Scalable error detection using boolean satisfiability

  title={Scalable error detection using boolean satisfiability},
  author={Yichen Xie and Alexander Aiken},
We describe a software error-detection tool that exploits recent advances in boolean satisfiability (SAT) solvers. Our analysis is path sensitive, precise down to the bit level, and models pointers and heap data. Our approach is also highly scalable, which we achieve using two techniques. First, for each program function, several optimizations compress the size of the boolean formulas that model the control- and data-flow and the heap locations accessed by a function. Second, summaries in the… CONTINUE READING
