Strategic Issues, Problems and Challenges in Inductive Theorem Proving

Bernhard Gramlich
2005 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Automated) Inductive Theorem Proving (ITP) is a challenging field in automated reasoning and theorem proving.  ...  In the paper we will analyze and discuss the most important strategic and proof search issues in ITP, compare ITP with TP, and argue why ITP is in a sense much more challenging.  ...  I'm very grateful to Maria Paola Bonacina and Thierry Boy de la Tour, the Program Co-Chairs of STRATEGIES 2004, for this kind invitation and for their helpful comments on a draft version of this paper.  ...

Parallelization of Termination Checkers for Algebraic Software

Rui Ding, Haruhiko Sato, Masahito Kurihara
2014 Transactions on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence  
Well-known as a method for inductive theorem proving is the Rewriting Induction (RI) proposed by Reddy.  ...  In the field of formal verification of information systems, most of the properties of such a system are formalized as inductive theorems, which are equations over terms which hold on recursivelydefined  ...  The termination property is a very important property especially in automated inductive theorem proving, which tries to prove inductive theorems, which are equations over terms which hold on recursively-defined  ...

2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This issue is becoming increasingly pressing as SMT solvers begin to gain the attention of practitioners in diverse areas of science and engineering.  ...  We present evidence that the adaptation of ideas of strategy prevalent both within the Argonne and LCF theorem proving paradigms can go a long way towards realizing this goal. Prologue.  ...  Jackson, Joost Joosten and Larry Paulson for helpful comments on a draft of this paper. We thank the referees for their many useful corrections and suggestions.  ...

Proof planning with multiple strategies

Strategic Argumentation is NP-Complete [article]

Guido Governatori, Francesco Olivieri, Simone Scannapieco, Antonino Rotolo, Matteo Cristani
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We show how to model dialogue games in a skeptical, non-monotonic formalism, and we show that the problem of deciding what move (set of rules) to play at each turn is an NP-complete problem.  ...  In this paper we study the complexity of strategic argumentation for dialogue games. A dialogue game is a 2-player game where the parties play arguments.  ...  It is included in this paper to show how to reduce the restoring sociality problem into the strategic argumentation problem, proving thus that the later is also an NP-complete problem.  ...

Strategic sequential voting in multi-issue domains and multiple-election paradoxes

Lirong Xia, Vincent Conitzer, Jérôme Lang
2011 Proceedings of the 12th ACM conference on Electronic commerce - EC '11  
In each step, the voters simultaneously vote on one issue, and the order of the issues is determined before the process. We call this model strategic sequential voting.  ...  We show several multiple-election paradoxes in strategic sequential voting: there exists a profile for which the winner under strategic sequential voting is ranked nearly at the bottom in all votes, and  ...  issues is an extremely challenging problem for which probably no perfect solution exists.  ...

The AProS Project: Strategic Thinking & Computational Logic

W. Sieg
2007 Logic Journal of the IGPL  
The Proof Lab is a sophisticated interface for constructing natural deduction proofs and is central, as strategically guided discovery of proofs is the distinctive focus of the course.  ...  (I recommend that the reader enter the virtual classroom of Logic & Proofs: the interactive components just cannot be properly reflected in a narrative.  ...  For the longest time they were considered as ''unsuitable for automated theorem proving''; that's how Fitting expressed it in the first edition of his book [9] on theorem proving.  ...

The Cantor–Bernstein theorem: how many proofs?

Wilfried Sieg
2019 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences  
This article is part of the theme issue 'The notion of 'simple proof' -Hilbert's 24th problem'.  ...  It is a non-trivial task to establish the structural identity when c is defined in this way; Dedekind of course addressed and solved the problem (in theorems #57 and #58 of WZ).  ...  Appendix A Here is the list of lemmas that are actually used in the top-level proof of the Cantor-Bernstein  ...

Integrating Automated and Interactive Theorem Proving [chapter]

Ahrendt, Beckert, Hähnle, Menzel, Reif, Schellhorn, Schmitt
1998 Applied Logic Series  
Inductive Theorems Many theorems can only be proved inductively from the axioms, but most automated theorem provers (including 3 T A P) are not capable of finding inductive proofs.  ...  The presence of inductive theorems is a fundamental problem. It can be mitigated by adding previously derived (inductive) theorems as lemmas.  ...

A normal simulation of coalition logic and an epistemic extension

Jan Broersen, Andreas Herzig, Nicolas Troquard
2007 Proceedings of the 11th conference on Theoretical aspects of rationality and knowledge - TARK '07

1996 International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences  
Wang et al. [11] proved some fixed point theorems on expansion mappings, which correspond some contractive mappings.  ...  Recently, several authors generalized their results by some ways.In this paper, we give some fixed point theorems for expansion mappings, which improve the results of some authors.  ...  Inductively, we can define a sequence {y,,} in S(X.) such that Taking the limit as n c in each case yields y St,. A similar argument applies to proving that y Su.  ...
