Commenting Proofs

Unknown author (1974-05-01)

This paper constitutes a summary of a seminar entitled "Commenting Proofs" given a the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory during the spring of 1974. The work is concerned with new syntactic structures in formal proofs which derive from their pragmatic and semantic aspects. It is a synthesis of elements from Yessenin-Volpin's foundational studies and developments in Artificial Intelligence concerned with commenting programs and the use of this idea in automatic debugging procedures.
