Abstract: In this thesis is presented interactive formalization of various models of geometry and algebraic methods for automated proving geometry theorems. We present our current work on formalizing analytic (Cartesian) plane geometries within the proof assistant Isabelle/HOL. We give several equivalent definitions of the Cartesian plane and show that it models synthetic plane geometries (using both Tarski’s and Hilbert’s axiom systems). We also discuss several techniques used to simplify and automate the proofs. As one of our aims is to advocate the use of proof assistants in mathematical education, our exposure tries to remain simple and close to standard textbook definitions, but completely formal and mechanically verifiable. This formalization presents the develop of the necessary infrastructure for implementing decision procedures based on analytic geometry within proof assistants. Furthermore, we investigate complex numbers. Deep connections between complex numbers and geometry had been well known and carefully studied centuries ago. Fundamental objects that are investigated are the complex plane (usually extended by a single infinite point), its objects (points, lines and circles), and groups of transformations that act on them (e.g., inversions and Möbius transformations). In this thesis we treat the geometry of complex numbers formally and present a fully mechanically verified development within the theorem prover Isabelle/HOL. We discuss different approaches to formalization and discuss major advantages of the more algebraically oriented approach. Apart from applications in formalizing mathematics and in education, this work serves as a ground for formally investigating various nonEuclidean geometries and their intimate connections. We also present a formalization of part of Tarski axiom system withing Poincare disk model in Isabelle/HOL. Further on, we analyze connections between geometry and polynomials and the use of these connections. In Euclidean geometry, objects and relations between them can be expressed as polynomials. Further, any geometry construction can be expressed by set of polynomials and geometry statements can be proved by using algebraic methods (e.g. the Gröbner bases method or Wu’s method) over that set of polynomials. We describe an implementation of an algorithm in Isabelle/HOL that accepts a term representation of a geometry construction and returns its corresponding set of polynomials. Our further work will be to use the method of Gröbner bases within the Isabelle system on the generated polynomials, in order to prove correctness of the given construction. Furthermore, we investigate how spatial geometry constructions can be presented using polynomials. We investigate two different approaches in deriving those polynomials and then compare efficiency of algebraic provers depending on the approach used. We present a fully automated system for transforming geometry constructions into set of polynomials. Our further work would be to relate these geometry provers with dynamic geometry software and thus make easier for students to use it. URI: http://hdl.handle.net/123456789/4499 Files in this item: 1
