Semantics of Mizar as an Isabelle Object Logic

Cezary Kaliszyk, Karol Pąk

Journal of Automated Reasoning pp. 1 – 39, 2018.


We formally define the foundations of the Mizar system as an object logic in the Isabelle logical framework. For this, we propose adequate mechanisms to represent the various components of Mizar. We express Mizar types in a uniform way, provide a common type intersection operation, allow reasoning about type inhabitation, and develop a type inference mechanism. We provide Mizar-like definition mechanisms which require the same proof obligations and provide same derived properties. Structures and set comprehension operators can be defined as definitional extensions. Re-formalized proofs from various parts of the Mizar Library show the practical usability of the specified foundations.
