  • Contains 15 scientific articles written by leading scientists
  • Coverage spans the entire breadth of the scientific work of Amir Pnueli, with a focus on the development and the application of formal methods
  • Includes the first chapter of the unpublished Volume III of Zohar Manna and Amir Pnueli’s work on the verification of reactive systems using temporal logic techniques
This volume is dedicated to the memory of Amir Pnueli: a great scientist, a colleague and a friend. Amir touched our lives in several ways. As a scientist, Amir had the exceptionally deep insight that can open a new researcharea with a cleverly crafted paper. Having published over 250 papers, and won the Turing Award, the highest awarded recognition in computer science, Amir is no doubt one of the most brilliant and visionary computer scientists of all times. As a colleague and research collaborator, Amir steered the entire ?eld of research in unforeseen, original, directions. As a mentor, Amir was admired by the students that were lucky to be supervised by him. Amir will always be remembered as a colleague and a friend, who, with his kind manners and great vision has in- enced and will continue to in?uence present and future generations of computer scientists.
