Completed Projects
Below you find some implementations of lambda calculi and logics that
are no longer actively developed.
Tutch is apparently used for teaching logics
at some universities; email me if you find bugs.
Fomega
 Type Checker for Currystyle System F_{ω}

Typechecking is easy for fully typeannotated (Churchstyle) terms of
Girard's System F^{ω} but undecidable for nonannotated
(Currystyle) terms. Hence, the type checker we implemented is
necessary incomplete. Nevertheless, it succeeds on most typical terms
occurring in F^{ω} programs and has proven to be a practical
tool for my own purposes.

 Type Checker for Churchstyle System F_{ω}

This type checker does the (rather) simple job of checking fully annotated
lambdaterms of System F_{ω}. It is envisioned as a
doublechecking backend to the Fomega checker (see above).
tutch
 Tutorial Proof Checker

tutch is a proof CHecker for TUTorial purposes. It is based on
intutionistic logic and supports the following proof forms:
 natural deduction (ND) proofs
 ND proofs annotated with proof terms
 proof terms
...and the following theories:
 intuitionistic and classical propositional logic
 intuitionistic pure firstorder logic
 Heyting Arithmetic (booleans, natural numbers, lists)

 Termination Checker for Functional Programs

foetus is a typetheoretic functional programming language, a
simplification of MuTTI (Munich Type Theory Implementation), designed
to investigate termination checking of recursive functions. An
implementation of the termination checker has been carried out in
1997/1998 and is accessible via the WWW. In
my diploma thesis (1999), I proved wellfoundedness of the structural
term ordering used in foetus. A predicative version (in
the sense of MartinLöf's type theory) of the proof appeared in
the Journal of Functional Programming (2002) and a soundness
proof of the static analysis algorithm of foetus has been
published in the proceedings of TYPES'99.
