wenzelm@31547
     9
* Discontinued old form of "escaped symbols" such as \\<forall>.  Only
wenzelm@31547
    10
one backslash should be used, even in ML sources.

    14
wenzelm@31547
    15
* On instantiation of classes, remaining undefined class parameters
wenzelm@31547
    16
are formally declared.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

wenzelm@31547
    21
* Class semiring_div requires superclass no_zero_divisors and proof of
wenzelm@31547
    22
div_mult_mult1; theorems div_mult_mult1, div_mult_mult2,
wenzelm@31547
    23
div_mult_mult1_if, div_mult_mult1 and div_mult_mult2 have been
wenzelm@31547
    24
generalized to class semiring_div, subsuming former theorems
wenzelm@31547
    25
zdiv_zmult_zmult1, zdiv_zmult_zmult1_if, zdiv_zmult_zmult1 and
wenzelm@31547
    26
zdiv_zmult_zmult2.  div_mult_mult1 is now [simp] by default.
wenzelm@31547
    27
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
    28
wenzelm@31547
    29
* Power operations on relations and functions are now one dedicate
wenzelm@31547
    30
constant compow with infix syntax "^^".  Power operations on
wenzelm@31547
    31
multiplicative monoids retains syntax "^" and is now defined generic
wenzelm@31547
    32
in class power.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@31547
    33
wenzelm@31547
    34
* ML antiquotation @{code_datatype} inserts definition of a datatype
wenzelm@31547
    35
generated by the code generator; see Predicate.thy for an example.
wenzelm@31547
    36
wenzelm@31547
    37
* New method "linarith" invokes existing linear arithmetic decision
wenzelm@31547
    38
procedure only.
haftmann@31481
    39
haftmann@31624
    40
* Implementation of quickcheck using generic code generator; default generators
haftmann@31624
    41
are provided for all suitable HOL types, records and datatypes.
haftmann@31624
    42
haftmann@31643
    43
* Constants Set.Pow and Set.image now with authentic syntax; object-logic definitions
haftmann@31643
    44
Set.Pow_def and Set.image_def.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@31643

wenzelm@31304
    47
*** ML ***
wenzelm@31304
    48
wenzelm@31306
    49
* Eliminated old Attrib.add_attributes, Method.add_methods and related
wenzelm@31306
    50
cominators for "args".  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to use simplified
wenzelm@31306
    51
Attrib/Method.setup introduced in Isabelle2009.
wenzelm@31304
    52
wenzelm@31304

*** System ***
wenzelm@31308
    55
wenzelm@31308
    56
* Discontinued support for Poly/ML 4.x versions.
wenzelm@31308
    57
wenzelm@31317
    58
* Removed "compress" option from isabelle-process and isabelle usedir;
wenzelm@31317
    59
this is always enabled.

wenzelm@27599
    66
*** General ***
wenzelm@27599
    67
wenzelm@28504
    68
* Simplified main Isabelle executables, with less surprises on
wenzelm@28504
    69
case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28504
    70
wenzelm@28504
    71
  - The main Isabelle tool wrapper is now called "isabelle" instead of
wenzelm@28504
    72
    "isatool."
wenzelm@28504
    73
wenzelm@28504
    74
  - The former "isabelle" alias for "isabelle-process" has been
wenzelm@28504
    75
    removed (should rarely occur to regular users).
wenzelm@28504
    76
wenzelm@28915
    77
  - The former "isabelle-interface" and its alias "Isabelle" have been
wenzelm@28915
    78
    removed (interfaces are now regular Isabelle tools).
wenzelm@28504
    79
wenzelm@28504
    80
Within scripts and make files, the Isabelle environment variables
wenzelm@28504
    81
ISABELLE_TOOL and ISABELLE_PROCESS replace old ISATOOL and ISABELLE,
wenzelm@28504
    82
respectively.  (The latter are still available as legacy feature.)
wenzelm@28504
    83
wenzelm@28915
    84
The old isabelle-interface wrapper could react in confusing ways if
wenzelm@28915
    85
the interface was uninstalled or changed otherwise.  Individual
wenzelm@28915
    86
interface tool configuration is now more explicit, see also the
wenzelm@28915
    87
Isabelle system manual.  In particular, Proof General is now available
wenzelm@28915
    88
via "isabelle emacs".
wenzelm@28504
    89
wenzelm@28504
    90
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt derivative scripts.  Users may need to
wenzelm@28504
    91
purge installed copies of Isabelle executables and re-run "isabelle
wenzelm@28504
    92
install -p ...", or use symlinks.
wenzelm@28504
    93
wenzelm@28914
    94
* The default for ISABELLE_HOME_USER is now ~/.isabelle instead of the
wenzelm@30845
    95
old ~/isabelle, which was slightly non-standard and apt to cause
wenzelm@30845
    96
surprises on case-insensitive file-systems (such as Mac OS).
wenzelm@28914
    97
wenzelm@28914
    98
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to move existing ~/isabelle/etc,
wenzelm@28914
    99
~/isabelle/heaps, ~/isabelle/browser_info to the new place.  Special
wenzelm@28914
   100
care is required when using older releases of Isabelle.  Note that
wenzelm@28914
   101
ISABELLE_HOME_USER can be changed in Isabelle/etc/settings of any
wenzelm@30845
   102
Isabelle distribution, in order to use the new ~/.isabelle uniformly.
wenzelm@28914
   103
wenzelm@29161
   104
* Proofs of fully specified statements are run in parallel on
wenzelm@30845
   105
multi-core systems.  A speedup factor of 2.5 to 3.2 can be expected on
wenzelm@30845
   106
a regular 4-core machine, if the initial heap space is made reasonably
wenzelm@30845
   107
large (cf. Poly/ML option -H).  (Requires Poly/ML 5.2.1 or later.)
wenzelm@30845
   108
wenzelm@30845
   109
* The main reference manuals ("isar-ref", "implementation", and
wenzelm@30845
   110
"system") have been updated and extended.  Formally checked references
wenzelm@30845
   111
as hyperlinks are now available uniformly.
wenzelm@30845
   112
wenzelm@30163
   113
wenzelm@27599
   114
*** Pure ***
wenzelm@27599
   115
wenzelm@30845
   116
* Complete re-implementation of locales.  INCOMPATIBILITY in several
wenzelm@30845
   117
respects.  The most important changes are listed below.  See the
wenzelm@30845
   118
Tutorial on Locales ("locales" manual) for details.
ballarin@29253
   119
ballarin@29253
   120
- In locale expressions, instantiation replaces renaming.  Parameters
ballarin@29253
   121
must be declared in a for clause.  To aid compatibility with previous
ballarin@29253
   122
parameter inheritance, in locale declarations, parameters that are not
ballarin@29253
   123
'touched' (instantiation position "_" or omitted) are implicitly added
ballarin@29253
   124
with their syntax at the beginning of the for clause.
ballarin@29253
   125
ballarin@29253
   126
- Syntax from abbreviations and definitions in locales is available in
ballarin@29253
   127
locale expressions and context elements.  The latter is particularly
ballarin@29253
   128
useful in locale declarations.
ballarin@29253
   129
ballarin@29253
   130
- More flexible mechanisms to qualify names generated by locale
ballarin@29253
   131
expressions.  Qualifiers (prefixes) may be specified in locale
wenzelm@30728
   132
expressions, and can be marked as mandatory (syntax: "name!:") or
wenzelm@30728
   133
optional (syntax "name?:").  The default depends for plain "name:"
wenzelm@30728
   134
depends on the situation where a locale expression is used: in
wenzelm@30728
   135
commands 'locale' and 'sublocale' prefixes are optional, in
wenzelm@30845
   136
'interpretation' and 'interpret' prefixes are mandatory.  The old
wenzelm@30728
   137
implicit qualifiers derived from the parameter names of a locale are
wenzelm@30728
   138
no longer generated.
wenzelm@30106
   139
wenzelm@30845
   140
- Command "sublocale l < e" replaces "interpretation l < e".  The
wenzelm@30106
   141
instantiation clause in "interpretation" and "interpret" (square
wenzelm@30106
   142
brackets) is no longer available.  Use locale expressions.
ballarin@29253
   143
wenzelm@30845
   144
- When converting proof scripts, mandatory qualifiers in
wenzelm@30728
   145
'interpretation' and 'interpret' should be retained by default, even
wenzelm@30845
   146
if this is an INCOMPATIBILITY compared to former behavior.  In the
wenzelm@30845
   147
worst case, use the "name?:" form for non-mandatory ones.  Qualifiers
wenzelm@30845
   148
in locale expressions range over a single locale instance only.
wenzelm@30845
   149
wenzelm@30845
   150
- Dropped locale element "includes".  This is a major INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   151
In existing theorem specifications replace the includes element by the
wenzelm@30845
   152
respective context elements of the included locale, omitting those
wenzelm@30845
   153
that are already present in the theorem specification.  Multiple
wenzelm@30845
   154
assume elements of a locale should be replaced by a single one
wenzelm@30845
   155
involving the locale predicate.  In the proof body, declarations (most
wenzelm@30845
   156
notably theorems) may be regained by interpreting the respective
wenzelm@30845
   157
locales in the proof context as required (command "interpret").
wenzelm@30845
   158
wenzelm@30845
   159
If using "includes" in replacement of a target solely because the
wenzelm@30845
   160
parameter types in the theorem are not as general as in the target,
wenzelm@30845
   161
consider declaring a new locale with additional type constraints on
wenzelm@30845
   162
the parameters (context element "constrains").
wenzelm@30845
   163
wenzelm@30845
   164
- Discontinued "locale (open)".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   165
wenzelm@30845
   166
- Locale interpretation commands no longer attempt to simplify goal.
wenzelm@30845
   167
INCOMPATIBILITY: in rare situations the generated goal differs.  Use
wenzelm@30845
   168
methods intro_locales and unfold_locales to clarify.
wenzelm@30845
   169
wenzelm@30845
   170
- Locale interpretation commands no longer accept interpretation
wenzelm@30845
   171
attributes.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   172
wenzelm@30845
   173
* Class declaration: so-called "base sort" must not be given in import
wenzelm@30845
   174
list any longer, but is inferred from the specification.  Particularly
wenzelm@30845
   175
in HOL, write
wenzelm@30845
   176
wenzelm@30845
   177
    class foo = ...
wenzelm@30845
   178
wenzelm@30845
   179
instead of
wenzelm@30845
   180
wenzelm@30845
   181
    class foo = type + ...
wenzelm@30845
   182
wenzelm@30845
   183
* Class target: global versions of theorems stemming do not carry a
wenzelm@30845
   184
parameter prefix any longer.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   185
wenzelm@30845
   186
* Class 'instance' command no longer accepts attached definitions.
wenzelm@30845
   187
INCOMPATIBILITY, use proper 'instantiation' target instead.
wenzelm@30845
   188
wenzelm@30845
   189
* Recovered hiding of consts, which was accidentally broken in
wenzelm@30845
   190
Isabelle2007.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, ``hide const c'' really
wenzelm@30845
   191
makes c inaccessible; consider using ``hide (open) const c'' instead.
wenzelm@30845
   192
wenzelm@30845
   193
* Slightly more coherent Pure syntax, with updated documentation in
wenzelm@30845
   194
isar-ref manual.  Removed locales meta_term_syntax and
wenzelm@30845
   195
meta_conjunction_syntax: TERM and &&& (formerly &&) are now permanent,
wenzelm@30845
   196
INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations.  Note that &&& should not be used
wenzelm@30845
   197
directly in regular applications.
wenzelm@30845
   198
wenzelm@30845
   199
* There is a new syntactic category "float_const" for signed decimal
wenzelm@30845
   200
fractions (e.g. 123.45 or -123.45).
wenzelm@30845
   201
wenzelm@30845
   202
* Removed exotic 'token_translation' command.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML
wenzelm@30845
   203
interface with 'setup' command instead.
wenzelm@30845
   204
wenzelm@30845
   205
* Command 'local_setup' is similar to 'setup', but operates on a local
wenzelm@30845
   206
theory context.
haftmann@27104
   207
wenzelm@28114
   208
* The 'axiomatization' command now only works within a global theory
wenzelm@28114
   209
context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@28114
   210
wenzelm@30845
   211
* Goal-directed proof now enforces strict proof irrelevance wrt. sort
wenzelm@30845
   212
hypotheses.  Sorts required in the course of reasoning need to be
wenzelm@30845
   213
covered by the constraints in the initial statement, completed by the
wenzelm@30845
   214
type instance information of the background theory.  Non-trivial sort
wenzelm@30845
   215
hypotheses, which rarely occur in practice, may be specified via
wenzelm@30845
   216
vacuous propositions of the form SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::c).  For example:
wenzelm@30845
   217
wenzelm@30845
   218
  lemma assumes "SORT_CONSTRAINT('a::empty)" shows False ...
wenzelm@30845
   219
wenzelm@30845
   220
The result contains an implicit sort hypotheses as before --
wenzelm@30845
   221
SORT_CONSTRAINT premises are eliminated as part of the canonical rule
wenzelm@30845
   222
normalization.
wenzelm@30845
   223
wenzelm@30845
   224
* Generalized Isar history, with support for linear undo, direct state
wenzelm@30845
   225
addressing etc.
wenzelm@30845
   226
wenzelm@30845
   227
* Changed defaults for unify configuration options:
wenzelm@30845
   228
wenzelm@30845
   229
  unify_trace_bound = 50 (formerly 25)
wenzelm@30845
   230
  unify_search_bound = 60 (formerly 30)
wenzelm@30845
   231
wenzelm@30845
   232
* Different bookkeeping for code equations (INCOMPATIBILITY):
wenzelm@30845
   233
wenzelm@30845
   234
  a) On theory merge, the last set of code equations for a particular
wenzelm@30845
   235
     constant is taken (in accordance with the policy applied by other
wenzelm@30845
   236
     parts of the code generator framework).
wenzelm@30845
   237
wenzelm@30845
   238
  b) Code equations stemming from explicit declarations (e.g. code
wenzelm@30845
   239
     attribute) gain priority over default code equations stemming
wenzelm@30845
   240
     from definition, primrec, fun etc.
wenzelm@30845
   241
wenzelm@30845
   242
* Keyword 'code_exception' now named 'code_abort'.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   243
haftmann@30965
   244
* Unified theorem tables for both code generators.  Thus [code
wenzelm@30845
   245
func] has disappeared and only [code] remains.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30577
   246
wenzelm@30577
   247
* Command 'find_consts' searches for constants based on type and name
wenzelm@30577
   248
patterns, e.g.
kleing@29883
   249
kleing@29883
   250
    find_consts "_ => bool"
kleing@29883
   251
wenzelm@30106
   252
By default, matching is against subtypes, but it may be restricted to
wenzelm@30728
   253
the whole type.  Searching by name is possible.  Multiple queries are
wenzelm@30106
   254
conjunctive and queries may be negated by prefixing them with a
wenzelm@30106
   255
hyphen:
kleing@29883
   256
kleing@29883
   257
    find_consts strict: "_ => bool" name: "Int" -"int => int"
kleing@29861
   258
wenzelm@30845
   259
* New 'find_theorems' criterion "solves" matches theorems that
wenzelm@30845
   260
directly solve the current goal (modulo higher-order unification).
wenzelm@30845
   261
wenzelm@30845
   262
* Auto solve feature for main theorem statements: whenever a new goal
wenzelm@30845
   263
is stated, "find_theorems solves" is called; any theorems that could
wenzelm@30845
   264
solve the lemma directly are listed as part of the goal state.
wenzelm@30845
   265
Cf. associated options in Proof General Isabelle settings menu,
wenzelm@30845
   266
enabled by default, with reasonable timeout for pathological cases of

