Automatic proof-search heuristics in the Maude invariant analyzer tool
Capítulo - Parte de Libro
The Invariant Analyzer Tool is an interactive tool that mechanizes an inference system for proving safety properties of concurrent systems, which may be infinite-state or whose set of initial states may be infinite. This paper presents the automatic proof-search heuristics at the core of the Maude Invariant Analyzer Tool, which provide a substantial degree of automation and can automatically discharge many proof obligations without user intervention. These heuristics can take advantage of equationally defined equality predicates and include rewriting, narrowing, and SMT-based proof-search techniques.
