Deterministic k-tape and multitape Turing machines with one-way, two-way and without a separated input tape are considered. We investigate the classes of languages acceptable by such devices with time bounds of the form n+r(n), where r∈o(n) is a sublinear function. It is shown that there exist infinite time hierarchies of separated complexity classes in that range. For these classes weak closure properties are proved. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
