Structuring Theories with Implicit Morphisms


We introduce implicit morphisms as a concept in formal systems based on theories and theory morphisms. The idea is that there may be at most one implicit morphism from a theory S to a theory T, and if S-expressions are used in T their semantics is obtained by automatically inserting the implicit morphism. The practical appeal of implicit morphisms is that they hit the sweet-spot of being extremely simple to understand and implement while significantly helping with structuring large collections of theories.Concrete applications include elegantly identifying isomorphic theories and extending theories with definitions and theorems as well as efficiently building and maintaining large, fine-granular, and heterogeneous hierarchies of theories. Our results are formulated and implemented in the language and system, and we expect they can be transferred to other morphism-based formalisms relatively easily.
