A Practical Decision Procedure for Arithmetic with Function Symbols

Robert E. Shostak
1979 Journal of the ACM  
A practical procedure is presented for an extension of quantifier-free Presburger arithmetic that permits arbitrary unmterpreted predicate and function symbols This theory includes many of the formulas  ...  The extension of unquantified Presburger we shall be dealing with introduces, for each n _> 0, an unlimited number of n-ary function symbols (mterpreted as functions from Z n to Z) and n-ary predicate  ...  Spitzen for helpful discussions about this work.  ...

2006 Proceedings of the 14th ACM SIGSOFT international symposium on Foundations of software engineering - SIGSOFT '06/FSE-14  
The approach taken is that of reducing the theories of such data structures to the theories of equality and linear arithmetic for which efficient interpolating decision procedures exist.  ...  We present efficient procedures to construct interpolants for the theories of arrays, sets, and multisets using the reduction approach for obtaining decision procedures for complex data structures.  ...  We thank Shriram Krishnamurthi and Corina Pasareanu for many detailed comments.  ...
