By Tony Hoare (auth.), Peter Müller (eds.)

Software defects bring about huge, immense charges for the software program and society as an entire. whereas trying out turns out to be useful to discover insects, it truly is inadequate to teach the absence of definite sorts of error or software satisfies its specification. Such excessive degrees of software program caliber should be completed by way of software program verification, that's, by way of proving the correctness of a application with admire to its specification. software program verification has obvious great development over the past decade; it is still an lively examine subject and is now additionally changing into more and more renowned between practitioners. This educational includes chosen papers from the LASER summer time faculties 2007 and 2008, either one of which interested in correctness - utilized software program Verification in 2007 and Concurrency and Correctness in 2008. issues lined contain verification of fine-grain concurrency and transactions, the news version for concurrent object-oriented programming, the Spec# programming and verification method, verification within the prototype verification process PVS, and multi-core chip design.

Example text

Definition 8 (Processor tag). The processor tag p captures the locality of objects accessed by an entity of type T . SCOOP 49 – The processor tag p can be separate, formally written as p = . The object attached to the entity of type T is potentially handled by a different processor than the current processor. – The processor tag p can be explicit, formally written as p = α. The object attached to the entity of type T is handled by the processor specified by α. Definition 9 shows how a processor can be specified explicitly.

This could certainly lead to confusion if one of the tokens ever meets another at the same place. By allowing only limited and well-structured forms of composition, our calculus will confine each token to a disjoint region of the net, and ensure that tokens meet only at the entry to a transition, which is what is intended. Often, such a meeting place is a fan-in; it has only one exit, so that it reduces the number of tokens in the system. It is possible to think of all the entry and exit events for a transition as occurring simultaneously.

However, the absence of traitors does not imply full soundness. Soundness must also be guaranteed for types with explicit processor specifications. Definition 16 (Traitor). A traitor is an entity declared as non-separate but pointing to a separate object. We defer a full soundness proof to later work as described in section 14. 5 Feature Call and Feature Application A processor p can call features on objects that are either handled by p or by another processor q. A non-separate call is executed by p itself.
