Logic for Computable Functions
Logic for Computable Functions (LCF) is an interactive automated theorem prover developed at the universities of Edinburgh and Stanford by Robin Milner and others in 1972. LCF introduced the general-purpose programming language ML to allow users to write theorem-proving tactics. Theorems in the system are propositions of a special "theorem" abstract datatype. The ML type system ensures that theorems are derived using only the inference rules given by the operations of the abstract type.
