We present an approach to software verification by program inversion, exploiting recent progress in the field of automatic program transformation, partial deduction and abstract interpretation. Abstraction-based partial deduction can work on infinite state spaces and produce finite representations of infinite solution sets. We illustrate the potential of this approach for infinite model checking of safety properties.
