Title: Correctness of two compilers for a Lisp subset

Author: London, Ralph L.

Date: October 1971

Abstract: Using mainly structural induction, proofs of correctness of each of two running Lisp compilers for the PDP-10 computer are given. Included are the rationale for presenting these proofs, a discussion of the proofs, and the changes needed to the second compiler to complete its proof.
