A Mizar Mode for HOL

The HOL theorem prover is implemented in the LCF style, meaning that all inference is ultimately reduced to a collection of very simple (forward) primitive inference rules. By programming it is possible to build alternative means of proving theorems on top, while preserving security. Existing HOL proofs styles are, however, very different from those used in textbooks. Here we describe the addition of another proof style, inspired by Mizar. We believe the resulting system combines some of the best features of both HOL and Mizar.
