A Generic Approach to Building User Interfaces for Theorem Provers

  title={A Generic Approach to Building User Interfaces for Theorem Provers},
  author={Yves Bertot and Laurent Th{\'e}ry},
  journal={J. Symb. Comput.},
In this paper, we present the results of an ongoing eeort in building user interfaces for proof systems. Our approach is generic: we are not constructing a user interface for a particular proof system, rather we have developed techniques and tools that have been applied to several proof systems. We rst propose and motivate a distributed architecture , where the proof system and the interface are two separate processes communicating through a protocol. Then we describe three high-level features… CONTINUE READING
