Abstract. Church’s Thesis asserts that the only numeric functions that can be calculated by effective means are the recursive ones, which are the same, extensionally, as the Turingcomputable numeric functions. The Abstract State Machine Theorem states that every classical algorithm is behaviorally equivalent to an abstract state machine. This theorem presupposes three natural postulates about algorithmic computation. Here, we show that augmenting those postulates with an additional requirement regarding basic operations gives a natural axiomatization of computability and a proof of Church’s Thesis, as Gödel and others suggested may be possible. In a similar way, but with a different set of basic operations, one can prove Turing’s Thesis, characterizing the effective string functions, and—in particular—the effectivelycomputable functions on string representations of numbers.

This paper is an expanded version of an part of a series of invited lectures given by the author during May 1995 in Siena, Italy to the COLORET II conference. This work is partially supported by Victoria University IGC and the Marsden Fund for Basic Science under grant VIC509. This paper is dedicated to the memory of my friend and teacher Chris Ash who contributed so much to effective structure theory and who left us far too young early in 1995

. Finding a natural meeting ground between the highly developed complexity theory of computer science with its historical roots in logic and the discrete mathematics of the integers and the traditional domain of real computation, the more eclectic less foundational field of numerical analysis with its rich history and longstanding traditions in the continuous mathematics of analysis presents a compelling challenge. Here we illustrate the issues and pose our perspective toward resolution. This article is essentially the introduction of a book with the same title (to be published by Springer) to appear shortly.

Szpilrajn's Theorem states that any partial order P = hS; <P i has a linear extension L = hS; <L i. This is a central result in the theory of partial orderings, allowing one to de ne, for instance, the dimension of a partial ordering. It is now natural to ask questions like \Does a wellpartial ordering always have a wellordered linear extension?" Variations of Szpilrajn's Theorem state, for various (but not for all) linear order types , that if P does not contain a subchain of order type , then we can choose L so that L also does not contain a subchain of order type . In particular, a wellpartial ordering always has a wellordered extension.
