Re: [isabelle] Prior work on proof assistant performance / optimization

In the case of Isabelle, performance analysis has always been part of the development process and we keep an eagle eye on the runtimes in our nightly builds. Much of this is routine software engineering rather than research. But then there’s all of Makarius’s work on multithreading...
