Introduction to HOL: A Theorem-Proving Environment for Higher-Order Logic

HOL is an evidence improvement process meant for purposes to either and software program. it's mostly utilized in methods: for at once proving theorems, and as theorem-proving help for application-specific verification platforms. HOL is at present being utilized to a wide selection of difficulties, together with the specification and verification of serious structures.

Example text

The topological considerations) which makes these notions rigorous. This section shows how to generate in a natural, constructive, and purely vector space fashion a topology for any subset of a vector space over R which coincides with the topology induced on the set by the usual topology on Rd when the vector space is R d . This is aesthetically pleasing because no inner product, norm, metric, or any other structure is needed to generate this topology. It also provides characterizations of open sets and relative interiors which are very convenient for use with polyhedral and other convex sets.

20) Theorem: Let a. E A C X. Then M ( A ) 0 E A , then M ( A ) - = a0 + L(A-ao). If L(A). Proof: Observe + L(A-ao). 12). So M ( A ) 3 a. fact that + L(A-(ao)) 00 The other inclusion follows from the is a linear manifold containing A . 0 There is an interesting the relationship between linear manifolds and elements of the dual space. 22) Then T - to (i,.. . ,&+) T - (x: [ x , : [ a , 21 - to -o 0 f A c X. The annihilator of A is for all a E A ) . Theorem: Suppose T is a linear manifold of dimension k.

One noticeable consequence of this is that projectors which project one subspace along another complementary subspace are used instead of the more common inner product based orthogonal projectors which project a subspace along its orthogonal complement. (4) Polyhedral cones are thought of as being the convex hulls of open rays just as polyhedrons are the convex hulls of points. Consequently, frames of polyhedral cones necessarily consist of open rays and not points. ( 5 ) The concept of (convexly) isolated subsets is introduced.
