When designing a tractable static analysis, one usually needs to approximate the trace semantics. This paper proposes a systematic way of regaining some knowledge about the traces by performing the abstraction over a partition of the set of traces instead of the set itself. This systematic refinement is not only theoretical but tractable: we give automatic procedures to build pertinent partitions of the traces and show the efficiency on an implementation integrated in the Astrée static analyzer… CONTINUE READING
