* Authentic syntax for *all* logical entities (type classes, type
wenzelm@35436
    10
constructors, term constants): provides simple and robust
wenzelm@35436
    11
correspondence between formal entities and concrete syntax.  Within
wenzelm@35436
    12
the parse tree / AST representations, "constants" are decorated by
wenzelm@35436
    13
their category (class, type, const) and spelled out explicitly with
wenzelm@35436
    14
their full internal name.
wenzelm@35436
    15
wenzelm@35436
    16
Substantial INCOMPATIBILITY concerning low-level syntax declarations
wenzelm@35436
    17
and translations (translation rules and translation functions in ML).
wenzelm@35436
    18
Some hints on upgrading:
wenzelm@35260
    19
wenzelm@35260
    20
  - Many existing uses of 'syntax' and 'translations' can be replaced
wenzelm@35436
    21
    by more modern 'type_notation', 'notation' and 'abbreviation',
wenzelm@35436
    22
    which are independent of this issue.
wenzelm@35260
    23
wenzelm@35260
    24
  - 'translations' require markup within the AST; the term syntax
wenzelm@35260
    25
    provides the following special forms:
wenzelm@35260
    26
wenzelm@35260
    27
      CONST c   -- produces syntax version of constant c from context
wenzelm@35261
    28
      XCONST c  -- literally c, checked as constant from context
wenzelm@35261
    29
      c         -- literally c, if declared by 'syntax'
wenzelm@35261
    30
wenzelm@35261
    31
    Plain identifiers are treated as AST variables -- occasionally the
wenzelm@35261
    32
    system indicates accidental variables via the error "rhs contains
wenzelm@35261
    33
    extra variables".
wenzelm@35260
    34
wenzelm@35436
    35
    Type classes and type constructors are marked according to their
wenzelm@35436
    36
    concrete syntax.  Some old translations rules need to be written
wenzelm@35436
    37
    for the "type" category, using type constructor application
wenzelm@35436
    38
    instead of pseudo-term application of the default category
wenzelm@35436
    39
    "logic".
wenzelm@35436
    40
wenzelm@35260
    41
  - 'parse_translation' etc. in ML may use the following
wenzelm@35260
    42
    antiquotations:
wenzelm@35260
    43
wenzelm@35436
    44
      @{class_syntax c}   -- type class c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35436
    45
      @{term_syntax c}    -- type constructor c within parse tree / AST
wenzelm@35260
    46
      @{const_syntax c}   -- ML version of "CONST c" above
wenzelm@35260
    47
      @{syntax_const c}   -- literally c (checked wrt. 'syntax' declarations)
wenzelm@35260
    48
wenzelm@35436
    49
  - Literal types within 'typed_print_translations', i.e. those *not*
wenzelm@35436
    50
    represented as pseudo-terms are represented verbatim.  Use @{class
wenzelm@35436
    51
    c} or @{type_name c} here instead of the above syntax
wenzelm@35436
    52
    antiquotations.
wenzelm@35436
    53
wenzelm@35260
    54
Note that old non-authentic syntax was based on unqualified base
wenzelm@35436
    55
names, so all of the above "constant" names would coincide.  Recall
wenzelm@35436
    56
that 'print_syntax' and ML_command "set Syntax.trace_ast" help to
wenzelm@35436
    57
diagnose syntax problems.
wenzelm@35260
    58
wenzelm@35351
    59
* Type constructors admit general mixfix syntax, not just infix.
wenzelm@35351
    60
wenzelm@35613
    61
* Use of cumulative prems via "!" in some proof methods has been
wenzelm@35613
    62
discontinued (legacy feature).
wenzelm@35613
    63
wenzelm@35260
    64
haftmann@34170
    65
*** Pure ***
haftmann@34170
    66
wenzelm@35765
    67
* Local theory specifications may depend on extra type variables that
wenzelm@35765
    68
are not present in the result type -- arguments TYPE('a) :: 'a itself
wenzelm@35765
    69
are added internally.  For example:
wenzelm@35765
    70
wenzelm@35765
    71
  definition unitary :: bool where "unitary = (ALL (x::'a) y. x = y)"
wenzelm@35765
    72
haftmann@34170
    73
* Code generator: details of internal data cache have no impact on
haftmann@34170
    74
the user space functionality any longer.
haftmann@34170
    75
wenzelm@35129
    76
* Discontinued unnamed infix syntax (legacy feature for many years) --
wenzelm@35130
    77
need to specify constant name and syntax separately.  Internal ML
wenzelm@35130
    78
datatype constructors have been renamed from InfixName to Infix etc.
wenzelm@35130
    79
Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35129
    80
wenzelm@35413
    81
* Commands 'type_notation' and 'no_type_notation' declare type syntax
wenzelm@35413
    82
within a local theory context, with explicit checking of the
wenzelm@35413
    83
constructors involved (in contrast to the raw 'syntax' versions).
wenzelm@35413
    84
wenzelm@35681
    85
* Command 'typedecl' now works within a local theory context --
wenzelm@35681
    86
without introducing dependencies on parameters or assumptions, which
wenzelm@35681
    87
is not possible in Isabelle/Pure.
wenzelm@35681
    88
haftmann@34170
    89
haftmann@33993
    90
*** HOL ***
haftmann@33993
    91
wenzelm@35745
    92
* Command 'typedef' now works within a local theory context -- without
wenzelm@35745
    93
introducing dependencies on parameters or assumptions, which is not
wenzelm@35745
    94
possible in Isabelle/Pure/HOL.  Note that the logical environment may
wenzelm@35745
    95
contain multiple interpretations of local typedefs (with different
wenzelm@35745
    96
non-emptiness proofs), even in a global theory context.
wenzelm@35745
    97
wenzelm@35763
    98
* Theory Library/Coinductive_List has been removed -- superceded by
wenzelm@35763
    99
AFP/thys/Coinductive.
wenzelm@35763
   100
haftmann@35728
   101
* Split off theory Big_Operators containing setsum, setprod, Inf_fin, Sup_fin,
haftmann@35728
   102
Min, Max from theory Finite_Set.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35728
   103
haftmann@35372
   104
* Theory "Rational" renamed to "Rat", for consistency with "Nat", "Int" etc.
haftmann@35372
   105
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35372
   106
haftmann@35042
   107
* New set of rules "ac_simps" provides combined assoc / commute rewrites
haftmann@35042
   108
for all interpretations of the appropriate generic locales.
haftmann@35042
   109
haftmann@35050
   110
* Renamed theory "OrderedGroup" to "Groups" and split theory "Ring_and_Field"
haftmann@35050
   111
into theories "Rings" and "Fields";  for more appropriate and more
haftmann@35050
   112
consistent names suitable for name prefixes within the HOL theories.
haftmann@35050
   113
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35050
   114
haftmann@35084
   115
* Some generic constants have been put to appropriate theories:
haftmann@35084
   116
haftmann@35093
   117
    less_eq, less: Orderings
haftmann@35264
   118
    zero, one, plus, minus, uminus, times, abs, sgn: Groups
haftmann@35084
   119
    inverse, divide: Rings
haftmann@35084
   120
haftmann@35084
   121
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35084
   122
haftmann@35721
   123
* Class division_ring also requires proof of fact divide_inverse.  However instantiation
haftmann@35084
   124
of parameter divide has also been required previously.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35084
   125
haftmann@35032
   126
* More consistent naming of type classes involving orderings (and lattices):
haftmann@35027

