In this paper we prove general logical metatheorems which state that for large classes of theorems and proofs in (nonlinear) functional analysis it is possible to extract from the proofs effective bounds which depend only on very sparse local bounds on certain parameters. This means that the bounds are uniform for all parameters meeting these weak local boundedness conditions. The results vastly generalize related theorems due to the second author where the global boundedness of the underlying metric space (resp. a convex subset of a normed space) was assumed. Our results treat general classes of spaces such as metric, hyperbolic, CAT(0), normed, uniformly convex and inner product spaces and classes of functions such as nonexpansive, HölderLipschitz, uniformly continuous, bounded and weakly quasinonexpansive ones. We give several applications in the area of metric fixed point theory. In particular, we show that the uniformities observed in a number of recently found effective bounds (by proof theoretic analysis) can be seen as instances of our general logical results.

We give a quantitative analysis of a result due to Borwein, Reich and Shafrir on the asymptotic behaviour of the general KrasnoselskiMann iteration for nonexpansive selfmappings of convex sets in arbitrary normed spaces. Besides providing explicit bounds we also get new qualitative results concerning the independence of the rate of convergence of the norm of that iteration from various input data. In the special case of bounded convex sets, where by wellknown results of Ishikawa, Edelstein/O'Brian and Goebel/Kirk the norm of the iteration converges to zero, we obtain uniform bounds which do not depend on the starting point of the iteration and the nonexpansive function, but only depend on the error #, an upper bound on the diameter of C and some very general information on the sequence of scalars # k used in the iteration. Only in the special situation, where # k := # is constant, uniform bounds were known in that bounded case. For the unbounded case, no quantitative information was ...
Number theory and elementary arithmetic

Elementary arithmetic (also known as “elementary function arithmetic”) is a fragment of firstorder arithmetic so weak that it cannot prove the totality of an iterated exponential function. Surprisingly, however, the theory turns out to be remarkably robust. I will discuss formal results that show that many theorems of number theory and combinatorics are derivable in elementary arithmetic, and try to place these results in a broader philosophical context. 1

In this paper we develop mathematically strong systems of analysis in higher types which, nevertheless, are prooftheoretically weak, i.e. conservative over elementary resp. primitive recursive arithmetic. These systems are based on noncollapsing hierarchies ( n WKL+ ; n WKL+ ) of principles which generalize (and for n = 0 coincide with) the socalled `weak' König's lemma WKL (which has been studied extensively in the context of second order arithmetic) to logically more complex tree predicates. Whereas the second order context used in the program of reverse mathematics requires an encoding of higher analytical concepts like continuous functions F : X ! Y between Polish spaces X;Y , the more exible language of our systems allows to treat such objects directly. This is of relevance as the encoding of F used in reverse mathematics tacitly yields a constructively enriched notion of continuous functions which e.g. for F : IN ! IN can be seen (in our higher order context)

This paper is a case study in proof mining applied to noneffective proofs in nonlinear functional analysis. More specifically, we are concerned with the fixed point theory of nonexpansive selfmappings f of convex sets C in normed spaces. We study the Krasnoselski iteration as well as more general socalled KrasnoselskiMann iterations. These iterations converge to fixed points of f under certain compactness conditions. But, as we show, already for uniformly convex spaces in general no bound on the rate of convergence can be computed uniformly in f . This is related to the nonuniqueness of fixed points. However, the iterations yield even without any compactness assumption and for arbitrary normed spaces approximate fixed points of arbitrary quality for bounded C (asymptotic regularity, Ishikawa 1976). We apply proof theoretic techniques (developed in previous papers of us) to noneffective proofs of this regularity and extract effective uniform bounds on the rate of the asymptotic re...
