Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present an abstraction refinement technique for the verification of universally quantified array assertions such as “all elements in the array are sorted”. Our technique can be seamlessly combined with existing software model checking algorithms. We implemented our technique in the ACSAR software model checker and successfully verified quantified array assertions for both text book examples and real-life examples taken from the Linux operating system kernel.
