The lead article in the March 2006 AMS notices is entitled: Computing over 
the reals: Foundations for Scientific Computing.

Mark Braverman and Steve Cook begin with an illuminating discussion of the 
difference between the algebraic model (e.g. Blum, Shub, and Smale) and 
the bit model of computing over the reals. They continue with a more 
detailed exposition of the bit model.
