Different Proofs are Good Proofs

10 pagesPublished: May 15, 2012


In order to compare the quality of proofs, it is necessary to measure artifacts of the proofs, and evaluate the measurements to determine differences between the proofs. This paper discounts the approach of ranking measurements of proof artifacts, and takes the position that different proofs are good proofs. The position is based on proofs in the TSTP solution library, which are generated by Automated Theorem Proving (ATP) systems applied to first-order logic problems in the TPTP problem library.