haftmann@35032
   166
  The following slightly odd type classes have been moved to
haftmann@35032
   167
  a separate theory Library/Lattice_Algebras.thy:
haftmann@35032
   168
haftmann@35032
   169
    lordered_ab_group_add               ~> lattice_ab_group_add
haftmann@35032
   170
    lordered_ab_group_add_abs           ~> lattice_ab_group_add_abs
haftmann@35032
   171
    lordered_ab_group_add_meet          ~> semilattice_inf_ab_group_add
haftmann@35032
   172
    lordered_ab_group_add_join          ~> semilattice_sup_ab_group_add
haftmann@35032
   173
    lordered_ring                       ~> lattice_ring
haftmann@35032
   174
haftmann@35027
   175
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@35027
   176
haftmann@34962
   177
* HOLogic.strip_psplit: types are returned in syntactic order, similar
haftmann@34962
   178
to other strip and tuple operations.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34962
   179
haftmann@34946
   180
* Various old-style primrec specifications in the HOL theories have been
haftmann@34946
   181
replaced by new-style primrec, especially in theory List.  The corresponding
haftmann@34946
   182
constants now have authentic syntax.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34946
   183
haftmann@35276
   184
* Reorganized theory Multiset: swapped notation of pointwise and multiset order:
haftmann@35276
   185
  * pointwise ordering is instance of class order with standard syntax <= and <;
haftmann@35276
   186
  * multiset ordering has syntax <=# and <#; partial order properties are provided
haftmann@35276
   187
      by means of interpretation with prefix multiset_order.
haftmann@35276
   188
Less duplication, less historical organization of sections,
haftmann@35270
   189
conversion from associations lists to multisets, rudimentary code generation.
haftmann@35270
   190
Use insert_DiffM2 [symmetric] instead of elem_imp_eq_diff_union, if needed.
haftmann@35270
   191
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@34946
   192
wenzelm@35009
   193
* Reorganized theory Sum_Type; Inl and Inr now have authentic syntax.
wenzelm@35009
   194
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33993
   195
haftmann@33993
   196
* Code generation: ML and OCaml code is decorated with signatures.
haftmann@33993
   197
wenzelm@35009
   198
* Theory Complete_Lattice: lemmas top_def and bot_def have been
wenzelm@35009
   199
replaced by the more convenient lemmas Inf_empty and Sup_empty.
wenzelm@35009
   200
Dropped lemmas Inf_insert_simp and Sup_insert_simp, which are subsumed
wenzelm@35009
   201
by Inf_insert and Sup_insert.  Lemmas Inf_UNIV and Sup_UNIV replace
wenzelm@35009
   202
former Inf_Univ and Sup_Univ.  Lemmas inf_top_right and sup_bot_right
wenzelm@35009
   203
subsume inf_top and sup_bot respectively.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@35009
   204
wenzelm@35009
   205
* Theory Finite_Set and List: some lemmas have been generalized from
wenzelm@34076
   206
sets to lattices:
wenzelm@34076
   207
haftmann@34007
   208
  fun_left_comm_idem_inter      ~> fun_left_comm_idem_inf

haftmann@34007
   217
  UNION_fold_union              ~> SUPR_fold_sup
haftmann@34007
   218
wenzelm@35009
   219
* Theory List: added transpose.
wenzelm@35009
   220
wenzelm@35100
   221
* Renamed Library/Quotient.thy to Library/Quotient_Type.thy to avoid
wenzelm@35100
   222
clash with new theory Quotient in Main HOL.
wenzelm@35100
   223
huffman@35810
   224
* Library/Nat_Bijection.thy is a collection of bijective functions
huffman@35810
   225
between nat and other types, which supersedes the older libraries
huffman@35810
   226
Library/Nat_Int_Bij.thy and HOLCF/NatIso.thy.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
huffman@35810

* New proof method "smt" for a combination of first-order logic with
wenzelm@33842
   347
equality, linear and nonlinear (natural/integer/real) arithmetic, and
wenzelm@33842
   348
fixed-size bitvectors; there is also basic support for higher-order
wenzelm@33842
   349
features (esp. lambda abstractions).  It is an incomplete decision
wenzelm@33842
   350
procedure based on external SMT solvers using the oracle mechanism;
wenzelm@33842
   351
for the SMT solver Z3, this method is proof-producing.  Certificates
wenzelm@33842
   352
are provided to avoid calling the external solvers solely for
wenzelm@33842
   353
re-checking proofs.  Due to a remote SMT service there is no need for
wenzelm@33842
   354
installing SMT solvers locally.  See src/HOL/SMT.
wenzelm@33842
   355
wenzelm@33842
   356
* New commands to load and prove verification conditions generated by
wenzelm@33842
   357
the Boogie program verifier or derived systems (e.g. the Verifying C
wenzelm@33842
   358
Compiler (VCC) or Spec#).  See src/HOL/Boogie.
wenzelm@33842
   359
wenzelm@33842

* New counterexample generator tool 'nitpick' based on the Kodkod
wenzelm@33842
   361
relational model finder.  See src/HOL/Tools/Nitpick and
wenzelm@33842
   362

   365
compiler and to enumerate values of inductive predicates.
haftmann@33860
   366
haftmann@33860
   367
* A tabled implementation of the reflexive transitive closure.
haftmann@33860
   368
haftmann@33860
   369
* New implementation of quickcheck uses generic code generator;
haftmann@33860
   370
default generators are provided for all suitable HOL types, records
haftmann@33860
   371
and datatypes.  Old quickcheck can be re-activated importing theory

