This paper presents an Isabelle/HOL formalization of recent research in automated reasoning: efficient encodings of sorts in unsorted first-order logic, as implemented in Isabelle’s Sledgehammer proof tool. The formalization provides the general-purpose machinery to reason about formulas and models, emulating the theory of institutions. Quantifiers are represented using a nominal-like approach designed for interpreting syntax in semantic domains.
