Computing with Classical Real Numbers
AbstractThere are two incompatible Coq libraries that have a theory of the real numbers; the Coq standard library gives an axiomatic treatment of classical real numbers, while the CoRN library from Nijmegen defines constructively valid real numbers. Unfortunately, this means results about one structure cannot easily be used in the other structure. We present a way interfacing these two libraries by showing that their real number structures are isomorphic assuming the classical axioms already present in the standard library reals. This allows us to use O'Connor's decision procedure for solving ground inequalities present in CoRN to solve inequalities about the reals from the Coq standard library, and it allows theorems from the Coq standard library to apply to problem about the CoRN reals.
