On the Structure of Classical Realizability Models of ZF

9.pdf (0.5 MB)


The technique of classical realizability is an extension of the method of forcing; it permits to extend the Curry-Howard correspondence between proofs and programs, to Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory and to build new models of ZF, called realizability models. The structure of these models is, in general, much more complicated than that of the particular case of forcing models.

We show here that the class of constructible sets of any realizability model is an elementary extension of the constructibles of the ground model (a trivial fact in the case of forcing, since these classes are identical).

By Shoenfield absoluteness theorem, it follows that every true Sigma^1_3 formula is realized by a closed lambda_c-term.
