We present a survey of the recent applications of continuous domains for providing simple computational models for classical spaces in mathematics including the real line, countably based locally compact spaces, complete separable metric spaces, separable Banach spaces and spaces of probability distributions. It is shown how these models have a logical and effective presentation and how they are used to give a computational framework in several areas in mathematics and physics. These include fractal geometry, where new results on existence and uniqueness of attractors and invariant distributions have been obtained, measure and integration theory, where a generalization of the Riemann theory of integration has been developed, and real arithmetic, where a feasible setting for exact computer arithmetic has been formulated. We give a number of algorithms for computation in the theory of iterated function systems with applications in statistical physics and in period doubling route to chao...

In recent years, there has been a considerable amount of work on using continuous domains in real analysis. Most notably are the development of the generalized Riemann integral with applications in fractal geometry, several extensions of the programming language PCF with a real number data type, and a framework and an implementation of a package for exact real number arithmetic. Based on recursion theory we present here a precise and direct formulation of effective representation of real numbers by continuous domains, which is equivalent to the representation of real numbers by algebraic domains as in the work of StoltenbergHansen and Tucker. We use basic ingredients of an effective theory of continuous domains to spell out notions of computability for the reals and for functions on the real line. We prove directly that our approach is equivalent to the established Turingmachine based approach which dates back to Grzegorczyk and Lacombe, is used by PourEl & Richards in their found...
Decomposition of Domains

The problem of decomposing domains into sensible factors is addressed and solved for the case of dIdomains. A decomposition theorem is proved which allows the represention of a large subclass of dIdomains in a product of flat domains. Direct product decompositions of Scottdomains are studied separately. 1 Introduction This work was initiated by Peter Buneman's interest in generalizing relational databases, see [6]. He  quite radically  dismissed the idea that a database should be forced into the format of an nary relation. Instead he allowed it to be an arbitrary antichain in a Scottdomain. The reason for this was that advanced concepts in database theory, such as `null values', `nested relations', and `complex objects' force one to augment relations and values with a notion of information order. Following Buneman's general approach, the question arises how to define basic database theoretic concepts such as `functional dependency' for antichains in Scottdomains. For...
