Summer School on Type Theory


		      BAASTAD, SWEDEN, JUNE 7 - 18, 1993

During the last few years major achievements have been made in using
computers for interactive proof developments. Several proof assistants
(such as Coq, Lego, and Alf) have been developed based on the idea of
a logical framework in which it is possible to define a variety of
logics. Many quite substantial proofs from mathematics, logic, and
computing have also been implemented in them.

This two week course is for postgraduate students and researchers who
want to learn about interactive proof development. There will be
introductory and advanced lectures on lambda calculus, type theory,
logical frameworks, program extraction, and other topics which give
relevant background.  No prior knowledge of these topics is expected.

The systems will be demonstrated, and students will get extensive
opportunities to use them in a workstation environment for developing
their own proofs.
