Integrating Gandalf and HOL

Joe Hurd

March 1999, 11 pages


Gandalf is a first-order resolution theorem-prover, optimized for speed and specializing in manipulations of large clauses. In this paper I describe GANDALF TAC, a HOL tactic that proves goals by calling Gandalf and mirroring the resulting proofs in HOL. This call can occur over a network, and a Gandalf server may be set up servicing multiple HOL clients. In addition, the translation of the Gandalf proof into HOL fits in with the LCF model and guarantees logical consistency.