   372
Library/SML_Quickcheck.
haftmann@33860
   373
wenzelm@33843
   374
* New testing tool Mirabelle for automated proof tools.  Applies
wenzelm@33843
   375
several tools and tactics like sledgehammer, metis, or quickcheck, to
wenzelm@33843
   376
every proof step in a theory.  To be used in batch mode via the
wenzelm@33843
   377
"mirabelle" utility.
wenzelm@33843
   378
wenzelm@33843
   379
* New proof method "sos" (sum of squares) for nonlinear real
wenzelm@33843
   380
arithmetic (originally due to John Harison). It requires theory
wenzelm@33843
   381
Library/Sum_Of_Squares.  It is not a complete decision procedure but
wenzelm@33843
   382
works well in practice on quantifier-free real arithmetic with +, -,
wenzelm@33843
   383
*, ^, =, <= and <, i.e. boolean combinations of equalities and
wenzelm@33843
   384
inequalities between polynomials.  It makes use of external
wenzelm@33843
   385
semidefinite programming solvers.  Method "sos" generates a
wenzelm@33843
   386
certificate that can be pasted into the proof thus avoiding the need
wenzelm@33843
   387
to call an external tool every time the proof is checked.  See
wenzelm@33843

* New command 'atp_minimal' reduces result produced by Sledgehammer.
wenzelm@33843
   394
wenzelm@33843
   395
* New Sledgehammer option "Full Types" in Proof General settings menu.
wenzelm@33843
   396
Causes full type information to be output to the ATPs.  This slows
wenzelm@33843
   397
ATPs down considerably but eliminates a source of unsound "proofs"
wenzelm@33843
   398
that fail later.
wenzelm@33843
   399
wenzelm@33843
   400
* New method "metisFT": A version of metis that uses full type
wenzelm@33843
   401
information in order to avoid failures of proof reconstruction.
wenzelm@33843
   402
wenzelm@33843
   403
* New evaluator "approximate" approximates an real valued term using
wenzelm@33843
   404
the same method as the approximation method.
wenzelm@33843
   405
wenzelm@33843
   406
* Method "approximate" now supports arithmetic expressions as
wenzelm@33843
   407
boundaries of intervals and implements interval splitting and Taylor
wenzelm@33843
   408
series expansion.
wenzelm@33843
   409
wenzelm@33843
   410
* ML antiquotation @{code_datatype} inserts definition of a datatype

wenzelm@33843
   412
haftmann@33860

haftmann@33860
   418
haftmann@33860

    accordingly
wenzelm@33873
   427
  - former session NumberTheory now named Old_Number_Theory, including
wenzelm@33873
   428
    theories Legacy_GCD and Primes (prefer Number_Theory if possible)
wenzelm@33842
   429
  - moved theory Pocklington from src/HOL/Library to

   430
    src/HOL/Old_Number_Theory
haftmann@32479
   431
wenzelm@33873
   432
* Theory GCD includes functions Gcd/GCD and Lcm/LCM for the gcd and
wenzelm@33873
   433
lcm of finite and infinite sets. It is shown that they form a complete
haftmann@32600
   434
lattice.
haftmann@32600
   435
haftmann@32600
   436
* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of

div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
haftmann@32600
   438
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
haftmann@32600
   439
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
haftmann@32600
   440
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and

* Refinements to lattice classes and sets:
haftmann@32064
   445
  - less default intro/elim rules in locale variant, more default
haftmann@32064
   446
    intro/elim rules in class variant: more uniformity
wenzelm@33842
   447
  - lemma ge_sup_conv renamed to le_sup_iff, in accordance with
wenzelm@33842
   448
    le_inf_iff
wenzelm@33842
   449
  - dropped lemma alias inf_ACI for inf_aci (same for sup_ACI and
wenzelm@33842
   450
    sup_aci)
haftmann@32064
   451
  - renamed ACI to inf_sup_aci
haftmann@32600
   452
  - new class "boolean_algebra"
wenzelm@33842
   453
  - class "complete_lattice" moved to separate theory

   478
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Care is required when theorems Int_subset_iff or
wenzelm@33842
   479
Un_subset_iff are explicitly deleted as default simp rules; then also
wenzelm@33842

rewrite propositions with "S O R" --> "R O S". Proofs may occasionally
wenzelm@33842
   498
break, since the O_assoc rule was not rewritten like this.  Fix using
wenzelm@33842
   499
O_assoc[symmetric].  The same applies to the curried version "R OO S".

nipkow@33057
   501
* Function "Inv" is renamed to "inv_into" and function "inv" is now an
wenzelm@33842
   502
abbreviation for "inv_into UNIV".  Lemmas are renamed accordingly.
nipkow@32988
   503
INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@32988

haftmann@33860
   505
* Most rules produced by inductive and datatype package have mandatory
haftmann@33860
   506
prefixes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@31790
   507
wenzelm@33842
   508
* Changed "DERIV_intros" to a dynamic fact, which can be augmented by
wenzelm@33842
   509
the attribute of the same name.  Each of the theorems in the list
wenzelm@33842
   510
DERIV_intros assumes composition with an additional function and
wenzelm@33842
   511
matches a variable to the derivative, which has to be solved by the
wenzelm@33842
   512
Simplifier.  Hence (auto intro!: DERIV_intros) computes the derivative
wenzelm@33873
   513
of most elementary terms.  Former Maclauren.DERIV_tac and
wenzelm@33873
   514
Maclauren.deriv_tac should be replaced by (auto intro!: DERIV_intros).
wenzelm@33873
   515
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   516
haftmann@33860
   517
* Code generator attributes follow the usual underscore convention:
haftmann@33860
   518
    code_unfold     replaces    code unfold
haftmann@33860
   519
    code_post       replaces    code post
haftmann@33860
   520
    etc.
haftmann@33860
   521
  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31900

    sizechange -> size_change
krauss@33471

  INCOMPATIBILITY.
nipkow@33673

   529
INCOMPATIBILITY, use "undefined" directly.
wenzelm@33843
   530
haftmann@33860

* Renamed theorems:
haftmann@33860
   532
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1 -> Suc_eq_plus1
haftmann@33860
   533
    Suc_eq_add_numeral_1_left -> Suc_eq_plus1_left

haftmann@33860
   538
haftmann@33860

* Added theorem List.map_map as [simp].  Removed List.map_compose.
haftmann@33860
   540
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@33860
   541
haftmann@33860

