Using Matthias's setting of autotactic deployment, the number goes further up to 390... Original Message From: Wei, Wei [mailto:wei01.wei@...] Sent: Mittwoch, 29.

I tried to prove automatically all POs for an EventB model of online retailer. The model was used as a case study whose result was published in a paper (with Jeremy Bryans) at FMICS 10. In the case study, 300 POs were automatically discharged. With your plugin, the number went up to 335. Note that this is done by simply adding "Meta prover" to the end of the queue of deployed autotactics. I will try to have Matthias's setting and see whether even more POs can be proved.

Subject: [Rodinbsharpuser] Relevance filter plugin I have finally managed to package the relevance filter(s) I developed for my Master's thesis. The purpose of the relevance filter plugin is to try to automatically select relevant hypotheses for a proof as opposed to the user doing this manually. In my Master thesis I could show that relevance filtering can increase the amount of automatically discharged proofs by 20% (on average). The relevance filter can be invoked either by clicking the RF button in the proof control, or automatically as part of the auto tactic. It also comes with a preference dialog that allows you to configure the filter(s). The plugin implements several filtering methods that will be tried sequentially. The default setting is a selection of filters that have been found to work well. If you want to add the relevance filter to the auto tactic you should add the Meta Prover item. It replaces NewPP after lasoo, NewPP unrestricted, Atelier B P1 and Atelier B PP since this functionality is already included in the Meta prover. You still have to add ML at the appropriate place in the tactic as well as NewPP restricted and Atelier B P0.

Dear Rodin users, Version 1.4 of the modularisation plugin has been released and is available for installation/update. This version is for the platform version 1.3.

If not, what is your interpretation of P(u)? It is also the way I understand it, and the way it is implemented, thanks to the de Bruijn notation used in Java classes. However, people with a classical B background think differently (because the Atelier B implementation requires that one explicitly checks for freeness in such cases). This is why I've added this sidecondition, to be sure to be on the safe side, whatever the reader. An option would be to better explain the notation, so that such side conditions would become superfluous.

Dear fellow Rodin users, I've just changed some inference rules in the Rodin wiki, where the notion of "toplevel" occurrence has been replaced with:  either a WD strictness condition, see [1],  or a freeness condition,  or nothing when the condition was useless. This removes from the documentation this notion of "toplevel" which was not formally defined and difficult to grasp. The rules that have changed are: FUN_IMAGE_GOAL SUBSET_INTER IN_INTER NOTIN_INTER OV_SETENUM_L OV_SETENUM_R OV_L OV_R DIS_BINTER_R DIS_BINTER_L DIS_SETMINUS_R DIS_SETMINUS_L SIM_REL_IMAGE_R SIM_REL_IMAGE_L SIM_FCOMP_R SIM_FCOMP_L CARD_INTERV CARD_EMPTY_INTERV SIMP_CARD_SETMINUS_L SIMP_CARD_SETMINUS_R SIMP_CARD_CPROD_L SIMP_CARD_CPROD_R Could you please review these changes and report any error?

Hi JR! OK, I can understand that as being a rational but then I would suggest changing that sentence in the errata to indicate that in this case we can prove absolute DLF and not just relative DLF which is why we are dropping the guards from the hypotheses. That would make your development easier to follow. You might want to add in the errata that this is always an option when proving DLF for a refinement. (I don't recall you stating that in the book  at least not in chapter 2). Thanks!

Dear John, What I want to express by this statement: > "Notice that we have removed the disjunction of the abstract guards in the antecedent of the implication because we have already proved them in the initial model". is that the RELATIVE deadlock freeness is here and ABSOLUTE deadlock freeness. In the abstraction, the disjunction of the guards has been proved to be true. So that in the refinement the disjunction of the guard should also be proved to be true independently from the disjunction of the abstract guards. So, it is MORE than just removing an unnecessary hypothesis. Hoping to have convinced you :) Yours, JR On 12 Sep 2010, at 13:16, John Pinto wrote: > On page 66 of the EventB book, there is a statement about the DLF under discussion: "Notice that we have removed the disjunction of the abstract guards in the antecedent of the implication because we have already proved them in the initial model". > > That doesn't seem like a reasonable statement because you could say that about any of the antecedents since the others are either invariants or axioms!

Hi Matthias! So you are confirming that the book has an errata in that proof since it seems to be using an invalid inference rule. Maybe JR can take another look at that proof on page 8586 and fill in the blanks of that proof in the errata page he has started. Or at least post to this list what the missing steps in the proof are. I'm not sure how to do that inference rule you mentioned in Rodin, what is it called and how is it accessed? Isn't this the rule you told me doesn't exist in Rodin? I understand that the derivation of a=0 in that proof to be what JR informally calls inference rule ARI (arithmetic), not sure how well it is formalized in the book but when I get to that step in Rodin I rely on the provers to know how to do arithmetic. (Since there is no provision for me in Rodin to just indicate what the ARI step is supposed to do  and I wouldn't want such a provision in case I make a silly mistake in arithmetic) I hope JR can take some time to go over this proof in a bit more detail and give us a cleaned up version using the inference rules in the book (I can accept the ARI steps in the book as long as I can figure them out for myself).

BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE Hash: SHA1 Dear John, I had a quick look at the DLF proof obligation on the bottom of page 85 and come to the conclusion that it is unprovable because of missing hypotheses. Suppose "yellow" belongs to "COLOR" and is different from "green" and "red". Then take: a=0 c=0 ml_tl=yellow il_tl=yellow Then all the hypotheses are true and the goal is not. You can make the PO provable (in Rodin) by adding the missing hypotheses about COLOR. The first step consists of 4 applications of H, not Q  P   H  P \/ Q I doubt that the corrected PO will be provable from the rules in the book, because I do e.g. not see how to derive "a = 0" from "not a > 0" and "a : NAT". The rules about integers summarized in Chapter 9 are incomplete, as Abrial admits by himself. Cheers, Matthias P.s.: The rule > H,P  Q v R >  > H  (P^Q) v R is unsound.
