    In this contribution we present some work we have been doing in representing and proving theorems from the area of economics, and mainly we present work we will do in a project in which we will apply mechanised theorem proving tools to a class of economic problems for which very few general tools currently exist. For mechanised theorem proving, the research introduces the field to a new application domain with a large user base; more specifically, the researchers are collaborating with developers working on state-of-the-art theorem provers. For economics, the research will provide tools for handling a hard class of problems; more generally, as the first application of mechanised theorem proving to centrally involve economic theorists, it aims to properly introduce mechanised theorem proving techniques to the discipline.\u

    This articles is a structured bibliography on theorem provers, approaches to theorem proving, and theorem proving applications inspired from Satchmo, the model generation theorem prover developed in the mid 80es of the 20th century at ECRC, the European Computer- Industry Research Centre. Note that the bibliography given in this article is not exhaustive

    We give an overview of issues surrounding computer-verified theorem proving in the standard pure-mathematical context. This is based on my talk at the PQR conference (Brussels, June 2003)

    Mechanical theorem provers for higher order logics have been successfully applied in many areas including hardware verification and synthesis; verification of security and communications protocols; software verification, transformation and refinement; compiler construction; and concurrency. The higher order logics used to reason about these problems and the underlying theorem prover technology that support them are also active areas of research. The International Conference on Theorem Proving in Higher Order Logics (TPHOLs) brings together people working in these and related areas for the discussion and dissemination of new ideas in the field. TPHOLs'98 continues the conference tradition of having both a completed work and work-in-progress stream. The Papers from the first stream were formally refereed, and published as volume 1479 of LNCS. This, supplementary, proceedings records work accepted under the work-in-progress category, and is intended to document emerging trends in higher-order logic research. Papers in the work-in-progress stream are vetted for relevance and contribution before acceptance. The work-in-progress stream is regarded as an important feature of the conference as it provides a venue for the presentation of ongoing research projects, where researchers invite discussion of preliminary results. Although the TPHOLs conferences have their genesis in meetings of the users of the HOL theorem proving system, each successive year has seen a higher rate of contribution from the other groups with similar goals, particularly the user communities of Coq, Isabelle, Lambda, Lego, NuPrl, and PVS. Since 1993 the proceedings have been published by Springer as volumes in Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Bibliographic details of these publications can be found at the back of this book; more history of TPHOLs can be found with further information about the 1998 event at http://cs.anu.edu.au/TPHOLs98/.Conference Papers: Integrating TPS with Omega By Christoph Benzmuller and Volker Sorge Some Theorem Proving Aids By Paul E.
