In this thesis, I designed and implemented a formally verified compiler for programs over arbitrary-width integers in Parametric Higher-Order Abstract Syntax. This was part of a larger project, Fiat-crypto, which seeks to produce formally verified machine-code implementations of Elliptic Curve Cryptography. My implementation outputs Qhasm, a high-level assembly language developed for the implementation of highly optimised cryptography, and maintains platform independence by being totally parametric over the width of system words.
