Starling: Lightweight Concurrency Verification with Views [chapter]

Matt Windsor, Mike Dodds, Ben Simner, Matthew J. Parkinson
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose Starling, a new lightweight logic and automated tool for concurrency verification.  ...  Starling takes a proof outline written in an abstracted Hoare-logic style, and converts it into proof terms that can be discharged by a sequential solver.  ...  Proofs in Starling are written in a lightweight proof-outline style, with views annotating program points and constraints defining their meaning in the underlying domain.  ...

Concise Outlines for a Complex Logic: A Proof Outline Checker for TaDA (Full Paper) [article]

Felix A. Wolf and Malte Schwerhoff and Peter Müller
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Modern separation logics allow one to prove rich properties of intricate code, e.g. functional correctness and linearizability of non-blocking concurrent code.  ...  In this paper, we systematically develop a proof outline checker for the TaDA logic, which reduces the checking to a simpler verification problem, for which automated tools exist.  ...  .: Starling: Lightweight concurrency verification with views.

A Concurrent Program Logic with a Future and History [article]

Roland Meyer, Thomas Wies, Sebastian Wolff
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Verifying fine-grained optimistic concurrent programs remains an open problem.  ...  Modern program logics provide abstraction mechanisms and compositional reasoning principles to deal with the inherent complexity.  ...  From the point of view of automated verification, the difference does not matter. After all, there is no compositional way of computing the relies and guarantees. Program logic.  ...
