Course material and exercises

The course material page makes slides, demos, and exercises of a growing number of Isabelle courses available. It is meant as a resource for people who would like to learn Isabelle as well as for those who would like to teach it.

Project partners

Isabelle is a joint project between Larry Paulson (University of Cambridge, UK) and Tobias Nipkow (Technische Universität München, Germany).

Both sites employ numerous activities around Isabelle; for details, have a look at the local websites in Cambridge and Munich; there is also an (incomplete) list of past and present projects undertaken using Isabelle.
