In this submission array-based binary minimum heaps are formalized. The correctness of the following heap operations is proved: insert, get-min, delete-min and make-heap. These are then used to verify an in-place heapsort. The formalization is based on IMP2, an imperative program verification framework implemented in Isabelle/HOL. The verified heap functions are iterative versions of the partly recursive functions found in "Algorithms and Data Structures – The Basic Toolbox" by K. Mehlhorn and P. Sanders and "Introduction to Algorithms" by T. H. Cormen, C. E. Leiserson, R. L. Rivest and C. Stein.
