## Requirements
The project is known to compile with:
* Coq 8.7.2
* coq-iris dev.2018-04-10.0 (development version of Iris)
### Step 1: Install opam
_If opam is not already installed:_ See instructions [there][install-opam] to
install it; then:
opam init --comp=4.06.1
(This will create a `~/.opam` directory.)
_If opam is already installed:_ Create a new switch for the project:
opam switch -A 4.06.1 iris-time-proofs
### Step 2: Install Coq
opam repo add coq-released https://coq.inria.fr/opam/released
opam update
opam install -j4 -v coq.8.7.2
If you want to use CoqIDE (a graphical, interactive toplevel for Coq), install
it as well:
opam install coqide.8.7.2
### Step 3: Install a development version of Iris
Do _not_ install the latest development version, as this project does not
support it.
opam repo add iris-dev https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/FP/opam-dev.git
opam update
opam pin add coq-iris -k version dev.2018-04-10.0
(This will also install `coq-stdpp`, another Coq library made available through
the same repo.)
More info on the Coq development of Iris: [there][coq-iris].
## Compiling
To compile the Coq scripts:
cd src/
make
The first time (and each time `_CoqProject` is updated), it also creates the
file `Makefile.coq`.
Other recipes are available, such as `all`, `clean` and `userinstall` (Makefile
taken from [here][coqproject]).
To create an archive of the project:
./make_archive.sh

## Index of modules
Important modules are highlighted.
* `Misc`: some basic things
* `Auth_nat`, `Auth_mnat`: simple lemmas about the authoritative resources on
(ℕ, +) and (ℕ, max)
* `Reduction`: generic lemmas about reduction, safety, closedness, fresh
locations… [should be renamed or split into several files]
* `Tactics`: helper tactics to reduce concrete terms
* __`Translation`: definition of the translation and syntactic lemmas about
it__
* __`Simulation`: generic definition of `tick`; operational lemmas about the
translation with that `tick`__
* __`TimeCredits`: interface, implementation, and proof of soundness for time
credits (plus a proof-mode tactic `wp_tick`)__
* __`TimeCreditsAltProofs`: alternative proofs of the soundness theorem of
time credits, that does not rely on the unsafe behavior of `tick`__
* __`TimeReceipts`: interface, implementation, and proof of soundness for time
receipts (both exclusive and persistent)__
* `Examples`: a very simple example illustrating the use of time credits to
specify a program with lists
* __`Thunks`: implementation of timed thunks using time credits__
### From the paper to the Coq code
#### Generic translation and “tick”
The basic properties of the translation are proven in `Translation.v` (for
example, `translation_subst` and `translation_of_val`).
In `Simulation.v`:
* The operational semantics of “tick” in the nonzero case is given by lemma
`exec_tick_success`.
* The “Forward Simulation” lemma is `simulation_exec_success`.
* The “Forward Simulation of Unsafe Behaviors” lemma corresponds roughly to
`safe_translation__safe_here`.
* The “Safety Transfer” lemma is `adequate_translation__adequate` (in the Coq
development, by contrast with the paper, not only do we prove safety of
programs, but also their _adequacy_ with respect to some formula φ; this is
not a difficult property to transfer anyway).
#### Time credits
In `TimeCredits.v`:
* The “Credit Exhaustion” lemma is `simulation_exec_failure_now`.
* The “Soundness of the Time Credit Translation” lemma is
`simulation_exec_failure`.
* The “Time Credit Initialization” lemma does not have an exact counterpart in
the Coq development, but corresponds roughly to a portion of the proof of
`spec_tctranslation__adequate`. The fact that our implementation matches the
interface is stated by `TC_implementation`.
* The “Soundness of Iris^$ ” lemma is
`abstract_spec_tctranslation__adequate_and_bounded`.
#### Time receipts
In `TimeReceipts.v`:
* The “Time Receipt Initialization” lemma does not have an exact counterpart
in the Coq development, but corresponds roughly to a portion of the proof of
`spec_trtranslation__adequate_translation`. The fact that our implementation
matches the interface is stated by `TR_implementation`.
* The “Credit Exhaustion” lemma is `simulation_exec_failure_now`.
* The “Soundness of Iris^⧗ ” lemma is `abstract_spec_trtranslation__adequate`.