   267
higher-order unification.

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@27381
   271
wenzelm@27381
   272
* Antiquotation @{lemma} now imitates a regular terminal proof,
wenzelm@27392
   273
demanding keyword 'by' and supporting the full method expression
wenzelm@27519
   274
syntax just like the Isar command 'by'.

   279
* Integrated main parts of former image HOL-Complex with HOL.  Entry
wenzelm@30845
   280
points Main and Complex_Main remain as before.
wenzelm@30845
   281
wenzelm@30845
   282
* Logic image HOL-Plain provides a minimal HOL with the most important
wenzelm@30845
   283
tools available (inductive, datatype, primrec, ...).  This facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   284
experimentation and tool development.  Note that user applications
wenzelm@30845
   285
(and library theories) should never refer to anything below theory
wenzelm@30845
   286
Main, as before.
wenzelm@30845
   287
wenzelm@30845
   288
* Logic image HOL-Main stops at theory Main, and thus facilitates
wenzelm@30845
   289
experimentation due to shorter build times.
wenzelm@30845
   290
wenzelm@30845
   291
* Logic image HOL-NSA contains theories of nonstandard analysis which
wenzelm@30845
   292
were previously part of former HOL-Complex.  Entry point Hyperreal
wenzelm@30845
   293
remains valid, but theories formerly using Complex_Main should now use
wenzelm@30845
   294
new entry point Hypercomplex.
wenzelm@30845
   295
wenzelm@30845
   296
* Generic ATP manager for Sledgehammer, based on ML threads instead of
wenzelm@30845
   297
Posix processes.  Avoids potentially expensive forking of the ML
wenzelm@30845
   298
process.  New thread-based implementation also works on non-Unix
wenzelm@30845
   299
platforms (Cygwin).  Provers are no longer hardwired, but defined
wenzelm@30845
   300
within the theory via plain ML wrapper functions.  Basic Sledgehammer
wenzelm@30845
   301
commands are covered in the isar-ref manual.
wenzelm@30845
   302
wenzelm@30845
   303
* Wrapper scripts for remote SystemOnTPTP service allows to use
wenzelm@30845
   304
sledgehammer without local ATP installation (Vampire etc.). Other
wenzelm@30845
   305
provers may be included via suitable ML wrappers, see also

   306
src/HOL/ATP_Linkup.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   307
wenzelm@30845
   308

   309
menu.
wenzelm@30845
   310
wenzelm@30845
   311
* The metis method no longer fails because the theorem is too trivial
wenzelm@30845
   312
(contains the empty clause).
wenzelm@30845
   313
wenzelm@30845
   314
* The metis method now fails in the usual manner, rather than raising
wenzelm@30845
   315
an exception, if it determines that it cannot prove the theorem.
wenzelm@30845
   316
wenzelm@30845
   317
* Method "coherent" implements a prover for coherent logic (see also
wenzelm@30845
   318
src/Tools/coherent.ML).
wenzelm@30845
   319
wenzelm@30845
   320
* Constants "undefined" and "default" replace "arbitrary".  Usually
wenzelm@30845
   321
"undefined" is the right choice to replace "arbitrary", though
wenzelm@30845
   322
logically there is no difference.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   323
wenzelm@30845
   324
* Command "value" now integrates different evaluation mechanisms.  The
wenzelm@30845
   325
result of the first successful evaluation mechanism is printed.  In
wenzelm@30845
   326
square brackets a particular named evaluation mechanisms may be
wenzelm@30845
   327
specified (currently, [SML], [code] or [nbe]).  See further

   328
src/HOL/ex/Eval_Examples.thy.
wenzelm@30845
   329
wenzelm@30845
   330
* Normalization by evaluation now allows non-leftlinear equations.
wenzelm@30845
   331
Declare with attribute [code nbe].
wenzelm@30845
   332
wenzelm@30845
   333
* Methods "case_tac" and "induct_tac" now refer to the very same rules
wenzelm@30845
   334
as the structured Isar versions "cases" and "induct", cf. the
wenzelm@30845
   335
corresponding "cases" and "induct" attributes.  Mutual induction rules
wenzelm@30845
   336
are now presented as a list of individual projections
wenzelm@30845
   337
(e.g. foo_bar.inducts for types foo and bar); the old format with
wenzelm@30845
   338
explicit HOL conjunction is no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, in
wenzelm@30845
   339
rare situations a different rule is selected --- notably nested tuple
wenzelm@30845
   340
elimination instead of former prod.exhaust: use explicit (case_tac t
wenzelm@30845
   341
rule: prod.exhaust) here.
wenzelm@30845
   342
wenzelm@30845
   343
* Attributes "cases", "induct", "coinduct" support "del" option.
wenzelm@30845
   344
wenzelm@30845
   345
* Removed fact "case_split_thm", which duplicates "case_split".
wenzelm@30845
   346
wenzelm@30845
   347
* The option datatype has been moved to a new theory Option.  Renamed
wenzelm@30845
   348
option_map to Option.map, and o2s to Option.set, INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   349
wenzelm@30845
   350
* New predicate "strict_mono" classifies strict functions on partial
wenzelm@30845
   351
orders.  With strict functions on linear orders, reasoning about
wenzelm@30845
   352
(in)equalities is facilitated by theorems "strict_mono_eq",
wenzelm@30845
   353
"strict_mono_less_eq" and "strict_mono_less".
wenzelm@30845
   354
wenzelm@30845
   355
* Some set operations are now proper qualified constants with

method "approximation".  It proves formulas on real values by using
wenzelm@30845
   380
interval arithmetic.  In the formulas are also the transcendental
wenzelm@30845
   381
functions sin, cos, tan, atan, ln, exp and the constant pi are

variable occurs at most once in let expression body.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   455
wenzelm@30845
   456
* Method "arith": Linear arithmetic now ignores all inequalities when

fast_arith_neq_limit is exceeded, instead of giving up entirely.
wenzelm@30845
   458
wenzelm@30845

"bot" in theory Orderings; instantiation of class "complete_lattice"
wenzelm@30845

requires instantiation of classes "top" and "bot".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   470
wenzelm@30845
   471
* Changed definition lemma "less_fun_def" in order to provide an
wenzelm@30845

   473
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845

   475
* Theory Orderings: class "wellorder" moved here, with explicit
wenzelm@30845
   476
induction rule "less_induct" as assumption.  For instantiation of
wenzelm@30845
   477
"wellorder" by means of predicate "wf", use rule wf_wellorderI.
wenzelm@30845
   478
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   479
wenzelm@30845
   480
* Theory Orderings: added class "preorder" as superclass of "order".
wenzelm@27793
   481
INCOMPATIBILITY: Instantiation proofs for order, linorder
wenzelm@27793
   482
etc. slightly changed.  Some theorems named order_class.* now named
wenzelm@27793
   483
preorder_class.*.
wenzelm@27793
   484
wenzelm@30845
   485
* Theory Relation: renamed "refl" to "refl_on", "reflexive" to "refl,
wenzelm@30845
   486
"diag" to "Id_on".
wenzelm@30845
   487
wenzelm@30845

  ('a => 'b => 'b) => 'b => 'a set => 'b
wenzelm@30845
   491
wenzelm@30845
   492
Occasionally this is more convenient than the old fold combinator
wenzelm@30845

   494
fold_image.
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
   496
* Theories Ring_and_Field and OrderedGroup: The lemmas "group_simps"
wenzelm@30845
   497
and "ring_simps" have been replaced by "algebra_simps" (which can be
wenzelm@30845
   498
extended with further lemmas!).  At the moment both still exist but
wenzelm@30845
   499
the former will disappear at some point.
wenzelm@30845
   500
wenzelm@30845
   501
* Theory Power: Lemma power_Suc is now declared as a simp rule in
wenzelm@30845
   502
class recpower.  Type-specific simp rules for various recpower types
wenzelm@30845
   503
have been removed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, rename old lemmas as follows:

* Theories Ring_and_Field and Divides: Definition of "op dvd" has been
wenzelm@27793
   515
moved to separate class dvd in Ring_and_Field; a couple of lemmas on
wenzelm@27793
   516
dvd has been generalized to class comm_semiring_1.  Likewise a bunch
wenzelm@27793
   517
of lemmas from Divides has been generalized from nat to class
wenzelm@27793

   585
univariate polynomials with coefficients of type 'a.  In addition to
wenzelm@30845
   586

* Theory Library/Inner_Product defines a class of real_inner for real
wenzelm@30845
   590
inner product spaces, with an overloaded operation inner :: 'a => 'a
wenzelm@30845
   591

wenzelm@30845
   608
the HOL Distribution.  Constants zgcd and zlcm replace former igcd and
wenzelm@30845
   609

The same works for lcm, zgcd, zlcm.
wenzelm@30845

wenzelm@30845
   620
* Theory Library/Nat_Infinity: added addition, numeral syntax and more
wenzelm@30845
   621
instantiations for algebraic structures.  Removed some duplicate
wenzelm@30845
   622
theorems.  Changes in simp rules.  INCOMPATIBILITY.

corresponding code in background and inserts name of the corresponding
haftmann@27651
   626
resulting ML value/function/datatype constructor binding in place.
haftmann@27651
   627
All occurrences of @{code} with a single ML block are generated

src/HOL/Decision_Procs/Ferrack.thy for a more ambitious application.
wenzelm@30845
   631
In future you ought to refrain from ad-hoc compiling generated SML
wenzelm@30845
   632

wenzelm@30845
   633
cannot refer to constants for which user-defined serializations are

* High-level support for concurrent ML programming, see
wenzelm@29161
   737
src/Pure/Cuncurrent.  The data-oriented model of "future values" is
wenzelm@29161
   738
particularly convenient to organize independent functional
wenzelm@29161
   739
computations.  The concept of "synchronized variables" provides a
wenzelm@29161
   740
higher-order interface for components with shared state, avoiding the
wenzelm@30845
   741
delicate details of mutexes and condition variables.  (Requires

* ML bindings produced via Isar commands are stored within the Isar
wenzelm@30845

context (theory or proof).  Consequently, commands like 'use' and 'ML'
wenzelm@30845
   746
become thread-safe and work with undo as expected (concerning
wenzelm@30845

top-level bindings, not side-effects on global references).
wenzelm@30845
   748
INCOMPATIBILITY, need to provide proper Isar context when invoking the

wenzelm@30845
   754
a purely sequential fashion, disregarding the nested proof structure.
wenzelm@30845
   755
ML bindings introduced by 'ML_prf' are discarded at the end of the

* Result facts (from PureThy.note_thms, ProofContext.note_thms,
wenzelm@28089
   789
LocalTheory.note etc.) now refer to the *full* internal name, not the

