Mathematical theory of computation by Zohar Manna ( Book )

Calculus of computation decision procedures with applications to verification by Aaron R Bradley ( )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Computational logic is a fast-growing field with applications in artificial intelligence, constraint solving, and the design and verification of software and hardware systems. Written with graduate and advanced undergraduate students in mind, this textbook introduces computational logic from the foundations of first-order logic to state-of-the-art decision procedures for arithmetic, data structures, and combination theories." "This textbook also presents a logical approach to engineering correct software. The increasing ubiquity of computers makes implementing correct systems more important than ever. Verification exercises develop the reader's facility in specifying and verifying software using logic. The treatment of verification concludes with an introduction to the static analysis of software, an important component of modern verification systems." "For readers interested in learning more about computational logic, decision procedures, verification, and other areas of formal methods, the final chapter outlines courses of further study."--Jacket

Lectures on the logic of computer programming by Zohar Manna ( Book )
19 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 359 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 )
16 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reactive systems are computing systems which are interactive, such as real-time 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 self-contained 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
Verification : theory and practice : essays dedicated to Zohar Manna on the occasion of his 64th birthday by Nachum Dershowitz ( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Temporal verification of reactive systems : safety by Zohar Manna ( Book )
13 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and German and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents an extensive verification methodology for proving that reactive systems meet their specifications, expressed as safety properties in the language of temporal logic. The methods include deductive approaches based on theorem proving and fully automatic approaches based on model checking. All researchers and students interested in the analysis and verification of reactive and concurrent systems will find this book to be a comprehensive guide on how formal techniques can be used to ensure the correctness of such systems. An educational version of the Stanford Temporal Prover (STeP), a tool which supports the verification of reactive systems, is available for use with this book

Is "sometime" sometimes better than "always"? : Intermittent assertions in proving program correctness by Zohar Manna ( Book )
13 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper explores a technique for proving the correctness and termination of programs simultaneously. This approach, which we call the intermittent-assertion 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 well-founded 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 )
6 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 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 machine-oriented deductive-tableau 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 )
9 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A proof system based on temporal logic is presented for proving properties of concurrent programs based on the shared-variables 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 first-order 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
Completing the temporal picture by Zohar Manna ( Book )
7 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 oll 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
