Interactive Theorem Proving

master program

VO2 + PS3  SS 2015  703640 + 703641


The interactive theorem proving lecture introduces the design of an LCF prover; formal proofs; structured proofs and proof scripts; higher-order logic: induction, recursive data structures and recursive functions; automation; termination proofs; correctness of programs.

The proseminar allows for deepened understanding of interactive theorem proving through training with established theorem provers; practicing through case studies of programs from different domains; working on a larger verification project.
