Dear experts:Raw Message

Now I meet a problem of formalization of a parameterized bit-vector.

Here a parameterized bit-vector. means that the width of the bit vector is

a parmeterize, for instance a variable in a program (hardware design) is a

word of some length k. I want to prove that some property P on the varaible

is correct for any k.

I notice that the examples usually are on a fixed-length word such as 32

word, 8 word. For instance, a lemma

lemma "0b110 AND 0b101 = (0b100 :: 5 word)" by simp

I want to have a lemma such as

lemma lemmaTest: "0b110 AND 0b101 = (0b100 :: k word)" by simp, where k is

any natural number which is greater than or equal to 3.

But obviously lemmaTest is not allowed in Isabelle.

How to formalize such a lemma? Or I can be shown some examples which

formalize the parameterized-word problems.

regards!
