Effective infinitesimals in R

We survey the effective foundations for analysis with infinitesimals recently developed by Hrbacek and Katz, and detail some applications. Theories SPOT and SCOT illustrate the fact that analysis with infinitesimals requires no more choice than traditional analysis. The theory SCOT incorporates in particular all the axioms of Nelson's Radically Elementary Probability Theory, which is therefore conservative over ZF+ADC.
