The Russell proof language

August 19, 2012

I have thought for a long time that it would be nice to have a high-level proof language with a prover that would compile that to an easy to verify and still readable low level language. A good candidate for the low-level part would be Metamath. I have recently found out about Russel – a high-level proof language created by Dmitri Yurievich Vlasov that compiles to (a simplified version of) Metamath. The Russell project on Sourceforge was last updated in February 2011, so it seems to be unused and abandoned. There is a paper (in Russian) that describes Russell. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the journal where it was published.
