Encoding Proofs in Dedukti: the case of Coq proofs


A main ambition of the Inria project Dedukti is to serve as a common language for representing and type checking proof objects originating from other proof systems. Encoding these proof objects makes heavy use of the rewriting capabilities of LambdaPiModulo, the formal system on which Dedukti is based. So far, the proofs generated by two automatic proof systems, Zenon and iProver, have been encoded, and can therefore be read and checked by Dedukti. But Dedukti goes far beyond this so-called hammering technique of sending goals to automated provers. Proofs from HOL and Matita can be encoded as well. Some Coq’s proofs can be encoded already, when they do not use universe polymorphism. Our ambition here is to close this remaining gap. To this end, we describe a rewrite-based encoding in LambdaPiModulo of the Calculus of Constructions with a cumulative hierarchy of predicative universes above Prop, which is confluent on open terms.
