    12 <h3>HOLCF: A higher-order version of LCF based on Isabelle/HOL</h3>
    13 
    14 HOLCF is the definitional extension of Church's Higher-Order Logic with
    15 Scott's Logic for Computable Functions that has been implemented in the
    16 theorem prover Isabelle.  This results in a flexible setup for reasoning
    17 about functional programs. HOLCF supports standard domain theory (in particular
    18 fixpoint reasoning and recursive domain equations) but also coinductive
    19 arguments about lazy datatypes.
