iProver-Eq: an instantiation-based theorem prover with equality. iProver-Eq is an implementation of an instantiation-based calculus Inst-Gen-Eq which is complete for first-order logic with equality. iProver-Eq extends the iProver system with superposition-based equational reasoning and maintains the distinctive features of the Inst-Gen method. In particular, first-order reasoning is combined with efficient ground satisfiability checking where the latter is delegated in a modular way to any state-of-the-art SMT solver. The first-order reasoning employs a saturation algorithm making use of redundancy elimination in form of blocking and simplification inferences. We describe the equational reasoning as it is implemented in iProver-Eq, the main challenges and techniques that are essential for efficiency.
