Lean mathlib

Bors enabled project chat

Mathlib is a user maintained library for the Lean theorem prover. It contains both programming infrastructure and mathematics, as well as tactics that use the former and allow to develop the latter.


You can find detailed instructions to install Lean, mathlib, and supporting tools on our website.

Besides the installation guides above and Lean's general documentation, the documentation of mathlib consists of:

Much of the discussion surrounding mathlib occurs in a Zulip chat room. Since this chatroom is only visible to registered users, we provide an openly accessible archive of the public discussions. This is useful for quick reference; for a better browsing interface, and to participate in the discussions, we strongly suggest joining the chat. Questions from users at all levels of expertise are welcomed.
