Topic: Big Proof
Patrick Massot (Sep 03 2018 at 19:37):
I have a question for people who understand how Lean actually works. I had a very big proof that took forever to compile, and sometimes timed out. I broke that proof in two pieces, introducing a completely artificial lemma, statement how to go half way along the road. Now it's super fast. What's happening? I understand there is something called https://github.com/leanprover/lean/issues/1601 which tells me I cannot work interactively with big proofs. But I don't understand why it changes the non-interactive compilation time.

Who is planning to go to Big Proof (May 27-31, Edinburgh)? Usually flying to Europe for a week for me is insane, but I may be able to do this one. Especially if there will be some Lean people there it would be tempting.

I'm going to the Edinburgh thing.
Kevin Buzzard (Feb 12 2019 at 08:10):
I'll be there Monday to Wednesday

If @Patrick Massot goes, maybe he will finally get an answer to his question from 3 Sep 2018 in this very thread :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:
Rob Lewis (Feb 12 2019 at 08:45):
I'll be there.
Jeremy Avigad (Feb 12 2019 at 15:19):
I'll be there through Friday morning.
Simon Hudon (Feb 12 2019 at 15:49):
Do you guys know what you'll talk about?
Kevin Buzzard (Feb 12 2019 at 15:53):
Ursula did ask me to speak, and I said "OK, schemes/perfectoid spaces, or teaching?" and she didn't reply (yet), so I'm up in the air.

I will also be there and I just created a stream #Big Proof 2019
