Topic: Understanding the Kernel

I find the IMO challenge a very interesting idea; to understand how to apply search algorithms though I would like to understand what happens in Lean on the lowest level possible. Is there a good resource explaining the minimal kernel in lean perhaps?

Have you seen Mario's thesis?

That explains Lean's type theory in detail. Is that the kind of resource you want?

Ah yeah I think i've seen that. It's interesting but a bit I would like something closer to the programming level if that makes sense?

That sounds interesting indeed!

@Marijn Stollenga depending on the level of detail you are looking for, I would recommend reading one of the reference kernels. I wrote one in Haskell many years ago (https://github.com/leanprover/tc) and there are others floating around in other languages.

I saw you Haskell paper, so funny XD. I saw that it kind of abruptly ended? Is everything there, I guess I should learn Haskell.
Maybe a good project is to port that to some other language (Zig perhaps).
