We give semantic foundations to abstract domains consisting in first order logic formulæ in a theory, as used in verification tools or methods using SMT-solvers or theorem provers. We exhibit conditions for a sound usage of such methods with respect to multi-interpreted semantics and extend their usage to automatic invariant generation by abstract… CONTINUE READING
