Proving linearizability with temporal logic

Simon Bäumler, Gerhard Schellhorn, Bogdan Tofan, Wolfgang Reif
2009 Formal Aspects of Computing  
Linearizability is a correctness criterion for concurrent systems. In this report, we describe how temporal logic can be used to prove linearizability of a concurrent lock-free stack implementation.  ...  The logic used is an extended variant of Interval Temporal Logic, which is integrated in the KIV interactive theorem prover.  ...  This allows us to mix programs with temporal logic formulas. Program operators describe only system steps that alternate with arbitrary environment steps.  ...

On the definition of sequential consistency

Ali Sezgin, Ganesh Gopalakrishnan
2005 Information Processing Letters  
A relation between what actually happens (temporal order) and what seems to happen (logical order) is argued to be necessary. An alternative definition is proposed.  ...  The definition of sequential consistency is compared with an intuitive notion of correctness.  ...  response in the temporal order is also the i th response in the logical order.For another example, we have the following result for linearizability[4]: Lemma 2 For a linearizable system, b l = p − 1 where  ...

Embedding Hindsight Reasoning in Separation Logic [article]

Roland Meyer, Thomas Wies, Sebastian Wolff
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Proving linearizability of concurrent data structures remains a key challenge for verification.  ...  We substantiate the usefulness of our development by verifying the linearizability of the Logical Ordering (LO-)tree and RDCSS.  ...  The proof exercises the full power of our logic by combing a linearizability argument based on temporal interpolation with local reasoning in separation logic to handle the functional correctness specification  ...

Verifying Concurrent Data Structures Using Data-Expansion [chapter]

Tong Che
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We highlight the power of this lemma when combined with our generalized version of the classical Hindsight Lemma, which enables us to prove linearizability by reasoning about the temporal properties of  ...  the operations instead of reasoning about the linearizability points directly.  ...  So we know that no leaf node with key k exists in state σ d . The linearizability of effectful operations, which have fixed linearizability points, are not hard to prove. Lemma 6.  ...

The taming (timing) of the states

A Montanari
2000 Logic Journal of the IGPL  
Our main tools are metric and layered temporal logics originally proposed to model time granularity in various contexts.  ...  in computer science concentrated on the so-called (real-time) temporal logics of programs that take state as a primitive notion, and define time as an attribute of states.  ...  In order to deal with real-time systems, such logics have been provided with a metric of time, e.g. [1] .  ...

Yotam M. Y. Feldman, Constantin Enea, Adam Morrison, Noam Rinetzky, Sharon Shoham, Michael Wagner
2018 International Symposium on Distributed Computing  
Proving the linearizability of highly concurrent data structures, such as those using optimistic concurrency control, is a challenging task.  ...  We present a unifying proof argument for the correctness of unsynchronized traversals, and apply it to prove the linearizability of several highly concurrent search data structures, including an optimistic  ...  Proving Linearizability Proving linearizability of an algorithm like ours is challenging because searches are performed with no synchronization.  ...
