Abstract: We present a formalization of Menger's Theorem for directed and undirected graphs in Isabelle/HOL. This well-known result shows that if two non-adjacent distinct vertices u, v in a directed graph have no separator smaller than n, then there exist n internally vertex-disjoint paths from u to v. The version for undirected graphs follows immediately because undirected graphs are a special case of directed graphs.
