Proving Equality of Streams Automatically

Hans Zantema & Joerg Endrullis
Streams are infinite sequences over a given data type. A stream specification is a set of equations intended to define a stream. In this paper we focus on equality of streams, more precisely, for a given set of equations two stream terms are said to be equal if they are equal in every model satisfying the given equations. We investigate techniques for proving equality of streams suitable for automation. Apart from techniques that were already...
