Higher Order Unification via Explicit Substitutions

Gilles Dowek, Thérèse Hardin, Claude Kirchner
2000 Information and Computation  
Higher order uni cation is equational uni cation for -conversion. But it is not rst order equational uni cation, as substitution has to avoid capture.  ...  Such a separation and delay are provided by a calculus of explicit substitutions.  ...  In this way we reduce higher order uni cation to rst order equational uni cation in .  ...

Higher-order unification via explicit substitutions

G. Dowek, T. Hardin, C. Kirchner
Proceedings of Tenth Annual IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science  
In this paper higher-order uni cation is reduced to rstorder equational uni cation in a suitable theory: the -calculus of explicit substitutions.  ...  Higher-order uni cation is equational uni cation for -conversion. But it is not rst-order equational uni cation, as substitution has to avoid capture.  ...  At last, this work suggests that higher-order logic itself should be expressed with explicit substitutions. Then, higher-order resolution would be equational resolution in this theory.  ...

Second-Order Matching via Explicit Substitutions [chapter]

Flávio L. C. de Moura, Fairouz Kamareddine, Mauricio Ayala-Rincón
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The past few years have established the benefit of using explicit substitutions for theorem proving and higher-order unification.  ...  In this paper, we will make use of explicit substitutions to facilitate matching: we develop a second-order matching algorithm via the λσ-style of explicit substitutions.  ...  Using the λσ-style of explicit substitutions has the well known advantage of reducing higher-order unification problems into equivalent first-order equational unification problems, and in this way, the  ...

Optimizing Higher-Order Pattern Unification [chapter]

Brigitte Pientka, Frank Pfenning
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The presented modal framework explains a number of features of the current implementation of higher-order unification in Twelf and provides insight into several optimizations.  ...  This allows us to justify optimizations to pattern unification such as linearization, which eliminates many unnecessary occurs-checks.  ...  Higher-order unification is implemented via Huet's algorithm [5] and special mechanisms are molded into the WAM instruction set to support branching and carrying unification problems.  ...

Currying Second-Order Unification Problems [chapter]

Jordi Levy, Mateu Villaret
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also discuss about the difficulties of applying the same ideas to third or higher order unification.  ...  This is roughly what it is done in explicit unification.  ...  We acknowledge Roberto Nieuwenhuis for suggesting us the use of currying in second-order unification problems. We also thank all the anonymous referees for their helpful comments.  ...

Functional Pearl: Dependent type inference via free higher-order unification [article]

Nikolai Kudasov
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The cornerstone of dependent type inference is higher-order unification. Even though many algorithms exist, state-of-the-art is implementing it directly for a particular proof assistant.  ...  These constructions allow us to handle scopes in a language-agnostic way and provide generic higher-order unification algorithms, which serve as a foundation for dependent type inference.  ...  Second, we should make higher-order unification more efficient by optimizing the representation of free scoped monads and taking into account the types of unified terms.  ...

, substitution, etc., are not addressed naturally by the structure of first-order terms (labeled trees).  ...  In particular, we shall focus on a representation of syntax called higher-order abstract syntax and on a more primitive version of that representation called λ-tree syntax.  ...  Both systems implemented versions of unification for simply typed λ-terms modulo α, β, η conversion (often called higher-order unification).  ...
