Abstract

Codatatypes are absent from many programming languages and proof assistants. We make a case for their importance by revisiting a classic result: the completeness theorem for first-order logic established through a Gentzen system. The core of the proof establishes an abstract property of possibly infinite derivation trees, independently of the concrete syntax or inference rules. This separation of concerns simplifies the presentation. The abstract proof can be instantiated for a wide range of Gentzen and tableau systems as well as various flavors of first order logic. The corresponding Isabelle/HOL formalization demonstrates the recently introduced support for codatatypes and the Haskell code generator.
