A Definition-Driven Theorem Prover
April 1976 (vol. 25 no. 4)
pp. 317-322
G.W. Ernst, Department of Computing and Information Sciences, Case Western Reserve University
This paper describes a theorem prover, running on a PDP-10-Tenex system, that can prove some theorems whose statements involve a relatively large number of definitions. Such theorems require special methods because 1) their statements contain a large number of clauses and 2) their proofs are quite long although straightforward.