Sign.read_typ, Sign.read_def_terms, Sign.read_term,
wenzelm@27287
   794
Thm.read_def_cterms, Thm.read_cterm etc.).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should
wenzelm@27287
   795
use regular Syntax.read_typ, Syntax.read_term, Syntax.read_typ_global,
wenzelm@27269
   796
Syntax.read_term_global etc.; see also OldGoals.read_term as last
wenzelm@27269
   797
resort for legacy applications.
wenzelm@27269
   798
wenzelm@30609
   799
* Disposed old declarations, tactics, tactic combinators that refer to
wenzelm@30609
   800
the simpset or claset of an implicit theory (such as Addsimps,
wenzelm@30609
   801
Simp_tac, SIMPSET).  INCOMPATIBILITY, should use @{simpset} etc. in
wenzelm@30609
   802
embedded ML text, or local_simpset_of with a proper context passed as
wenzelm@30609
   803
explicit runtime argument.
wenzelm@30609
   804
wenzelm@30845
   805
* Rules and tactics that read instantiations (read_instantiate,
wenzelm@30845
   806
res_inst_tac, thin_tac, subgoal_tac etc.) now demand a proper proof
wenzelm@30845
   807
context, which is required for parsing and type-checking.  Moreover,
wenzelm@30845
   808
the variables are specified as plain indexnames, not string encodings
wenzelm@30845
   809
thereof.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@30845
   810
wenzelm@30845
   811
* Generic Toplevel.add_hook interface allows to analyze the result of
wenzelm@30845
   812
transactions.  E.g. see src/Pure/ProofGeneral/proof_general_pgip.ML
wenzelm@30845
   813
for theorem dependency output of transactions resulting in a new
wenzelm@30845
   814

* ML antiquotations: block-structured compilation context indicated by
wenzelm@27391
   817
\<lbrace> ... \<rbrace>; additional antiquotation forms:
wenzelm@27391
   818
wenzelm@30845
   819
  @{binding name}                         - basic name binding
wenzelm@27519
   820
  @{let ?pat = term}                      - term abbreviation (HO matching)
wenzelm@27519
   821
  @{note name = fact}                     - fact abbreviation
wenzelm@27519
   822
  @{thm fact}                             - singleton fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519
   823
  @{thms fact}                            - general fact (with attributes)
wenzelm@27519

* The Isabelle "emacs" tool provides a specific interface to invoke
wenzelm@28248
   834
Proof General / Emacs, with more explicit failure if that is not
wenzelm@28248
   835
installed (the old isabelle-interface script silently falls back on
wenzelm@28248
   836
isabelle-process).  The PROOFGENERAL_HOME setting determines the
wenzelm@28248
   837
installation location of the Proof General distribution.
wenzelm@28248
   838
wenzelm@27979
   839
* Isabelle/lib/classes/Pure.jar provides basic support to integrate
wenzelm@27979
   840
the Isabelle process into a JVM/Scala application.  See
wenzelm@27979
   841
Isabelle/lib/jedit/plugin for a minimal example.  (The obsolete Java
wenzelm@27979
   842
process wrapper has been discontinued.)
wenzelm@27979
   843
wenzelm@30845
   844
* Added homegrown Isabelle font with unicode layout, see lib/fonts.
wenzelm@30845
   845
wenzelm@30845
   846
* Various status messages (with exact source position information) are
wenzelm@27979
   847
emitted, if proper markup print mode is enabled.  This allows
wenzelm@27979
   848
user-interface components to provide detailed feedback on internal
wenzelm@27979
   849
prover operations.

*** General ***
wenzelm@25522
   857
wenzelm@27061
   858
* The Isabelle/Isar Reference Manual (isar-ref) has been reorganized
wenzelm@27061
   859
and updated, with formally checked references as hyperlinks.
wenzelm@27061
   860
wenzelm@25994
   861
* Theory loader: use_thy (and similar operations) no longer set the
wenzelm@25994
   862
implicit ML context, which was occasionally hard to predict and in
wenzelm@25994
   863
conflict with concurrency.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use ML within Isar which
wenzelm@25994
   864
provides a proper context already.
wenzelm@25994
   865
wenzelm@26323
   866
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@26323
   867
file are no longer supported.  INCOMPATIBILITY, regular 'uses' and
wenzelm@26323
   868
'use' within a theory file will do the job.
wenzelm@26323
   869
wenzelm@26650
   870
* Name space merge now observes canonical order, i.e. the second space
wenzelm@26650
   871
is inserted into the first one, while existing entries in the first
wenzelm@26659
   872
space take precedence.  INCOMPATIBILITY in rare situations, may try to
wenzelm@26650
   873
swap theory imports.
wenzelm@26650
   874
wenzelm@27067
   875
* Syntax: symbol \<chi> is now considered a letter.  Potential
wenzelm@27067
   876
INCOMPATIBILITY in identifier syntax etc.
wenzelm@27067
   877
wenzelm@27067
   878
* Outer syntax: string tokens no longer admit escaped white space,
wenzelm@27067
   879
which was an accidental (undocumented) feature.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@27067
   880
white space without escapes.
wenzelm@27067
   881
wenzelm@27067
   882
* Outer syntax: string tokens may contain arbitrary character codes
wenzelm@27067
   883
specified via 3 decimal digits (as in SML).  E.g. "foo\095bar" for
wenzelm@27067
   884
"foo_bar".

* Context-dependent token translations.  Default setup reverts locally
wenzelm@26718
   890
fixed variables, and adds hilite markup for undeclared frees.
wenzelm@26718
   891
berghofe@26681
   892
* Unused theorems can be found using the new command 'unused_thms'.
berghofe@26681
   893
There are three ways of invoking it:
berghofe@26681
   894
berghofe@26681
   895
(1) unused_thms
berghofe@26681
   896
     Only finds unused theorems in the current theory.
berghofe@26681
   897
berghofe@26681
   898
(2) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n -
berghofe@26681
   899
     Finds unused theorems in the current theory and all of its ancestors,
berghofe@26681
   900
     excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   901
berghofe@26681
   902
(3) unused_thms thy_1 ... thy_n - thy'_1 ... thy'_m
berghofe@26681
   903
     Finds unused theorems in the theories thy'_1 ... thy'_m and all of
berghofe@26681
   904
     their ancestors, excluding the theories thy_1 ... thy_n and all of
berghofe@26681
   905
     their ancestors.
berghofe@26681
   906
wenzelm@26718
   907
In order to increase the readability of the list produced by
wenzelm@26718
   908
unused_thms, theorems that have been created by a particular instance
wenzelm@26874
   909
of a theory command such as 'inductive' or 'function' are considered
wenzelm@26874
   910
to belong to the same "group", meaning that if at least one theorem in
wenzelm@26718
   911
this group is used, the other theorems in the same group are no longer
wenzelm@26718
   912
reported as unused.  Moreover, if all theorems in the group are
wenzelm@26718
   913
unused, only one theorem in the group is displayed.
wenzelm@26718
   914
wenzelm@26718
   915
Note that proof objects have to be switched on in order for
wenzelm@26718
   916
unused_thms to work properly (i.e. !proofs must be >= 1, which is
wenzelm@26874
   917
usually the case when using Proof General with the default settings).
berghofe@26681
   918
wenzelm@26650
   919
* Authentic naming of facts disallows ad-hoc overwriting of previous
wenzelm@26650
   920
theorems within the same name space.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to remove
wenzelm@26650
   921
duplicate fact bindings, or even accidental fact duplications.  Note
wenzelm@26650
   922
that tools may maintain dynamically scoped facts systematically, using
wenzelm@26650
   923
PureThy.add_thms_dynamic.
wenzelm@26650
   924
wenzelm@26660
   925
* Command 'hide' now allows to hide from "fact" name space as well.
wenzelm@26660
   926
wenzelm@26496
   927
* Eliminated destructive theorem database, simpset, claset, and
wenzelm@26496
   928
clasimpset.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY, really need to observe linear
wenzelm@26496
   929
update of theories within ML code.
wenzelm@26479
   930
wenzelm@26955
   931
* Eliminated theory ProtoPure and CPure, leaving just one Pure theory.
wenzelm@26955
   932
INCOMPATIBILITY, object-logics depending on former Pure require
wenzelm@26955
   933
additional setup PureThy.old_appl_syntax_setup; object-logics
wenzelm@26955
   934
depending on former CPure need to refer to Pure.
wenzelm@26650
   935
wenzelm@26495
   936
* Commands 'use' and 'ML' are now purely functional, operating on
wenzelm@26479
   937
theory/local_theory.  Removed former 'ML_setup' (on theory), use 'ML'
wenzelm@26479
   938
instead.  Added 'ML_val' as mere diagnostic replacement for 'ML'.
wenzelm@26479
   939
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26479
   940
wenzelm@26874
   941
* Command 'setup': discontinued implicit version with ML reference.
wenzelm@26434
   942
wenzelm@25970
   943
* Instantiation target allows for simultaneous specification of class
wenzelm@25970
   944
instance operations together with an instantiation proof.
wenzelm@25970
   945
Type-checking phase allows to refer to class operations uniformly.

wenzelm@26201

* Indexing of literal facts: be more serious about including only
wenzelm@26201
   950
facts from the visible specification/proof context, but not the
wenzelm@26201
   951
background context (locale etc.).  Affects `prop` notation and method
wenzelm@26201
   952
"fact".  INCOMPATIBILITY: need to name facts explicitly in rare
wenzelm@26201
   953
situations.
wenzelm@26201
   954
wenzelm@26925
   955
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": removed obsolete/undocumented
wenzelm@26925
   956
"(open)" option, which used to expose internal bound variables to the
wenzelm@26925
   957
proof text.
wenzelm@26925
   958
wenzelm@26925
   959
* Isar statements: removed obsolete case "rule_context".
wenzelm@26925
   960
INCOMPATIBILITY, better use explicit fixes/assumes.
wenzelm@26925
   961
wenzelm@26874
   962
* Locale proofs: default proof step now includes 'unfold_locales';
wenzelm@26874
   963
hence 'proof' without argument may be used to unfold locale
wenzelm@26874
   964
predicates.

* Simplified pdfsetup.sty: color/hyperref is used unconditionally for
wenzelm@26914
   970
both pdf and dvi (hyperlinks usually work in xdvi as well); removed
wenzelm@26914
   971
obsolete thumbpdf setup (contemporary PDF viewers do this on the
wenzelm@26914
   972
spot); renamed link color from "darkblue" to "linkcolor" (default
wenzelm@26920
   973
value unchanged, can be redefined via \definecolor); no longer sets

   974
"a4paper" option (unnecessary or even intrusive).
wenzelm@26914

wenzelm@27008
   977
method (either a method name or a method name plus (optional) method

   984
definition/function/....  No separate induction rule is provided.  The
wenzelm@27067
   985
"primrec" command distinguishes old-style and new-style specifications
wenzelm@27067

wenzelm@27067
   987
When adjusting theories, beware: constants stemming from new-style

* Method "induct_scheme" derives user-specified induction rules
wenzelm@27067
  1003
from well-founded induction and completeness of patterns. This factors
wenzelm@27067
  1004
out some operations that are done internally by the function package
wenzelm@27067
  1005
and makes them available separately.  See

  1007
wenzelm@27067
  1008
* More flexible generation of measure functions for termination
wenzelm@27067
  1009
proofs: Measure functions can be declared by proving a rule of the
wenzelm@27067
  1010
form "is_measure f" and giving it the [measure_function] attribute.
wenzelm@27067
  1011
The "is_measure" predicate is logically meaningless (always true), and
wenzelm@27067
  1012
just guides the heuristic.  To find suitable measure functions, the
wenzelm@27067
  1013
termination prover sets up the goal "is_measure ?f" of the appropriate
wenzelm@27067
  1014
type and generates all solutions by prolog-style backwards proof using
wenzelm@27067
  1015
the declared rules.
wenzelm@27067
  1016
wenzelm@27067
  1017
This setup also deals with rules like 
wenzelm@27067
  1018
wenzelm@27067
  1019
  "is_measure f ==> is_measure (list_size f)"
wenzelm@27067
  1020
wenzelm@27067
  1021
which accommodates nested datatypes that recurse through lists.
wenzelm@27067
  1022
Similar rules are predeclared for products and option types.

