Chapter 11 presents decision procedures for larger fragments of theories that formalize array-like data structures.

Each chapter ends with a set ans exercises. We thank the following people for their comments throughout the writing of this book: These latter exercises are annotated with a. The Calculus of Computation, Springer, Classical recursion theory, Elsevier, We welcome corrections, comments, and historical anecdotes.
We have annotated several sections with a to indicate that they provide additional depth that is unnecessary for understanding subsequent material.
Chapter 4 reviews induction, introducing some forms of induction that may be new to the reader. A First Course in Logic, Oxford. Verification exercises are given to develop the reader’s facility in specifying and verifying software using logic.

The material is substantial; it is organized very thoughtfully; the writing is concise but simple, easy to follow, and illustrated with ample examples Some require just a mechanical understanding of the material, while others require a conceptual understanding or ask the reader to think beyond what is presented in the book. The chapter presents a general methodology and two instances of the method for deducing arithmetical properties of programs.
For certain audiences, additional exercises might include implementing decision procedures or invariant generation procedures and exploring certain topics in greater depth see Chapter Remaining errors and shortcomings are our responsibility. The use of general descriptive names, registered names, trademarks, etc.
Their suggestions helped us to improve the presentation substantially. Bradley June Zohar Manna.
The Calculus of Computation
Decision procedures are most useful when they are combined. Logic is the calculus of computation. Induction provides the mathematical basis for analyzing program correctness. This acceptance into everyday engineering cannot come too soon: Chapter 5 turns to the primary motivating application of computational logic in this book, the task of verifying programs. The methods are general. Learning to verify programs is about as di cult for students as learning. pf
Handbook of Computability Theory, Bloggat om The Calculus of Computation. Maanna procedures reason inductively about programs to aid in.
We wrote this book with an undergraduate and beginning graduate audience in mind. The decision procedures of Chapters 8, tue, and 11 are all combinable using the Nelson-Oppen method. First, they are sometimes decidable when the full theory is not see Chapters 9, 10, and The system and a set of examples, including the programs listed in this book, are available for download from http: This work is subject to copyright.
Stanford University, Aaron R. This book can be used in various ways and taught at multiple levels. Chapters 1 and 2 begin our presentation with a review of propositional and predicate logic. Additionally, all proofs may be skipped without preventing a general understanding of the material.
Overall, this book msnna very well written, thoughtfully constructed, and substantive yet accessible. There are two main tracks: Comptation textbook also presents a logical approach to engineering correct software. We have undoubtedly missed some important contributions, for which we apologize.

To my wife, Sarah A. Chapter 9 discusses the classic congruence closure algorithm for equality with uninterpreted functions and extends it to reason about data structures like lists, trees, and arrays.
Much of the material will be familiar to the reader who previously studied logic. Duplication of this publication or parts thereof is permitted only under the provisions of the German Copyright Law of September 9,in its current version, and permission for use must always be obtained from Springer.
