Formal Methods: An Appetizer

Book Description

This textbook is an introduction to the use of formal methods ranging from semantics of key constructs to techniques for the and verification of programs. The authors use program as the mechanism for representing the control structure of programs in order to find a balance between generality and conceptual complexity.

The early chapters on program graphs and the Guarded Commands language are sufficient introduction for most readers to then enjoy a plug-and-play approach to the remaining chapters. These explain formal methods for analysing the behaviour of programs in various ways ranging from verification, via program analysis and language-based , to model checking. The remaining chapters present language extensions with procedures and concurrency and cover their semantics.

The book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in development, and the text is supported throughout with exercises of varying grades of difficulty. The authors have developed an online learning environment that allows students to create examples beyond those covered in the main text, and in the book appendices they present programming aimed at implementing central parts of the development using the functional language F#.
