TVLA: A System for Generating Abstract Interpreters [chapter]

Tal Lev-Ami, Roman Manevich, Mooly Sagiv
Building the Information Society  
TVLA (Three-Valued-Logic Analyzer) is a "YACC"-like framework for automatically constructing abstract interpreters from an operational semantics.  ...  The operational semantics is specified as a generic transition system based on first-order logic.  ...  The idea of automatically generating abstract semantics from concrete semantics was proposed in Cousot, 1997. TVLA is intended as a proof of concept for abstract interpreters.  ...

Revamping TVLA: Making Parametric Shape Analysis Competitive [chapter]

Igor Bogudlov, Tal Lev-Ami, Thomas Reps, Mooly Sagiv
Computer Aided Verification  
TVLA is a parametric framework for shape analysis that can be easily instantiated to create different kinds of analyzers for checking properties of programs that use linked data structures.  ...  The improvements were obtained by employing well-known techniques from the database community to reduce the cost of extracting information from shape descriptors and performing abstract interpretation  ...  Introduction In this paper, we review recent improvements to TVLA (Three-Valued-Logic Analyzer), a system for automatically generating a static-analysis implementation from the operational semantics of  ...

Partially Disjunctive Heap Abstraction [chapter]

Roman Manevich, Mooly Sagiv, Ganesan Ramalingam, John Field
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We implemented this abstraction in TVLA-a generic system for implementing program analyses.We conducted an empirical evaluation of the new abstraction and compared it with the powerset heap abstraction  ...  Disjunctive (powerset) abstractions capture such distinctions in a natural way. However, in general, powerset abstractions increase space and time costs by an exponential factor.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to thank Alexey Loginov for supplying us the tree benchmarks and the DSW benchmark, and Eran Yahav for supplying us the IOStream benchmarks, the KernelBench.1 benchmark  ...

Alexsa - Algorithm Explanation by Shape Analysis - Extensions to the TVLA System [article]

Ronald Bieber, Universität Des Saarlandes, Universität Des Saarlandes
2001
Since TVLA can be used for other applications than dynamic data structure analysis, we will not try to interpret the generated data ourselves.  ...  The problem is that the user may not see the shape graph as a purely abstract representation, but instead he or she will very likely combine the abstract view with own concrete interpretations.  ...  implementational issues for completeness, including a list of all classes and a complete list of changes made to TVLA.  ...

Compactly Representing First-Order Structures for Static Analysis [chapter]

R. Manevich, G. Ramalingam, J. Field, D. Goyal, M. Sagiv
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A fundamental bottleneck in applying sophisticated static analyses to large programs is the space consumed by abstract program states.  ...  The TVLA (Three-Valued Logic Analysis) program analysis and verification system models dynamic allocation precisely by representing program states as first-order structures.  ...  x = x->n; } } (a) (b) Abstract Interpretation in TVLA TVLA takes as input a control flow graph (CFG) of the program to be analyzedeach edge of which is annotated with a sequence of actions-and an abstract  ...

Verification of Java Programs with Interacting Analysis Plugins

Nathaniel Charlton
2006 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
We describe our implementation of a prototype checker for a subset of Java which combines predicate abstraction, 3-valued shape analysis and a decidable pointer analysis.  ...  In this paper we propose a modular framework for program analysis, where multiple program analysis tools are combined in order to exploit the particular advantages of each.  ...  Acknowledgement I would like to thank Michael Huth for our many fruitful discussions about this work.  ...

Abstraction Refinement via Inductive Learning [chapter]

Alexey Loginov, Thomas Reps, Mooly Sagiv
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper concerns how to automatically create abstractions for program analysis.  ...  We show that inductive learning, the goal of which is to identify general rules from a set of observed instances, provides new leverage on the problem.  ...  The TVLA system is a tool for creating such analyses [1] .  ...

Automatically Verifying Concurrent Queue Algorithms

Eran Yahav, Mooly Sagiv
2003 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Concurrent FIFO queues are a common component of concurrent systems. Using a single shared lock to prevent concurrent manipulations of queue contents reduces system concurrency.  ...  This paper shows how to automatically verify partial correctness of concurrent FIFO queue algorithms using existing abstract interpretation techniques.  ...  The imprecision in TVLA/3VMC occurs due to the fact that the system abstracts many of the dynamically allocated objects and threads into a single summary representation.  ...

Verification of B $$^+$$ trees by integration of shape analysis and interactive theorem proving

Gidon Ernst, Gerhard Schellhorn, Wolfgang Reif
2013 Journal of Software and Systems Modeling  
TVLA itself relies on problem specific constraints and lemmas, that were proven in KIV as a foundation for an overall correct analysis.  ...  To this purpose we define a mapping between typed algebraic heaps and TVLA.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Alexander Knapp, Axel Habermaier, and the anonymous reviewers for their valuable feedback.  ...

Algorithm animation using shape analysis

Dierk Johannes, Raimund Seidel, Reinhard Wilhelm
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 ACM symposium on Software visualization - SoftVis '05  
We visualise the abstract execution of an algorithm instead of animating the algorithm for executions on concrete input data. Algorithms under consideration are imperative pointer-based algorithms.  ...  This paper describes progress in a non-traditional approach to algorithm animation.  ...  TVLA needs to generate and distinguish many shape graphs for a correct analysis. Often, redundancies are introduced as well. The visualisation, however, does not need this level of detail.  ...

2014 Proceedings of the 2014 International SPIN Symposium on Model Checking of Software - SPIN 2014  
The semi-decision procedure is designed using concepts from abstract interpretation.  ...  The procedure uses an abstract domain of shape graphs to represent a set of heap structures, and computes an abstraction that overapproximates the set of satisfying models of a given formula.  ...  a more general language in which to specify equation systems.  ...
