Abstract in LaTeX format:
Different methods for term retrieval in deduction systems
have been introduced in literature. This report reviews
the three indexing techniques discrimination indexing,
path indexing, and abstraction tree indexing. A formal
approach to path indexing is presented and algorithms as
well as data structures of an existing implementation are
discussed. Eventually, experiments will show that our im-
plementation outperforms the implementation of path
indexing in the OTTER theorem prover.
