System Description: Waldmeister — Improvements in Performance and Ease of Use
Waldmeister is an automated theorem prover for unconditional equational logic. It is based on unfailing Knuth-Bendix completion . During the rst stage of development the focus was on efficient rewriting by means of indexing and space saving techniques [2, 4]. In this paper we present two aspects of our recent work which aim at improving the system with respect to performance and ease of use. Section 2 describes a more powerful hypothesis handling. In Sect. 3 we investigate the control of the proof search and outline our current component of self-adaptation to the given proof problem.
