Meson is inspired by the Mizar language, which mimics the natural language used when proofs are written in English. Its name is meant to sound similar, while suggesting something small and light-weight.

This tutorial teaches the Meson language by example. Readers familiar with formal grammars may wish to also examine the Grammar, for a rigorous description of the language.
