Intentional adequacy of computer programs as the experimental reference of agent-based social simulation

Nuno David, Jaime Simão Sichman, Helder Coelho
2005 Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '05  
The classical theory of computation is not an adequate model of reality for agent-based simulation in the social sciences.  ...  The paradigm of intentional computation seems to be the only one possible to reflect the multiparadigmatic character of social science in terms of agent-based computational social science.  ...  One is based on the formal and empirical logic of program verification in which necessary conditions about program behaviors are specified and verified empirically.  ...

2006 IEEE Intelligent Systems  
Confidence in the correctness of the proof is very high because it has been generated and checked automatically by computer.  ...  Verified software consists of programs that have been proved free of certain rigorously specified kinds of error.  ...  He has proposed program verification as a computer science Grand Challenge. Deductive software verification is a core technology of formal methods.  ...

Formalizing and Operationalizing Industrial Standards [chapter]

Dominik Dietrich, Lutz Schröder, Ewaryst Schulz
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This enables a wide variety of added-value services based on formal reasoning, including verification of parameterized designs and simplification of standards for particular configurations.  ...  We develop a methodology and tools to systematically formalize such standards, in particular their domain specific calculation methods, in order to support the automatic verification of functional properties  ...  Acknowledgements The work reported here was supported by the FormalSafe project conducted by DFKI Bremen and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (FKZ 01IW07002).  ...

AlgebraicSystems: Compositional Verification for Autonomous System Design [article]

Georgios Bakirtzis, Ufuk Topcu
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We propose AlgebraicSystems, a conglomeration of algebraic methods to assign semantics and categorical primitives to give computational meaning to relationships between models so that the formalisms and  ...  Compositional verification attempts to combat emergence by implementing model transformation as structure-preserving maps between model views.  ...  To be fruitful in the program of compositional systems theory [2, 6] , we must develop a computational interpretation of algebras and their associated horizontal and vertical composition rules.  ...

Formal Verification of Floating-Point Programs

Sylvie Boldo, Jean-Christophe Filliatre
2007 Computer Arithmetic  
This paper introduces a methodology to perform formal verification of floating-point C programs.  ...  Then verification conditions expressing the correctness of the programs are obtained in the usual way and can be discharged interactively with the Coq proof assistant, using an existing Coq formalization  ...  The authors are also grateful to Micaela Mayero and François Clément for careful readings of this paper.  ...
