Translating Mizar for First Order Theorem Provers

  • Conference paper
  • First Online:
Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM 2003)

Part of the book series: Lecture Notes in Computer Science ((LNCS,volume 2594))

Included in the following conference series:


The constructor system of the Mizar proof checking system is explained here on examples from Mizar articles,and its translation to untyped first-order syntax is described and discussed.This makes the currently largest library of formalized mathematics available to first- order theorem provers.

A more detailed version of this article will be a part of author’s PhD thesis.
