An LCF-Style Interface between HOL and First-Order Logic

  title={An LCF-Style Interface between HOL and First-Order Logic},
  author={Joe Hurd},
Performing interactive proof in the HOL theorem prover [3] involves reducing goals to simpler subgoals. It turns out that many of these subgoals can be efficiently ‘finished off’ by an automatic first-order prover. To fill this niche, Harrison implemented a version of the MESON procedure [4] with the ability to translate proofs to higher-order logic. This was integrated as a HOL tactic in 1996, and has since become a standard workhorse of interactive proof. Today, building all the theories in… CONTINUE READING
