Second, they are sometimes e ciently decidable when the full theory is manba compare Chapters 7 and 8. 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.

Bradley June Zohar Manna. It allows users to write and verify annotated programs in the pi programming language. Chapter 5 turns to the primary motivating application of computational logic in this book, the task of verifying programs. The Calculus of Computation, Springer, Part II trades generality for decidability and e ciency. Learning to verify programs is about as di cult for students as learning.

Violations are liable for prosecution under the Computatiion Copyright Law. This book can be used in various fhe and taught at multiple levels. Chapter 11 presents decision procedures for larger fragments of theories that formalize array-like data structures.

We thank the following people for their comments throughout the writing of this book: Bloggat om The Calculus of Computation. There are two main tracks: These latter exercises are annotated with a. We welcome corrections, comments, and historical anecdotes. Verification exercises are given to develop the reader’s facility in specifying and verifying software using logic. Skickas inom vardagar.


Much of the material will be familiar to the reader who previously studied logic. We wrote this book with an undergraduate and beginning graduate audience majna mind. Chapter 9 discusses the classic congruence closure algorithm for equality with uninterpreted functions and extends it to reason about data structures like lists, trees, and arrays.

Stanford University, Aaron R. The chapter presents a general methodology and two instances of the method for deducing arithmetical properties of programs. Chapter 12 presents a methodology for constructing invariant generation procedures.

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. To my wife, Sarah A. Computahion my grandchildren, Itai Maya Ori Z.

These procedures reason inductively about programs to aid in. Some require just a mechanical understanding of the material, while others require a conceptual understanding or ask the reader to think beyond what is presented in the book. We have annotated several sections with a to indicate that they provide additional depth that is unnecessary for understanding subsequent material.

Handbook of Computability Theory, The methods are general. The final chapter outlines courses of further study. We have undoubtedly missed some important contributions, for which we apologize. The decision procedures of Chapters 8, 9, and 11 are all combinable using the Nelson-Oppen method. The material is substantial; it is organized very thoughtfully; the writing is concise but simple, easy to follow, and illustrated with ample examples First, they are sometimes decidable when the full theory is not see Chapters 9, 10, and Remaining errors and shortcomings are our responsibility.

The use of general descriptive names, registered names, trademarks, etc. Overall, this book is very well written, thoughtfully constructed, and substantive yet accessible.

For certain audiences, additional exercises might include implementing decision procedures or invariant generation procedures and exploring certain topics in greater depth see Chapter This work is subject to copyright.

Additionally, all proofs may be skipped without preventing a general understanding of the material. The system and a set of examples, including the programs listed in this book, are available for download from http: This acceptance into everyday engineering cannot come too soon: Chapters 1 and 2 begin our presentation with a review of propositional and predicate logic.
