This looks interesting. What I would be curious to see is how âauto2â performs with respect to other Isabelle automation (âautoâ, âblastâ, etc., and âsledgehammerâ). The paper âSledgehammer: Judgement Dayâ by BÃhme and Nipkow applied Sledgehammer to 1240 goals from Isabelle theories, using a tool called Mirabelle, included with Isabelle. It would be fairly straightforward to extend Mirabelle with âauto2â and perform some comparisons. Please let me know if this interests you and I can help you get started with Mirabelle.
