Comparing approaches to resolution based higher-order theorem proving

Synthese 133 (1-2):203 - 235 (2002)
We investigate several approaches to resolution based automated theoremproving in classical higher-order logic (based on Church's simply typed-calculus) and discuss their requirements with respect to Henkincompleteness and full extensionality. In particular we focus on Andrews'higher-order resolution (Andrews 1971), Huet's constrained resolution (Huet1972), higher-order E-resolution, and extensional higher-order resolution(Benzmüller and Kohlhase 1997). With the help of examples we illustratethe parallels and differences of the extensionality treatment of these approachesand demonstrate that extensional higher-order resolution is the sole approach thatcan completely avoid additional extensionality axioms.
