BPR - Big proof

When recently investigating an intuitionistic fragment of Lukasiewicz logic [1-4], we were able to discover several interesting theorems of this logic by searching for valid equations in the algebra of hoops. Our search for valid equations or counter-models was done using prover9 and mace4 (mccune/mace4/"> In this talk I will describe some of the results obtained, mainly around double negation translations of the classical logic into the intuitionistic counter-part, but also the process by which we managed to translate prover9 equational proofs into human readable (and hopefully understandable) proofs.

Joint work with Rob Arthan.
