This book presents a set of 8 papers accompanying the lectures of leading researchers given at the 6th edition of the International School on Formal Methods for the Design of Computer, Communication and Software Systems, SFM 2006, held in Bertinoro, Italy in May 2006.
SFM 2006 was devoted to formal techniques for hardware verification and covers several aspects of the hardware design process, including hardware design languages and simulation, property specification formalisms, automatic test pattern generation, symbolic trajectory evaluation, BDD-based and SAT-based model checking, decision procedures, refinement, theorem proving, and the verification of floating point units.
