Abstract in LaTeX format:
We show how logical frameworks can provide a basis for logic program
synthesis. With them, we may use first-order logic as a foundation
to formalize and derive rules that constitute program development calculi.
Derived rules may be in turn applied to synthesize
logic programs using higher-order resolution during proof that
programs meet their specifications. We illustrate this using
Paulson's Isabelle system to derive and use a simple synthesis calculus
based on equivalence preserving transformations.
