Efficient Full Higher-Order Unification

Petar Vukmirović, Alexander Bentkamp, Visa Nummelin, Zena M. Ariola
2020 International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction  
We developed a procedure to enumerate complete sets of higher-order unifiers based on work by Jensen and Pietrzykowski.  ...  Our unification procedure is implemented in the Zipperposition theorem prover. Experimental evaluation shows a clear advantage over Jensen and Pietrzykowski's procedure.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to the maintainers of StarExec for letting us use their service.  ...

Linear Higher-Order Matching Is NP-Complete [chapter]

Philippe de Groote
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We consider the problem of higher-order matching restricted to the set of linear λ-terms (i.e., λ-terms where each abstraction λx. M is such that there is exactly one free occurrence of x in M ).  ...  We prove that this problem is decidable by showing that it belongs to NP. Then we prove that this problem is in fact NP-complete. Finally, we discuss some heuristics for a practical algorithm.  ...  Rusinowitch for interesting discussions about some of the material in this paper.  ...

Simplifying the signature in second-order unification

Jordi Levy, Mateu Villaret
2009 Applicable Algebra in Engineering, Communication and Computing  
Our work simplifies the study of Second-Order Unification and some of its variants, like Context Unification and Bounded Second-Order Unification.  ...  In this work we reduce Second-Order Unification to Second-Order Unification with a signature that contains just one binary function symbol and constants.  ...  Bounded Second-Order Unification [21, 29] is a decidable variant of Second-Order Unification.  ...

Variant-Based Decidable Satisfiability in Initial Algebras with Predicates [article]

Raúl Gutiérrez, José Meseguer
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Variant satisfiability is a theory-generic procedure for quantifier-free satisfiability in the initial algebra of an order-sorted equational theory (Σ,E ∪ B) under two conditions: (i) E ∪ B has the finite  ...  variant property and B has a finitary unification algorithm; and (ii) (Σ,E ∪ B) protects a constructor subtheory (Ω,E_Ω∪ B_Ω) that is OS-compact.  ...  Obviously, the bigger the decidable subtheory T 0 Ď T , the higher the levels of automation and the greater the chances of scaling up the verification effort.  ...

A spe- cial chapter is devoted to higher-order unification, unification in sort theories and constraint solving.  ...  The main emphasis is given to first-order (theory) unification, but the paper also contains substantial information on higher-order unification and unification in sort theories.  ... 

Nominal Unification from a Higher-Order Perspective

Jordi Levy, Mateu Villaret
2012 ACM Transactions on Computational Logic  
From this view, we show that nominal unification can be reduced to a particular fragment of higher-order unification problems: Higher-Order Pattern Unification.  ...  This reduction proves that nominal unification can be decided in quadratic deterministic time, using the linear algorithm for Higher-Order Pattern Unification.  ...  From a higher-order perspective, nominal unification can be seen as a variant of higher-order unification where: 1. variables are all first-order typed, and constants are of order at most three (therefore  ...

Towards a Substitution Tree Based Index for Higher-order Resolution Theorem Provers

Tomer Libal, Alexander Steen
2016 Conference on Automated Deduction  
Our attempt tries to handle two difficulties which arise when extending the indexes to higher-order. The first difficulty is the need for higher-order anti-unification.  ...  In this paper we describe an attempt to extend such indexes for the use of higher-order resolution theorem provers.  ...  Acknowledgements Work of the first author was funded by the ERC Advanced Grant ProofCert. The second author has been supported by the DFG under grant BE 2501/11-1 (Leo-III).  ...
