Abstract : We provide machine-independent characterizations of some complexity classes, over an arbitrary structure, in the model of computation proposed by L.Blum, M.Shub and S.Smale. We show that the levels of the polynomial hierarchy correspond to safe recursion with predicative minimization. The levels of the digital polynomial hierarchy correspond to safe recursion with digital predicative minimization. Also, we show that polynomial alternating time corresponds to safe recursion with predicative substitutions and that digital polynomial alternating time corresponds to safe recursion with digital predicative substitutions.
