Satallax Logo
Satallax is an automated theorem prover for higher-order logic. The particular form of higher-order logic supported by Satallax is Church's simple type theory with extensionality and choice operators. The SAT solver MiniSat is responsible for much of the search for a proof. Satallax generates propositional clauses corresponding to rules of a complete tableau calculus and calls MiniSat periodically to test satisfiability of these clauses. Satallax is implemented in Objective Caml. You can run Satallax online at the System On TPTP website.

News

June, 2016: Satallax 3.0 released.
July, 2014: Once again two versions of Satallax competed in the THF (higher-order) Division of CASC-J7 and came in first and second. Satallax-MaLeS 1.3 is an alternative version of Satallax in which the strategy schedule for was computed using machine learning techniques. Daniel Kuehlwein is responsible for Satallax-MaLeS.
June, 2013: Two versions of Satallax competed in the THF (higher-order) Division of CASC-24 and came in first and second. Satallax-MaLeS 1.2 came in first solving 119 of 150 problems. Satallax 2.7 (the latest "official" version available on this site) came in second solving solving 116 of 150 problems. Satallax-MaLeS 1.2 is an alternative version of Satallax in which the strategy schedule for was computed using machine learning techniques. Daniel Kuehlwein is responsible for Satallax-MaLeS.
July, 2012: Satallax 2.4 came in second (or third) behind Isabelle 2012 (Sledgehammer) in the THF (higher-order) Division of CASC-J6. A demonstration system Isabelle-HOT 2012 which calls the higher-order provers Satallax and LEO (in addition to calling first-order systems and SMT solvers) was significantly better than all the other systems. Satallax 2.4 solved about 5% more problems than last year's winner, Satallax 2.1.
August, 2011: Satallax 2.1 won the THF (higher-order) Division of CASC-23 (Detailed Results).
February, 2011: Satallax has been reimplemented in Objective Caml and released as Satallax 2.0.
July, 2010: Satallax 1.4 came in second in the higher-order THF division of CASC-J5. (Click here for results and here for detailed results.) Satallax won the best new system award.

Satallax 3.0June 2016

Michael Färber did some major refactoring of the code, and also included some machine learning code.

There is now the option of using interpretations to help choose instantiations.

Proof reconstruction can now be done even when E is called.


Brief Description

Satallax progressively generates higher-order formulas and corresponding propositional clauses. These formulas and propositional clauses correspond to a complete tableau calculus for higher-order logic with a choice operator. Satallax uses the SAT solver MiniSat as an engine to test the current set of propositional clauses for unsatisfiability. If the clauses are unsatisfiable, then the original set of higher-order formulas is unsatisfiable. If there are no quantifiers at function types, the generation of higher-order formulas and corresponding clauses may terminate. In such a case, if MiniSat reports the final set of clauses as satisfiable, then the original set of higher-order formulas is satisfiable.


The theorem prover Satallax is spelled Satallax, as opposed to any of the following: Satellax, Satillax, Satalax, Sattalax, Satelax, Sattilax, and so on. This footnote is included to help search engines.
