Topic: Schematic variables in goal after intro


view this post on Zulip Lukas Stevens (Apr 07 2020 at 09:15):

I'm trying to use apply(intro transI relcompI) on a goal of the form trans (r O s) but this gives me schematic variables in the goal. How can I avoid this?

Huh? "intro" shouldn't introduce any schematic variables ever.

But it does :O

can you show a minimal example

view this post on Zulip Lukas Stevens (Apr 07 2020 at 09:43):

lemma "trans (r O s)"
  apply(intro transI relcompI)

For me, it produces:

proof (prove)
goal (2 subgoals):
 1. ⋀x y z. ⟦(x, y) ∈ r O s; (y, z) ∈ r O s⟧ ⟹ (x, ?b1 x y z) ∈ r
 2. ⋀x y z. ⟦(x, y) ∈ r O s; (y, z) ∈ r O s⟧ ⟹ (?b1 x y z, z) ∈ s

I can try to investigate later. I thought "intro" wasn't supposed to produce schematic variables.

I would just use "rule" and "assumption" by hand, or "rule" and "erule"

apply (rule transI) apply (erule (1) relcompI)

err no

you'll first have to eliminate the "o" in the assumptions

apply (elim relcompE), probably. And then "erule (2) relcompI"
