Superposition Reasoning about Quantified Bitvector Formulas

David Damestani, Laura Kovacs, Martin Suda
2019 2019 21st International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing (SYNASC)  
We describe recent extensions to the first-order theorem prover Vampire for proving theorems in the theory of fixed-sized bitvectors, possibly with quantifiers.  ...  Details are given on extending both the parser of Vampire as well as the theory reasoning framework of Vampire.  ...  That is, we did not rely on Z3 to reason about ground formulas generated by AVATAR; this way, theory reasoning about QBV formulas in Vampire's AVATAR framework was performed by relying on bitvector axioms  ...

Model Generation for Quantified Formulas: A Taint-Based Approach [chapter]

Benjamin Farinier, Sébastien Bardin, Richard Bonichon, Marie-Laure Potet
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Software verification methods have come to rely increasingly on reasoning over logical formulas modulo theory.  ...  and model generation of quantified formulas, yielding a more symmetric handling of quantified formulas in SMT.  ...  In pure first-order logic (without theories), quantifiers are mainly handled through resolution and superposition [1, 23] as done in Vampire [29, 21] and E [30] .  ...

Towards Bit-Width-Independent Proofs in SMT Solvers [article]

Aina Niemetz, Mathias Preiner, Andrew Reynolds, Yoni Zohar, Clark Barrett, Cesare Tinelli
2019 arXiv   pre-print
These approaches, however, cannot be used directly to reason about bit-vectors of symbolic bit-width.  ...  While this logic is undecidable, this approach can still solve many formulas by capitalizing on advancements in SMT solving for non-linear arithmetic and universally quantified formulas.  ...  Reasoning about fixed-size bitvectors suffices for many applications.  ...

Instantiation and Pretending to be an SMT Solver with Vampire

Giles Reger, Martin Suda, Andrei Voronkov
2017 International Workshop on Satisfiability Modulo Theories  
Secondly, it focuses on the problem of instantiation of quantified formulas and asks whether VAMPIRE needs it (it does) and whether it can directly borrow techniques from SMT solving (maybe).  ...  We discuss how Vampire reasons with problems containing both quantification and theories, the limitations this places on what it can do, and the advantages this provides over the standard SMT approach.  ...  Perhaps the most prominent of these is Hierarchic Superposition (HS) [2] , a generalisation of the superposition calculus for black-box style theory reasoning.  ...

A Deductive Verification Framework for Circuit-building Quantum Programs [article]

Christophe Chareton, Sébastien Bardin, François Bobot, Valentin Perrelle, Benoit Valiron
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Early attempts either suffer from the lack of automation or parametrized reasoning, or target high-level abstract algorithm description languages far from the current de facto consensus of circuit-building  ...  We provide for it a set of mathematical libraries, enabling reasoning about Qbricks-Spec formulas (see Section E.2 below for further details about these).  ...  Formula ϕ,ψ : The type system of Qbricks-Spec is extended with opaque types, equipped with constant functions and relations to reason upon them.  ...

Theory decision by decomposition

Maria Paola Bonacina, Mnacho Echenim
2010 Journal of symbolic computation  
The topic of this article is decision procedures for satisfiability modulo theories (SMT) of arbitrary quantifier-free formulae.  ...  We propose an approach that decomposes the formula in such a way that its definitional part, including the theory, can be compiled by a rewrite-based first-order theorem prover, and the residual problem  ...  born to reason about quantifiers and non-ground equalities.  ...

Interpolation Systems for Ground Proofs in Automated Deduction: a Survey

Maria Paola Bonacina, Moa Johansson
2015 Journal of automated reasoning  
We analyze interpolation in the presence of equality, and we demonstrate the color-based approach by giving a complete interpolation system for ground proofs by superposition.  ...  This does not imply that interpolants are quantifier-free. A theory is quantifier-free interpolating if quantifier-free input formulae are guaranteed to have quantifier-free interpolants.  ...  Since most reasoners transform closed formulae into sets, or conjunctions, of clauses, from now on we assume that A and B are disjoint sets of clauses.  ...

Analyzing Network Management Effects with SPIN and cTLA [chapter]

Gerrit Rothmaier, Andre Pohl, Heiko Krumm
2004 Security and Protection in Information Processing Systems  
Due to cTLA's connection to the temporal logic of actions TLA, formal analysis can resort to symbolic reasoning. Supplementarily, automated analysis can be applied.  ...  The semantics of cTLA specifications is directly defined by TLA formulas [Lam93] and the TLA methods for symbolic logical reasoning can be applied.  ...  In particular, superposition supports the so-called structured verification.  ...

Inductive verification of data model invariants in web applications using first-order logic

Ivan Bocić, Tevfik Bultan, Nicolás Rosner
2018 Automated Software Engineering : An International Journal  
Manysorted logic allows us to specify type information explicitly, thus lightening the burden of reasoning about type information during theorem proving.  ...  We noticed that the theorem prover did an excessive number of deductions solely to reason about the types of quantified variables and objects.  ...  We noticed that the theorem prover performed an excessive number of deductions solely to reason about the types of quantified variables and objects.  ...

Horn Clause Solvers for Program Verification [chapter]

Nikolaj Bjørner, Arie Gurfinkel, Ken McMillan, Andrey Rybalchenko
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Automatic program verification and symbolic model checking tools interface with theorem proving technologies that check satisfiability of formulas.  ...  Solving Horn clauses amounts to establishing Existential positive Fixed-point Logic formulas, a perspective that was promoted by Blass and Gurevich.  ...  In the world of constraint logic programming, CLP, expressing programs as Horn clauses and reasoning about Horn clauses has been pursued for several years, spearheaded by Joxan Jaffar and collaborators  ...