  1031
  - Some definitions of overloaded operators on sets can now be proved
wenzelm@27008
  1032
    using the definitions of the operators on => and bool.  Therefore,
wenzelm@27008
  1033

  1098
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@26445

  1101
and "Cons".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26874
  1102

  1133
operator BIT and the bit datatype with constructors B0 and B1 have
wenzelm@26180
  1134
disappeared.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use "Int.Bit0 x" and "Int.Bit1 y" in

  1135
place of "x BIT bit.B0" and "y BIT bit.B1", respectively.  Theorems

numbers rather than integers.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@26180
  1169
wenzelm@26180

wenzelm@25726
  1185
%x. c. The simplifier setup is now more robust against eta expansion.
schirmer@25705

name(typargs)} produces statically-checked Const term.
wenzelm@27067
  1219
wenzelm@26401

wenzelm@26401

* Removed obsolete "use_legacy_bindings" function.
wenzelm@26188

wenzelm@25737
  1225
* The ``print mode'' is now a thread-local value derived from a global
wenzelm@25737
  1226
template (the former print_mode reference), thus access becomes
wenzelm@25737
  1227
non-critical.  The global print_mode reference is for session

  1282
warning/error of "Legacy feature: ...", depending on the state of the
wenzelm@23367
  1283
tolerate_legacy_features flag (default true). FUTURE INCOMPATIBILITY:

  1284
legacy features will disappear eventually.
wenzelm@22826
  1285
wenzelm@17918
  1286
* Theory syntax: the header format ``theory A = B + C:'' has been
wenzelm@17918
  1287
discontinued in favour of ``theory A imports B C begin''.  Use isatool
wenzelm@17918
  1288
fixheaders to convert existing theory files.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1289
wenzelm@17918
  1290
* Theory syntax: the old non-Isar theory file format has been
wenzelm@17918
  1291
discontinued altogether.  Note that ML proof scripts may still be used
wenzelm@17918
  1292
with Isar theories; migration is usually quite simple with the ML
wenzelm@17918
  1293
function use_legacy_bindings.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@17918
  1294
wenzelm@22871
  1295
* Theory syntax: some popular names (e.g. 'class', 'declaration',
wenzelm@22871
  1296
'fun', 'help', 'if') are now keywords.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use double
wenzelm@22871

wenzelm@23888
  1300
header specifications (including optional directories), but not the
wenzelm@24172
  1301
accidental file locations of previously successful loads.  The strict
wenzelm@24172
  1302
update policy of former update_thy is now already performed by
wenzelm@24172
  1303
use_thy, so the former has been removed; use_thys updates several
wenzelm@24172
  1304
theories simultaneously, just as 'imports' within a theory header
wenzelm@24172
  1305
specification, but without merging the results.  Potential
wenzelm@24172
  1306
INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to refine theory headers and commands
wenzelm@24172
  1307
ROOT.ML which depend on load order.
wenzelm@23888
  1308
wenzelm@23888
  1309
* Theory loader: optional support for content-based file
wenzelm@23888
  1310
identification, instead of the traditional scheme of full physical
wenzelm@23889
  1311
path plus date stamp; configured by the ISABELLE_FILE_IDENT setting
wenzelm@23888
  1312
(cf. the system manual).  The new scheme allows to work with
wenzelm@23888
  1313
non-finished theories in persistent session images, such that source
wenzelm@23888
  1314
files may be moved later on without requiring reloads.
wenzelm@23888
  1315
wenzelm@24187
  1316
* Theory loader: old-style ML proof scripts being *attached* to a thy
wenzelm@24187
  1317
file (with the same base name as the theory) are considered a legacy
wenzelm@24800
  1318
feature, which will disappear eventually. Even now, the theory loader
wenzelm@24800
  1319
no longer maintains dependencies on such files.
wenzelm@24800
  1320
wenzelm@24800
  1321
* Syntax: the scope for resolving ambiguities via type-inference is
wenzelm@24800
  1322
now limited to individual terms, instead of whole simultaneous
wenzelm@24234
  1323
specifications as before. This greatly reduces the complexity of the
wenzelm@24234
  1324
syntax module and improves flexibility by separating parsing and
wenzelm@24234
  1325
type-checking. INCOMPATIBILITY: additional type-constraints (explicit
wenzelm@24234
  1326
'fixes' etc.) are required in rare situations.
wenzelm@24234
  1327
wenzelm@25034
  1328
* Syntax: constants introduced by new-style packages ('definition',
wenzelm@25034
  1329
'abbreviation' etc.) are passed through the syntax module in
wenzelm@25034
  1330
``authentic mode''. This means that associated mixfix annotations
wenzelm@25034
  1331
really stick to such constants, independently of potential name space
wenzelm@25034
  1332
ambiguities introduced later on. INCOMPATIBILITY: constants in parse
wenzelm@25034
  1333
trees are represented slightly differently, may need to adapt syntax
wenzelm@25034
  1334
translations accordingly. Use CONST marker in 'translations' and
wenzelm@25034
  1335
@{const_syntax} antiquotation in 'parse_translation' etc.
wenzelm@25034
  1336
wenzelm@17981
  1337
* Legacy goal package: reduced interface to the bare minimum required
wenzelm@17981
  1338
to keep existing proof scripts running.  Most other user-level
wenzelm@17981
  1339
functions are now part of the OldGoals structure, which is *not* open
wenzelm@17981
  1340
by default (consider isatool expandshort before open OldGoals).
wenzelm@17981
  1341
Removed top_sg, prin, printyp, pprint_term/typ altogether, because
wenzelm@17981
  1342
these tend to cause confusion about the actual goal (!) context being
wenzelm@17981
  1343
used here, which is not necessarily the same as the_context().
wenzelm@17918
  1344
wenzelm@23379
  1345
* Command 'find_theorems': supports "*" wild-card in "name:"
wenzelm@23379
  1346
criterion; "with_dups" option.  Certain ProofGeneral versions might
wenzelm@23379
  1347
support a specific search form (see ProofGeneral/CHANGES).
webertj@22965
  1348
wenzelm@20370
  1349
* The ``prems limit'' option (cf. ProofContext.prems_limit) is now -1
wenzelm@20370
  1350
by default, which means that "prems" (and also "fixed variables") are
wenzelm@20370
  1351
suppressed from proof state output.  Note that the ProofGeneral
wenzelm@20370
  1352
settings mechanism allows to change and save options persistently, but
wenzelm@20370
  1353
older versions of Isabelle will fail to start up if a negative prems
wenzelm@20370
  1354
limit is imposed.
wenzelm@20370
  1355
wenzelm@21308
  1356
* Local theory targets may be specified by non-nested blocks of
wenzelm@21308
  1357
``context/locale/class ... begin'' followed by ``end''.  The body may
wenzelm@21308
  1358
contain definitions, theorems etc., including any derived mechanism
wenzelm@21308
  1359
that has been implemented on top of these primitives.  This concept
wenzelm@21308
  1360
generalizes the existing ``theorem (in ...)'' towards more versatility
wenzelm@21308
  1361
and scalability.
wenzelm@21308
  1362
wenzelm@21960
  1363
* Proof General interface: proper undo of final 'end' command;
wenzelm@21960
  1364
discontinued Isabelle/classic mode (ML proof scripts).

*** Document preparation ***
wenzelm@17865
  1368
wenzelm@21717
  1369
* Added antiquotation @{theory name} which prints the given name,
wenzelm@21717
  1370
after checking that it refers to a valid ancestor theory in the
wenzelm@21717
  1371
current context.
haftmann@21339
  1372
wenzelm@17869
  1373
* Added antiquotations @{ML_type text} and @{ML_struct text} which
wenzelm@17869
  1374
check the given source text as ML type/structure, printing verbatim.
wenzelm@17865
  1375
wenzelm@21717
  1376
* Added antiquotation @{abbrev "c args"} which prints the abbreviation
wenzelm@21717
  1377
"c args == rhs" given in the current context.  (Any number of
wenzelm@21735
  1378
arguments may be given on the LHS.)

* The 'class' package offers a combination of axclass and locale to
wenzelm@25129
  1384
achieve Haskell-like type classes in Isabelle.  Definitions and
wenzelm@25129
  1385
theorems within a class context produce both relative results (with
wenzelm@25129
  1386
implicit parameters according to the locale context), and polymorphic
wenzelm@25129
  1387
constants with qualified polymorphism (according to the class
wenzelm@25129
  1388
context).  Within the body context of a 'class' target, a separate
wenzelm@25129
  1389
syntax layer ("user space type system") takes care of converting
wenzelm@25129
  1390
between global polymorphic consts and internal locale representation.

* Generic code generator framework allows to generate executable
wenzelm@24800
  1395
code for ML and Haskell (including Isabelle classes).  A short usage
wenzelm@24800
  1396
sketch:
haftmann@20188
  1397
haftmann@20188
  1398
    internal compilation:
haftmann@25199
  1399
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML
haftmann@20453
  1400
    writing SML code to a file:
haftmann@25199
  1401
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in SML <filename>
haftmann@22735
  1402
    writing OCaml code to a file:

  1403
        export_code <list of constants (term syntax)> in OCaml <filename>
haftmann@20188
  1404
    writing Haskell code to a bunch of files:

  1410
Reasonable default setup of framework in HOL.
haftmann@20453
  1411
haftmann@20453
  1412
Theorem attributs for selecting and transforming function equations theorems:
haftmann@20453
  1413
haftmann@22845
  1414
    [code fun]:        select a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1415
    [code fun del]:    deselect a theorem as function equation for a specific constant
haftmann@22845
  1416
    [code inline]:     select an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@22845
  1417
    [code inline del]: deselect an equation theorem for unfolding (inlining) in place
haftmann@20453
  1418
haftmann@22735
  1419
User-defined serializations (target in {SML, OCaml, Haskell}):
haftmann@20453
  1420
haftmann@20453
  1421
    code_const <and-list of constants (term syntax)>
haftmann@20453
  1422
      {(target) <and-list of const target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1423
haftmann@20453
  1424
    code_type <and-list of type constructors>
haftmann@20453
  1425
      {(target) <and-list of type target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1426
haftmann@20453
  1427
    code_instance <and-list of instances>
haftmann@20453
  1428
      {(target)}+
haftmann@20453
  1429
        where instance ::= <type constructor> :: <class>
haftmann@20453
  1430
haftmann@20453
  1431
    code_class <and_list of classes>
haftmann@20453
  1432
      {(target) <and-list of class target syntax>}+
haftmann@20453
  1433
        where class target syntax ::= <class name> {where {<classop> == <target syntax>}+}?
haftmann@20453
  1434
haftmann@25199
  1435
code_instance and code_class only are effective to target Haskell.
haftmann@22735
  1436
wenzelm@25177
  1437
For example usage see src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator.thy and
wenzelm@25177
  1438
src/HOL/ex/Codegenerator_Pretty.thy.  A separate tutorial on code
wenzelm@24800
  1439
generation from Isabelle/HOL theories is available via "isatool doc
wenzelm@24800
  1440
codegen".
haftmann@20188
  1441
wenzelm@25129
  1442
* Code generator: consts in 'consts_code' Isar commands are now
wenzelm@25129
  1443
referred to by usual term syntax (including optional type
wenzelm@25129
  1444
annotations).
wenzelm@25129
  1445
wenzelm@19254
  1446
* Command 'no_translations' removes translation rules from theory
wenzelm@19254
  1447
syntax.
wenzelm@19254
  1448
wenzelm@19625
  1449
* Overloaded definitions are now actually checked for acyclic
wenzelm@19714
  1450
dependencies.  The overloading scheme is slightly more general than
wenzelm@19714
  1451
that of Haskell98, although Isabelle does not demand an exact
wenzelm@19714
  1452
correspondence to type class and instance declarations.
wenzelm@19714
  1453
INCOMPATIBILITY, use ``defs (unchecked overloaded)'' to admit more
wenzelm@19714
  1454
exotic versions of overloading -- at the discretion of the user!
wenzelm@19711
  1455
wenzelm@19711
  1456
Polymorphic constants are represented via type arguments, i.e. the
wenzelm@19711
  1457
instantiation that matches an instance against the most general
wenzelm@19711
  1458
declaration given in the signature.  For example, with the declaration
wenzelm@19711
  1459
c :: 'a => 'a => 'a, an instance c :: nat => nat => nat is represented
wenzelm@19711
  1460
as c(nat).  Overloading is essentially simultaneous structural
wenzelm@19711
  1461
recursion over such type arguments.  Incomplete specification patterns
wenzelm@19714
  1462
impose global constraints on all occurrences, e.g. c('a * 'a) on the
wenzelm@19715
  1463
LHS means that more general c('a * 'b) will be disallowed on any RHS.
wenzelm@19714
  1464
Command 'print_theory' outputs the normalized system of recursive
wenzelm@19714
  1465
equations, see section "definitions".
wenzelm@19625
  1466
wenzelm@24086
  1467
* Configuration options are maintained within the theory or proof
wenzelm@24086
  1468
context (with name and type bool/int/string), providing a very simple
wenzelm@24086
  1469
interface to a poor-man's version of general context data.  Tools may
wenzelm@24110
  1470
declare options in ML (e.g. using Attrib.config_int) and then refer to
wenzelm@24110
  1471
these values using Config.get etc.  Users may change options via an
wenzelm@24110
  1472
associated attribute of the same name.  This form of context
wenzelm@24110
  1473
declaration works particularly well with commands 'declare' or
wenzelm@24110
  1474
'using', for example ``declare [[foo = 42]]''.  Thus it has become
wenzelm@24110
  1475
very easy to avoid global references, which would not observe Isar
wenzelm@24110
  1476
toplevel undo/redo and fail to work with multithreading.
wenzelm@24086
  1477
wenzelm@24172
  1478
Various global ML references of Pure and HOL have been turned into
wenzelm@24172
  1479
configuration options:
wenzelm@24172
  1480
wenzelm@24172

