Majority Vote Algorithm Revisited Again

Tobias Nipkow

In his article \Experience with Software Specification and Verification Using LP, the Larch Proof Assistant, Manfred Broy verified (as one of his smaller case studies) the Majority Vote Algorithm by Boyer and Moore. LP requires that all user theories are expressed axiomatically. I reworked the example in Isabelle/HOL and turned it into a definitional development, thus proving its consistency. In the end, a short alternative proof is given.
