Abstract

We demonstrate the use of abstraction in aiding the construction of an interesting and difficult example in a proof checking system. This experiment demonstrates that abstraction can make proofs easier to comprehend and to verify mechanically. To support such proof checking, we have developed a formal theory of abstraction and added facilities for using abstraction to the GETFOL proof checking system.