   548
* Theory Representable defines a class "rep" of domains that are
wenzelm@33842
   549
representable (via an ep-pair) in the universal domain type "udom".
huffman@33825
   550
Instances are provided for all type constructors defined in HOLCF.
huffman@33825
   551
huffman@33825
   552
* The 'new_domain' command is a purely definitional version of the
huffman@33825
   553
domain package, for representable domains.  Syntax is identical to the
huffman@33825
   554
old domain package.  The 'new_domain' package also supports indirect
huffman@33825
   555
recursion using previously-defined type constructors.  See
wenzelm@33842
   556
src/HOLCF/ex/New_Domain.thy for examples.
wenzelm@33842
   557
wenzelm@33842
   558
* Method "fixrec_simp" unfolds one step of a fixrec-defined constant
huffman@33825
   559
on the left-hand side of an equation, and then performs
huffman@33825
   560
simplification.  Rewriting is done using rules declared with the
wenzelm@33842
   561
"fixrec_simp" attribute.  The "fixrec_simp" method is intended as a
wenzelm@33842
   562
replacement for "fixpat"; see src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for examples.
huffman@33825
   563
huffman@33825
   564
* The pattern-match compiler in 'fixrec' can now handle constructors
huffman@33825
   565
with HOL function types.  Pattern-match combinators for the Pair
huffman@33825
   566
constructor are pre-configured.
huffman@33825
   567
huffman@33825
   568
* The 'fixrec' package now produces better fixed-point induction rules
huffman@33825
   569
for mutually-recursive definitions:  Induction rules have conclusions
huffman@33825
   570
of the form "P foo bar" instead of "P <foo, bar>".
huffman@33825
   571
huffman@33825
   572
* The constant "sq_le" (with infix syntax "<<" or "\<sqsubseteq>") has
huffman@33825
   573
been renamed to "below".  The name "below" now replaces "less" in many
wenzelm@33842
   574
theorem names.  (Legacy theorem names using "less" are still supported
wenzelm@33842
   575
as well.)
huffman@33825
   576
huffman@33825
   577
* The 'fixrec' package now supports "bottom patterns".  Bottom
huffman@33825
   578
patterns can be used to generate strictness rules, or to make
huffman@33825
   579
functions more strict (much like the bang-patterns supported by the
wenzelm@33873
   580
Glasgow Haskell Compiler).  See src/HOLCF/ex/Fixrec_ex.thy for
wenzelm@33873
   581

wenzelm@33843
   587
errors and run-time exceptions, including detailed source positions.
wenzelm@33843
   588
wenzelm@33843
   589
* Structure Name_Space (formerly NameSpace) now manages uniquely
wenzelm@33843
   590
identified entries, with some additional information such as source
wenzelm@33843
   591
position, logical grouping etc.
wenzelm@33843
   592
wenzelm@33524
   593
* Theory and context data is now introduced by the simplified and
wenzelm@33524
   594
modernized functors Theory_Data, Proof_Data, Generic_Data.  Data needs
wenzelm@33524
   595
to be pure, but the old TheoryDataFun for mutable data (with explicit
wenzelm@33524
   596
copy operation) is still available for some time.
wenzelm@33524
   597
wenzelm@32742
   598
* Structure Synchronized (cf. src/Pure/Concurrent/synchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
   599
provides a high-level programming interface to synchronized state
wenzelm@32742
   600
variables with atomic update.  This works via pure function
wenzelm@32742
   601
application within a critical section -- its runtime should be as
wenzelm@32742
   602
short as possible; beware of deadlocks if critical code is nested,
wenzelm@32742
   603
either directly or indirectly via other synchronized variables!
wenzelm@32742
   604
wenzelm@32742
   605
* Structure Unsynchronized (cf. src/Pure/ML-Systems/unsynchronized.ML)
wenzelm@32742
   606
wraps raw ML references, explicitly indicating their non-thread-safe
wenzelm@32742
   607
behaviour.  The Isar toplevel keeps this structure open, to
wenzelm@32742
   608
accommodate Proof General as well as quick and dirty interactive
wenzelm@32742
   609
experiments with references.
wenzelm@32742
   610
wenzelm@32365
   611
* PARALLEL_CHOICE and PARALLEL_GOALS provide basic support for
wenzelm@32365
   612
parallel tactical reasoning.
wenzelm@32365
   613
wenzelm@32427
   614
* Tacticals Subgoal.FOCUS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PREMS, Subgoal.FOCUS_PARAMS
wenzelm@32427
   615
are similar to SUBPROOF, but are slightly more flexible: only the
wenzelm@32427
   616
specified parts of the subgoal are imported into the context, and the
wenzelm@32427
   617
body tactic may introduce new subgoals and schematic variables.
wenzelm@32427
   618
wenzelm@32427
   619
* Old tactical METAHYPS, which does not observe the proof context, has
wenzelm@32427
   620
been renamed to Old_Goals.METAHYPS and awaits deletion.  Use SUBPROOF
wenzelm@32427
   621
or Subgoal.FOCUS etc.
wenzelm@32216
   622
wenzelm@31971
   623
* Renamed functor TableFun to Table, and GraphFun to Graph.  (Since
wenzelm@31971
   624
functors have their own ML name space there is no point to mark them
wenzelm@31971
   625
separately.)  Minor INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31971
   626
wenzelm@31901
   627
* Renamed NamedThmsFun to Named_Thms.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31901
   628
wenzelm@33842
   629
* Renamed several structures FooBar to Foo_Bar.  Occasional,

   630
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@33842
   631
wenzelm@33843
   632
* Operations of structure Skip_Proof no longer require quick_and_dirty
wenzelm@33843
   633
mode, which avoids critical setmp.
wenzelm@33843
   634
wenzelm@31306
   635
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@33842
   636
combinators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
   637
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
   638
wenzelm@32151
   639
* Proper context for simpset_of, claset_of, clasimpset_of.  May fall
wenzelm@32151
   640
back on global_simpset_of, global_claset_of, global_clasimpset_of as

