Static Verification of Message Passing Programs

Abstract

Many industrial applications, including safety-critical ones, consist of several disjoint components that use message passing to communicate according to some protocol. These components are typically highly concurrent, since message exchanges may occur in any order. Developing correct message passing programs is therefore very challenging, which makes proving their correctness crucial [4]. A popular API for implementing message passing programs is the Message Passing Interface (MPI) library. We focus on the modular verification of MPI programs. Related work mainly focuses on communication and considers abstract models rather than concrete implementations [10,5]. We consider concrete Java code and combine static verification with well-known techniques for reasoning about concurrent and distributed programs, based on process algebras [7].
