Using Deduction Modulo in Set Theory


We present some improvements of Zenon Modulo and the application of this tool to sets of problems coming from set theory. Zenon Modulo is an extension of the tableau-based first order automated theorem prover Zenon to deduction modulo. Deduction modulo is an ex-tension of predicate calculus, which allows us to rewrite terms as well as propositions, and which is well-suited for proof-search in axiomatic theories, as it turns axioms into rewrite rules. The improvements dis-cussed here consist in a better heuristic to automatically build rewrite systems given a set of axioms, and some optimizations in the rewrit-ing process used during the proof search. We also present some updated results obtained on benchmarks provided by the TPTP library for set theory categories. Finally, we discuss some recent work about the appli-cation of our tool to the B method set theory, in particular the way we treat equality and the comprehension scheme.
