We give an incremental, inductive (IC3) procedure to check coverability of well-structured transition systems. Our procedure generalizes the IC3 procedure for safety verification that has been successfully applied in finite-state hardware verification to infinite-state well-structured transition systems. We show that our procedure is sound, complete, and(More)
Model checkers based on Petri net coverability have been used successfully in recent years to verify safety properties of concurrent shared-memory or asynchronous message-passing software. We revisit a constraint approach to coverability based on classical Petri net analysis techniques. We show how to utilize an SMT solver to implement the constraint(More)
Motivated by applications in automating repetitive file manipulations, we present a tool called StriSynth, which allows end-users to perform transformations over data using examples. Based on provided examples, our tool automatically generates scripts for non-trivial file manipulations. Although the current focus of StriSynth are file manipulations, it(More)
We consider the following basic task in the testing of concurrent systems. The input to the task is a partial order of events, which models actions performed on or by the system and specifies ordering constraints between them. The task is to determine if some scheduling of these events can result in a bug. The number of schedules to be explored can, in(More)
Asynchronous programming has become ubiquitous in smartphone and web application development , as well as in the development of server-side and system applications. Many of the uses of asynchrony can be modeled by extending programming languages with asynchronous procedure calls—procedures not executed immediately, but stored and selected for execution at a(More)
