Minimal realizability of intuitionistic arithmetic and elementary analysis

Journal of Symbolic Logic 60 (4):1208-1241 (1995)
A new method of "minimal" realizability is proposed and applied to show that the definable functions of Heyting arithmetic (HA)--functions f such that HA $\vdash \forall x\exists!yA(x, y)\Rightarrow$ for all m, A(m, f(m)) is true, where A(x, y) may be an arbitrary formula of L(HA) with only x, y free--are precisely the provably recursive functions of the classical Peano arithmetic (PA), i.e., the $ -recursive functions. It is proved that, for prenex sentences provable in HA, Skolem functions may always be chosen to be $ -recursive. The method is extended to intuitionistic finite-type arithmetic, HA ω 0 , and elementary analysis. Generalized forms of Kreisel's characterization of the provably recursive functions of PA and of the no-counterexample-interpretation for PA are consequently derived
