Lectures on the logic of computer programming by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
21 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This monograph deals with aspects of the computer programming process that involve techniques derived from mathematical logic. The author focuses on proving that a given program produces the intended result whenever it halts, that a given program will eventually halt, that a given program is partially correct and terminates, and that a system of rewriting rules always halts. Also, the author describes the intermediate behavior of a given program, and discusses constructing a program to meet a given specification

The temporal logic of reactive and concurrent systems by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reactive systems are computing systems which are interactive, such as realtime systems, operating systems, concurrent systems, control systems, etc. They are among the most difficult computing systems to program. Temporal logic is a formal tool/language which yields excellent results in specifying reactive systems. This volume, the first of two, subtitled Specification, has a selfcontained introduction to temporal logic and, more important, an introduction to the computational model for reactive programs, developed by Zohar Manna and Amir Pnueli of Stanford University and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, respectively

Is "sometime" sometimes better than "always"? : Intermittent assertions in proving program correctness by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper explores a technique for proving the correctness and termination of programs simultaneously. This approach, which we call the intermittentassertion method, involves documenting the program with assertions that must be true at some time when control is passing through the corresponding point, but that need not be true every time. The method, introduced by Knuth and further developed by Burstall, promises to provide a valuable complement to the more conventional methods. The technique is introduced and illustrated with a number of examples. It is then shown that a correctness proof using the invariant assertion method or the subgoal induction method can always be expressed using intermittent assertions instead, but that the reverse is not always the case. The method can also be used just to prove termination, and any proof of termination using the conventional wellfounded sets approach can be rephrased as a proof using intermittent assertions. Finally, it is shown how the method can be applied to prove the validity of program transformations and the correctness of continuously operating programs

How to clear a block : a theory of plans by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Problems in commonsense and robot planning are approached by methods adapted from program synthesis research; planning is regard as an application of automated deduction. To support this approach, we introduce a variant of situational logic, called plan theory, in which plans are explicit objects. A machineoriented deductivetableau inference system is adapted to plan theory. Equations and equivalences of the theory are built into a unification algorithm for the system. Frame axioms are built into the resolution rule. Special attention is paid to the derivation of conditional and recursive plans. Inductive proofs of theorems for even the simplest planning problems, such as clearing a block, have been found to require challenging generalizations

Verification of concurrent programs : a temporal proof system by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A proof system based on temporal logic is presented for proving properties of concurrent programs based on the sharedvariables computation model. The system consists of three parts: the general uninterpreted part, the domain dependent part and the program dependent part. In the general part we give a complete proof system for firstorder temporal logic with detailed proofs of useful theorems. This logic enables reasoning about general time sequences. The domain dependent part characterizes the special properties of the domain over which the program operates. The program dependent part introduces axioms which restrict the time sequences considered to be execution sequences of a given program. The utility of the full system is demonstrated by proving invariance, liveness and precedence properties of several concurrent programs. Derived proof principles for these classes of properties, are obtained and lead to a compact representation of proofs

A hierarchy of temporal properties by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We propose a classification of temporal properties into a hierarchy which refines the known safetyliveness classification of properties. The new classification recognizes the classes of safety, guarantee, persistence, fairness, and hyperfairness. The classification suggested here is based on the different ways a property of finite computations can be extended into a property of infinite computations. For properties that are expressible by temporal logic and predicate automata, we provide a syntactic characterization of the formulae and automata that specify properties in the different classes. We consider the verification of properties over a given program, and provide a unique proof principle for each class."

Completing the temporal picture by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The paper presents a relatively complete proof system for proving the validity of temporal properties of reactive programs. The presented proof system improves on previous temporal systems, such as (MP83a) and (MP83b), in that it reduces the validity of program properties into pure assertional reasoning, not involving additional temporal reasoning. The proof system is based on the classification of temporal properties according to the Borel hierarchy, providing an appropriate proof rule for each of the main classes, such as safety, response, and progress properties

Fundamentals of deductive program synthesis by
Zohar Manna(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "An informal tutorial is presented for program synthesis, with an emphasis on deductive methods. According to this approach, to construct a program meeting a given specification, we prove the existence of an object meeting the specified conditions. The proof is restricted to be sufficiently constructive, in the sense that, in establishing the existence of the desired output, the proof is forced to indicate a computational method for finding it. That method becomes the basis for a program that can be extracted from the proof. The exposition is based on the deductivetableau system, a theoremproving framework particularly suitable for program synthesis

An interleaving model for real time by
T. A Henzinger(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The interleaving model is both adequate and sufficiently abstract to allow for the practical specification and verification of many properties of concurrent systems. We incorporate real time into this model by defining the abstract notion of a realtime transition system as a conservative extension of traditional transition systems: qualitative fairness requirements are replaced (and superseded) by quantitative lowerbound and upperbound realtime requirements for transitions. We present proof rules to establish lower and upper realtime bounds for response properties of realtime transition systems. This proof system can be used to verify boundedinvariance and boundedresponse properties, such as timely terrnination of sharedvariables multiprocess systems, whose semantics is defined in terms of realtime transition systems
