where equiv1 and equiv2 are known equivalence relations, event-name, if supplied, is a symbol and all other arguments are as specified in the documentation for defthm. The defrefinement macro expands into a call of defthm. The name supplied is equiv1-refines-equiv2, unless event-name is supplied, in which case it is used as the name. The term supplied states that equiv1 refines equiv2. The rule-class :refinement is added to the rule-classes specified, if it is not already there. All other arguments to the generated defthm form are as specified by the other keyword arguments above.
