This paper reports on a case study carried out with the generic theorem prover Isabelle. The purpose of this study was to investigate the process of instantiating a generic system like Isabelle for a particular logic (equational logic in this case). Isabelle is like a compiler-compiler, except that it compiles a logic definition into an LCF-style theorem prover for that logic. To make that theorem prover usable, a number of logic-specific “tactics”, embodying useful theorem proving techniques… CONTINUE READING
