Introduction to HOL: A Theorem-Proving Environment for Higher-Order Logic. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: HOL is a proof development system intended for applications to both hardware and software. It is principally used in two ways: for directly proving theorems, and as theorem-proving support for application-specific verification systems. HOL is currently being applied to a wide variety of problems, including the specification and verification of critical systems. Introduction to HOL provides a coherent and self-contained description of HOL containing both a tutorial introduction and most of the material that is needed for day-to-day work with the system. After a quick overview that gives a 'hands-on feel' for the way HOL is used, there follows a detailed description of the ML language. The logic that HOL supports and how this logic is embedded in ML are then described in detail. This is followed by an explanation of the theorem-proving infrastructure provided by HOL. Finally two appendices contain a subset of the reference manual, and an overview of the HOL library, including an example of an actual library documentation.
Book Description: The HOL system aids the development of safety-critical software. The purpose here has been to provide a coherent and self-contained introduction to HOL and to extract and compress from various sources most of the material that is needed for day-to-day work with the system.
