By using iteration, we can define natural functions with arbitrarily high
primitive recursive rate of growth, and an interesting question is whether
these functions have natural analogues defined at all positive real numbers.
My answer:
*********
We have several proofs of the existence of such extensions in our work
towards Kleene's theory of real recursive functions. In my webpage papers
can be found with such a theory.
Special attention to a Working Paper

and several publish papers in
http://fgc.math.ist.utl.pt/pubmajor.htm
This work have been developed since 1996 and about 6 persons are comnnected
with it, including me and Jerzy Mycka.
