The impact of informatics on the teaching of mathematics [chapter]

Tom J. Weert
1998 Information and Communications Technologies in School Mathematics  
But there is also an indirect impact through developments in society which are supported by informatics.  ...  For a more fundamental understanding of these impacts the role of informatics must be clear, both in real-life and in education.  ...  and logic, mathematics as 'language' and reasoning and thinking in formal mathematical models will take a more prominent place in the mathematics curriculum because of their supporting role.  ...

MathScheme: Project Description [chapter]

Jacques Carette, William M. Farmer, Russell O'Connor
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The mission of mechanized mathematics is to develop software systems that support the process people use to create, explore, connect, and apply mathematics.  ...  In particular, we rely on biform theories and an expressive logic (Chiron) for grounding.  ...  The MathScheme Library is an experimental formalization of the theories of abstract algebra, basic data-structures, and structured type constructors.  ...

Automated Reasoning and Presentation Support for Formalizing Mathematics in Mizar [chapter]

Josef Urban, Geoff Sutcliffe
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a combination of several automated reasoning and proof presentation tools with the Mizar system for formalization of mathematics.  ...  The combination forms an online service called MizAR, similar to the SystemOnTPTP service for first-order automated reasoning.  ...  Generation of ATP Problems in TPTP Format One of the main objectives of MizAR (as suggested by its name) is to allow easy experimentation with ATP systems over the large body of formal mathematics available  ...

How are programs found? speculating about language ergonomics with Curry-Howard

Johannes Emerich
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 ACM International Symposium on New Ideas, New Paradigms, and Reflections on Programming and Software - Onward! 2016  
Viewed in light of this analogy, a sampling of mathematicians' attitudes towards formal proof suggests that the crucial role of intuition and experimentation in programming tasks may be under appreciated  ...  Functional languages with strong static type systems have beneficial properties to help ensure program correctness and reliability.  ...  Andras Slemmer's interest prompted me to produce an elaborated written version. Jan Martin Raasch, Ignas Vyšniauskas and Christoph Gietl helped by discussing the written version at various stages.  ...

Constraint-Based Reasoning for Search and Explanation: Strategies for Understanding Variation and Patterns in Biology

Sara Green, Nicholaos Jones
2016 Dialectica  
We believe that formal constraints play an important role for these aims as well, but we do not develop that argument here.  ...  One important role of mathematical abstractions is to impose formal constraints on a search space for possible hypotheses and thereby guide the search for plausible causal models.  ...  We also thank the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh for financial support during the initial stages of this paper.  ...

Towards a Science of Temporal Databases

Richard T. Snodgrass
2007 14th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME'07)  
Computer science has long been considered to emphasize three distinct perspectives: mathematics, science, and engineering.  ...  While the database field has some very strong mathematical and engineering work, the scientific perspective has been much less prominent.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported in part by NSF grants IIS-0415101, IIS-0639106, and EIA-0080123 and with partial support from a grant from Microsoft Corporation.  ...

Some Considerations on the Usability of Interactive Provers [chapter]

Andrea Asperti, Claudio Sacerdoti Coen
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In spite of the remarkable achievements recently obtained in the field of mechanization of formal reasoning, the overall usability of interactive provers does not seem to be sensibly improved since the  ...  advent of the "second generation" of systems, in the mid of the eighties.  ...  , that looks as a fair bound for an interactive usage of the system.  ...
