Build Status Hackage Hackage Dependencies

A type checker plugin for GHC that can solve equalities of types of kind Nat, where these types are either:

  • Type-level naturals
  • Type variables
  • Applications of the arithmetic expressions (+,-,*,^).

It solves these equalities by normalising them to sort-of SOP (Sum-of-Products) form, and then perform a simple syntactic equality.

For example, this solver can prove the equality between:

(x + 2)^(y + 2)

and

4*x*(2 + x)^y + 4*(2 + x)^y + (2 + x)^y*x^2

Because the latter is actually the SOP normal form of the former.

To use the plugin, add

{-# OPTIONS_GHC -fplugin GHC.TypeLits.Normalise #-}

To the header of your file.

Changelog for the ghc-typelits-natnormalise package

0.6.2 July 10th 2018

  • Add support for GHC 8.6.1-alpha1
  • Solve larger inequalities from smaller inequalities, e.g.
    • a <= n implies a <= n + 1

0.6.1 May 9th 2018

  • Stop solving x + y ~ a + b by asking GHC to solve x ~ a and y ~ b as this leads to a situation where we find a solution that is not the most general.
  • Stop using the smallest solution to an inequality to solve an equality, as this leads to finding solutions that are not the most general.
  • Solve smaller inequalities from larger inequalities, e.g.
    • 1 <= 2*x implies 1 <= x
    • x + 2 <= y implies x <= y and 2 <= y

0.6 April 23rd 2018

  • Solving constraints with a-b will emit b <= a constraints. e.g. solving n-1+1 ~ n will emit a 1 <= n constraint.
    • If you need subtraction to be treated as addition with a negated operarand run with -fplugin-opt GHC.TypeLits.Normalise:allow-negated-numbers, and the b <= a constraint won’t be emitted. Note that doing so can lead to unsound behaviour.
  • Try to solve equalities using smallest solution of inequalities:
    • Solve x + 1 ~ y using 1 <= y => x + 1 ~ 1 => x ~ 0
  • Solve inequalities using simple transitivity rules:
    • 2 <= x implies 1 <= x
    • x <= 9 implies x <= 10
  • Solve inequalities using simple monotonicity of addition rules:
    • 2 <= x implies 2 + 2*x <= 3*x
  • Solve inequalities using simple monotonicity of multiplication rules:
    • 1 <= x implies 1 <= 3*x
  • Solve inequalities using simple monotonicity of exponentiation rules:
    • 1 <= x implies 2 <= 2^x
  • Solve inequalities using powers of 2 and monotonicity of exponentiation:
    • 2 <= x implies 2^(2 + 2*x) <= 2^(3*x)
