  Description     : a dependently typed functional programming language and proof assistant

Agda is a dependently typed functional programming language: It has
inductive families, which are like Haskell's GADTs, but they can be
indexed by values and not just types. It also has parameterised
modules, mixfix operators, Unicode characters, and an interactive
Emacs interface (the type checker can assist in the development of
your code).
Agda is a proof assistant: It is an interactive system for writing
and checking proofs. Agda is based on intuitionistic type theory, a
foundational system for constructive mathematics developed by the
Swedish logician Per Martin-Lf. It has many similarities with other
proof assistants based on dependent types, such as Coq, Epigram and
