Nir Classical recursion theory, Elsevier, The decision procedures of Chapters 8, 9, and 11 are all combinable using the Nelson-Oppen method. The system and a set of examples, including the programs listed in this book, are available for download from http: For certain audiences, additional exercises might include implementing decision procedures or invariant generation procedures and exploring certain topics in greater depth see Chapter This work is subject to copyright. Chapter 11 presents decision procedures for larger fragments of theories that formalize array-like data structures. Part II trades generality for decidability and e ciency. Chapter 12 presents a methodology for constructing invariant generation procedures.

The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules About this Textbook Computational logic is a fast-growing field with applications in artificial intelligence, constraint solving, and the design and verification of software and hardware systems.
Written with graduate and advanced undergraduate students in mind, this textbook introduces computational logic from the foundations of first-order logic to state-of-the-art decision procedures for arithmetic, data structures, and combination theories. This textbook also presents a logical approach to engineering correct software.
The increasing ubiquity of computers makes implementing correct systems more important than ever. The treatment of verification concludes with an introduction to the static analysis of software, an important component of modern verification systems. For readers interested in learning more about computational logic, decision procedures, verification, and other areas of formal methods, the final chapter outlines courses of further study.
Reviews " The material is substantial; it is organized very thoughtfully; the writing is concise but simple, easy to follow, and illustrated with ample examples Overall, this book is very well written, thoughtfully constructed, and substantive yet accessible.
It is bound to become a standard textbook in program verification.

Tojara We welcome corrections, comments, and historical anecdotes. Chapter 12 presents a methodology for constructing invariant generation procedures. The system and a set of examples, including the programs listed in this book, are available for download from http: Learning to verify programs is about as di cult for students as learning. Each chapter ends with a set of exercises. First, they are sometimes decidable when the full theory is not see Chapters 9, 10, and For now, developing a static analysis is one of the easiest ways of bringing formal methods into general usage, as a typical static analysis requires little or no input from the programmer. Chapter 11 presents decision procedures for larger fragments of theories that formalize array-like data structures. The Calculus of Computation Induction provides the mathematical basis for analyzing program correctness.
