Sn , as well as their embeddings as subsorts of each other. Thus the carriers for the sorts si are required to be isomorphic. The si must be distinct. ’ in ASCII. It provides an explicit specification of the values of the subsort s of s , in contrast to the implicit specification provided by using subsort declarations and overloaded operation symbols. The subsort definition declares the sort s; it declares the embedding of s as a subsort of s , which must already be declared in the local environment; and it asserts that the values of s are precisely (the projection of) those values of the variable v from s for which the formula F holds.

Sect. 2). ID ::= MIX-TOKEN ::= BRACED-ID ::= BRACKET-ID::= EMPTY-BRS ::= id MIX-TOKEN+ TOKEN | PLACE | BRACED-ID | BRACKET-ID | EMPTY-BRS braced-id ID bracket-id ID empty-braces | empty-brackets An identifier may also be a mixfix identifier 4 ‘t0 __ . . __tn ’, consisting of a sequence of possibly-empty mixfix tokens ti interspersed with place-holders, each place-holder being written as a pair of underscores ‘__’. Mixfix identifiers allow the use of mixfix notation for application of operations and predicates to argument terms in concrete syntax.

Due not only to overloading of predicate and/or operation symbols, but also to implicit embeddings from subsorts into supersorts, a well-sorted atomic formula may have several non-equivalent expansions, preventing it from being well-formed. Qualifications on operation and predicate symbols, or explicit sorts on terms, may be used to determine the intended expansion (up to the equivalence indicated above) and make the enclosing formula well-formed. Membership MEMBERSHIP ::= membership TERM SORT A membership formula is written: T ∈s The sign displayed as ‘∈’ is input as ‘in’.
