A Shallow Embedding of Resolution and Superposition Proofs into the $\lambda\Pi$-Calculus Modulo

15 pagesPublished: May 26, 2013

Abstract

The λΠ-calculus modulo is a proof language that has been proposed as a proof standard
for (re-)checking and interoperability. Resolution and superposition are proof-search methods that are used in state-of-the-art first-order automated theorem provers. We provide a shallow embedding of resolution and superposition proofs in the λΠ-calculus modulo, thus offering a way to check these proofs in a trusted setting, and to combine them with other proofs. We implement this embedding as a backend of the prover iProver Modulo.

Keyphrases: automatic theorem provers, Interoperability, proof checking, rewriting
