POPLmark Challenge via De Bruijn Indices

Stefan Berghofer

2 August 2007


We present a solution to the POPLmark challenge designed by Aydemir et al., which has as a goal the formalization of the meta-theory of System F<:. The formalization is carried out in the theorem prover Isabelle/HOL using an encoding based on de Bruijn indices. We start with a relatively simple formalization covering only the basic features of System F<:, and explain how it can be extended to also cover records and more advanced binding constructs.
