coq-autosubst 1-coq86-devel.fa6ef30 Coq library for parallel de Bruijn substitutions
Formalizing syntactic theories with variable binders is not easy. Autosubst is a library for the Coq proof assistant to automate this process. Given an inductive definition of syntactic objects in de Bruijn representation augmented with binding annotations, Autosubst synthesizes the parallel substitution operation and automatically proves the basic lemmas about substitutions. This library contains an automation tactic that solves equations involving terms and substitutions. This makes the usage of substitution lemmas unnecessary. The tactic is based on our current work on a decision procedure for the equational theory of an extension of the sigma-calculus by Abadi et al. The library is completely written in Coq and uses Ltac to synthesize the substitution operation.
