Feferman has proposed a system, FS 0 , as an alternative framework for encoding logics and also for reasoning about those encodings. We have implemented a version of this framework and performed experiments that show that it is practical. Specifically, we describe a formalisation of predicate calculus and the development of an admissible rule that manipulates formulae with bound variables. This application will be of interest to researchers working with frameworks that use mechanisms based on substitution in the lambda calculus to implement variable binding and substitution in the declared logic directly. We suggest that metatheoretic reasoning, even for a theory using bound variables, is not as difficult as is often supposed, and leads to more powerful ways of reasoning about the encoded theory. x 1 Introduction: why metamathematics? A logical framework is a formal theory that is designed for the purpose of describing other formal theories in a uniform way, and for making the work ...
