ADVANCED LOGIC(Formal Verification)A very short introduction to Model Checking and Program VerificationDepartment of Mathematical Sciences Rasool Ramezanian 


Description: A framework to make formal Descriptions of computer systems. Specification: A language to provide Specifications of the properties to be verified. Verification: A Verification method to establish whether the description of a system satisfies the specification. There are roughly two approaches to formal verification: In theorem proving approach, the system description is a set of formulas Γ (in a suitable logic), and the specification is another formula φ. The verification method consists of trying to logically infer φ from Γ. In
model checking approach, the system description is a model M for an
appropriate logic, and the specification is again a formula φ. The
verification method consists of computing whether a model M
satisfies φ. 

Course Grade: Your course grade will be determined by a combination of the following factors: 1. Students project (15%), 2. Students tasks (15%), and 3. final exam (70%). Students tasks will typically be handed in the lecture notes, and should be back in a week. Late tasks will not be accepted unless a permission is obtained in advance.
