Normalization procedures are an important component of most automated theorem provers. In this work we present an adaption of advanced first-order normalization techniques for higher-order theorem proving which have been bundled in a stand-alone tool. It can be used in conjunction with any higher-order theorem prover, even though the implemented techniques are primarily targeted on resolution-based provers. We evaluated the normalization procedure on selected problems of the TPTP using multiple
