Alright. After much waiting and detours, I’ve finally decided to start doing some original work in Isabelle/HOL itself. *drum rolls*

After the last meeting with Mr. MM, I’ve decided to start working on the specification I’ve already done in Z of his framework. The specification is pretty involved and would require much more work to be properly embedded in HOL. I have a few ideas but that will have to wait.

Mr. MM: Here’s my plan. First of all, what needs to be done is that we need to have the Document Model formalized, specified and verified. This has already been done during HOL-OCL development by the ETH Zurich guys but I would like to do it in a more accessible way (i.e. without the use of stuff like “smashed sets and objects”). I want to make something that can be used by the average formal specification engineer. If we can get only this done, it would be an accomplishment.

So, I would appreciate it if you can take some time out and find out for me if the Class Diagrams of UML have been formalized in Isabelle/HOL. I’ve done thorough searching and have only found stuff done in either HOL-Z or HOL-OCL (all by the ETH guys). I want to make sure that I’m not re-inventing the wheel. I’ll continue my search but it would be a big help if you can confirm that it has not been done before or find me the papers which have done it.

Ok. No response. Guess I’ll have to fly solo on this one. No problem with that.
