About

This website is a reimagining of the Archive of Formal Proofs, a collection of proof libraries, examples, and larger scientific developments, mechanically checked in the theorem prover Isabelle. The entries are updated daily to match the upstream repository.

The repository for this website will be released freely in the summer of 2021.

Development

This is a project from the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh by:

  • Carlin MacKenzie, MInf Informatics
  • James Vaughan, PhD Student, AIAI
  • Jacques Fleuriot, Director of Institute, AIAI

Why

We aim to strengthen the community and to foster the development of formal proofs.

We hope that the Archive will provide:

  • a resource of knowledge, examples, and libraries for users,
  • a large and relevant test bed of theories for Isabelle developers, and
  • a central, citable place for authors to publish their theories

We encourage authors of publications that contain Isabelle developments to make their theories available in the Archive of Formal Proofs and to refer to the archive entry in their publication. It makes it easier for referees to check the validity of theorems (all entries in the Archive are mechanically checked), it makes it easier for readers of the publication to understand details of your development, and it makes it easier to use and build on your work.
