We wrote this book with an undergraduate and beginning graduate audience in mind. It allows users to write and verify annotated programs in the pi braadley language. Logic is the calculus of computation. Chapters 1 and 2 begin our presentation with a review of propositional and predicate logic.

The system and a set of examples, including the programs listed in this book, are available for download from http: 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 work is subject to copyright. Chapter 9 discusses the classic caculus closure algorithm for equality with uninterpreted functions and extends it to reason about data structures like lists, trees, and arrays.

Much of the material will be familiar to the reader who previously studied logic. These procedures reason inductively about programs to aid in. We have annotated several sections with a to indicate that they provide additional depth that is unnecessary for understanding subsequent material.

The methods are general. The chapter presents a general methodology and two instances of the method for deducing arithmetical properties of programs. The final chapter outlines courses of further study. Verification exercises are given to develop the computattion facility in specifying and verifying software using calxulus. The book has two parts.


Each chapter ends with a set of exercises. This acceptance into everyday engineering cannot come too soon: Remaining errors and shortcomings are our responsibility. Bradley June Zohar Manna.

Additionally, all proofs may be skipped without preventing a general understanding of bardley material. Their suggestions helped us to improve the presentation substantially. Chapter 5 turns to the primary motivating application of computational logic in this book, the task of verifying programs. Part II trades generality for decidability and e ciency. Mann are liable for prosecution under the German Copyright Law. Overall, this book is very well written, thoughtfully constructed, and substantive yet accessible.

There are two main tracks: Learning to verify programs is about bradle di cult for students as learning. 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.

We have undoubtedly missed some important contributions, for which we apologize.

Some require just a mechanical understanding of the material, while others require a calculjs understanding or ask the reader to think beyond what is presented in the book. Chapter 4 reviews induction, introducing some forms of induction that may be new to the reader. The decision procedures of Chapters 8, 9, and 11 are all combinable using the Nelson-Oppen method.

Second, they are sometimes e ciently decidable when the full theory is not compare Chapters 7 and 8. Bloggat om The Calculus of Computation. For brradley audiences, additional exercises might include implementing decision procedures or invariant generation procedures and exploring certain topics in greater depth see Chapter Handbook of Computability Theory, Classical recursion theory, Elsevier, The textbook also presents a logical approach to engineering correct software.

First, they are sometimes decidable when the full theory is not see Chapters 9, 10, and Decision procedures are most useful when they are combined. It is bound to become a standard textbook in program verification. We thank the following people for their comments throughout the writing of this book: Skickas inom vardagar.

To my wife, Sarah A. Chapter 12 presents a methodology for constructing invariant generation procedures. Induction provides the mathematical basis for analyzing program correctness. Chapters 9 and 11 turn to decision procedures for non-arithmetical computayion. To my grandchildren, Itai Calcculus Ori Z.
