We introduce the uniform computation model over an arbitrary structure of 
finite signature which is analogous to the model of Blum, Shub, and Smale. We
recursively construct an additional relation for an extension of this structure
such that a unary variant of an NP-complete problem is decidable by means of
this relation with respect to the uniform model of computation in constant
time. This implies P = NP for the new structure.
