Formalizing Almost Development Closed Critical Pairs (Short Paper)

LIPIcs-ITP-2023-38.pdf (0.7 MB)


We report on the first formalization of the almost-development closedness criterion for confluence of left-linear term rewrite systems and illustrate a problem we encountered while trying to formalize the original paper proof by van Oostrom.
