Proof Methods for Corecursive Programs
Hutton, Graham and Gibbons, Jeremy (2005) Proof Methods for Corecursive Programs. Fundamenta Informaticae Special Issue on Program Transformation, 66 (4). pp. 353-366.
Recursion is a well-known and powerful programming technique, with a wide variety of applications. The dual technique of corecursion is less well-known, but is increasingly proving to be just as useful. This article is a tutorial on the four main methods for proving properties of corecursive programs: fixpoint induction, the approximation (or take) lemma, coinduction, and fusion.
