Abstract

Minlog is a proof assistant which automatically extracts computational content in an extension of Gödel’s T from formalized proofs. We report on extending Minlog to deal with predicates defined using a particular combination of induction and coinduction, via so-called nested definitions. In order to increase the efficiency of the extracted programs, we have also implemented a feature to translate terms into Haskell programs. To illustrate our theory and implementation, a formalisation of a theory of uniformly continuous functions due to Berger is presented.
