Sanity Checks in Formal Verification

  title={Sanity Checks in Formal Verification},
  author={Orna Kupferman},
One of the advantages of temporal-logic model-checking tools is their ability to accompany a negative answer to the correctness query by a counterexample to the satisfaction of the specification in the system. On the other hand, when the answer to the correctness query is positive, most model-checking tools provide no additional information. In the last few years there has been growing awareness to the importance of suspecting the system or the specification of containing an error also in the… CONTINUE READING