  Unify.search_bound		unify_search_bound

  DatatypeProp.dtK		datatype_distinctness_limit

  fast_arith_neq_limit  	fast_arith_neq_limit

  fast_arith_split_limit	fast_arith_split_limit
wenzelm@24172
  1490
wenzelm@24086
  1491
* Named collections of theorems may be easily installed as context
wenzelm@24800
  1492
data using the functor NamedThmsFun (see also
wenzelm@24086
  1493
src/Pure/Tools/named_thms.ML).  The user may add or delete facts via
wenzelm@24110
  1494
attributes; there is also a toplevel print command.  This facility is
wenzelm@24110
  1495
just a common case of general context data, which is the preferred way
wenzelm@24110
  1496
for anything more complex than just a list of facts in canonical
wenzelm@24110
  1497
order.
wenzelm@24086
  1498
wenzelm@24032
  1499
* Isar: command 'declaration' augments a local theory by generic
wenzelm@24032
  1500
declaration functions written in ML.  This enables arbitrary content
wenzelm@24032
  1501
being added to the context, depending on a morphism that tells the
wenzelm@24032
  1502
difference of the original declaration context wrt. the application
wenzelm@24032
  1503
context encountered later on.
wenzelm@24032
  1504
wenzelm@24032
  1505
* Isar: proper interfaces for simplification procedures.  Command
wenzelm@24032
  1506
'simproc_setup' declares named simprocs (with match patterns, and body
wenzelm@24032
  1507
text in ML).  Attribute "simproc" adds/deletes simprocs in the current
wenzelm@24032
  1508
context.  ML antiquotation @{simproc name} retrieves named simprocs.
wenzelm@24032
  1509
wenzelm@24032
  1510
* Isar: an extra pair of brackets around attribute declarations
wenzelm@24032
  1511
abbreviates a theorem reference involving an internal dummy fact,
wenzelm@24032
  1512
which will be ignored later --- only the effect of the attribute on
wenzelm@24032
  1513
the background context will persist.  This form of in-place
wenzelm@24032
  1514
declarations is particularly useful with commands like 'declare' and
wenzelm@24032
  1515
'using', for example ``have A using [[simproc a]] by simp''.
wenzelm@24032
  1516
wenzelm@23369
  1517
* Isar: method "assumption" (and implicit closing of subproofs) now
wenzelm@23369
  1518
takes simple non-atomic goal assumptions into account: after applying
wenzelm@23369
  1519
an assumption as a rule the resulting subgoals are solved by atomic
wenzelm@23369
  1520
assumption steps.  This is particularly useful to finish 'obtain'
wenzelm@23369
  1521
goals, such as "!!x. (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> P x ==> thesis",
wenzelm@23369
  1522
without referring to the original premise "!!x. P x ==> thesis" in the
wenzelm@23369
  1523
Isar proof context.  POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY: method "assumption" is
wenzelm@23369
  1524
more permissive.
wenzelm@23369
  1525
wenzelm@23369
  1526
* Isar: implicit use of prems from the Isar proof context is
wenzelm@23369
  1527
considered a legacy feature.  Common applications like ``have A .''
wenzelm@23369
  1528
may be replaced by ``have A by fact'' or ``note `A`''.  In general,
wenzelm@23369
  1529
referencing facts explicitly here improves readability and
wenzelm@23369
  1530
maintainability of proof texts.
wenzelm@23369
  1531
wenzelm@17865
  1532
* Isar: improper proof element 'guess' is like 'obtain', but derives
wenzelm@17865
  1533
the obtained context from the course of reasoning!  For example:
wenzelm@17865
  1534
wenzelm@17865
  1535
  assume "EX x y. A x & B y"   -- "any previous fact"
wenzelm@17865
  1536
  then guess x and y by clarify
wenzelm@17865
  1537
wenzelm@17865
  1538
This technique is potentially adventurous, depending on the facts and
wenzelm@17865
  1539
proof tools being involved here.
wenzelm@17865
  1540
wenzelm@18020
  1541
* Isar: known facts from the proof context may be specified as literal
wenzelm@18020
  1542
propositions, using ASCII back-quote syntax.  This works wherever
wenzelm@18020
  1543
named facts used to be allowed so far, in proof commands, proof
wenzelm@18020
  1544
methods, attributes etc.  Literal facts are retrieved from the context
wenzelm@18020
  1545
according to unification of type and term parameters.  For example,
wenzelm@18020
  1546
provided that "A" and "A ==> B" and "!!x. P x ==> Q x" are known
wenzelm@18020
  1547
theorems in the current context, then these are valid literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1548
`A` and `A ==> B` and `!!x. P x ==> Q x" as well as `P a ==> Q a` etc.
wenzelm@18020
  1549
wenzelm@18020
  1550
There is also a proof method "fact" which does the same composition
wenzelm@18044
  1551
for explicit goal states, e.g. the following proof texts coincide with
wenzelm@18044
  1552
certain special cases of literal facts:
wenzelm@18020
  1553
wenzelm@18020
  1554
  have "A" by fact                 ==  note `A`
wenzelm@18020
  1555
  have "A ==> B" by fact           ==  note `A ==> B`
wenzelm@18020
  1556
  have "!!x. P x ==> Q x" by fact  ==  note `!!x. P x ==> Q x`
wenzelm@18020
  1557
  have "P a ==> Q a" by fact       ==  note `P a ==> Q a`
wenzelm@18020
  1558
wenzelm@20118
  1559
* Isar: ":" (colon) is no longer a symbolic identifier character in
wenzelm@20118
  1560
outer syntax.  Thus symbolic identifiers may be used without
wenzelm@20118
  1561
additional white space in declarations like this: ``assume *: A''.
wenzelm@20118
  1562
wenzelm@20013
  1563
* Isar: 'print_facts' prints all local facts of the current context,
wenzelm@20013
  1564
both named and unnamed ones.
wenzelm@20013
  1565
wenzelm@18308
  1566
* Isar: 'def' now admits simultaneous definitions, e.g.:
wenzelm@18308
  1567
wenzelm@18308
  1568
  def x == "t" and y == "u"
wenzelm@18308
  1569
wenzelm@18540
  1570
* Isar: added command 'unfolding', which is structurally similar to
wenzelm@18540
  1571
'using', but affects both the goal state and facts by unfolding given
wenzelm@18815
  1572
rewrite rules.  Thus many occurrences of the 'unfold' method or
wenzelm@18540
  1573
'unfolded' attribute may be replaced by first-class proof text.
wenzelm@18540
  1574
wenzelm@18815
  1575
* Isar: methods 'unfold' / 'fold', attributes 'unfolded' / 'folded',
wenzelm@18815
  1576
and command 'unfolding' now all support object-level equalities
wenzelm@18815
  1577
(potentially conditional).  The underlying notion of rewrite rule is
wenzelm@18815
  1578
analogous to the 'rule_format' attribute, but *not* that of the
wenzelm@18815
  1579
Simplifier (which is usually more generous).
wenzelm@18815
  1580
kleing@24238
  1581
* Isar: the new attribute [rotated n] (default n = 1) rotates the
kleing@24238

  1584
* Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
wenzelm@19220
  1585
method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
wenzelm@19240
  1586
sub-goals, which need to exist.  For example, ``simp_all [3]''
wenzelm@19240
  1587
simplifies the first three sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[]
wenzelm@19240
  1588
simplifies all new goals that emerge from applying rule foo to the
wenzelm@19240
  1589
originally first one.
wenzelm@19220
  1590
wenzelm@19814
  1591
* Isar: schematic goals are no longer restricted to higher-order
wenzelm@19814
  1592
patterns; e.g. ``lemma "?P(?x)" by (rule TrueI)'' now works as
wenzelm@19814
  1593
expected.
wenzelm@19814
  1594
wenzelm@18901
  1595
* Isar: the conclusion of a long theorem statement is now either
wenzelm@18901
  1596
'shows' (a simultaneous conjunction, as before), or 'obtains'
wenzelm@18901
  1597
(essentially a disjunction of cases with local parameters and
wenzelm@18901
  1598
assumptions).  The latter allows to express general elimination rules
wenzelm@18910
  1599
adequately; in this notation common elimination rules look like this:
wenzelm@18901
  1600
wenzelm@18901
  1601
  lemma exE:    -- "EX x. P x ==> (!!x. P x ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1602
    assumes "EX x. P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1603
    obtains x where "P x"
wenzelm@18901
  1604
wenzelm@18901
  1605
  lemma conjE:  -- "A & B ==> (A ==> B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1606
    assumes "A & B"
wenzelm@18901
  1607
    obtains A and B
wenzelm@18901
  1608
wenzelm@18901
  1609
  lemma disjE:  -- "A | B ==> (A ==> thesis) ==> (B ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1610
    assumes "A | B"
wenzelm@18901
  1611
    obtains
wenzelm@18901
  1612
      A
wenzelm@18901
  1613
    | B
wenzelm@18901
  1614
wenzelm@18910
  1615
The subsequent classical rules even refer to the formal "thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1616
explicitly:
wenzelm@18901
  1617
wenzelm@18901
  1618
  lemma classical:     -- "(~ thesis ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1619
    obtains "~ thesis"
wenzelm@18901
  1620
wenzelm@18910
  1621
  lemma Peirce's_Law:  -- "((thesis ==> something) ==> thesis) ==> thesis"
wenzelm@18910
  1622
    obtains "thesis ==> something"
wenzelm@18901
  1623
wenzelm@18901
  1624
The actual proof of an 'obtains' statement is analogous to that of the
wenzelm@18910
  1625
Isar proof element 'obtain', only that there may be several cases.
wenzelm@18910
  1626
Optional case names may be specified in parentheses; these will be
wenzelm@18910
  1627
available both in the present proof and as annotations in the
wenzelm@18910
  1628
resulting rule, for later use with the 'cases' method (cf. attribute
wenzelm@18910
  1629
case_names).
wenzelm@18901
  1630
wenzelm@21447
  1631
* Isar: the assumptions of a long theorem statement are available as
wenzelm@21447
  1632
"assms" fact in the proof context.  This is more appropriate than the
wenzelm@21447
  1633
(historical) "prems", which refers to all assumptions of the current
wenzelm@21447
  1634
context, including those from the target locale, proof body etc.
wenzelm@21447
  1635
wenzelm@19263
  1636
* Isar: 'print_statement' prints theorems from the current theory or
wenzelm@19263
  1637
proof context in long statement form, according to the syntax of a
wenzelm@19263
  1638
top-level lemma.
wenzelm@19263
  1639
wenzelm@18901
  1640
* Isar: 'obtain' takes an optional case name for the local context
wenzelm@18901
  1641
introduction rule (default "that").
wenzelm@18901
  1642
wenzelm@19587
  1643
* Isar: removed obsolete 'concl is' patterns.  INCOMPATIBILITY, use
wenzelm@19587
  1644
explicit (is "_ ==> ?foo") in the rare cases where this still happens
wenzelm@19587
  1645
to occur.
wenzelm@19587
  1646
wenzelm@19682
  1647
* Pure: syntax "CONST name" produces a fully internalized constant
wenzelm@19682
  1648
according to the current context.  This is particularly useful for
wenzelm@19682
  1649
syntax translations that should refer to internal constant
wenzelm@19682
  1650
representations independently of name spaces.
wenzelm@19682
  1651
wenzelm@21537
  1652
* Pure: syntax constant for foo (binder "FOO ") is called "foo_binder"
wenzelm@21537
  1653
instead of "FOO ". This allows multiple binder declarations to coexist
wenzelm@21537
  1654
in the same context.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21537
  1655
wenzelm@21209
  1656
* Isar/locales: 'notation' provides a robust interface to the 'syntax'
wenzelm@21209
  1657
primitive that also works in a locale context (both for constants and
wenzelm@24950
  1658
fixed variables). Type declaration and internal syntactic representation
wenzelm@24950
  1659
of given constants retrieved from the context. Likewise, the
wenzelm@24950
  1660
'no_notation' command allows to remove given syntax annotations from the
wenzelm@24950
  1661
current context.
wenzelm@19682
  1662
wenzelm@19665
  1663
* Isar/locales: new derived specification elements 'axiomatization',
wenzelm@19665
  1664
'definition', 'abbreviation', which support type-inference, admit
wenzelm@19083
  1665
object-level specifications (equality, equivalence).  See also the
wenzelm@19083
  1666
isar-ref manual.  Examples:
wenzelm@19081
  1667
wenzelm@19665
  1668
  axiomatization
wenzelm@21595
  1669
    eq  (infix "===" 50) where
wenzelm@21595
  1670
    eq_refl: "x === x" and eq_subst: "x === y ==> P x ==> P y"
wenzelm@21595
  1671
wenzelm@21595
  1672
  definition "f x y = x + y + 1"
wenzelm@21595
  1673
  definition g where "g x = f x x"
wenzelm@19081
  1674
wenzelm@19363
  1675
  abbreviation
wenzelm@21595
  1676
    neq  (infix "=!=" 50) where
wenzelm@19363
  1677
    "x =!= y == ~ (x === y)"
wenzelm@19081
  1678
wenzelm@19083
  1679
These specifications may be also used in a locale context.  Then the
wenzelm@19083
  1680
constants being introduced depend on certain fixed parameters, and the
wenzelm@19083
  1681
constant name is qualified by the locale base name.  An internal
wenzelm@19083
  1682
abbreviation takes care for convenient input and output, making the
wenzelm@19088
  1683
parameters implicit and using the original short name.  See also
wenzelm@25177
  1684
src/HOL/ex/Abstract_NAT.thy for an example of deriving polymorphic
wenzelm@19083
  1685
entities from a monomorphic theory.
wenzelm@19083
  1686
wenzelm@19083
  1687
Presently, abbreviations are only available 'in' a target locale, but
wenzelm@19363
  1688
not inherited by general import expressions.  Also note that
wenzelm@19363
  1689
'abbreviation' may be used as a type-safe replacement for 'syntax' +
wenzelm@24735
  1690
'translations' in common applications.  The "no_abbrevs" print mode
wenzelm@24735
  1691
prevents folding of abbreviations in term output.
wenzelm@19084
  1692
wenzelm@19682
  1693
Concrete syntax is attached to specified constants in internal form,
wenzelm@19682
  1694
independently of name spaces.  The parse tree representation is
wenzelm@21209
  1695
slightly different -- use 'notation' instead of raw 'syntax', and
wenzelm@19682
  1696
'translations' with explicit "CONST" markup to accommodate this.
wenzelm@19665
  1697
wenzelm@24800
  1698
* Pure/Isar: unified syntax for new-style specification mechanisms
wenzelm@24800
  1699
(e.g.  'definition', 'abbreviation', or 'inductive' in HOL) admits
wenzelm@24800
  1700
full type inference and dummy patterns ("_").  For example:
wenzelm@24735
  1701
wenzelm@24735
  1702
  definition "K x _ = x"
wenzelm@24735
  1703
wenzelm@24738
  1704
  inductive conj for A B
wenzelm@24738
  1705
  where "A ==> B ==> conj A B"
wenzelm@24738
  1706
wenzelm@21735
  1707
* Pure: command 'print_abbrevs' prints all constant abbreviations of
wenzelm@21735
  1708
the current context.  Print mode "no_abbrevs" prevents inversion of
wenzelm@21735
  1709
abbreviations on output.
wenzelm@21735
  1710
wenzelm@24800
  1711
* Isar/locales: improved parameter handling: use of locales "var" and
wenzelm@24800
  1712
"struct" no longer necessary; - parameter renamings are no longer
wenzelm@24800
  1713
required to be injective.  For example, this allows to define
wenzelm@24800
  1714
endomorphisms as locale endom = homom mult mult h.
ballarin@19783
  1715
ballarin@19931
  1716
* Isar/locales: changed the way locales with predicates are defined.
ballarin@19931
  1717
Instead of accumulating the specification, the imported expression is
wenzelm@22126
  1718
now an interpretation.  INCOMPATIBILITY: different normal form of
wenzelm@22126
  1719
locale expressions.  In particular, in interpretations of locales with
wenzelm@22126
  1720
predicates, goals repesenting already interpreted fragments are not
wenzelm@22126
  1721
removed automatically.  Use methods `intro_locales' and
wenzelm@22126
  1722
`unfold_locales'; see below.
wenzelm@22126
  1723
wenzelm@22126
  1724
* Isar/locales: new methods `intro_locales' and `unfold_locales'
wenzelm@22126
  1725
provide backward reasoning on locales predicates.  The methods are
wenzelm@22126
  1726
aware of interpretations and discharge corresponding goals.
wenzelm@22126
  1727
`intro_locales' is less aggressive then `unfold_locales' and does not
wenzelm@22126
  1728
unfold predicates to assumptions.
ballarin@19931
  1729
ballarin@19931
  1730
* Isar/locales: the order in which locale fragments are accumulated
wenzelm@22126
  1731
has changed.  This enables to override declarations from fragments due
wenzelm@22126
  1732
to interpretations -- for example, unwanted simp rules.
ballarin@19931
  1733
ballarin@23920
  1734
* Isar/locales: interpretation in theories and proof contexts has been
ballarin@23920
  1735
extended.  One may now specify (and prove) equations, which are
ballarin@23920
  1736
unfolded in interpreted theorems.  This is useful for replacing
ballarin@23920
  1737
defined concepts (constants depending on locale parameters) by
ballarin@23920
  1738
concepts already existing in the target context.  Example:
ballarin@23920
  1739
ballarin@23920
  1740
  interpretation partial_order ["op <= :: [int, int] => bool"]
ballarin@23920
  1741
    where "partial_order.less (op <=) (x::int) y = (x < y)"
ballarin@23920
  1742
wenzelm@24800
  1743
Typically, the constant `partial_order.less' is created by a
wenzelm@24800
  1744
definition specification element in the context of locale
wenzelm@24800
  1745
partial_order.
wenzelm@24800
  1746
wenzelm@24859
  1747
* Method "induct": improved internal context management to support
wenzelm@24800
  1748
local fixes and defines on-the-fly. Thus explicit meta-level
wenzelm@24800
  1749
connectives !!  and ==> are rarely required anymore in inductive goals
wenzelm@24800
  1750
(using object-logic connectives for this purpose has been long
wenzelm@24800
  1751
obsolete anyway). Common proof patterns are explained in
wenzelm@25177
  1752
src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, see also
wenzelm@25177
  1753
src/HOL/Isar_examples/Puzzle.thy and src/HOL/Lambda for realistic
wenzelm@25177
  1754
examples.
wenzelm@24606
  1755
wenzelm@24859
  1756
* Method "induct": improved handling of simultaneous goals. Instead of
wenzelm@24606
  1757
introducing object-level conjunction, the statement is now split into
wenzelm@24606
  1758
several conclusions, while the corresponding symbolic cases are nested
wenzelm@24606
  1759
accordingly. INCOMPATIBILITY, proofs need to be structured explicitly,
wenzelm@25177
  1760
see src/HOL/Induct/Common_Patterns.thy, for example.
wenzelm@24606
  1761
wenzelm@24859
  1762
* Method "induct": mutual induction rules are now specified as a list
wenzelm@24800
  1763
of rule sharing the same induction cases. HOL packages usually provide
wenzelm@24606
  1764
foo_bar.inducts for mutually defined items foo and bar (e.g. inductive
wenzelm@24859
  1765
predicates/sets or datatypes). INCOMPATIBILITY, users need to specify
wenzelm@24859
  1766
mutual induction rules differently, i.e. like this:
wenzelm@18506
  1767
wenzelm@18506
  1768
  (induct rule: foo_bar.inducts)
wenzelm@18506
  1769
  (induct set: foo bar)
wenzelm@24859
  1770
  (induct pred: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1771
  (induct type: foo bar)
wenzelm@18506
  1772
wenzelm@18506
  1773
The ML function ProjectRule.projections turns old-style rules into the
wenzelm@18506
  1774
new format.
wenzelm@18506
  1775
wenzelm@24859
  1776
* Method "coinduct": dual of induction, see
wenzelm@18399
  1777
src/HOL/Library/Coinductive_List.thy for various examples.
wenzelm@18399
  1778
wenzelm@24859
  1779
* Method "cases", "induct", "coinduct": the ``(open)'' option is
wenzelm@24859
  1780
considered a legacy feature.
wenzelm@24859
  1781
wenzelm@20919
  1782
* Attribute "symmetric" produces result with standardized schematic
wenzelm@20919
  1783
variables (index 0).  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@20919
  1784
wenzelm@22126
  1785
* Simplifier: by default the simplifier trace only shows top level
wenzelm@22126
  1786
rewrites now. That is, trace_simp_depth_limit is set to 1 by
wenzelm@22126
  1787
default. Thus there is less danger of being flooded by the trace. The
wenzelm@22126
  1788
trace indicates where parts have been suppressed.
nipkow@18674
  1789
  
