In this paper we develop a sorted version of type theory; we ex- tend the syntax and semantics of simple type theory by a higher order sort concept that includes term declarations.  ...  {For the entire collection see MR 94f:68008.} 94g:68097 68T15 03B15 03B35 68Q55 Kohlhase, Michael (D-SAAR; Saarbriicken) Unification in order-sorted type theory.  ... 

Extending the Resolution Method with Sorts

Christoph Weidenbach
1993 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
In this paper I extend the standard first-order resolution method with special reasoning mechanisms for sorts. Sorts are unary predicates.  ...  Sorted unification exploits the sort restrictions of variables with respect to the sort theory.  ...  Lemma 6 Sorted unification is undecidable and of unification type infinitary. Lemma 6 is a worst case result.  ...

1996 Mathematical Reviews  
The main emphasis is given to first-order (theory) unification, but the paper also contains substantial information on higher-order unification and unification in sort theories.  ...  A spe- cial chapter is devoted to higher-order unification, unification in sort theories and constraint solving.  ... 

Automated Theorem Proving in First-Order Logic Modulo: On the Difference between Type Theory and Set Theory [chapter]

Gilles Dowek
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
When it is applied to some first-order presentations of type theory, it simulates exactly higherorder resolution. In this note, we compare how it behaves on type theory and on set theory.  ...  Resolution modulo is a first-order theorem proving method that can be applied both to first-order presentations of simple type theory (also called higher-order logic) and to set theory.  ...  Resolution modulo in set theory In set theory, there is no rule rewriting terms to terms. Hence, unification in set theory is simply first-order unification.  ...

Unification and Narrowing in Maude 2.4 [chapter]

Manuel Clavel, Francisco Durán, Steven Eker, Santiago Escobar, Patrick Lincoln, Narciso Martí-Oliet, José Meseguer, Carolyn Talcott
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Unification is supported in Core Maude, the core rewriting engine of Maude, with commands and metalevel functions for order-sorted unification modulo some frequently occurring equational axioms.  ...  This paper introduces novel features of Maude 2.4 including support for unification and narrowing.  ...  Order-sorted unification is NP-complete in general because Boolean algebra can be encoded as an order-sorted free theory signature and hence satisfiability can be reduced to an order-sorted free theory  ...

Equational Cryptographic Reasoning in the Maude-NRL Protocol Analyzer

Santiago Escobar, Catherine Meadows, José Meseguer
2007 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Order-sorted B-unification plays a crucial role; to obtain this functionality we describe a sort propagation algorithm that filters out unsorted B-unifiers provided by the CiME unification tool.  ...  In this paper we extend our framework to include theories of the form ∆ B, where B is the theory of associativity and commutativity and ∆ is convergent modulo B.  ...  Order-sorted Unification Modulo Equations As the protocol is specified using an order-sorted theory with AC axioms, narrowing requires an order-sorted AC unification procedure.  ...

Unification in sort theories and its applications

Christoph Weidenbach
1996 Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence  
In this language sorted unification in elementary sort theories is of unification type finitary.  ...  Abstract In this article I investigate the properties of unification in sort theories. The usual notion of a sort consisting of a sort symbol is extended to a set of sort symbols.  ...  A sort theory L is of type: The Sorted Unification Algorithm Definition 4.15 (Notions for Sorted Unification) In order to define sorted unification, we have to extend Definition 3.1.  ...

Order-sorted Equational Unification Revisited

Joe Hendrix, José Meseguer
2012 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
This paper presents a rule-based algorithm for performing order-sorted E-unification using an unsorted E-unification decision procedure under assumptions about E that are commonly satisfied in practice  ...  In many examples of interest, using order-sorted unification over unsorted unification is able to reduce the total number of unifiers considered, and dramatically improve the performance of the Maude-NRL  ...  When those subterms are well-typed with the same topmost sort k, substitutions generated by the unsorted unification procedure should be well-typed as well Provided that the sorts of fresh variables in  ...

Unification in many-sorted algebras as a device for incremental semantic analysis

Gregor Snelting, Wolfgang Henhapl

During editing, these rules are evaluated using a unification algorithm for many-sorted algebras with semi-lattice ordered subsorts and non-empty equational theories.  ...  Since the general problem is not solvable, we have developed an extension of our unification in order to be able to handle arbitrary equational theories, which works correct with The basic idea is as follows  ...  Nons y n t a c t i c a t t r i b u t e f l o w in languagebased e d i t o r s .
