1 Subject: Announcing Isabelle2003

2 To: isabelle-users@cl.cam.ac.uk

4 Isabelle2003 is now available.

6 This release provides many improvements and a few substantial advances over

7 Isabelle2002. The most prominent highlights of Isabelle2003 are as follows

8 (see the NEWS of the distribution for more details):

10 * New framework for extracting programs from constructive proofs in HOL.

11 (Berghofer)

13 * Improved simplifier. The premises of a goal are completely

14 interreduced, ie simplified wrt each other. (Berghofer)

16 * Presburger arithmetic. Method arith can deal with quantified formulae over

17 nat and int, and with mod, div and dvd wrt a numeral. (Chaieb and Nipkow)

19 * New command to find all rules whose conclusion matches the current goal.

21 * New command to trace why unification failed.

23 * Locales (named proof contexts). The new implementation is fully

24 integrated with Isar's notion of proof context, and locale specifications

25 produce predicate definitions that allow to work with locales in more

26 flexible ways. (Wenzel)

28 * HOL/Algebra: proofs in classical algebra. Intended as a base for all

29 algebraic developments in HOL. Currently covers group and ring theory.

30 (Ballarin, Kammüller, Paulson)

32 * HOL/Complex defines the type "complex" of the complex numbers, with numeric

33 constants and some complex analysis, including nonstandard analysis. The

34 image HOL-Complex should be used for developments involving the real

35 numbers too. Gauge integration and hyperreal logarithms have recently

36 been added. (Fleuriot)

38 * HOL/NumberTheory: added Gauss's law of quadratic reciprocity. (Avigad,

39 Gray and Kramer)

41 * ZF/Constructible: Gödel's proof of the relative consistency of the axiom

42 of choice is mechanized using Isabelle/ZF, following Kunen's well-known

43 textbook "Set Theory". (Paulson)
