A TLA+ Proof System


We describe an extension to the TLA+ specification language with constructs for writing proofs and a proof environment, called the Proof Manager (PM), to checks those proofs. The language and the PM support the incremental development and checking of hierarchically structured proofs. The PM translates a proof into a set of independent proof obligations and calls upon a collection of back-end provers to verify them. Different provers can be used to verify different obligations. The currently supported back-ends are the tableau prover Zenon and Isabelle/TLA+, an axiomatisation of TLA+ in Isabelle/Pure. The proof obligations for a complete TLA+ proof can also be used to certify the theorem in Isabelle/TLA+.
