By combining algorithmic learning, decision procedures, predicate abstraction, and simple templates for quantified formulae, we present an automated technique for finding loop invariants. Theoretically, this technique can find arbitrary first-order invariants (modulo a fixed set of atomic propositions and an underlying SMT solver) in the form of the given template and exploit the flexibility in invariants by a simple randomized mechanism. In our study, the proposed technique was able to find… CONTINUE READING
