On the limits of computations with the floor function

László Babai, Bettina Just, Friedhelm Meyer auf der Heide
1988 Information and Computation  
Up to now, few models of computation with the power of evaluating discontinuous functions have been analyzed and few of their lower bounds or results on the decidability of languages are known.  ...  These trees operate on real numbers and are able to compare real numbers, to evaluate functions on real numbers, and to evaluate certain discontinuous functions like the '?loor function."  ...  We now define the computational model of "analytic computation trees" (ACTS). Informally, ACTS admit any function which composes the floor function and arbitrary analytic functions.  ...

None of the VAS measures were susceptible to significant floor or ceiling effects preoperatively. The VAS instruments along with SANE and PROMIS UE were the most time-efficient measures.  ...  None of the VAS instruments in our study demonstrated preoperative floor effects (7.1%-8.6%) or ceiling effects (0.0%-4.3%).  ...  Pictured are examples of how each VAS instrument appears during computer adaptive testing, with a color scale correlating to the level of pain experienced helping the patient best estimate their strength  ...
