We present a complete formalization of the HahnBanach theorem in the simplytyped settheory of Isabelle/HOL, such that both the modeling of the underlying mathematical notions and the full proofs are intelligible to human readers. This is achieved by means of the Isar environment, which provides a framework for highlevel reasoning based on natural deduction. The final result is presented as a readable formal proof document, following usual presentations in mathematical textbooks quite closely. Our case study demonstrates that Isabelle/Isar is capable to support this kind of application of formal logic very well, while being open for an even larger scope.
The HahnBanach Theorem for Real Vector Spaces
, 2011
"... The HahnBanach Theorem is one of the most fundamental results in functional analysis. We present a fully formal proof of two versions of the theorem, one for general linear spaces and another for normed spaces. This development is based on simplytyped classical settheory, as provided by ..."

This paper presents a formal proof of the Riesz representation theorem in the PVS theorem prover. The Riemann Stieltjes integral was defined in PVS, and the theorem relies on this integral. In order to prove the Riesz representation theorem, it was necessary to prove that continuous functions on a closed interval are Riemann Stieltjes integrable with respect to any function of bounded variation. This result follows from the equivalence of the Riemann Stieltjes and Darboux Stieltjes integrals, which would have been a lengthy result to prove in PVS, so a simpler lemma was proved that captures the underlying concept of this integral equivalence. In order to prove the Riesz theorem, the Hahn Banach theorem was proved in the case where the normed linear spaces are the continuous and bounded functions on a closed interval. The proof of the Riesz theorem follows the proof in Haaser and Sullivan’s book Real Analysis. The formal proof of this result in PVS revealed an error in textbook’s proof. Indeed, the proof of the Riesz representation theorem is constructive, and the function constructed in the textbook does not satisfy a key property. This error illustrates the ability of formal verification to find logical errors. A specific counterexample is given to the proof in the textbook. Finally, a corrected proof of the Riesz representation theorem is presented.
