HOL based first-order modal logic provers. First-order modal logics (FMLs) can be modeled as natural fragments of classical higher-order logic (HOL). The FMLtoHOL tool exploits this fact and it enables the application of off-the-shelf HOL provers and model finders for reasoning within FMLs. The tool bridges between the qmf-syntax for FML and the TPTP thf0-syntax for HOL. It currently supports logics K, K4, D, D4, T, S4, and S5 with respect to constant, varying and cumulative domain semantics. The approach is evaluated in combination with a meta-prover for HOL, which sequentially schedules various HOL reasoners. The resulting system is very competitive.