wenzelm@18536
  1790
* Provers/classical: removed obsolete classical version of elim_format
wenzelm@18536
  1791
attribute; classical elim/dest rules are now treated uniformly when
wenzelm@18536
  1792
manipulating the claset.
wenzelm@18536
  1793
wenzelm@18694
  1794
* Provers/classical: stricter checks to ensure that supplied intro,
wenzelm@18694
  1795
dest and elim rules are well-formed; dest and elim rules must have at
wenzelm@18694
  1796
least one premise.
wenzelm@18694
  1797
wenzelm@18694
  1798
* Provers/classical: attributes dest/elim/intro take an optional
wenzelm@18695
  1799
weight argument for the rule (just as the Pure versions).  Weights are
wenzelm@18696
  1800
ignored by automated tools, but determine the search order of single
wenzelm@18694
  1801
rule steps.
paulson@18557
  1802
wenzelm@18536
  1803
* Syntax: input syntax now supports dummy variable binding "%_. b",
wenzelm@18536
  1804
where the body does not mention the bound variable.  Note that dummy
wenzelm@18536
  1805
patterns implicitly depend on their context of bounds, which makes
wenzelm@18536
  1806
"{_. _}" match any set comprehension as expected.  Potential
wenzelm@18536
  1807
INCOMPATIBILITY -- parse translations need to cope with syntactic
wenzelm@18536
  1808
constant "_idtdummy" in the binding position.
wenzelm@18536
  1809
wenzelm@18536
  1810
* Syntax: removed obsolete syntactic constant "_K" and its associated
wenzelm@18536
  1811
parse translation.  INCOMPATIBILITY -- use dummy abstraction instead,
wenzelm@18536
  1812
for example "A -> B" => "Pi A (%_. B)".
wenzelm@17779
  1813
wenzelm@20582
  1814
* Pure: 'class_deps' command visualizes the subclass relation, using
wenzelm@20582
  1815
the graph browser tool.
wenzelm@20582
  1816
wenzelm@24800
  1817
* Pure: 'print_theory' now suppresses certain internal declarations by

  1818
default; use '!' option for full details.

INCOMPATIBILITY.  Adaptions may be required in the following cases:
haftmann@25184
  1871
haftmann@25184
  1872
a) User-defined constants using any of the names "plus", "minus",
haftmann@25184
  1873
"times", "less" or "less_eq". The standard syntax translations for
haftmann@25184
  1874
"+", "-" and "*" may go wrong.  INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific
haftmann@25184
  1875
names.
haftmann@25184
  1876
haftmann@25184
  1877
b) Variables named "plus", "minus", "times", "less", "less_eq"
haftmann@25184
  1878
INCOMPATIBILITY: use more specific names.
haftmann@25184
  1879
haftmann@25184
  1880
c) Permutative equations (e.g. "a + b = b + a")
haftmann@25184
  1881
Since the change of names also changes the order of terms, permutative
haftmann@25184
  1882
rewrite rules may get applied in a different order. Experience shows
haftmann@25184
  1883
that this is rarely the case (only two adaptions in the whole Isabelle
haftmann@25184
  1884
distribution).  INCOMPATIBILITY: rewrite proofs
haftmann@25184
  1885
haftmann@25184
  1886
d) ML code directly refering to constant names
haftmann@25184
  1887
This in general only affects hand-written proof tactics, simprocs and
haftmann@25184
  1888
so on.  INCOMPATIBILITY: grep your sourcecode and replace names.
haftmann@25184
  1889
Consider using @{const_name} antiquotation.
haftmann@25184
  1890
haftmann@25184
  1891
* New class "default" with associated constant "default".
haftmann@25184
  1892
haftmann@25184
  1893
* Function "sgn" is now overloaded and available on int, real, complex
haftmann@25184
  1894
(and other numeric types), using class "sgn".  Two possible defs of
haftmann@25184
  1895
sgn are given as equational assumptions in the classes sgn_if and
haftmann@25184
  1896
sgn_div_norm; ordered_idom now also inherits from sgn_if.
haftmann@25184
  1897
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1898
haftmann@25184
  1899
* Locale "partial_order" now unified with class "order" (cf. theory
haftmann@25184
  1900
Orderings), added parameter "less".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1901
haftmann@25184
  1902
* Renamings in classes "order" and "linorder": facts "refl", "trans" and
haftmann@25184
  1903
"cases" to "order_refl", "order_trans" and "linorder_cases", to avoid
haftmann@25184
  1904
clashes with HOL "refl" and "trans".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1905
haftmann@25184
  1906
* Classes "order" and "linorder": potential INCOMPATIBILITY due to
haftmann@25184
  1907
changed order of proof goals in instance proofs.
haftmann@25184
  1908
haftmann@25184
  1909
* The transitivity reasoner for partial and linear orders is set up
haftmann@25184
  1910
for classes "order" and "linorder".  Instances of the reasoner are available
haftmann@25184
  1911
in all contexts importing or interpreting the corresponding locales.
haftmann@25184
  1912
Method "order" invokes the reasoner separately; the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1913
is also integrated with the Simplifier as a solver.  Diagnostic
haftmann@25184
  1914
command 'print_orders' shows the available instances of the reasoner
haftmann@25184
  1915
in the current context.
haftmann@25184
  1916
haftmann@25184
  1917
* Localized monotonicity predicate in theory "Orderings"; integrated
haftmann@25184
  1918
lemmas max_of_mono and min_of_mono with this predicate.
haftmann@25184
  1919
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@25184
  1920
haftmann@25184
  1921
* Formulation of theorem "dense" changed slightly due to integration
haftmann@25184
  1922
with new class dense_linear_order.
haftmann@25184
  1923
haftmann@25184
  1924
* Uniform lattice theory development in HOL.
haftmann@25184
  1925
haftmann@25184
  1926
    constants "meet" and "join" now named "inf" and "sup"
haftmann@25184
  1927
    constant "Meet" now named "Inf"
haftmann@25184
  1928
haftmann@25184
  1929
    classes "meet_semilorder" and "join_semilorder" now named
haftmann@25184
  1930
      "lower_semilattice" and "upper_semilattice"
haftmann@25184
  1931
    class "lorder" now named "lattice"

  1932
    class "comp_lat" now named "complete_lattice"
haftmann@25184
  1933
haftmann@25184
  1934
    Instantiation of lattice classes allows explicit definitions
haftmann@25184
  1935
    for "inf" and "sup" operations (or "Inf" and "Sup" for complete lattices).

  2075
    codes; includes Code_Integer.
wenzelm@24800
  2076
  - Executable_Set allows to generate code for finite sets using lists.
wenzelm@24800
  2077
  - Executable_Rat implements rational numbers as triples (sign, enumerator,
haftmann@23850
  2078
    denominator).
wenzelm@24800
  2079
  - Executable_Real implements a subset of real numbers, namly those
haftmann@23850
  2080
    representable by rational numbers.
wenzelm@24800
  2081
  - Efficient_Nat implements natural numbers by integers, which in general will
haftmann@23850
  2082
    result in higher efficency; pattern matching with 0/Suc is eliminated;
haftmann@24993
  2083
    includes Code_Integer.
haftmann@24993
  2084
  - Code_Index provides an additional datatype index which is mapped to
haftmann@24993
  2085
    target-language built-in integers.
haftmann@26355
  2086
  - Code_Message provides an additional datatype message_string which is isomorphic to
haftmann@24993
  2087
    strings; messages are mapped to target-language strings.

