We show that real-number computations in the interval-domain environment are ‘inherently parallel’ in a precise mathematical sense. We do this by reducing computations of the weak parallel-or operation on the Sierpinski domain to computations of the addition operation on the interval domain. 
Constructive analysis, types and exact real numbers
This paper discusses various aspects of computable/constructive analysis, namely semantics, proofs and computations, and indicates that it is often natural to use constructive logic to reason about these computations.
Complexity and Intensionality in a Type-1 Framework for Computable Analysis
The introduction of complexity measures for type-1 representations of real functions, and ways to define intensional functions, i.e. functions that may return different real numbers for the same real argument given in different representations are discussed.
Semantics of a sequential language for exact real-number computation
Parallel Functions In Recursive Program Schemes
A special class of parallel functions (called invariant functions) are introduced that don’t depend on interpretation of domain on which they are defined and are analyzed in terms of sequential reducibility between the used parallel functions.
Sequential Real Number Computation and Recursive Relations
Measurable cones and stable, measurable functions: a model for probabilistic higher-order programming
We define a notion of stable and measurable map between cones endowed with measurability tests and show that it forms a cpo-enriched cartesian closed category. This category gives a denotational
A Denotational Semantics for Total Correctness of Sequential Exact Real Programs
We provide a domain-based denotational semantics for a sequential language for exact real number computation, equipped with a non-deterministic test operator. The semantics is only an approximate
A Stream Calculus of Bottomed Sequences for Real Number Computation
Foundation of Computer (Algebra) ANALYSIS Systems: Semantics, Logic, Programming, Verification
A semantics of operating on real numbers that is sound, Turing-complete, and practical is proposed, and ERC and its Turing-completeness from real functions to functionALs is expanded.
