Formally Verifying Dynamic Properties of Knowledge Based Systems [chapter]

Perry Groot, Annette ten Teije, Frank van Harmelen
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have used the KIV interactive theorem prover to obtain machine-assisted proofs for all the properties and theorems in this paper.  ...  In this paper we study dynamic properties of knowledge-based systems. We argue the importance of such dynamic properties for the construction and analysis of knowledge-based systems.  ...  Finally, for both case studies we have suggested a general approach that could be applied to other problem solving methods in order to obtain the same results for those methods.  ...

Verifying Concurrent Systems with Symbolic Execution

M. Balser
2002 Journal of Logic and Computation  
An inplementation in the interactive theorem prover KIV has shown that this technique offers a high degree of automation and allows simple, local invariants.  ...  For sequential programs symbolic execution is a very intuitive, interactive proof strategy. In this paper we will adopt this technique for parallel programs.  ...  However, it should be noted that the calculus has been implemented in KIV [2] , an integrated development environment for formally developing correct systems.  ...