* New package for inductive predicates
berghofe@23783
  2090
berghofe@23783
  2091
  An n-ary predicate p with m parameters z_1, ..., z_m can now be defined via
berghofe@23783
  2092
berghofe@23783
  2093
    inductive

berghofe@23783
  2111

  For backward compatibility, there is a wrapper allowing inductive

  2138
  INCOMPATIBILITIES:
berghofe@23783
  2139
berghofe@23783
  2140
  - Since declaration and definition of inductive sets or predicates
wenzelm@24800
  2141
    is no longer separated, abbreviations involving the newly
wenzelm@24800
  2142
    introduced sets or predicates must be specified together with the
wenzelm@24800
  2143
    introduction rules after the 'where' keyword (see above), rather
wenzelm@24800
  2144
    than before the actual inductive definition.
wenzelm@24800
  2145
wenzelm@24800
  2146
  - The variables in induction and elimination rules are now
wenzelm@24800
  2147
    quantified in the order of their occurrence in the introduction
wenzelm@24800
  2148
    rules, rather than in alphabetical order. Since this may break
wenzelm@24800
  2149
    some proofs, these proofs either have to be repaired, e.g. by
wenzelm@24800
  2150
    reordering the variables a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i} in Isar 'case'
wenzelm@24800
  2151
    statements of the form
berghofe@23783
  2152
berghofe@23783
  2153
      case (rule_i a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i})
berghofe@23783
  2154
berghofe@23783
  2155
    or the old order of quantification has to be restored by explicitly adding
berghofe@23783
  2156
    meta-level quantifiers in the introduction rules, i.e.
berghofe@23783
  2157
berghofe@23783
  2158
      | rule_i: "!!a_i_1 ... a_i_{k_i}. ... ==> p z_1 ... z_m t_i_1 ... t_i_n"
berghofe@23783
  2159
berghofe@23783
  2160
  - The format of the elimination rules is now
berghofe@23783
  2161
berghofe@23783
  2162
      p z_1 ... z_m x_1 ... x_n ==>
berghofe@23783

        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2164
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2165
berghofe@23783
  2166
    for predicates and
berghofe@23783
  2167
berghofe@23783
  2168
      (x_1, ..., x_n) : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2169
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x_1 = t_1_1 ==> ... ==> x_n = t_1_n ==> ... ==> P)
berghofe@23783
  2170
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2171
berghofe@23783
  2172
    for sets rather than
berghofe@23783
  2173
berghofe@23783
  2174
      x : s z_1 ... z_m ==>
berghofe@23783
  2175
        (!!a_1_1 ... a_1_{k_1}. x = (t_1_1, ..., t_1_n) ==> ... ==> P)

  2176
        ==> ... ==> P
berghofe@23783
  2177
wenzelm@24800
  2178
    This may require terms in goals to be expanded to n-tuples
wenzelm@24800
  2179
    (e.g. using case_tac or simplification with the split_paired_all
wenzelm@24800
  2180
    rule) before the above elimination rule is applicable.
wenzelm@24800
  2181
wenzelm@24800
  2182
  - The elimination or case analysis rules for (mutually) inductive
wenzelm@24800
  2183
    sets or predicates are now called "p_1.cases" ... "p_k.cases". The
wenzelm@24800
  2184
    list of rules "p_1_..._p_k.elims" is no longer available.
berghofe@23783
  2185
krauss@25198
  2186
* New package "function"/"fun" for general recursive functions,
krauss@25198
  2187
supporting mutual and nested recursion, definitions in local contexts,
krauss@25198
  2188
more general pattern matching and partiality. See HOL/ex/Fundefs.thy
krauss@25198
  2189
for small examples, and the separate tutorial on the function
krauss@25198
  2190
package. The old recdef "package" is still available as before, but
krauss@25198
  2191
users are encouraged to use the new package.
krauss@25198
  2192
krauss@25198
  2193
* Method "lexicographic_order" automatically synthesizes termination
krauss@25198
  2194
relations as lexicographic combinations of size measures. 
krauss@25198
  2195
wenzelm@24800
  2196
* Case-expressions allow arbitrary constructor-patterns (including
wenzelm@24800
  2197
"_") and take their order into account, like in functional
wenzelm@24800
  2198
programming.  Internally, this is translated into nested
wenzelm@24800
  2199
case-expressions; missing cases are added and mapped to the predefined
wenzelm@24800
  2200
constant "undefined". In complicated cases printing may no longer show
wenzelm@24800
  2201
the original input but the internal form. Lambda-abstractions allow
wenzelm@24800
  2202
the same form of pattern matching: "% pat1 => e1 | ..." is an
wenzelm@24800
  2203
abbreviation for "%x. case x of pat1 => e1 | ..." where x is a new
wenzelm@24800
  2204
variable.
nipkow@23564
  2205
huffman@23468
  2206
* IntDef: The constant "int :: nat => int" has been removed; now "int"
wenzelm@24800
  2207
is an abbreviation for "of_nat :: nat => int". The simplification
wenzelm@24800
  2208
rules for "of_nat" have been changed to work like "int" did
wenzelm@24800
  2209
previously.  Potential INCOMPATIBILITY:
huffman@23468
  2210
  - "of_nat (Suc m)" simplifies to "1 + of_nat m" instead of "of_nat m + 1"
huffman@23468
  2211
  - of_nat_diff and of_nat_mult are no longer default simp rules
huffman@23377
  2212
chaieb@23295
  2213
* Method "algebra" solves polynomial equations over (semi)rings using
wenzelm@24800
  2214
Groebner bases. The (semi)ring structure is defined by locales and the
wenzelm@24800
  2215
tool setup depends on that generic context. Installing the method for
wenzelm@24800
  2216
a specific type involves instantiating the locale and possibly adding
wenzelm@24800
  2217
declarations for computation on the coefficients.  The method is
wenzelm@24800
  2218
already instantiated for natural numbers and for the axiomatic class
wenzelm@24800
  2219
of idoms with numerals.  See also the paper by Chaieb and Wenzel at
wenzelm@24800
  2220
CALCULEMUS 2007 for the general principles underlying this
wenzelm@24800
  2221
architecture of context-aware proof-tools.
wenzelm@24800
  2222
wenzelm@25033
  2223
* Method "ferrack" implements quantifier elimination over
wenzelm@25033
  2224
special-purpose dense linear orders using locales (analogous to
wenzelm@25033
  2225
"algebra"). The method is already installed for class
wenzelm@25033
  2226
{ordered_field,recpower,number_ring} which subsumes real, hyperreal,
wenzelm@25033
  2227
rat, etc.
wenzelm@25033
  2228
wenzelm@24800
  2229
* Former constant "List.op @" now named "List.append".  Use ML
wenzelm@24800
  2230
antiquotations @{const_name List.append} or @{term " ... @ ... "} to
wenzelm@24800
  2231
circumvent possible incompatibilities when working on ML level.
wenzelm@24800
  2232
haftmann@24996
  2233
* primrec: missing cases mapped to "undefined" instead of "arbitrary".
haftmann@22845
  2234
wenzelm@24800
  2235
* New function listsum :: 'a list => 'a for arbitrary monoids.
wenzelm@24800
  2236
Special syntax: "SUM x <- xs. f x" (and latex variants)
wenzelm@24800
  2237
wenzelm@24800
  2238
* New syntax for Haskell-like list comprehension (input only), eg.
wenzelm@25177
  2239
[(x,y). x <- xs, y <- ys, x ~= y], see also src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2240
wenzelm@24800
  2241
* The special syntax for function "filter" has changed from [x :
wenzelm@24800
  2242
xs. P] to [x <- xs. P] to avoid an ambiguity caused by list
wenzelm@24800
  2243
comprehension syntax, and for uniformity.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2244
wenzelm@24800
  2245
* [a..b] is now defined for arbitrary linear orders.  It used to be
wenzelm@24800
  2246
defined on nat only, as an abbreviation for [a..<Suc b]
wenzelm@24800
  2247
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2248
wenzelm@24800
  2249
* Renamed lemma "set_take_whileD"  to "set_takeWhileD".
wenzelm@24800
  2250
wenzelm@25177
  2251
* New functions "sorted" and "sort" in src/HOL/List.thy.
wenzelm@24800
  2252
wenzelm@24800
  2253
* New lemma collection field_simps (an extension of ring_simps) for
wenzelm@24800
  2254
manipulating (in)equations involving division. Multiplies with all
wenzelm@24800
  2255
denominators that can be proved to be non-zero (in equations) or
wenzelm@24800
  2256
positive/negative (in inequations).
nipkow@23480
  2257
nipkow@23480
  2258
* Lemma collections ring_eq_simps, group_eq_simps and ring_distrib
wenzelm@24800
  2259
have been improved and renamed to ring_simps, group_simps and
wenzelm@24800
  2260
ring_distribs.  Removed lemmas field_xyz in theory Ring_and_Field
wenzelm@24800
  2261
because they were subsumed by lemmas xyz.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2262
wenzelm@25177
  2263
* Theory Library/Commutative_Ring: switched from recdef to function
wenzelm@24800
  2264
package; constants add, mul, pow now curried.  Infix syntax for
wenzelm@24800
  2265
algebraic operations.
haftmann@22735
  2266
wenzelm@24800
  2267
* Dropped redundant lemma def_imp_eq in favor of meta_eq_to_obj_eq.
haftmann@22218
  2268
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2269
wenzelm@24800
  2270
* Dropped redundant lemma if_def2 in favor of if_bool_eq_conj.
haftmann@22218
  2271
INCOMPATIBILITY.
haftmann@22218
  2272
wenzelm@22126
  2273
* HOL/records: generalised field-update to take a function on the
wenzelm@22126
  2274
field rather than the new value: r(|A := x|) is translated to A_update
wenzelm@22126
  2275
(K x) r The K-combinator that is internally used is called K_record.
schirmer@21226
  2276
INCOMPATIBILITY: Usage of the plain update functions has to be
schirmer@21226
  2277
adapted.
schirmer@21226
  2278
 
wenzelm@24800
  2279
* Class "semiring_0" now contains annihilation axioms x * 0 = 0 and 0
wenzelm@24800
  2280
* x = 0, which are required for a semiring.  Richer structures do not
wenzelm@24800
  2281
inherit from semiring_0 anymore, because this property is a theorem
wenzelm@24800
  2282
there, not an axiom.  INCOMPATIBILITY: In instances of semiring_0,
wenzelm@24800
  2283
there is more to prove, but this is mostly trivial.
wenzelm@24800
  2284
wenzelm@24800
  2285
* Class "recpower" is generalized to arbitrary monoids, not just
wenzelm@24800
  2286
commutative semirings.  INCOMPATIBILITY: may need to incorporate
haftmann@25163
  2287
commutativity or semiring properties additionally.
haftmann@21215
  2288
haftmann@21099
  2289
* Constant "List.list_all2" in List.thy now uses authentic syntax.
wenzelm@24800
  2290
INCOMPATIBILITY: translations containing list_all2 may go wrong,
wenzelm@24800
  2291
better use 'abbreviation'.
wenzelm@24800
  2292
wenzelm@24800
  2293
* Renamed constant "List.op mem" to "List.member".  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2294
wenzelm@22126
  2295
* Numeral syntax: type 'bin' which was a mere type copy of 'int' has
wenzelm@24800
  2296
been abandoned in favour of plain 'int'.  INCOMPATIBILITY --
wenzelm@22126
  2297
significant changes for setting up numeral syntax for types:
wenzelm@24800
  2298
  - New constants Numeral.pred and Numeral.succ instead
haftmann@20485
  2299
      of former Numeral.bin_pred and Numeral.bin_succ.
haftmann@20485
  2300
  - Use integer operations instead of bin_add, bin_mult and so on.
haftmann@20485
  2301
  - Numeral simplification theorems named Numeral.numeral_simps instead of Bin_simps.
haftmann@20485
  2302
  - ML structure Bin_Simprocs now named Int_Numeral_Base_Simprocs.
haftmann@20485
  2303
wenzelm@25177
  2304
See src/HOL/Integ/IntArith.thy for an example setup.
wenzelm@25177
  2305
wenzelm@25177
  2306
* Command 'normal_form' computes the normal form of a term that may
wenzelm@25177
  2307
contain free variables.  For example ``normal_form "rev [a, b, c]"''
wenzelm@25177
  2308
produces ``[b, c, a]'' (without proof).  This command is suitable for
wenzelm@25177
  2309
heavy-duty computations because the functions are compiled to ML
wenzelm@25177
  2310
first.  Correspondingly, a method "normalization" is provided.  See
wenzelm@25177
  2311
further src/HOL/ex/NormalForm.thy and src/Tools/nbe.ML.
nipkow@19895
  2312
wenzelm@17996
  2313
* Alternative iff syntax "A <-> B" for equality on bool (with priority
wenzelm@17996
  2314
25 like -->); output depends on the "iff" print_mode, the default is
wenzelm@17996
  2315
"A = B" (with priority 50).
wenzelm@17996
  2316
wenzelm@21265
  2317
* Relations less (<) and less_eq (<=) are also available on type bool.
wenzelm@21265
  2318
Modified syntax to disallow nesting without explicit parentheses,
wenzelm@24800
  2319
e.g. "(x < y) < z" or "x < (y < z)", but NOT "x < y < z".  Potential
wenzelm@24800
  2320
INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@21265
  2321
nipkow@18674
  2322
* "LEAST x:A. P" expands to "LEAST x. x:A & P" (input only).

