Optimization Modulo Theories (OMT) is an important extension of SMT which allows for finding models that optimize given objective functions, typically consisting in linear-arithmetic or pseudo-Boolean terms. However, many SMT and OMT applications, in particular from SW and HW verification, require handling bit-precise representations of numbers, which in SMT are handled by means of the theory of Bit-Vectors (BV) for the integers and that of Floating-Point Numbers (FP) for the reals respectively… CONTINUE READING
