Validating Reasoning Heuristics Using Next-Generation Theorem-Provers

2007 Proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Modelling, Simulation, Verification and Validation of Enterprise Information Systems   unpublished
The specification of enterprise information systems using formal specification languages enables the formal verification of these systems. Reasoning about the properties of a formal specification is a tedious task that can be facilitated much through the use of an automated reasoner. However, set theory is a corner stone of many formal specification languages and poses demanding challenges to automated reasoners. To this end a number of heuristics has been developed to aid the Otter theorem
