(** ** [auto] and [eauto] *)
(** The [auto] tactic solves goals that are solvable by any
combination of
- [intros]
- [apply] (used on some local hypothesis)
- [reflexivity]
The [eauto] tactic works just like [auto], except that it
uses [eapply] instead of [apply]. *)
(** Using [auto] is always "safe" in the sense that it will
never fail and will never change the proof state: either
it completely solves the current goal, or it does
nothing.
Here is a contrived example: *)
Lemma auto_example_1 : forall P Q R S T U : Prop,
(P -> Q) ->
(P -> R) ->
(T -> R) ->
(S -> T -> U) ->
((P->Q) -> (P->S)) ->
T ->
P ->
U.
Proof.
auto. Qed.
(** By default, [auto] and [eauto] consider just the hypotheses
in the current context. But we can also give it a list of
lemmas and constructors to consider in addition to these, by
writing [auto using ...]. *)
Lemma auto_example_2 : forall P Q R : Prop,
Q ->
(Q -> R) ->
P \/ (Q /\ R).
Proof.
auto using conj, or_introl, or_intror. Qed.
(** There are some constructors and lemmas that are applied very
often in proofs. We can tell [auto] to *always* consider
these, instead of mentioning them explicitly each time. This
is accomplished by writing
[Hint Resolve l.]
where [l] is a top-level lemma theorem, or a constructor of
an inductively defined proposition (i.e., anything whose type
is an implication). As a shorthand, we can write
[Hint Constructors c.]
to tell Coq to add *all* of the constructors from the
inductive definition of [c] to the database used by [auto].
It is also sometimes necessary to add
[Hint Unfold d.]
where [d] is a defined symbol, so that [auto] knows to expand
uses of [d] and enable further possibilities for applying
lemmas that it knows about.
*)

Lemma auto_example_3 : forall P Q R : Prop,
Q ->
(Q -> R) ->
P \/ (Q /\ R).
Proof.
auto. Qed.
(** Warning: It is easy to overuse [auto] and [eauto] and wind up
with proofs that are impossible to understand later! *)
(* ###################################################################### *)
(** ** [Proof with (tactic)] *)
(** If you start a proof with "Proof using (tactic)" then writing
[...] instead of [.] after a tactic in the body of the
proof will try to solve all generated subgoals with
[tactic] (and fail if this doesn't work).
One common use of this facility is "[Proof with auto]" (or
[eauto]). We'll see many examples of this later in the
file. *)
(* ###################################################################### *)
(** ** [solve by inversion] *)
(** Here's another nice automation feature: it often arises that
the context contains a contradictory assumption and we want
to use [inversion] on it to solve the goal. We'd like to be
able to say to Coq, "find a contradictory assumption and
invert it" without giving its name explicitly.
Unfortunately (and a bit surprisingly), Coq does not provide
a built-in tactic that does this. However, it is not too
hard to define one ourselves. (Thanks to Aaron Bohannon for
this nice hack.) *)
Tactic Notation "solve_by_inversion_step" tactic(t) :=
match goal with
| H : _ |- _ => solve [ inversion H; subst; t ]
end

Tactic Notation "solve" "by" "inversion" "1" :=

Tactic Notation "solve" "by" "inversion" "3" :=
solve_by_inversion_step (solve by inversion 2).
Tactic Notation "solve" "by" "inversion" :=
solve by inversion 1.
(** Again, the details of how the [Tactic Notation] definition
works are not important. All we need to know is that doing
[solve by inversion] will find a hypothesis that can be
inverted to solve the goal, if there is one. The tactics
[solve by inversion 2] and [solve by inversion 3] are slightly
fancier versions which will perform two or three inversions in
a row, if necessary, to solve the goal. *)
(* ###################################################################### *)
(** ** [try solve] *)
(** Doing the same thing to all subgoals is very useful. But
notice, in the proof as it now stands, that many of the
subcases are solved by either [reflexivity] or [solve by
inversion]. It would be really nice to deal with all of
these once and for all. I.e., what we want is a way to
do the same thing to MOST of the subgoals! The [try
solve ...] tactical gives us this ability.
If [t] is a tactic, then [try solve [t]] is a tactic that
- if [t] solves the goal, behaves just like [t], or
- if [t] cannot completely solve the goal, does
nothing.
More generally, [try solve [t1 | t2 | ...]] will try to
solve the goal by using [t1], [t2], etc. If none of them
succeeds in completely solving the goal, then [try solve
[t1 | t2 | ...]] does nothing.
The fact that it does nothing when it doesn't completely
succeed in solving the goal means that there is no harm
in using [try solve ...] in situations where it makes no
sense. In particular, if we put it after a [;], it will
solve as many subgoals as it can and leave the rest for
us to solve by other methods.
Doing [try solve [reflexivity | solve by inversion]] on
each of the subgoals generated by the
[induction... inversion...] at the top of the determinism
proof removes a lot of silly subgoals and leaves us free
to concentrate on the more interesting ones. *)

