Search algorithms in type theory

James L Caldwell, Ian P Gent, Judith Underwood
2000 Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper, we take an abstract view of search by describing search procedures via particular kinds of proofs in type theory.  ...  This paper demonstrates a nontrivial application of the proofs-as-programs paradigm by applying the technique to the derivation of a sophisticated search algorithm; also, it shows the generality of the  ...  Our approach to the veriÿcation of search algorithms uses type theory to connect the algorithm to a proof.  ...

Formal Mathematics for Verifiably Correct Program Synthesis

CHRISTOPH KREITZ
1996 Logic Journal of the IGPL  
We demonstrate the advantages of using formal mathematics in support of program development systems through an example in which we formalize a strategy for deriving global search algorithms from formal  ...  The theorems serve as derived inference rules implementing the kernel of these methods in a flexible, safe, efficient and comprehensible way.  ...  In [28] it has been shown that well-founded global search theories satisfying the four axioms lead to provably correct global search algorithms of the above kind.  ...

Automatically Finding Theory Morphisms for Knowledge Management [chapter]

Dennis Müller, Michael Kohlhase, Florian Rabe
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To remedy this problem, we have developed a morphism finder algorithm that automates theory morphism discovery.  ...  As they induce new theorems in the target theory for any of the source theory, theory morphisms are high-value elements of a modular formal library.  ...  This lemma is the center of our search algorithm explained in Lemma 2 (Core Algorithm). Consider two constant declarations c and c ′ in theories Σ and Σ ′ .  ...

Nilgun Fescioglu-Unver, Mieczyslaw M. Kokar
2008 2008 Second IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems  
In this paper the principle of self adaptation is applied to achieve a self controlling software. The software considered in this case is a heuristic search algorithm: the reactive tabu search.  ...  In reactive search algorithms, the behavior of the algorithm is evaluated and modified during the search. To improve self adaptation, two new strategies for reactive tabu search are introduced.  ...  There are several implementations of tabu search algorithm on QAP. One type of move that is mostly used in these algorithms is exchanging the location of two units [30, 4] .  ...
