Interactive Proving, Higher-Order Rewriting, and Theory Analysis in Theorema 2.0

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9725)


In this talk we will report on three useful tools recently implemented in the frame of the Theorema project: a graphical user interface for interactive proof development, a higher-order rewriting mechanism, and a tool for automatically analyzing the logical structure of Theorema-theories. Each of these three tools already proved extremely useful in the extensive formal exploration of a non-trivial mathematical theory, namely the theory of Gröbner bases and reduction rings, in Theorema 2.0.
