The computable real numbers are the real numbers specified in this way by * computable* functions.

These models are called "computable" because, unlike economic models that exist purely to prove theoretical points, it is possible to feed actual numbers into them and get numbers out the other end.

With Mathematica 6 we launched our concept of computable data: of making realworld data immediately available in computable form directly inside Mathematica.

Using builtin computable data sources, of course.
