  • Making a Productive Use of Failure to Generate Witnesses for Coinduction from Divergent Proof Attempts 

    Dennis, Louise; Bundy, Alan; Green, Ian (1999)
    Coinduction is a proof rule. It is the dual of induction. It allows reasoning about non--well--founded structures such as lazy lists or streams and is of particular use for reasoning about equivalences. A central difficulty ...
