The Church-Rosser theorem in Isabelle:
a proof porting experiment

Ole Rasmussen

April 1995, 27 pages

Abstract

This paper describes a proof of the Church-Rosser theorem for the pure lambda-calculus formalised in the Isabelle theorem prover. The initial version of the proof is ported from a similar proof done in the Coq proof assistant by Girard Huet, but a number of optimisations have been performed. The development involves the introduction of several inductive and recursive definitions and thus gives a good presentation of the inductive package of Isabelle.