the progress theorem as we stated it before fails! That is,

performed either over the term itself or over the

(** * The Simply Typed Lambda-Calculus *)
(** The simply typed lambda-calculus (often written STLC for
short) can be described as the simplest possible functional
programming language -- it contains anonymous functions,
application, variables, and nothing else.
Since it is essentially a small fragment of Coq's built-in
functional language, we could informally use the same
notation for programs. For example,
fun x:A => x
is the identity function at the type [A], and
fun x:A => fun y:B => x
is a function that takes an argument of type [A], throws it
away, and returns the constant-[x] function (of type [B->A]).
However, this "[fun ... => ...]" notation is a little verbose
and heavy, especially for writing on the blackboard. So when
we discuss terms informally, we'll use another common way of
writing function abstractions in this language: [\x:A.x],
where [\] stands for the greek letter "lambda". (This
explains the name of the calculus.)
To keep things simple, we'll start with the "pure" simply
typed lambda-calculus, where base types like [A], [B],
etc. are completely uninterpreted -- i.e., there are no
constants belonging to base types and no primitive operations
over base types. At the end of this file, we'll see how to
extend the pure system to something closer to a real
programming language by adding base types like numbers.
The main new technical issues that we'll have to face in this
section are dealing with _variable binding_ and _substitution_.
- We've already seen how to formalize a language with
variables (IMP). There, however, the variables were all
global. In STLC, we need to handle bound variables --
function parameters.
- Moreover, instead of just looking up global variables in
the store, we'll need to reduce function applications by
substituting arguments for parameters in function
bodies.
*)
(** Acknowledgement: This treatment of the simply typed
lambda-calculus (using named variables and "capture-incurring
substitution") is based on a development by Andrew
Tolmach. *)

types of Coq. We begin with a collection of base types,
which we write [A], [B], etc., in informal
examples (formally, they are designated by the constructor
[ty_base] together with a number). Then, for every pair of
types [T1] and [T2], we construct the arrow type
[T1->T2] (formally, [ty_arrow T1 T2]). *)

the type ([T]) of its parameter. This is in contrast to
Coq (and other full-blown functional languages like ML,
Haskell, etc.), where we can write either

or
[[

and trust Coq to fill in an appropriate annotation in the latter case.

(** *** Values *)
(** When we come to defining the values of the STLC, we have to
think a little.
First, an application is clearly NOT a value.
For abstractions, on the other hand, we have a choice:
- We can say that [\x:A.t] is a value only of [t] is a
value -- i.e., only if the function's body has been
reduced (as much as it can be without knowing what
argument it is going to be applied to).
- Or we can say that [\x:A.t] is always a value, no matter
whether [t] is one or not -- in other words, we can say
that reduction stops at abstractions.
Coq makes the first choice -- for example,
<<
Eval simpl in (fun x:bool => plus 3 4)
>> yields [fun x:bool => 7]. But most real functional
programming languages make the second choice -- reduction of
a function's body only begins when the function is actually
applied to an argument. We also make the latter choice here.
Having decided this, we don't need to worry about whether
variables are values, since we'll always be reducing programs
"from the outside in," and that means the [step] relation
will always be working with closed terms (ones with no free
variables).

(** *** Substitution *)
(** Now we come to the most interesting part of the definition:
the operation of substituting one term for the free
occurrences of some variable in another term. This operation
will be used in a moment to define the operational semantics
of function application, where we will need to substitute the
argument term for the function parameter in the function's
body.
Informally, substitution is often written [[s/x]t],
pronounced "substitute [s] for [x] in [t]".
For example:
- [[(\y:A.y)/x]x = \y:A.y]
- [[(\y:A.y)/x]z = z]
- [[(\y:A.y)/x](\z:B. x) = \z:B. \y:A.y]
- [[(\y:A.y)/x](\z:(A->A)->(A->A). z x) = \z:(A->A)->(A->A). z ((\y:A.y))]
- [[(\y:A.y)/x](\x:B.x) = \x:B.x]
- [[(\y:A.y)/x](x (\x:B.x)) = (\y:A.y) (\x:B.x)]
Note that, in the last two examples, we do NOT substitute for
the [x] in the body of an abstraction whose bound variable is
named [x].
Here is the formal definition:
*)
Fixpoint subst (x:id) (s:tm) (t:tm) {struct t} : tm :=
match t with
| tm_var x' => if beq_id x x' then s else t
| tm_abs x' T t1 => tm_abs x' T (if beq_id x x' then t1 else (subst x s t1))
| tm_app t1 t2 => tm_app (subst x s t1) (subst x s t2)
end.
(** Technical note: Substitution is actually a little tricky to
define if we consider the case where [s], the term being
substituted in, may itself contain free variables. Since we
are only interested in defining the [step] relation on closed
terms here, we can avoid this extra complexity. *)
(* ################################### *)
(** *** Reduction *)
(** The small-step reduction relation for STLC follows the same
pattern as the ones we have seen before. Intuitively, to
reduce a function application, we first reduce its left-hand
side until it becomes a literal function; then we reduce its
right-hand side (the argument) until it is also a value; and
finally we substitute the argument for the bound variable in
the body of the function. This last rule, written informally
as
[[
(\x:T.t12) v2 ~~> [v2/x]t12
]]
is traditionally called "beta-reduction".

(** ** Typing *)
(* ################################### *)
(** *** Contexts *)
(** Question: What is the type of the term "[x tm_true]"?
Answer: It depends on the type of [x]!
I.e., in order to assign a type to a term, we need to know
what assumptions we should make about the types of its free
variables.
This leads us to a three-place "typing judgment", informally
written [Gamma |- t : T], where [Gamma] is a "typing
context" -- a mapping from variables to their types.
