INTEGRATING AUTOMATED AND INTERACTIVE
THEOREM PROVING
1. INTRODUCTION
Automated and interactive theorem proving are the two main directions in
the field of deduction. Most chapters of this book belong to either the one
or the other, whether focusing on theory, on methods or on systems. This
reflects the fact that, for a long time, research in computer-aided reasoning
was divided into these two directions, driven forward by different communi-
ties. Both groups offer powerful tools for different kinds of tasks, with differ-
ent solutions, leading to different performance and application profiles. Some
important examples are: ACL2 (Kaufmann and Moore, 1988), HOL (Gor-
don, 1988), IMPS (Farmer et al., 1996), Isabelle (Paulson, 1994), KIV (Reif
et al., 1997) (see also Chapter I.3.14), NQTHM (Boyer and Moore, 1979),
and PVS (Owre et al., 1992) for the interactive (or tactical) theorem proving
community; and KoMeT (Bibel et al., 1994), Otter (Wos et al., 1992), Pro-
tein (Baumgartner and Furbach, 1994), Setheo (Goller et al., 1994), Spass
(Weidenbach et al., 1996), and 3TAP (Beckert et al., 1996) for the automated
theorem proving community.
In this chapter we present a project to integrate interactive and automated
