Declarative programming for verification

Michael Leuschel
2008 Proceedings of the 10th international ACM SIGPLAN symposium on Principles and practice of declarative programming - PPDP '08  
This paper summarises roughly ten years of experience using declarative programming for developing tools to validate formal specifications. More precisely, we present insights gained and lessons learned while implementing animators and model checkers in Prolog for various specification languages, ranging from process algebras such as CSP to model-based specifications such as Z and B.
