Generic system support for deductive program development [chapter]

Abdelwaheb Ayari, David A. Basin
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Within a conservative extension of higher-order logic implemented in the Isabelle system, we derived rules for program development that can simulate those of the deductive tableau proposed by Manna and  ...  We report on a case study in using logical frameworks to support the formalization of programming calculi and their application to deduction-based program synthesis.  ...  Our research investigates general frameworks that support such program development formalisms.  ...

Automated Deduction: Looking Ahead

Donald W. Loveland
1999 The AI Magazine  
In this article, the body of a report on automated deduction is presented that notes some significant achievements and takes a studied look at the future of the field. Articles  ...  The workshop on which this article and the underlying report are based was attended by 23 U.S. researchers, listed here; Wolfgang Bibel from the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt, Germany; Kamal Abdali, program  ...  Some type of application support package might be a requirement of all application systems using theorem provers; certainly, this general need for support packages seems true of today's automated deduction  ...

Automated deduction: achievements and future directions

D. W. Loveland
2000 Communications of the ACM  
We use the term AD for automated theorem provers, counterexample (model) generation, and consequence generators, in both fully automated and interactive systems.  ...  AD has spawned useful tools and systems, and offers great promise for making substantial progress on some of the most challenging problems in computer science and engineering--such as how to improve the  ...  and how best to support this development.  ...

The practice of logical frameworks [chapter]

Frank Pfenning
1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In addition, some general reasoning systems have been used to study deductions as mathematical objects, without specific support for the domain of deductive systems.  ...  In all but the last one, they are programmed in ML which was originally developed to support theorem proving for LCF. Logic programming offers a different approach to meta-programming.  ...
