Re: [isabelle] HOL/Auth subgoal (Nonce secrecy)

Hi Jean,

(I'm taking the liberty of answering to the mailing list.)

That's a lot (Nipkow & Boehme found it was < 10% on their test data), but it's known to vary from theory to theory. SPASS is usually run with the SOS (set of support) strategy, which might make it less likely that it finds (untyped) contradictions between the included facts.

And have you tried playing with the "no_atp" (previously "noatp") attribute? Unsound proofs tend to always involve the same facts, and using this tag you can instruct Sledgehammer to leave them out. Alternatively, with 2009-2, you can try the syntax

    sledgehammer (del: evil_facts_go_here)

We haven't given up all hopes of coming up with a sound (or at least sounder) yet efficient encoding for Sledgehammer, but in the meantime these are the workarounds.
