Investigating Type-Certifying Compilation with Isabelle

Martin Strecker


This paper presents a type certifying compiler for a subset of Java and proves the type correctness of the bytecode it generates in the proof assistant Isabelle. The proof is performed by defining a type compiler that emits a type certificate and by showing a correspondence between bytecode and the certificate which entails well-typing.
