In the pure Calculus of Constructions, it is possible to represent data structures and predicates using higherorder quantification. However, this representation is not satisfactory, from the point of view of both the efficiency of the underlying programs and the power of the logical system. For these reasons, the calculus was extended with a primitive notion of inductive definitions [8]. This paper describes the rules for inductive definitions in the system Coq. They are general enough to be seen as one formulation of adding inductive definitions to a typed lambdacalculus. We prove strong normalization for a subsystem of Coq corresponding to the pure Calculus of Constructions plus Inductive Definitions with only weak nondependent eliminations.

This thesis contains an investigation of Coquand's Calculus of Constructions, a basic impredicative Type Theory. We review syntactic properties of the calculus, in particular decidability of equality and typechecking, based on the equalityasjudgement presentation. We present a settheoretic notion of model, CCstructures, and use this to give a new strong normalization proof based on a modification of the realizability interpretation. An extension of the core calculus by inductive types is investigated and we show, using the example of infinite trees, how the realizability semantics and the strong normalization argument can be extended to nonalgebraic inductive types. We emphasize that our interpretation is sound for large eliminations, e.g. allows the definition of sets by recursion. Finally we apply the extended calculus to a nontrivial problem: the formalization of the strong normalization argument for Girard's System F. This formal proof has been developed and checked using the...

In various lectures given during 1992, MartinLof has presented the main ideas of a formulation of the theory of types in which substitution is not left unspecied and instead appears explicit in the expressions of the language. We here present this formulation in a complete manner. The various forms of judgements are given their semantical explanations and then a calculus is exhibited and explained in detail.

. Interactive theorem proving gives a general approach for modelling and verification of both hardware and software systems but requires significant human efforts to deal with many tedious proofs. To be used in practical, we need some automatic tools such as model checkers to deal with those tedious proofs. In this paper, we formalise a verification system of both CCS and an imperative language in LEGO which can be used to verify both finite and infinite problems. Then a model checker, LegoMC, is implemented to generate the LEGO proof terms of finite models automatically. Therefore people can use LEGO to verify a general problem and throw some finite subproblems to be verified by LegoMC. On the other hand, this integration extends the power of model checking to verify more complicated and infinite models as well. 1 Introduction Interactive theorem proving gives a general approach for modelling and verification of both hardware and software systems but requires significant human effor...

We describe a complete formalization of a strong normalization proof for the Curry style presentation of System F in LEGO. The underlying type theory is the Calculus of Constructions enriched by inductive types. The proof follows Girard et al [GLT89], i.e. we use the notion of candidates of reducibility, but we make essential use of general inductive types to simplify the presentation. We discuss extensions and variations of the proof: the extraction of a normalization function, the use of saturated sets instead of candidates, and the extension to a Church Style presentation. We conclude with some general observations about Computer Aided Formal Reasoning.

We present a formalization of the set Z of integers using MartinLof's type theory. In particular we focus on the task of proving that this set with the operations + and form an Integral Domain. The proofs are developed for an inductive definition of Z, but we also discuss what kind of proofs could be obtained for a formulation where the set is defined as a quotient. The differences between both approaches when one is interested in regarding the computational meaning of proofs are pointed out. In order to better reason about the proofs of the properties following from the postulates of an integral domain, an abstract formalization of this algebraic system is also proposed. With this, we aimed at not just being able to formally reflect the derivation of the properties independently of the concrete representation we were interested in, but also to translate these results to every algebraic structure satisfying those postulates. Keywords and phrases: integers, type theory, integral dom...

We propose related algorithms for unification and constraint simplification in !& , a refinement of the simplytyped λcalculus with subtypes and bounded intersection types. !& is intended as the basis of a logical framework in order to achieve more succinct and declarative axiomatizations of deductive systems than possible with the simplytyped λcalculus. The unification and constraint simplification algorithms described here lay the groundwork for a mechanization of such frameworks as constraint logic programming languages and theorem provers.
