Refining Model Checking by Abstract Interpretation

  title={Refining Model Checking by Abstract Interpretation},

  journal={Automated Software Engineering},
Formal methods combining abstract interpretation and model-checking have been considered for automated analysis of software. In abstract model-checking, the semantics of an infinite transition system is abstracted to get a finite approximation on which temporal-logic/μ-calculus model-checking can be directly applied. The paper proposes two improvements of abstract model-checking which can be applied to infinite abstract transition systems: iA new combination of forwards and backwards abstract… CONTINUE READING
