Library Coq.FSets.FSetInterface


Finite set library

Set interfaces, inspired by the one of Ocaml. When compared with Ocaml, the main differences are:
  • the lack of iter function, useless since Coq is purely functional
  • the use of option types instead of Not_found exceptions
  • the use of nat instead of int for the cardinal function
Several variants of the set interfaces are available:
  • WSfun : functorial signature for weak sets, non-dependent style
  • WS : self-contained version of WSfun
  • Sfun : functorial signature for ordered sets, non-dependent style
  • S : self-contained version of Sfun
  • Sdep : analog of S written using dependent style
If unsure, S is probably what you're looking for: other signatures are subsets of it, apart from Sdep which is isomorphic to S (see FSetBridge).

Non-dependent signatures

The following signatures presents sets as purely informative programs together with axioms

Functorial signature for weak sets

Weak sets are sets without ordering on base elements, only a decidable equality.

Module Type WSfun (E : DecidableType).

  Definition elt := E.t.

  Parameter t : Type.
the abstract type of sets
Logical predicates
  Parameter In : elt -> t -> Prop.
  Definition Equal s s' := forall a : elt, In a s <-> In a s'.
  Definition Subset s s' := forall a : elt, In a s -> In a s'.
  Definition Empty s := forall a : elt, ~ In a s.
  Definition For_all (P : elt -> Prop) s := forall x, In x s -> P x.
  Definition Exists (P : elt -> Prop) s := exists x, In x s /\ P x.

  Notation "s [=] t" := (Equal s t) (at level 70, no associativity).
  Notation "s [<=] t" := (Subset s t) (at level 70, no associativity).

  Parameter empty : t.
The empty set.

  Parameter is_empty : t -> bool.
Test whether a set is empty or not.

  Parameter mem : elt -> t -> bool.
mem x s tests whether x belongs to the set s.

  Parameter add : elt -> t -> t.
add x s returns a set containing all elements of s, plus x. If x was already in s, s is returned unchanged.

  Parameter singleton : elt -> t.
singleton x returns the one-element set containing only x.

  Parameter remove : elt -> t -> t.
remove x s returns a set containing all elements of s, except x. If x was not in s, s is returned unchanged.

  Parameter union : t -> t -> t.
Set union.

  Parameter inter : t -> t -> t.
Set intersection.

  Parameter diff : t -> t -> t.
Set difference.

  Definition eq : t -> t -> Prop := Equal.

  Parameter eq_dec : forall s s', { eq s s' } + { ~ eq s s' }.

  Parameter equal : t -> t -> bool.
equal s1 s2 tests whether the sets s1 and s2 are equal, that is, contain equal elements.

  Parameter subset : t -> t -> bool.
subset s1 s2 tests whether the set s1 is a subset of the set s2.

  Parameter fold : forall A : Type, (elt -> A -> A) -> t -> A -> A.
fold f s a computes (f xN ... (f x2 (f x1 a))...), where x1 ... xN are the elements of s. The order in which elements of s are presented to f is unspecified.

  Parameter for_all : (elt -> bool) -> t -> bool.
for_all p s checks if all elements of the set satisfy the predicate p.

  Parameter exists_ : (elt -> bool) -> t -> bool.
exists p s checks if at least one element of the set satisfies the predicate p.

  Parameter filter : (elt -> bool) -> t -> t.
filter p s returns the set of all elements in s that satisfy predicate p.

  Parameter partition : (elt -> bool) -> t -> t * t.
partition p s returns a pair of sets (s1, s2), where s1 is the set of all the elements of s that satisfy the predicate p, and s2 is the set of all the elements of s that do not satisfy p.

  Parameter cardinal : t -> nat.
Return the number of elements of a set.

  Parameter elements : t -> list elt.
Return the list of all elements of the given set, in any order.

  Parameter choose : t -> option elt.
Return one element of the given set, or None if the set is empty. Which element is chosen is unspecified. Equal sets could return different elements.

Static signature for weak sets

Similar to the functorial signature SW, except that the module E of base elements is incorporated in the signature.

End WS.

Functorial signature for sets on ordered elements

Based on WSfun, plus ordering on sets and min_elt and max_elt and some stronger specifications for other functions.

Module Type Sfun (E : OrderedType).
  Include WSfun E.

  Parameter lt : t -> t -> Prop.
  Parameter compare : forall s s' : t, Compare lt eq s s'.
Total ordering between sets. Can be used as the ordering function for doing sets of sets.

Return the smallest element of the given set (with respect to the E.compare ordering), or None if the set is empty.

Remark: since fold is specified via elements, this stronger specification of elements has an indirect impact on fold, which can now be proved to receive elements in increasing order.