   641
last resort.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32151
   642
wenzelm@32092
   643
* Display.pretty_thm now requires a proper context (cf. former
wenzelm@32092
   644
ProofContext.pretty_thm).  May fall back on Display.pretty_thm_global
wenzelm@32092
   645
or even Display.pretty_thm_without_context as last resort.
wenzelm@32092
   646
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@32092
   647
wenzelm@32433
   648
* Discontinued Display.pretty_ctyp/cterm etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use

   656
(max. speedup factor 5.0).  See also Goal.parallel_proofs in ML and

IsaMakefile, not just hardwired "logics".
wenzelm@32326
   664
wenzelm@33842

   680
wenzelm@28504
   681
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
   682
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
   683
wenzelm@28504
   684
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
   685
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
   686
wenzelm@28504
   687
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
   688
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
   689
wenzelm@28915
   690
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
   691
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
   692
wenzelm@28504
   693
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
   694
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
   695
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
   696
wenzelm@28915
   697
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
   698
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
   699
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
   700
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
   701
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
   702
wenzelm@28504
   703
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
   704
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
   705
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
   706
wenzelm@28914
   707
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
   708
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
   709
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
   710
wenzelm@28914
   711
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
   712
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
   713
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
   714
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
   715
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
   716
wenzelm@29161
   717
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
   718
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
   719
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
   720
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   721
wenzelm@30845
   722
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
   723
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
   724

wenzelm@27599
   728
wenzelm@30845
   729
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
   730
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
   731
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
   732
ballarin@29253
   733
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   734
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   735
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   736
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   737
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   738
ballarin@29253
   739
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   740
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   741
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   742
ballarin@29253
   743
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   744
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
   745
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
   746
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
   747
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
   748
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
   749
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
   750
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   751
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   752
wenzelm@30845
   753
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   754
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   755
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   756
wenzelm@30845
   757
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   758
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   759
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   760
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   761
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   762
wenzelm@30845
   763
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   764
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   765
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   766
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   767
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   768
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845

notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   770
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   771
wenzelm@30845
   772
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   773
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   774
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   775
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   776
wenzelm@30845
   777
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   778
wenzelm@30845
   779
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   780
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   781
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   782
wenzelm@30845
   783
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   784
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   785
wenzelm@30845
   786
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   787
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   788
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   789
wenzelm@30845
   790
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   791
wenzelm@30845
   792
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   793
wenzelm@30845
   794
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   795
wenzelm@30845
   796
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   797
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   798
wenzelm@30845
   799
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   800
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   801
wenzelm@30845
   802
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   803
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   804
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   805
wenzelm@30845
   806
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   807
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   808
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   809
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   810
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   811
wenzelm@30845
   812
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   813
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   814
wenzelm@30845
   815
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   816
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   817
wenzelm@30845
   818
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   819
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   820
wenzelm@28114
   821
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   822
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   823
wenzelm@30845
   824
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   825
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   826
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   827
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   828
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   829
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   830
wenzelm@30845
   831
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   832
wenzelm@30845
   833
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   834
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   835
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   836
wenzelm@30845
   837
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   838
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   839
wenzelm@30845
   840
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   841
wenzelm@30845
   842
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   843
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   844
wenzelm@30845
   845
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   846
wenzelm@30845
   847
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   848
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   849
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   850
wenzelm@30845
   851
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   852
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   853
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   854
wenzelm@30845
   855
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   856
haftmann@30965
   857
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   858
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   859
wenzelm@30577
   860
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   861
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   862
kleing@29883
   863
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   864
wenzelm@30106
   865
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   866
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   867
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   868
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   869
kleing@29883
   870
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   871
wenzelm@30845
   872
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   873
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   874
wenzelm@30845
   875
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   876
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   877
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
   878
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
   879
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of

   880
higher-order unification.

wenzelm@27392
   886
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   887
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

*** HOL ***
haftmann@27104
   891
wenzelm@30845
   892
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   893
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   894
wenzelm@30845
   895
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   896
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   897
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   898
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   899
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   900
wenzelm@30845
   901
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   902
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   903
wenzelm@30845
   904
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   905
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   906
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   907
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   908
wenzelm@30845
   909
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   910
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   911
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   912
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   913
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   914
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   915
wenzelm@30845
   916
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   917
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   918
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also

wenzelm@30845
   923
wenzelm@30845
   924
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   925
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
   926
wenzelm@30845
   927
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
   928
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
   929
wenzelm@30845
   930
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also

   931
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
   932
wenzelm@30845
   933
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
   934
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
   935
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   936
wenzelm@30845
   937
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
   938
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
   939
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
   940
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further
wenzelm@30845
   941
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   942
wenzelm@30845
   943
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
   944
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
   945
wenzelm@30845
   946
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
   947
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
   948
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
   949
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
   950
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
   951
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
   952
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
   953
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
   954
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
   955
wenzelm@30845
   956
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
   957
wenzelm@30845
   958
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
   959
wenzelm@30845
   960
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
   961
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   962
wenzelm@30845
   963
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
   964
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
   965
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
   966
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
   967
wenzelm@30845

   993
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental

   994
functions sin, cos, tan, atan, ln, exp and the constant pi are

* If methods "eval" and "evaluation" encounter a structured proof
wenzelm@30845
  1059
state with !!/==>, only the conclusion is evaluated to True (if
wenzelm@30845
  1060
possible), avoiding strange error messages.
wenzelm@30845
  1061
wenzelm@30845
  1062
* Method "sizechange" automates termination proofs using (a
wenzelm@30845
  1063
modification of) the size-change principle.  Requires SAT solver.  See

variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1068
wenzelm@30845

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
  1071
wenzelm@30845
  1072
* New attribute "arith" for facts that should always be used
wenzelm@30845
  1073
automatically by arithmetic. It is intended to be used locally in
wenzelm@30845
  1074
proofs, e.g.
wenzelm@30845

* New classes "top" and "bot" with corresponding operations "top" and
wenzelm@30845
  1081
"bot" in theory Orderings; instantiation of class "complete_lattice"
wenzelm@30845

requires instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1083
wenzelm@30845
  1084
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an
wenzelm@30845
  1085

wenzelm@30845
  1086
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1087
wenzelm@30845
  1088
* Theory Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit
wenzelm@30845
  1089
induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
  1090
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
  1091
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1092
wenzelm@30845
  1093
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
  1094
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
  1095
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
  1096
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
  1097
wenzelm@30845
  1098
* Theory Relation: renamed "refl" to "refl_on", "reflexive" to "refl,
wenzelm@30845
  1099
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
  1100
wenzelm@30845
  1101
* Theory Finite_Set: added a new fold combinator of type
wenzelm@30845
  1102
nipkow@28855
  1103
  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
wenzelm@30845
  1104
wenzelm@30845
  1105
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845
  1106
which is now defined in terms of the new one and renamed to
wenzelm@30845
  1107
fold_image.
wenzelm@30845
  1108
wenzelm@30845
  1109
* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
  1110
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
  1111
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
  1112
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
  1113
wenzelm@30845
  1114
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
  1115
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
  1116
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

