**Table of Contents**

Matita is an interactive theorem prover (or proof assistant) with the following characteristics:

It is based on a variant of the Calculus of (Co)Inductive Constructions (CIC). CIC is also the logic of the Coq proof assistant.

It adopts a procedural proof language, but it has a new set of small step tacticals that improve proof structuring and debugging.

It has a stand-alone graphical user interface (GUI) inspired by CtCoq/Proof General. The GUI is implemented according to the state of the art. In particular:

It is based and fully integrated with Gtk/Gnome.

An on-line help can be browsed via the Gnome documentation browser.

Mathematical formulae are rendered via Unicode.

It allows the use of the typical ambiguous mathematical notation by means of a disambiguating parser.
