Higher-Order Unification Revisited: Complete Sets of Transformations

  title={Higher-Order Unification Revisited: Complete Sets of Transformations},
  author={Wayne Snyder and Jean H. Gallier},
  journal={J. Symb. Comput.},
In this paper, we reexamine the problem of general higher-order unification and develop an approach based on the method of transformations on systems of terms which has its roots in Herbrand’s thesis, and which was developed by Martelli and Montanari in the context of first-order unification. This method provides an abstract and mathematically elegant means of analyzing the invariant properties of unification in various settings by providing a clean separation of the logical issues from the… CONTINUE READING
