Abstract

Matita is an interactive theorem prover being developed by the Helm team at the University of Bologna. Its stable version 0.5.x may be downloaded at http://matita.cs.unibo.it . The tool originated in the European project MoWGLI as a set of XML-based tools aimed to provide a mathematician-friendly web-interface to repositories of formal mathematical knoweldge, supporting advanced content-based functionalities for querying, searching and browsing the library. It has since then evolved into a fully fledged ITP, specifically designed as a light-weight, but competitive system, particularly suited for the assessment of innovative ideas, both at foundational and logical level. In this paper, we give an account of the whole system, its peculiarities and its main applications.
