  author={S Nowak},
We aim at checking safety properties on systems with pointers which are naturally infinite state systems. In this paper, we introduce Symbolic Memory States, a new symbolic representation well suited to the verification of systems with pointers. We show SMS enjoys all the good properties needed to check safety properties, such as closure under union, canonicity of the representation and decidable inclusion. We also introduce pointer automata, a model for programs using dynamic allocation of… CONTINUE READING
