# Library Coq.Init.Peano

The type nat of Peano natural numbers (built from O and S) is defined in Datatypes.v

This module defines the following operations on natural numbers :
• predecessor pred
• multiplication mult
• less or equal order le
• less lt
• greater or equal ge
• greater gt
It states various lemmas and theorems about natural numbers, including Peano's axioms of arithmetic (in Coq, these are provable). Case analysis on nat and induction on nat * nat are provided too
