Research Interests

I am working in the field of automated reasoning. Among my interests are efficient algorithms and intelligent search control for automatic theorem proving. My long-term goal is the integration of high-performance inference mechanism and machine learning techniques to provide a system that can robustly reason in a wide variety of domains.

I try to keep all of my papers and other publications online in my hand-curated bibliography. Google Scholar does a better job of keeping my profile page up to date and also computes various indices and citation counts.

The Theorem Prover E

Many of the results of my research are embodied in E, a theorem prover for full first-order logic with equality. E has performed well in most CASC competitions and has won a number of prizes.

  1. The main E website is at

  2. The development website has detailed information for some papers and work in progress

  3. A short description is on Wikipedia - take it with the usual caution
