In a previous work (“Abstract Data Type Systems”, TCS 173(2), 1997), the last two authors presented a combined language made of a (strongly normalizing) algebraic rewrite system and a typed λcalculus enriched by patternmatching definitions following a certain format, called the “General Schema”, which generalizes the usual recursor definitions for natural numbers and similar “basic inductive types”. This combined language was shown to be strongly normalizing. The purpose of this paper is to reformulate and extend the General Schema in order to make it easily extensible, to capture a more general class of inductive types, called “strictly positive”, and to ease the strong normalization proof of the resulting system. This result provides a computation model for the combination of an algebraic specification language based on abstract data types and of a strongly typed functional language with strictly positive inductive types.

This paper extends the termination proof techniques based on reduction orderings to a higherorder setting, by adapting the recursive path ordering definition to terms of a typed lambdacalculus generated by a signature of polymorphic higherorder function symbols. The obtained ordering is wellfounded, compatible with fireductions and with polymorphic typing, monotonic with respect to the function symbols, and stable under substitution. It can therefore be used to prove the strong normalizationproperty of higherorder calculi in which constants can be defined by higherorder rewrite rules. For example, the polymorphic version of Gödel's recursor for the natural numbers is easily oriented. And indeed, our ordering is polymorphic, in the sense that a single comparison allows to prove the termination property of all monomorphic instances of a polymorphic rewrite rule. Several other nontrivial examples are given which examplify the expressive power of the ordering.

Hybrid systems are models for complex physical systems and are defined as dynamical systems with interacting discrete transitions and continuous evolutions along differential equations. With the goal of developing a theoretical and practical foundation for deductive verification of hybrid systems, we introduce a dynamic logic for hybrid programs, which is a program notation for hybrid systems. As a verification technique that is suitable for automation, we introduce a free variable proof calculus with a novel combination of realvalued free variables and Skolemisation for lifting quantifier elimination for real arithmetic to dynamic logic. The calculus is compositional, i.e., it reduces properties of hybrid programs to properties of their parts. Our main result proves that this calculus axiomatises the transition behaviour of hybrid systems completely relative to differential equations. In a case study with cooperating traffic agents of the European Train Control System, we further show that our calculus is wellsuited for verifying realistic hybrid systems with parametric system dynamics.

Abstract. In a previous work, we proved that an important part of the Calculus of Inductive Constructions (CIC), the basis of the Coq proof assistant, can be seen as a Calculus of Algebraic Constructions (CAC), an extension of the Calculus of Constructions with functions and predicates defined by higherorder rewrite rules. In this paper, we prove that almost all CIC can be seen as a CAC, and that it can be further extended with nonstrictly positive types and inductiverecursive types together with nonfree constructors and patternmatching on defined symbols. 1.
DifferentialAlgebraic Dynamic Logic for DifferentialAlgebraic Programs

Abstract. We generalise dynamic logic to a logic for differentialalgebraic programs, i.e., discrete programs augmented with firstorder differentialalgebraic formulas as continuous evolution constraints in addition to firstorder discrete jump formulas. These programs characterise interacting discrete and continuous dynamics of hybrid systems elegantly and uniformly. For our logic, we introduce a calculus over real arithmetic with discrete induction and a new differential induction with which differentialalgebraic programs can be verified by exploiting their differential constraints algebraically without having to solve them. We develop the theory of differential induction and differential refinement and analyse their deductive power. As a case study, we present parametric tangential roundabout maneuvers in air traffic control and prove collision avoidance in our calculus.

The lambdaPicalculus allows to express proofs of minimal predicate logic. It can be extended, in a very simple way, by adding computation rules. This leads to the lambdaPicalculus modulo. We show in this paper that this simple extension is surprisingly expressive and, in particular, that all functional Pure Type Systems, such as the system F, or the Calculus of Constructions, can be embedded in it. And, moreover, that this embedding is conservative under termination hypothesis.

Abstract. We present constructive arithmetic in Deduction modulo with rewrite rules only. In natural deduction and in sequent calculus, the cut elimination theorem and the analysis of the structure of cut free proofs is the key to many results about predicate logic with no axioms: analyticity and nonprovability results, completeness results for proof search algorithms, decidability results for fragments, constructivity results for the intuitionistic case... Unfortunately, the properties of cut free proofs do not extend in the presence of axioms and the cut elimination theorem is not as powerful in this case as it is in pure logic. This motivates the extension of the notion of cut for various axiomatic theories such as arithmetic, Church’s simple type theory, set theory and others. In general, we can say that a new axiom will necessitate a specific extension of the notion of cut: there still is no notion of cut general enough to be applied to any axiomatic theory. Deduction modulo [2, 3] is one attempt, among others, towards this aim.

Abstract. Cut elimination is a central result of the proof theory. This paper proposes a new approach for proving the theorem for Gentzen’s intuitionistic sequent calculus LJ, that relies on completeness of the cutfree calculus with respect to Kripke Models. The proof defines a general framework to extend the cut elimination result to other intuitionistic deduction systems, in particular to deduction modulo provided the rewrite system verifies some properties. We also give an example of rewrite system for which cut elimination holds but that doesn’t enjoys proof normalization.

Abstract. We present a restriction of Resolution modulo where the rewrite rules are such that a clause always rewrites to a clause. This way, the reduct of a clause needs not be further transformed into clause form. Restricting Resolution modulo this way requires to extend it in another way and distinguish the rules that apply to negative and to positive atomic propositions. As an example, we show how this method applies to a firstorder presentation of Simple type theory. Finally, we show that this method can be seen as a restriction of Equational resolution that mixes clause selection restrictions and literal selection restrictions, but unlike many restrictions of Resolution, it is not an instance of Ordered resolution. 1
