all finite types is introduced whose definable objects of type 1 = 0(0) correspond to the Grzegorczyk hierarchy of primitive recursive functions. We establish the following extraction rule for an extension of GnA # by quantifierfree choice ACqf and analytical axioms # having the form #x # #y ## sx#z # F0 (including also a `non standard' axiom F  which does not hold in the full settheoretic model but in the strongly majorizable functionals): From a proof GnA # +ACqf + # # #u 1 , k 0 #v ## tuk#w 0 A0(u, k, v, w) one can extract a uniform bound # such that #u 1 , k 0 #v ## tuk#w # #ukA0 (u, k, v, w) holds in the full settheoretic type structure. In case n = 2 (resp. n = 3) #uk is a polynomial (resp. an elementary recursive function) in k, u M := #x. max(u0, . . . , ux). In the present paper we show that for n # 2, GnA # +ACqf+F  proves a generalization of the binary Knig's lemma yielding new conservation results since the conclusion of the above rule can be verified in G max(3,n) A # in this case. In a subsequent paper we will show that many important ine#ective analytical principles and theorems can be proved already in G2A # +ACqf+# for suitable #. 1
COMPLEXITY HIERARCHIES BEYOND ELEMENTARY

Abstract. We introduce a hierarchy of fastgrowing complexity classes and show its suitability for completeness statements of many non elementary problems. This hierarchy allows the classification of many decision problems with a nonelementary complexity, which occur naturally in logic, combinatorics, formal languages, verification, etc., with complexities ranging from simple towers of exponentials to Ackermannian and beyond. 1.

Abstract. In this article, we study some new characterizations of primitive recursive functions based on restricted forms of primitive recursion, improving the pioneering work of R. M. Robinson and M. D. Gladstone in this area. We reduce certain recursion schemes (mixed/pure iteration without parameters) and we characterize oneargument primitive recursive functions as the closure under composition and iteration of certain optimal sets. §1. Introduction. Prim, i.e. the set of primitive recursive functions, is the closure under composition and primitive recursion of zero, successor and projection functions. For a detailed definition, the reader is referred to any standard work, for instance chapter 1 of [8]. A suitable subset is Prim(N, N), i.e. the set of unary primitive recursive functions, that will be one of the objects of our
