PARTHEO: A high-performance parallel theorem prover. PARTHEO, a sound and complete or-parallel theorem prover for first-order logic is presented. The proof calculus is model elimination. PARTHEO consists of a uniform network of sequential theorem provers communicating via message passing. Each sequential prover is implemented as an extension of Warren’s abstract machine. PARTHEO is written in parallel C and is running on a network of 16 transputers. The paper comprises a description of the system architecture, the theoretical background, details of the implementation, and results of performance measurements.