  1127
* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
  1128
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
  1129
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
  1130
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793
  1131
semiring_div.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  This involves the following theorem
wenzelm@27793

wenzelm@30845
  1198
univariate polynomials with coefficients of type 'a.  In addition to
wenzelm@30845
  1199
the standard ring operations, it also supports div and mod.  Code

* Theory Library/Inner_Product defines a class of real_inner for real
wenzelm@30845
  1203
inner product spaces, with an overloaded operation inner :: 'a => 'a
wenzelm@30845
  1204
=> real.  Class real_inner is a subclass of real_normed_vector from
wenzelm@30845
  1205
theory RealVector.
wenzelm@30845
  1206
wenzelm@30845

type 'a * 'b of several classes from RealVector and Inner_Product.
wenzelm@30845
  1209

  1213
addition to the field operations, numerals and case syntax are also
wenzelm@30845
  1214
supported.
wenzelm@30845

  1217
first diagonalization argument.
wenzelm@30845
  1218
wenzelm@30845
  1219
* Theory Library/GCD: Curried operations gcd, lcm (for nat) and zgcd,
wenzelm@27599
  1220
zlcm (for int); carried together from various gcd/lcm developements in
wenzelm@30845
  1221
the HOL Distribution.  Constants zgcd and zlcm replace former igcd and
wenzelm@30845
  1222
ilcm; corresponding theorems renamed accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY,
wenzelm@30845
  1223
may recover tupled syntax as follows:
haftmann@27556
  1224
haftmann@27556
  1225
    hide (open) const gcd
haftmann@27556
  1226
    abbreviation gcd where

      "gcd == (%(a, b). GCD.gcd a b)"
haftmann@27556
  1228

  1229
      GCD.gcd ("gcd '(_, _')")
haftmann@27556
  1230
wenzelm@30845
  1231
The same works for lcm, zgcd, zlcm.
wenzelm@30845
  1232
wenzelm@30845
  1233
* Theory Library/Nat_Infinity: added addition, numeral syntax and more
wenzelm@30845
  1234
instantiations for algebraic structures.  Removed some duplicate
wenzelm@30845
  1235
theorems.  Changes in simp rules.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
  1236
wenzelm@30845
  1237
* ML antiquotation @{code} takes a constant as argument and generates
haftmann@27651
  1238
corresponding code in background and inserts name of the corresponding
haftmann@27651
  1239
resulting ML value/function/datatype constructor binding in place.
haftmann@27651
  1240
All occurrences of @{code} with a single ML block are generated
haftmann@27651
  1241
simultaneously.  Provides a generic and safe interface for
wenzelm@30845
  1242
instrumentalizing code generation.  See
wenzelm@30845
  1243
src/HOL/Decision_Procs/Ferrack.thy for a more ambitious application.
wenzelm@30845
  1244
In future you ought to refrain from ad-hoc compiling generated SML
wenzelm@30845
  1245
code on the ML toplevel.  Note that (for technical reasons) @{code}
wenzelm@30845
  1246
cannot refer to constants for which user-defined serializations are
wenzelm@30845
  1247
set.  Refer to the corresponding ML counterpart directly in that
wenzelm@30845
  1248
cases.

* Command 'rep_datatype': instead of theorem names the command now
wenzelm@27122
  1251
takes a list of terms denoting the constructors of the type to be
wenzelm@27122
  1252
represented as datatype.  The characteristic theorems have to be
wenzelm@27122
  1253
proven.  INCOMPATIBILITY.  Also observe that the following theorems

Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.  Important note: the TimeLimit facility
wenzelm@30845

* High-level support for concurrent ML programming, see
wenzelm@29161
  1350
src/Pure/Cuncurrent.  The data-oriented model of "future values" is
wenzelm@29161
  1351
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161
  1352
computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
  1353
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@30845
  1354
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires

wenzelm@30845
  1357
* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845
  1358
context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@30845
  1359
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845
  1360
top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845
  1361
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the
wenzelm@30845
  1362
compiler at runtime; really global bindings need to be given outside a

theory.  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
  1364
wenzelm@30845
  1365
* Command 'ML_prf' is analogous to 'ML' but works within a proof
wenzelm@30845
  1366
context.  Top-level ML bindings are stored within the proof context in
wenzelm@30845
  1367
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@30845
  1368
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the

  1369
proof.  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2 or later.)
wenzelm@29161
  1370
wenzelm@30530
  1371
* Simplified ML attribute and method setup, cf. functions Attrib.setup
wenzelm@30845
  1372
and Method.setup, as well as Isar commands 'attribute_setup' and
wenzelm@30547
  1373
'method_setup'.  INCOMPATIBILITY for 'method_setup', need to simplify
wenzelm@30547
  1374
existing code accordingly, or use plain 'setup' together with old

  1375
Method.add_method.
wenzelm@30530
  1376
wenzelm@28294
  1377
* Simplified ML oracle interface Thm.add_oracle promotes 'a -> cterm
wenzelm@28294
  1378
to 'a -> thm, while results are always tagged with an authentic oracle
wenzelm@28294
  1379
name.  The Isar command 'oracle' is now polymorphic, no argument type
wenzelm@28294
  1380
is specified.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify existing oracle code
wenzelm@28294
  1381
accordingly.  Note that extra performance may be gained by producing
wenzelm@28294
  1382
the cterm carefully, avoiding slow Thm.cterm_of.
wenzelm@28294
  1383
wenzelm@30845
  1384
* Simplified interface for defining document antiquotations via
wenzelm@30845
  1385
ThyOutput.antiquotation, ThyOutput.output, and optionally
wenzelm@30845
  1386
ThyOutput.maybe_pretty_source.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to simplify user
wenzelm@30845
  1387
antiquotations accordingly, see src/Pure/Thy/thy_output.ML for common
wenzelm@30845
  1388
examples.
wenzelm@28099
  1389
wenzelm@30395
  1390
* More systematic treatment of long names, abstract name bindings, and
wenzelm@30395
  1391
name space operations.  Basic operations on qualified names have been
wenzelm@30399
  1392
move from structure NameSpace to Long_Name, e.g. Long_Name.base_name,
wenzelm@30395
  1393
Long_Name.append.  Old type bstring has been mostly replaced by
wenzelm@30395
  1394
abstract type binding (see structure Binding), which supports precise
wenzelm@30845
  1395
qualification by packages and local theory targets, as well as proper
wenzelm@30845
  1396
tracking of source positions.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to wrap old
wenzelm@30845
  1397
bstring values into Binding.name, or better pass through abstract
wenzelm@30399
  1398
bindings everywhere.  See further src/Pure/General/long_name.ML,

