Addresses all the current issues in computer aided verification and model checking
Features contributions from leading innovators in the field, presenting the state of the technology
Explores topics ranging from foundational and methodological issues to the evaluation of major tools and systems
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computer Aided Verification held in Berlin, Germany in July 2007. The conference was run in conjunction with the 14th Workshop on Model Checking Software
Thirty-three full papers are presented, together with fourteen tool papers, three invited papers, and four invited tutorials. These papers were contributed by leading innovators in computer aided verification. Collectively, they represent the state of the technology. All the current issues in computer aided verification and model checking—from foundational and methodological issues to the evaluation of major tools and systems—are addressed.
The papers are organized into topical sections on compositionality, verification process, timed synthesis and games, infinite state verification, tool environments, shapes, concurrent program verification, reactive designs, parallelization, constraints and decisions, probabilistic verification, abstraction, assume-guarantee reasoning, hybrid systems, program analysis, SAT, and decision procedures.
