We will upate the slides during the semester and they are not considered to be complete until the end of the semester.
Exercises also started on October 4th.
A. Biere. Tutorial on Model
Checking, Modelling and Verification in Computer Science.
V. D'Silva, D. Kröning, Daniel and G. Weissenbacher.
Model Checking: Algorithmic Verification and Debugging. Communications of the ACM, November 2009.
Predicate abstraction checks for simple example on the slides in SMT2 syntax: pred0.smt, pred1.smt, pred2.smt, pred3.smt, pred4.smt, pred5.smt. All should be 'sat', except for the last one pred5.smt, where we assume i != INT_MAX. The check pred2.smt actually shows, that we would need "b = *;" instead of "if (b) b = *;" if we consider bit-precise reasoning (so 32 bit 2-complement int and not integers).
Our award winning SMT solver Boolector.
Z3 SMT solver with source code.
New genbprbsrch.sh script for generating SMT2 bit-vector formulas for bit-precise reasoning about binary search.

Boolean satisfiability. From theoretical hardness to practical success. Communications of the ACM, August 2009.
R. Brummayer, A. Biere. Local Two-Level And-Inverter Graph Minimization without Blowup. In Proc. 2nd Doctoral Workshop on Mathematical and Engineering Methods in Computer Science (MEMICS'06), Mikulov, Czechia, October 2006.
C32SAT is a satisfiability checker for boolean C expressions. It can check whether they can be satisfied, are tautological, or can potentially be undefined according to the C99 standard.
