### Interactive theorem proving

If our main goal with Dedukti is to import, transform, and export proofs developed in other systems, we also want to investigate how Dedukti can be used as the basis of an interactive theorem prover. This leads to two new scientific questions: first, how much can a tactic system be theory independent, and then how does rewriting extends the possibility to write tactics.

This has led to the development of a new version of Dedukti , which supports metavariables. Several tactics have been developed for this system, which are intended to help a human user to write proofs in our system instead of writing proof terms by hand. This work is a continuation of the previous work the team did on Demon , which was an extension of Dedukti , whereas the support for interactive theorem proving is now native in Dedukti .
