Problem Solving in Interactive Proof: A Knowledge-Modelling Approach

  title={Problem Solving in Interactive Proof: A Knowledge-Modelling Approach},
  author={J. Stuart Aitken},
This paper presents a model of proof discovery derived from the proof attempts of subjects who carried out interactive proofs using the HOL or Isabelle provers. Techniques of knowledge modelling, from knowledge-basedsystem development, are used to derive a semi-formal model of the knowledge utilised by the subjects. The proposed model makes claims about the relation between the problem class, the proof plan and its implementation.
