A Decision Procedure for Geometry in Coq


We present in this paper the development of a decision procedure for affine plane geometry in the Coq proof assistant. Among the existing decision methods, we have chosen to implement one based on the area method developed by Chou, Gao and Zhang, which provides short and ``readable'' proofs for geometry theorems. The idea of the method is to express the goal to be proved using three geometric quantities and eliminate points in the reverse order of their construction thanks to some elimination lemmas.
