This paper describes the theoretical principles of a verification method with proof scores in the CafeOBJ algebraic specification language. The verification method focuses on specifications with conditional equations and realizes systematic theorem proving (or interactive verification). The method is explained using a simple but instructive example, and the necessary theoretical foundations, which justify every step of the verification, are described with precise mathematical definitions. Some important theorems that result from the definitions are also presented.
