Mechanically checked, formal reasoning as envisioned by Leibniz has in the past few decades
become a reality. Proof assistants are programs that can rigorously and mechanically check the
details of logical arguments. Such formal reasoning has applications to nearly all areas of com-
puter science, from formal proof in mathematics to specifying and verifying critical properties of
hardware, software systems, and security protocols.
