# Formalization of the Embedding Path Order for Lambda-Free Higher-Order Terms

 Title: Formalization of the Embedding Path Order for Lambda-Free Higher-Order Terms Author: Alexander Bentkamp (bentkamp /at/ gmail /dot/ com) Submission date: 2018-10-19 Abstract: This Isabelle/HOL formalization defines the Embedding Path Order (EPO) for higher-order terms without lambda-abstraction and proves many useful properties about it. In contrast to the lambda-free recursive path orders, it does not fully coincide with RPO on first-order terms, but it is compatible with arbitrary higher-order contexts.
