Abstract. Automated theorem provers (ATPs) struggle to solve problems with large sets of possibly superfluous axiom. Several algorithms have been developed to reduce the number of axioms, optimally only selecting the necessary axioms. However, most of these algorithms consider only single problems. In this paper, we describe an axiom selection method for series of related problems that is based on logical and textual proximity and tries to mimic a human way of understanding mathematical texts. We present first results that indicate that this approach is indeed useful. Key words: formal mathematics, automated theorem proving, axiom selection 1

### Implicit dynamic function introduction and its connections to the foundations of mathematics

"... Abstract: We discuss a feature of the natural language of mathematics – the implicit dynamic introduction of functions – that has, to our knowledge, not been captured in any formal system so far. If this feature is used without limitations, it yields a paradox analogous to Russell’s paradox. Hence a ..."

Abstract: We discuss a feature of the natural language of mathematics – the implicit dynamic introduction of functions – that has, to our knowledge, not been captured in any formal system so far. If this feature is used without limitations, it yields a paradox analogous to Russell’s paradox. Hence any formalism capturing it has to impose some limitations on it. We sketch two formalisms, both extensions of Dynamic Predicate Logic, that innovatively do capture this feature, and that differ only in the limitations they impose onto it. One of these systems is based on a novel theory of functions that interprets ZFC, and thus exhibits interesting connections to the foundations of mathematics.