wenzelm@27269
  1411
wenzelm@30609
  1412
* Disposed old declarations, tactics, tactic combinators that refer to
wenzelm@30609
  1413
the simpset or claset of an implicit theory (such as Addsimps,
wenzelm@30609
  1414
Simp_tac, SIMPSET).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should use @{simpset} etc. in

  1416
explicit runtime argument.

  1417
wenzelm@30845
  1418
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@30845
  1419
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@30845
  1420
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@30845
  1421
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings

  1422
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

  1423
wenzelm@30845

  1425
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML

wenzelm@25994
  1476
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which

wenzelm@26323
  1482
wenzelm@26650

is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
  1485
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to

  1507
berghofe@26681
  1508
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
  1509
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.

berghofe@26681
  1515
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m

berghofe@26681
  1519
wenzelm@26718
  1520
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
  1521
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
  1522
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
  1523
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
  1524
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
  1525
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
  1526
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
  1527
wenzelm@26718
  1528
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
  1529
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is

  1584
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the

wenzelm@27067
  1617
out some operations that are done internally by the function package

* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  1622
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  1623
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  1624
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  1625
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  1626
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  1627
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  1628
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  1629
wenzelm@27067
  1630
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  1631
wenzelm@27067
  1632
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  1633
wenzelm@27067
  1634
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.

*** ML ***
wenzelm@25737
  1829
wenzelm@27067
  1830
* ML within Isar: antiquotation @{const name} or @{const
wenzelm@27067

name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
  1832

* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188
  1837
wenzelm@25737
  1838
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1839
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1840
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session
wenzelm@25737
  1841
management only; user-code should use print_mode_value,
wenzelm@25737
  1842
print_mode_active, PrintMode.setmp etc.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@25737
  1843
wenzelm@26874
  1844
* Functions system/system_out provide a robust way to invoke external
wenzelm@29161
  1845
shell commands, with propagation of interrupts (requires Poly/ML
wenzelm@29161
  1846

wenzelm@17754
  1892
*** General ***
wenzelm@17754
  1893
wenzelm@22826
  1894
* More uniform information about legacy features, notably a
wenzelm@22826
  1895
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1896
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:
wenzelm@23367
  1897
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1898
wenzelm@17918
  1899
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1900
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1901
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1902
wenzelm@17918
  1903
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1904
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1905
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1906
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1907
wenzelm@22871
  1908
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1909
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871
  1910
quotes.
wenzelm@19814
  1911
wenzelm@23888
  1912
* Theory loader: be more serious about observing the static theory
wenzelm@23888
  1913
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1914
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1915
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1916
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1917
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1918
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1919
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1920
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1921
wenzelm@23888
  1922
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1923
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1924
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1925
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1926
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1927
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1928
wenzelm@24187
  1929
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1930
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1931
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1932
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1933
wenzelm@24800
  1934
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1935
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1936
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1937
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1938
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1939
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1940
wenzelm@25034
  1941
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1942
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1943
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1944
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1945
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1946
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1947
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1948
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1949
wenzelm@17981
  1950
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1951
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1952
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1953
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1954
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1955
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1956
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1957
wenzelm@23379
  1958
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1959
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1960
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1961
wenzelm@20370
  1962
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1963
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1964
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1965
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1966
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  1967
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1968
wenzelm@21308
  1969
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1970
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1971
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1972
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1973
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1974
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1975
wenzelm@21960
  1976
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  1977
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1981
wenzelm@21717
  1982
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1983
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1984
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1985
wenzelm@17869
  1986
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1987
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1988
wenzelm@21717
  1989
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1990
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1991
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

wenzelm@24800
  1996
* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1997
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1998
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1999
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  2000
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  2001
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  2002
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  2003
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453

haftmann@20453
  2034
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453

      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  2036
haftmann@20453
  2037
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  2038
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453

haftmann@20453
  2040
    code_instance <and-list of instances>

haftmann@20453
  2047
haftmann@25199
  2048
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735

For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177

src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800

haftmann@20188
  2054
wenzelm@25129
  2055
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  2056
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  2057
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  2058
wenzelm@19254
  2059
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  2060
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  2061
wenzelm@19625
  2062
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  2063
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  2064
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  2065
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  2066
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  2067
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  2068
wenzelm@19711
  2069
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  2070
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  2071
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  2072
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  2073
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  2074
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  2075
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  2076
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  2077
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  2078
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  2079
wenzelm@24086
  2080
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  2081
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  2082
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  2083
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  2084
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  2085
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  2086
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  2087
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  2088
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  2089
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.

* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  2105
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  2106
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  2107
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  2108
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  2109
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  2110
order.
wenzelm@24086
  2111
wenzelm@24032
  2112
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  2113
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  2114
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  2115
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  2116
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  2117
wenzelm@24032
  2118
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  2119
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  2120
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  2121
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  2122
wenzelm@24032
  2123
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  2124
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  2125
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  2126
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  2127
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  2128
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  2129
wenzelm@23369
  2130
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  2131
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  2132
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  2133
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  2134
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  2135
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  2136
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  2137
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  2138
wenzelm@23369
  2139
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  2140
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  2141
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  2142
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  2143
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  2144
wenzelm@17865
  2145
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  2146
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  2147
wenzelm@17865
  2148
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  2149
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  2150
wenzelm@17865
  2151
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  2152
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  2153
wenzelm@18020
  2154
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  2155
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  2156
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  2157
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  2158
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  2159
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  2160
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  2161
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  2162
wenzelm@18020
  2163
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  2164
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  2165
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  2166
wenzelm@18020
  2167
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  2168
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  2169
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  2170
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  2171
wenzelm@20118
  2172
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  2173
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  2174
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  2175
wenzelm@20013
  2176
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  2177
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  2178
wenzelm@18308
  2179
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  2180
wenzelm@18308
  2181
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  2182
wenzelm@18540
  2183
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  2184
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  2185
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  2186
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  2187
wenzelm@18815
  2188
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  2189
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  2190
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  2191
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  2192
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  2193
kleing@24238
  2194
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238
  2195
premises of a theorem by n. Useful in conjunction with drule.
kleing@24238
  2196
wenzelm@19220
  2197
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  2198
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  2199
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  2200
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  2201
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  2202
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  2203
wenzelm@19814
  2204
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  2205
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  2206
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  2207
wenzelm@18901
  2208
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  2209
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  2210
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  2211
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  2212
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  2213
wenzelm@18901
  2214
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2215
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  2216
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  2217
wenzelm@18901
  2218
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2219
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  2220
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  2221
wenzelm@18901
  2222
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2223
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  2224
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  2225
      A
wenzelm@18901
  2226
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  2227
wenzelm@18910
  2228
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2229
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  2230
wenzelm@18901
  2231
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2232
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  2233
wenzelm@18910
  2234
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  2235
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  2236
wenzelm@18901
  2237
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  2238
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  2239
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  2240
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  2241
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  2242
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  2243
wenzelm@21447
  2244
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  2245
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  2246
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  2247
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  2248
wenzelm@19263
  2249
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  2250
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  2251
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  2252
wenzelm@18901
  2253
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  2254
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  2255
wenzelm@19587
  2256
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  2257
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  2258
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  2259
wenzelm@19682
  2260
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  2261
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  2262
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  2263
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  2264
wenzelm@21537
  2265
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  2266
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  2267
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  2268
wenzelm@21209
  2269
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  2270
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  2271
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  2272
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  2273
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  2274
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  2275
wenzelm@19665
  2276
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  2277
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  2278
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  2279
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  2280
wenzelm@19665
  2281
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  2282
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  2283
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  2284
wenzelm@21595
  2285
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  2286
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  2287
wenzelm@19363
  2288
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  2289
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  2290
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  2291
wenzelm@19083
  2292
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  2293
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  2294
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  2295
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  2296
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  2297
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  2298
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  2299
wenzelm@19083
  2300
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  2301
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  2302
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  2303
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  2304
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  2305
wenzelm@19682
  2306
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  2307
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  2308
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  2309
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  2310
wenzelm@24800
  2311
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  2312
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  2313
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  2314
wenzelm@24735
  2315
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  2316
wenzelm@24738
  2317
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  2318
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  2319
wenzelm@21735
  2320
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  2321
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  2322
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  2323
wenzelm@24800
  2324
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  2325
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  2326
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  2327
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  2328
ballarin@19931
  2329
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  2330
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  2331
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  2332
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  2333
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  2334
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  2335
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  2336
wenzelm@22126
  2337
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  2338
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  2339
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  2340
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  2341
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  2342
ballarin@19931
  2343
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  2344
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  2345
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  2346
ballarin@23920
  2347
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  2348
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  2349
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  2350
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  2351
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  2352
ballarin@23920
  2353
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  2354
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  2355
wenzelm@24800
  2356
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  2357
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  2358
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800

wenzelm@24859
  2360
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  2361
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  2362
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  2363
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  2364
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  2365
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  2366
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  2367
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  2368
wenzelm@24859
  2369
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  2370
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  2371
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  2372
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  2373
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  2374
wenzelm@24859
  2375
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  2376
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  2377
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  2378
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  2379
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  2380
wenzelm@18506
  2381
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  2382
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  2383
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  2384
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  2385
wenzelm@18506
  2386
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  2387
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  2388
wenzelm@24859
  2389
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  2390
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  2391
wenzelm@24859
  2392
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  2393
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  2394
wenzelm@20919
  2395
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  2396
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  2397
wenzelm@22126
  2398
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  2399
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  2400
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  2401
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  2402
  
wenzelm@18536
  2403
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  2404
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  2405
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  2406
wenzelm@18694
  2407
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  2408
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  2409
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  2410
wenzelm@18694
  2411
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  2412
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  2413
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  2414
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  2415
wenzelm@18536
  2416
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  2417
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  2418
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  2419
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  2420
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  2421
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  2422
wenzelm@18536
  2423
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  2424
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  2425
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  2426
wenzelm@20582
  2427
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  2428
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  2429
wenzelm@24800
  2430
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by
wenzelm@24800
  2431
default; use '!' option for full details.

* Method "metis" proves goals by applying the Metis general-purpose
wenzelm@25129
  2437
resolution prover (see also http://gilith.com/software/metis/).
wenzelm@25129
  2438
Examples are in the directory MetisExamples.  WARNING: the

* Command 'sledgehammer' invokes external automatic theorem provers as
wenzelm@25129
  2443
background processes.  It generates calls to the "metis" method if
wenzelm@25129
  2444
successful. These can be pasted into the proof.  Users do not have to

  2454
* New constant "undefined" with axiom "undefined x = undefined".
haftmann@25184
  2455
haftmann@25184
  2456
* Added class "HOL.eq", allowing for code generation with polymorphic
haftmann@25184

haftmann@25184
  2458
haftmann@25184
  2459
* Some renaming of class constants due to canonical name prefixing in
haftmann@25184

  2483
INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  2484
haftmann@25184
  2485
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  2486
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  2487
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  2488
names.
haftmann@25184
  2489
haftmann@25184
  2490
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  2491
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  2492
haftmann@25184
  2493
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  2494
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  2495
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  2496
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  2497
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  2498
haftmann@25184
  2499
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  2500
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  2501
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  2502
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  2503
haftmann@25184
  2504
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  2505
haftmann@25184
  2506
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  2507
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  2508
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  2509
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  2510
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2511
haftmann@25184
  2512
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  2513
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2514
haftmann@25184
  2515
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  2516
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  2517
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2518
haftmann@25184
  2519
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  2520
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  2521
haftmann@25184
  2522
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184

for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  2524
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  2525
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  2526
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  2527
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184

INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  2533
haftmann@25184
  2534
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  2535
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  2536
haftmann@25184
  2537
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  2538
haftmann@25184
  2539
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184

    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  2541
haftmann@25184
  2542
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named

  2543
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  2544
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"
haftmann@25184
  2545
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  2546
haftmann@25184
  2547
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
