Math Genius Wins University Place, Aged 9

A nine-year-old math prodigy was Thursday admitted to a Hong Kong university, telling reporters he struggled to communicate academically with his own age group.

March Boedihardjo, an Indonesian-Chinese boy resident in Hong Kong, earlier this month gained two grade As and a B in his A-levels -- normally taken by 18-year-olds -- enough for a place at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU).

The Coq Proof Assistant

Coq is a formal proof management system: a proof done with Coq is mechanically checked by the machine. In particular, Coq allows:
  • to define functions or predicates,
  • to state mathematical theorems and software specifications,
  • to develop interactively formal proofs of these theorems,
  • to check these proofs by a relatively small certification "kernel".
