Equations: A Dependent Pattern-Matching Compiler


We present a compiler for definitions made by pattern matching on inductive families in the Coq system. It allows to write structured, recursive dependently-typed functions as a set of equations, automatically find their realization in the core type theory and generate proofs to ease reasoning on them. It provides a complete package to define and reason on functions in the proof assistant, substantially reducing the boilerplate code and proofs one usually has to write, also hiding the in- tricacies related to the use of dependent types and complex recursion schemes.
