Certifying Differential Equation Solutions from Computer Algebra Systems in Isabelle/HOL

Thomas Hickman, Christian Pardillo Laursen, Simon Foster

The Isabelle/HOL proof assistant has a powerful library for continuous analysis, which provides the foundation for verification of hybrid systems. However, Isabelle lacks automated proof support for continuous artifacts, which means that verification is often manual. In contrast, Computer Algebra Systems (CAS), such as Mathematica and SageMath, contain a wealth of efficient algorithms for matrices, differential equations, and other related artifacts. Nevertheless, these algorithms are not verified, and thus their outputs cannot, of themselves, be trusted for use in a safety critical system. In this paper we integrate two CAS systems into Isabelle, with the aim of certifying symbolic solutions to ordinary differential equations. This supports a verification technique that is both automated and trustworthy.
