Focalisation and Classical Realisability

We develop a polarised variant of Curien and Herbelin’s \(\bar{\lambda}\mu\tilde{\mu}\) calculus suitable for sequent calculi that admit a focalising cut elimination (i.e. whose proofs are focalised when cut-free), such as Girard’s classical logic LC or linear logic. This gives a setting in which Krivine’s classical realisability extends naturally (in particular to call-by-value), with a presentation in terms of orthogonality. We give examples of applications to the theory of programming languages.
