Chad E. Brown
: the primary developer.
He wrote most of the lisp code for Satallax 1.* and the search related ocaml code for Satallax 2.0.
wrote the Machine Learning code and did a major refactoring of the other code. His code is part of Satallax 3.0 (and above).
wrote code to construct Isabelle proofs
from Satallax refutations.
: Frank Theiß wrote ocaml code to parse TPTP syntax. This code
was written to be used in LEO-II, but it has now also been used in Satallax.
Satallax was initially developed in Gert Smolka's Lehrstuhl
Universität des Saarlandes
The search procedure for Satallax is largely based on a complete tableau calculus
for simple type theory without choice developed by
Brown and Smolka
The results on restricted instantiations which permit Satallax to terminate indicating
satisfiability in some essentially first-order problems
also come from the work of Brown and Smolka.
Julian Backes was a Master student of Chad Brown in the Smolka Lehrstuhl.
Backes and Brown extended the tableau calculus of Brown and Smolka to be complete
for simple type theory with a
is the primary developer of LEO-II
and has done a lot of work in higher-order theorem proving for a long time.
Satallax and LEO-II use some of the same parsing code.

an alternative version of Satallax with a strategy schedule computed using machine learning techniques.
