Hi all,


c :: real and

where ax1 : "c > 0"
and ax2 : "d > 0"

does anyone know how to prove

lemma "c * d > 0"?

It seems using the facts ax1 ax2 isn't sufficient.

Just a stylistic note: raw axiomatizations affect the foundation of the logic, and can easily produce global inconsistency, where eveything breaks down.

In Isabelle/Isar local experimentation can be done within a proof context. Since Isabelle2011 there is also a stand-alone command for that: 'notepad'. Here is the example in that style:

  fix c :: real
  fix d :: real
  assume *: "c > 0"
  assume **: "d > 0"
  have "c * d > 0" sorry

Now you can proceed as suggested before ...

Invoking Sledgehammer (with command "sledgehammer") immediately gives a
by (metis ax1 ax2 real_mult_order)

which can then be rewritten:
 by (simp add: real_mult_order[OF ax1 ax2])

or even:
 by (rule real_mult_order[OF ax1 ax2])
