As a generic theorem prover, Isabelle supports a variety of logics
Distinctive features include Isabelle''s representation of logics within a meta-logic and the use of higher-order unification to combine inference rules. Isabelle can be applied to reasoning in pure mathematics or verification of computer systems. This volume constitutes the Isabelle documentation. It begins by outlining theoretical aspects and then demonstrates the use in practice. Virtually all Isabelle functions are described, with advice on correct usage and numerous examples. Isabelle''s built-in logics are also described in detail. There is a comprehensive bebliography and index. The book addresses prospective users of Isabelle as well as researchers in logic and automated reasoning.
