Verified Programs with Binders


Programs that treat datatypes with binders, such as theorem provers or higher-order compilers, are regularly used for mission-critical purposes, and must be both reliable and performant. Formally proving such programs using as much automation as possible is highly desirable. In this paper, we propose a generic approach to handle datatypes with binders both in the program and its specification in a way that facilitates automated reasoning about such datatypes and also leads to a reasonably efficient code. Our method is implemented in the \Why environment for program verification. We validate it on the examples of a lambda-interpreter with several reduction strategies and a simple tableaux-based theorem prover.
