The formalization of mathematics in practice relies heavily on proof assistants and automatic theorem provers, therefore we studied what are the state of the art proof assitants and their limitations to understand what are the main challenges in making formalized mathematics common practice among mathematicians. We found out that curretly the two major dificulties in formalizing mathematics with proof assistants are due to steep learning curves in how to use these tools and due to a wide gap
