Lazy abstraction with interpolants, also known as the Impact algorithm, is en vogue as a state-of-the-art software model-checking technique for sequential programs. However, a direct extension of the Impact algorithm to concurrent programs is bound to be inefficient as it has to explore all thread interleavings, which leads to control-state explosion. To this end, we present a new algorithm that combines a new, symbolic form of partial-order reduction with Impact. Our algorithm carries out the… CONTINUE READING
