Highlights of the year
The team has developed the theme of focused proof search to broaden its proof theoretical and game theoretic basis as well as to support a number of computer science applications. Additional advances were made on an approach to reasoning with bindings in syntactic expressions. Together with a team at the University of Minneapolis, we have implemented two prototype provers, Abella and Taci, which have been used to explore the effectiveness of both these theoretical threads.
