Soundness of the simply typed lambda calculus in ACL2

Sol Swords, William R. Cook
2006 Proceedings of the sixth international workshop on the ACL2 theorem prover and its applications - ACL2 '06  
To illustrate this method, we present a proof in ACL2 of the soundness of the simply typed λ-calculus.  ...  We introduce a method for performing these proofs in ACL2, including a macro which automates the process of defining functions and theorems to facilitate reasoning about recursive data types.  ...  In this paper we examine a proof in ACL2 of the soundness of the simply-typed λ-calculus, discussing problems which present themselves in going from the well-known hand proof to a mechanized proof.  ...

Size-Change Termination as a Contract [article]

Phuc C. Nguyen, Thomas Gilray, Sam Tobin-Hochstadt, David Van Horn
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We formulate run-time size-change checks as contracts in the style of Findler and Felleisen.  ...  One such method is the size-change termination approach of Lee, Jones, and Ben-Amram, which operates in two phases: (1) abstract programs into "size-change graphs," and (2) check these graphs for the size-change  ...  Nguyễn, Thomas Gilray, Sam Tobin-Hochstadt, and David Van Horn Lambda-calculus interpreter Checking termination of an interpreter for a turing-complete language is challenging-after all, the interpreter  ...

Formal verification of a generic framework to synthesize SAT-provers

Francisco -Jesús Martín-Mateos, José -Antonio Alonso, María -José Hidalgo, José -Luis Ruiz-Reina
2004 Journal of automated reasoning  
We present in this paper an application of the ACL2 system to generate and reason about propositional satisfiability provers.  ...  For that purpose, we develop a framework where we define a generic SAT-prover based on transformation rules, and we formalize this generic framework in the ACL2 logic, carrying out a formal proof of its  ...  We will call O G the set of propositional objects (or simply objects) and G the set of expansion rules.  ...

Directly reflective meta-programming

Aaron Stump
2008 Higher-Order and Symbolic Computation  
This paper presents a new meta-programming language, based on an untyped lambda calculus, in which structurally reflective programming is supported directly, without any encoding.  ...  The language features call-by-value and call-by-name lambda abstractions, as well as novel reflective features enabling the intensional manipulation of arbitrary program terms.  ...  Many thanks to the anonymous reviewers of previous versions of this paper for their thorough reading and insightful criticisms.  ...

PhD Abstracts

GRAHAM HUTTON
2014 Journal of functional programming  
A dissertation is eligible if parts of it have or could have appeared in JFP, that is, if it is in the general area of functional programming. The abstracts are not reviewed.  ...  As a service to the community, JFP is launching a new feature, in the form of a regular publication of abstracts from PhD dissertations that were completed during the previous year.  ...  We give a gentle introduction to our approach which only assumes elementary knowledge of simply-typed λ calculus and rewriting.  ...

Mathematical Induction in Otter-Lambda

2006 Journal of automated reasoning  
This is the first time that such a first-order prover has been combined in one program with a unification algorithm capable of instantiating variables to lambda terms to assist in the deductions.  ...  The resulting prover has all the advantages of the proof-search algorithm of Otter (speed, variety of inference rules, excellent handling of equality) and also the power of lambda unification.  ...  be found; but we can also simply observe that if we do use 0, the proof that is found is in fact correctly typed.  ...

Programmed Strategies for Program Verification

Richard B. Kieburtz
2007 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Properties refine the type system of Haskell but cannot be verified by type-checking alone; a more powerful logical verifier is needed.  ...  In Programatica, predicate definitions and property assertions written in P-logic, a programming logic for Haskell, can be embedded in the text of a Haskell program module.  ...  Three such definitions are given in Fig. 5 , each corresponding to one of the three specifications of normal forms for the lambda calculus that were mentioned in the preceding paragraph.  ...

Jasmin Christian Blanchette
2019 Proceedings of the 8th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Certified Programs and Proofs - CPP 2019