* Relation composition operator "op O" now has precedence 75 and binds
krauss@20716
  2325
stronger than union and intersection. INCOMPATIBILITY.
krauss@20716
  2326
wenzelm@22126
  2327
* The old set interval syntax "{m..n(}" (and relatives) has been
wenzelm@22126
  2328
removed.  Use "{m..<n}" (and relatives) instead.
nipkow@19377
  2329
wenzelm@17865
  2330
* In the context of the assumption "~(s = t)" the Simplifier rewrites
wenzelm@24800
  2331
"t = s" to False (by simproc "neq").  INCOMPATIBILITY, consider using
wenzelm@24800
  2332
``declare [[simproc del: neq]]''.
wenzelm@24800
  2333
wenzelm@24800
  2334
* Simplifier: "m dvd n" where m and n are numbers is evaluated to
wenzelm@24800
  2335
True/False.
wenzelm@24800
  2336
wenzelm@24800
  2337
* Theorem Cons_eq_map_conv no longer declared as "simp".
nipkow@19211
  2338
ballarin@19279
  2339
* Theorem setsum_mult renamed to setsum_right_distrib.
ballarin@19279
  2340
nipkow@19211
  2341
* Prefer ex1I over ex_ex1I in single-step reasoning, e.g. by the
wenzelm@22126
  2342
``rule'' method.
wenzelm@22126
  2343
wenzelm@24800
  2344
* Reimplemented methods "sat" and "satx", with several improvements:
wenzelm@24800
  2345
goals no longer need to be stated as "<prems> ==> False", equivalences
wenzelm@24800
  2346
(i.e. "=" on type bool) are handled, variable names of the form
wenzelm@24800
  2347
"lit_<n>" are no longer reserved, significant speedup.
wenzelm@24800
  2348
wenzelm@24800
  2349
* Methods "sat" and "satx" can now replay MiniSat proof traces.
wenzelm@22126
  2350
zChaff is still supported as well.
wenzelm@22126
  2351
wenzelm@22126
  2352
* 'inductive' and 'datatype': provide projections of mutual rules,
wenzelm@22126
  2353
bundled as foo_bar.inducts;
wenzelm@22126
  2354
wenzelm@22126
  2355
* Library: moved theories Parity, GCD, Binomial, Infinite_Set to
wenzelm@22126
  2356
Library.
wenzelm@21256
  2357
wenzelm@21256
  2358
* Library: moved theory Accessible_Part to main HOL.
wenzelm@19572
  2359
wenzelm@18446
  2360
* Library: added theory Coinductive_List of potentially infinite lists
wenzelm@18446
  2361
as greatest fixed-point.
wenzelm@18399
  2362
wenzelm@19254
  2363
* Library: added theory AssocList which implements (finite) maps as
schirmer@19252
  2364
association lists.
webertj@17809
  2365
wenzelm@24800
  2366
* Method "evaluation" solves goals (i.e. a boolean expression)
wenzelm@24800
  2367
efficiently by compiling it to ML.  The goal is "proved" (via an
wenzelm@24800
  2368
oracle) if it evaluates to True.
wenzelm@20807
  2369
wenzelm@20807
  2370
* Linear arithmetic now splits certain operators (e.g. min, max, abs)
wenzelm@24800
  2371
also when invoked by the simplifier.  This results in the Simplifier
wenzelm@24800
  2372
being more powerful on arithmetic goals.  INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@24800
  2373
Configuration option fast_arith_split_limit=0 recovers the old
wenzelm@24800
  2374
behavior.
webertj@20217
  2375
wenzelm@22126
  2376
* Support for hex (0x20) and binary (0b1001) numerals.
wenzelm@19254
  2377
wenzelm@20807
  2378
* New method: reify eqs (t), where eqs are equations for an
wenzelm@20807
  2379
interpretation I :: 'a list => 'b => 'c and t::'c is an optional
wenzelm@20807
  2380
parameter, computes a term s::'b and a list xs::'a list and proves the
wenzelm@20807
  2381
theorem I xs s = t. This is also known as reification or quoting. The
wenzelm@20807
  2382
resulting theorem is applied to the subgoal to substitute t with I xs
wenzelm@20807
  2383
s.  If t is omitted, the subgoal itself is reified.
wenzelm@20807
  2384
wenzelm@20807
  2385
* New method: reflection corr_thm eqs (t). The parameters eqs and (t)
wenzelm@20807
  2386
are as explained above. corr_thm is a theorem for I vs (f t) = I vs t,
wenzelm@20807
  2387
where f is supposed to be a computable function (in the sense of code
wenzelm@20807
  2388
generattion). The method uses reify to compute s and xs as above then
wenzelm@20807
  2389
applies corr_thm and uses normalization by evaluation to "prove" f s =
wenzelm@20807
  2390
r and finally gets the theorem t = r, which is again applied to the
wenzelm@25177
  2391
subgoal. An Example is available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy.
wenzelm@25177
  2392
wenzelm@25177
  2393
* Reflection: Automatic reification now handels binding, an example is
wenzelm@25177
  2394
available in src/HOL/ex/ReflectionEx.thy
wenzelm@20807
  2395
wenzelm@25397
  2396
* HOL-Statespace: ``State Spaces: The Locale Way'' introduces a
schirmer@25409
  2397
command 'statespace' that is similar to 'record', but introduces an
wenzelm@25397
  2398
abstract specification based on the locale infrastructure instead of
wenzelm@25397
  2399
HOL types.  This leads to extra flexibility in composing state spaces,
wenzelm@25397
  2400
in particular multiple inheritance and renaming of components.

huffman@22971
  2406
inputs so that root n (- x) = - root n x and sqrt (- x) = - sqrt x.
huffman@22971
  2407
Nonnegativity side conditions have been removed from many lemmas, so
huffman@22971

  2487
(even on SML/NJ).
wenzelm@24643

  2518
ML_Context.trace enabled.
wenzelm@22152
  2519
wenzelm@19032
  2520
* Pure/General/table.ML: the join operations now works via exceptions
wenzelm@24706
  2521
DUP/SAME instead of type option. This is simpler in simple cases, and
wenzelm@19081
  2522
admits slightly more efficient complex applications.
wenzelm@18446
  2523
wenzelm@24800
  2524
* Pure: 'advanced' translation functions (parse_translation etc.) now
wenzelm@24800
  2525
use Context.generic instead of just theory.
wenzelm@24800
  2526
wenzelm@18642
  2527
* Pure: datatype Context.generic joins theory/Proof.context and
wenzelm@18644
  2528
provides some facilities for code that works in either kind of
wenzelm@18642
  2529
context, notably GenericDataFun for uniform theory and proof data.
wenzelm@18642
  2530
wenzelm@18737
  2531
* Pure: simplified internal attribute type, which is now always
wenzelm@24706
  2532
Context.generic * thm -> Context.generic * thm. Global (theory) vs.
wenzelm@24706
  2533
local (Proof.context) attributes have been discontinued, while
wenzelm@24706
  2534
minimizing code duplication. Thm.rule_attribute and

declarations and definitions.
wenzelm@19006
  2539
wenzelm@24800
  2540
* Context data interfaces (Theory/Proof/GenericDataFun): removed
wenzelm@24800
  2541
name/print, uninitialized data defaults to ad-hoc copy of empty value,
wenzelm@24800
  2542
init only required for impure data. INCOMPATIBILITY: empty really need

  2543
to be empty (no dependencies on theory content!)
wenzelm@24800
  2544
wenzelm@19508
  2545
* Pure/kernel: consts certification ignores sort constraints given in
wenzelm@24800
  2546
signature declarations. (This information is not relevant to the
wenzelm@24800
  2547
logic, but only for type inference.) SIGNIFICANT INTERNAL CHANGE,

  2548
potential INCOMPATIBILITY.
wenzelm@19508
  2549
wenzelm@19508
  2550
* Pure: axiomatic type classes are now purely definitional, with
wenzelm@19508
  2551
explicit proofs of class axioms and super class relations performed
wenzelm@24706
  2552
internally. See Pure/axclass.ML for the main internal interfaces --
wenzelm@19508
  2553
notably AxClass.define_class supercedes AxClass.add_axclass, and
wenzelm@24706
  2554
AxClass.axiomatize_class/classrel/arity supersede
wenzelm@19508
  2555
Sign.add_classes/classrel/arities.
wenzelm@19508
  2556
wenzelm@19006
  2557
* Pure/Isar: Args/Attrib parsers operate on Context.generic --
wenzelm@19006
  2558
global/local versions on theory vs. Proof.context have been
wenzelm@19006
  2559
discontinued; Attrib.syntax and Method.syntax have been adapted
wenzelm@19006
  2560
accordingly.  INCOMPATIBILITY, need to adapt parser expressions for
wenzelm@19006
  2561
attributes, methods, etc.
wenzelm@18642
  2562
wenzelm@18446
  2563
* Pure: several functions of signature "... -> theory -> theory * ..."
wenzelm@18446
  2564
have been reoriented to "... -> theory -> ... * theory" in order to
wenzelm@18446
  2565
allow natural usage in combination with the ||>, ||>>, |-> and
wenzelm@18446
  2566
fold_map combinators.
haftmann@18051
  2567
wenzelm@21647
  2568
* Pure: official theorem names (closed derivations) and additional
wenzelm@21647
  2569
comments (tags) are now strictly separate.  Name hints -- which are
wenzelm@21647
  2570
maintained as tags -- may be attached any time without affecting the
wenzelm@21647
  2571
derivation.
wenzelm@21647
  2572
wenzelm@18020
  2573
* Pure: primitive rule lift_rule now takes goal cterm instead of an
wenzelm@18145
  2574
actual goal state (thm).  Use Thm.lift_rule (Thm.cprem_of st i) to
wenzelm@18020
  2575
achieve the old behaviour.
wenzelm@18020
  2576
wenzelm@18020
  2577
* Pure: the "Goal" constant is now called "prop", supporting a
wenzelm@18020
  2578
slightly more general idea of ``protecting'' meta-level rule
wenzelm@18020
  2579
statements.
wenzelm@18020
  2580
wenzelm@20040
  2581
* Pure: Logic.(un)varify only works in a global context, which is now
wenzelm@20040
  2582
enforced instead of silently assumed.  INCOMPATIBILITY, may use
wenzelm@20040
  2583
Logic.legacy_(un)varify as temporary workaround.
wenzelm@20040
  2584
wenzelm@20090
  2585
* Pure: structure Name provides scalable operations for generating
wenzelm@20090
  2586
internal variable names, notably Name.variants etc.  This replaces
wenzelm@20090
  2587
some popular functions from term.ML:

  2589
  Term.variant		->  Name.variant
wenzelm@24800
  2590
  Term.variantlist	->  Name.variant_list
wenzelm@20090
  2591
  Term.invent_names	->  Name.invent_list

  2593
Note that low-level renaming rarely occurs in new code -- operations
wenzelm@20090
  2594
from structure Variable are used instead (see below).
wenzelm@20090
  2595
wenzelm@20040
  2596
* Pure: structure Variable provides fundamental operations for proper
wenzelm@20040
  2597
treatment of fixed/schematic variables in a context.  For example,
wenzelm@20040
  2598
Variable.import introduces fixes for schematics of given facts and
wenzelm@20040
  2599
Variable.export reverses the effect (up to renaming) -- this replaces
wenzelm@20040
  2600
various freeze_thaw operations.

  2602
* Pure: structure Goal provides simple interfaces for
wenzelm@17981
  2603
init/conclude/finish and tactical prove operations (replacing former
wenzelm@20040
  2604
Tactic.prove).  Goal.prove is the canonical way to prove results
wenzelm@20040
  2605
within a given context; Goal.prove_global is a degraded version for
wenzelm@20040
  2606
theory level goals, including a global Drule.standard.  Note that
wenzelm@20040
  2607
OldGoals.prove_goalw_cterm has long been obsolete, since it is
wenzelm@20040
  2608
ill-behaved in a local proof context (e.g. with local fixes/assumes or
wenzelm@20040
  2609
in a locale context).

  2611
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for parsing (Syntax.parse_term etc.)
wenzelm@24706
  2612
and type checking (Syntax.check_term etc.), with common combinations
wenzelm@24706
  2613
(Syntax.read_term etc.). These supersede former Sign.read_term etc.
wenzelm@24706
  2614
which are considered legacy and await removal.
wenzelm@24706
  2615
wenzelm@24920
  2616
* Pure/Syntax: generic interfaces for type unchecking
wenzelm@24920
  2617
(Syntax.uncheck_terms etc.) and unparsing (Syntax.unparse_term etc.),
wenzelm@24920
  2618
with common combinations (Syntax.pretty_term, Syntax.string_of_term
wenzelm@24920
  2619
etc.).  Former Sign.pretty_term, Sign.string_of_term etc. are still
wenzelm@24924
  2620
available for convenience, but refer to the very same operations using
wenzelm@24924
  2621
a mere theory instead of a full context.

* Isar: simplified treatment of user-level errors, using exception
wenzelm@18687
  2624
ERROR of string uniformly.  Function error now merely raises ERROR,
wenzelm@18686
  2625
without any side effect on output channels.  The Isar toplevel takes
wenzelm@18686
  2626
care of proper display of ERROR exceptions.  ML code may use plain
wenzelm@18686
  2627
handle/can/try; cat_error may be used to concatenate errors like this:
wenzelm@18686
  2628
wenzelm@18686
  2629
  ... handle ERROR msg => cat_error msg "..."
wenzelm@18686

Toplevel ML code (run directly or through the Isar toplevel) may be
