<P>These proofs are mainly by Florian Kammüller.  (Later, Larry
ballarin@13949
    11
Paulson simplified some of the proofs.)  These theories were indeed
ballarin@13949
    12
the original motivation for locales.

Here is an outline of the directory's contents: <UL> <LI>Theory <A
ballarin@13949
    15
HREF="Group.html"><CODE>Group</CODE></A> defines semigroups, monoids,
ballarin@13949
    16
groups, commutative monoids, commutative groups, homomorphisms and the
ballarin@13949
    17
subgroup relation.  It also defines the product of two groups
ballarin@13949
    18
(This theory was reimplemented by Clemens Ballarin).

ballarin@13949

<LI>Theory <A HREF="FiniteProduct.html"><CODE>FiniteProduct</CODE></A> extends
ballarin@13949
    21
commutative groups by a product operator for finite sets (provided by
ballarin@13949
    22
Clemens Ballarin).
ballarin@13949
    23
ballarin@13949
    24
<LI>Theory <A HREF="Coset.html"><CODE>Coset</CODE></A> defines
ballarin@13949
    25
the factorization of a group and shows that the factorization a normal
ballarin@13949
    26
subgroup is a group.
ballarin@13949
    27
ballarin@13949
    28
<LI>Theory <A HREF="Bij.html"><CODE>Bij</CODE></A>
ballarin@13949
    29
defines bijections over sets and operations on them and shows that they
ballarin@13949
    30
are a group.  It shows that automorphisms form a group.
ballarin@13949
    31
ballarin@13949
    32
<LI>Theory <A HREF="Exponent.html"><CODE>Exponent</CODE></A> the

    33
	    combinatorial argument underlying Sylow's first theorem.

ballarin@13949
    35
<LI>Theory <A HREF="Sylow.html"><CODE>Sylow</CODE></A>

<UL><LI>Theory <A HREF="CRing.html"><CODE>CRing</CODE></A>
ballarin@13949
    42
defines Abelian monoids and groups.  The difference to commutative
ballarin@13949
    43
      structures is merely notational:  the binary operation is
ballarin@13949
    44
      addition rather than multiplication.  Commutative rings are
ballarin@13949
    45
      obtained by inheriting properties from Abelian groups and
ballarin@13949
    46
      commutative monoids.  Further structures in the algebraic

introduces the notion of a R-left-module over an Abelian group, where

    51
	R is a ring.

<H2>Legacy Development of Rings using Axiomatic Type Classes</H2>
paulson@7998
    59
paulson@7998
    60
<P>This development of univariate polynomials is separated into an
paulson@7998
    61
abstract development of rings and the development of polynomials
paulson@7998
    62
itself. The formalisation is based on [Jacobson1985], and polynomials
paulson@7998
    63
have a sparse, mathematical representation. These theories were
paulson@7998
    64
developed as a base for the integration of a computer algebra system
paulson@7998
    65
to Isabelle [Ballarin1999], and was designed to match implementations
paulson@7998
    66
of these domains in some typed computer algebra systems.  Summary:
