(arXiv: 1804.09705) Abstract

We consider systems of strict multivariate polynomial inequalities over the
reals. All polynomial coefficients are parameters ranging over the reals, where
for each coefficient we prescribe its sign. We are interested in the existence
of positive real solutions of our system for all choices of coefficients
subject to our sign conditions. We give a decision procedure for the existence
of such solutions. In the positive case our procedure yields a parametric
positive solution as a rational function in the coefficients. Our framework
allows to reformulate heuristic subtropical approaches for non-parametric
systems of polynomial inequalities that have been recently used in qualitative
biological network analysis and, independently, in satisfiability modulo theory
solving. We apply our results to characterize the incompleteness of those
methods.

*An Approximation and Refinement Approach to First-Order Automated Reasoning*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. Retrieved from urn:nbn:de:bsz:291-scidok-ds-271963Abstract

With the goal of lifting model-based guidance from the propositional setting to first-
order logic, I have developed an approximation theorem proving approach based on
counterexample-guided abstraction refinement. A given clause set is transformed
into a simplified form where satisfiability is decidable. This approximation extends
the signature and preserves unsatisfiability: if the simplified clause set is satisfi-
able, so is the original clause set. A resolution refutation generated by a decision
procedure on the simplified clause set can then either be lifted to a refutation in
the original clause set, or it guides a refinement excluding the previously found
unliftable refutation. This way the approach is refutationally complete.
The monadic shallow linear Horn fragment, which is the initial target of the
approximation, is well-known to be decidable. It was a long standing open prob-
lem how to extend the fragment to the non-Horn case, preserving decidability, that
would, e.g., enable to express non-determinism in protocols. I have now proven de-
cidability of the non-Horn monadic shallow linear fragment via ordered resolution.
I further extend the clause language with a new type of constraints, called
straight dismatching constraints. The extended clause language is motivated by an
improved refinement of the approximation-refinement framework. All needed oper-
ations on straight dismatching constraints take linear or linear logarithmic time in
the size of the constraint. Ordered resolution with straight dismatching constraints
is sound and complete and the monadic shallow linear fragment with straight dis-
matching constraints is decidable.
I have implemented my approach based on the SPASS theorem prover. On cer-
tain satisfiable problems, the implementation shows the ability to beat established
provers such as SPASS, iProver, and Vampire.

%X With the goal of lifting model-based guidance from the propositional setting to first-
order logic, I have developed an approximation theorem proving approach based on
counterexample-guided abstraction refinement. A given clause set is transformed
into a simplified form where satisfiability is decidable. This approximation extends
the signature and preserves unsatisfiability: if the simplified clause set is satisfi-
able, so is the original clause set. A resolution refutation generated by a decision
procedure on the simplified clause set can then either be lifted to a refutation in
the original clause set, or it guides a refinement excluding the previously found
unliftable refutation. This way the approach is refutationally complete.
The monadic shallow linear Horn fragment, which is the initial target of the
approximation, is well-known to be decidable. It was a long standing open prob-
lem how to extend the fragment to the non-Horn case, preserving decidability, that
would, e.g., enable to express non-determinism in protocols. I have now proven de-
cidability of the non-Horn monadic shallow linear fragment via ordered resolution.
I further extend the clause language with a new type of constraints, called
straight dismatching constraints. The extended clause language is motivated by an
improved refinement of the approximation-refinement framework. All needed oper-
ations on straight dismatching constraints take linear or linear logarithmic time in
the size of the constraint. Ordered resolution with straight dismatching constraints
is sound and complete and the monadic shallow linear fragment with straight dis-
matching constraints is decidable.
I have implemented my approach based on the SPASS theorem prover. On cer-
tain satisfiable problems, the implementation shows the ability to beat established
provers such as SPASS, iProver, and Vampire.

Barbosa, H., Blanchette, J. C., Cruanes, S., El Ouraoui, D., & Fontaine, P. (2017). Language and Proofs for Higher-Order SMT (Work in Progress).

(arXiv: 1712.01486) *Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science*,*262*. doi:10.4204/EPTCS.262.3Abstract

Satisfiability modulo theories (SMT) solvers have throughout the years been
able to cope with increasingly expressive formulas, from ground logics to full
first-order logic modulo theories. Nevertheless, higher-order logic within SMT
is still little explored. One main goal of the Matryoshka project, which
started in March 2017, is to extend the reasoning capabilities of SMT solvers
and other automatic provers beyond first-order logic. In this preliminary
report, we report on an extension of the SMT-LIB language, the standard input
format of SMT solvers, to handle higher-order constructs. We also discuss how
to augment the proof format of the SMT solver veriT to accommodate these new
constructs and the solving techniques they require.

(arXiv: 1704.08997) Abstract

We consider the problem of determining multiple steady states for positive
real values in models of biological networks. Investigating the potential for
these in models of the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) network has
consumed considerable effort using special insights into the structure of
corresponding models. Here we apply combinations of symbolic computation
methods for mixed equality/inequality systems, specifically virtual
substitution, lazy real triangularization and cylindrical algebraic
decomposition. We determine multistationarity of an 11-dimensional MAPK network
when numeric values are known for all but potentially one parameter. More
precisely, our considered model has 11 equations in 11 variables and 19
parameters, 3 of which are of interest for symbolic treatment, and furthermore
positivity conditions on all variables and parameters.

(arXiv: 1706.08794) Abstract

We investigate models of the mitogenactivated protein kinases (MAPK) network,
with the aim of determining where in parameter space there exist multiple
positive steady states. We build on recent progress which combines various
symbolic computation methods for mixed systems of equalities and inequalities.
We demonstrate that those techniques benefit tremendously from a newly
implemented graph theoretical symbolic preprocessing method. We compare
computation times and quality of results of numerical continuation methods with
our symbolic approach before and after the application of our preprocessing.

(arXiv: 1706.09236) Abstract

Quantifier-free nonlinear arithmetic (QF_NRA) appears in many applications of
satisfiability modulo theories solving (SMT). Accordingly, efficient reasoning
for corresponding constraints in SMT theory solvers is highly relevant. We
propose a new incomplete but efficient and terminating method to identify
satisfiable instances. The method is derived from the subtropical method
recently introduced in the context of symbolic computation for computing real
zeros of single very large multivariate polynomials. Our method takes as input
conjunctions of strict polynomial inequalities, which represent more than 40%
of the QF_NRA section of the SMT-LIB library of benchmarks. The method takes an
abstraction of polynomials as exponent vectors over the natural numbers tagged
with the signs of the corresponding coefficients. It then uses, in turn, SMT to
solve linear problems over the reals to heuristically find suitable points that
translate back to satisfying points for the original problem. Systematic
experiments on the SMT-LIB demonstrate that our method is not a sufficiently
strong decision procedure by itself but a valuable heuristic to use within a
portfolio of techniques.

(arXiv: 1705.08792) Abstract

In general, first-order predicate logic extended with linear integer
arithmetic is undecidable. We show that the Bernays-Sch\"onfinkel-Ramsey
fragment ($\exists^* \forall^*$-sentences) extended with a restricted form of
linear integer arithmetic is decidable via finite ground instantiation. The
identified ground instances can be employed to restrict the search space of
existing automated reasoning procedures considerably, e.g., when reasoning
about quantified properties of array data structures formalized in Bradley,
Manna, and Sipma's array property fragment. Typically, decision procedures for
the array property fragment are based on an exhaustive instantiation of
universally quantified array indices with all the ground index terms that occur
in the formula at hand. Our results reveal that one can get along with
significantly fewer instances.

Horbach, M., Voigt, M., & Weidenbach, C. (2017c). The Universal Fragment of Presburger Arithmetic with Unary Uninterpreted Predicates is Undecidable. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1703.01212

(arXiv: 1703.01212) Abstract

The first-order theory of addition over the natural numbers, known as
Presburger arithmetic, is decidable in double exponential time. Adding an
uninterpreted unary predicate to the language leads to an undecidable theory.
We sharpen the known boundary between decidable and undecidable in that we show
that the purely universal fragment of the extended theory is already
undecidable. Our proof is based on a reduction of the halting problem for
two-counter machines to unsatisfiability of sentences in the extended language
of Presburger arithmetic that does not use existential quantification. On the
other hand, we argue that a single $\forall\exists$ quantifier alternation
turns the set of satisfiable sentences of the extended language into a
$\Sigma^1_1$-complete set. Some of the mentioned results can be transfered to
the realm of linear arithmetic over the ordered real numbers. This concerns the
undecidability of the purely universal fragment and the $\Sigma^1_1$-hardness
for sentences with at least one quantifier alternation. Finally, we discuss the
relevance of our results to verification. In particular, we derive
undecidability results for quantified fragments of separation logic, the theory
of arrays, and combinations of the theory of equality over uninterpreted
functions with restricted forms of integer arithmetic. In certain cases our
results even imply the absence of sound and complete deductive calculi.

*Logics for Rule-based Configuration Systems*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. Retrieved from urn:nbn:de:bsz:291-scidok-69639Abstract

Rule-based configuration systems are being successfully used in industry, such as DOPLER at Siemens. Those systems make complex domain knowledge available to users and let them derive valid, customized products out of large sets of components. However, maintenance of such systems remains a challenge. Formal models are a prerequisite for the use of automated methods of analysis. This thesis deals with the formalization of rule-based configuration. We develop two logics whose transition semantics are suited for expressing the way systems like DOPLER operate. This is due to the existence of two types of transitions, namely user and rule transitions, and a fixpoint mechanism that determines their dynamic relationship. The first logic, PIDL, models propositional systems, while the second logic, PIDL+, additionally considers arithmetic constraints. They allow the formulation and automated verification of relevant properties of rule- based configuration systems.

(arXiv: 1703.02837) Abstract

The monadic shallow linear Horn fragment is well-known to be decidable and
has many application, e.g., in security protocol analysis, tree automata, or
abstraction refinement. It was a long standing open problem how to extend the
fragment to the non-Horn case, preserving decidability, that would, e.g.,
enable to express non-determinism in protocols. We prove decidability of the
non-Horn monadic shallow linear fragment via ordered resolution further
extended with dismatching constraints and discuss some applications of the new
decidable fragment.

(arXiv: 1704.02145) Abstract

Recently, the separated fragment (SF) has been introduced and proved to be
decidable. Its defining principle is that universally and existentially
quantified variables may not occur together in atoms. The known upper bound on
the time required to decide SF's satisfiability problem is formulated in terms
of quantifier alternations: Given an SF sentence $\exists \vec{z} \forall
\vec{x}_1 \exists \vec{y}_1 \ldots \forall \vec{x}_n \exists \vec{y}_n . \psi$
in which $\psi$ is quantifier free, satisfiability can be decided in
nondeterministic $n$-fold exponential time. In the present paper, we conduct a
more fine-grained analysis of the complexity of SF-satisfiability. We derive an
upper and a lower bound in terms of the degree of interaction of existential
variables (short: degree)}---a novel measure of how many separate existential
quantifier blocks in a sentence are connected via joint occurrences of
variables in atoms. Our main result is the $k$-NEXPTIME-completeness of the
satisfiability problem for the set $SF_{\leq k}$ of all SF sentences that have
degree $k$ or smaller. Consequently, we show that SF-satisfiability is
non-elementary in general, since SF is defined without restrictions on the
degree. Beyond trivial lower bounds, nothing has been known about the hardness
of SF-satisfiability so far.

degree $k$ or smaller. Consequently, we show that SF-satisfiability is
non-elementary in general, since SF is defined without restrictions on the
degree. Beyond trivial lower bounds, nothing has been known about the hardness
of SF-satisfiability so far.

*Superposition: Types and Induction*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. Retrieved from urn:nbn:de:bsz:291-scidok-69522Abstract

Proof assistants are becoming widespread for formalization of theories both in computer science and mathematics. They provide rich logics with powerful type systems and machine-checked proofs which increase the confidence in the correctness in complicated and detailed proofs.
However, they incur a significant overhead compared to pen-and-paper proofs.
This thesis describes work on bridging the gap between high-order proof assistants and first-order automated theorem provers by extending the capabilities of the automated theorem provers to provide features usually found in proof assistants.
My first contribution is the development and implementation of a first-order superposition calculus with a polymorphic type system that supports type classes and the accompanying refutational completeness proof for that calculus. The inclusion of the type system into the superposition calculus and solvers completely removes the type encoding overhead when encoding problems from many proof assistants.
My second contribution is the development of SupInd, an extension of the typed superposition calculus that supports data types and structural induction over those data types. It includes heuristics that guide the induction and conjecture strengthening techniques, which can be applied independently of the underlying calculus.
I have implemented the contributions in a tool called Pirate. The evaluations of both contributions show promising results.

Symbolic Computation and Satisfiability Checking are viewed as individual
research areas, but they share common interests in the development,
implementation and application of decision procedures for arithmetic theories.
Despite these commonalities, the two communities are currently only weakly
connected. We introduce a new project SC-square to build a joint community in
this area, supported by a newly accepted EU (H2020-FETOPEN-CSA) project of the
same name. We aim to strengthen the connection between these communities by
creating common platforms, initiating interaction and exchange, identifying

*Verification of Linear Hybrid Systems with Large Discrete State Spaces: Exploring the Design Space for Optimization*(No. ATR103). SFB/TR 14 AVACS.Abstract

This paper provides a suite of optimization techniques for
the verification of safety properties of linear hybrid
automata with large discrete state spaces, such as
naturally arising when incorporating health state
monitoring and degradation levels into the controller
design. Such models can -- in contrast to purely functional
controller models -- not analyzed with hybrid verification
engines relying on explicit representations of modes, but
require fully symbolic representations for both the
continuous and discrete part of the state space. The
optimization techniques shown yield consistently a speedup
of about 20 against previously published results for a
similar benchmark suite, and complement these with new
results on counterexample guided abstraction refinement. In
combination with the methods guaranteeing preciseness of
abstractions, this allows to significantly extend the class
of models for which safety can be established, covering in
particular models with 23 continuous variables and 2 to the
71 discrete states, 20 continuous variables and 2 to the
199 discrete states, and 9 continuous variables and 2 to
the 271 discrete states.

*A Machine-checked Proof of Correctness of Pastry*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. Retrieved from urn:nbn:de:bsz:291-scidok-67309Abstract

A distributed hash table (DHT) is a peer-to-peer network that offers the function of a classic hash table, but where different key-value pairs are stored at different nodes on the network. Like a classic hash table, the main function provided by a DHT is key lookup, which retrieves the value stored at a given key.
Examples of DHT protocols include Chord, Pastry, Kademlia and Tapestry.
Such DHT protocols certain correctness and performance guarantees, but formal verification typically discovers border cases that violate those guarantees. In his PhD thesis, Tianxiang Lu reported correctness problems in published versions of Pastry and developed a model called LuPastry, for which he provided a partial proof of correct delivery of lookup messages assuming no node failure, mechanized in the TLA+ Proof System. In analyzing Lu's proof, I discovered that it contained unproven assumptions, and found counterexamples to several of these assumptions. The contribution of this thesis is threefold. First, I present LuPastry+, a revised TLA+ specification of LuPastry. Aside from needed bug fixes, LuPastry+ contains new definitions that make the specification more modular and significantly improve proof automation. Second, I present a complete TLA+ proof of correct delivery for LuPastry+. Third, I prove that the final step of the node join process of LuPastry/LuPastry+ is not necessary to achieve consistency. In particular, I develop a new specification with a simpler node join process, which I denote by Simplified LuPastry+, and prove correct delivery of lookup messages for this new specification. The proof of correctness of Simplified LuPastry+ is written by reusing the proof for LuPastry+, which represents a success story in proof reuse, especially for proofs of this size.
Each of the two proofs amounts to over 32,000 proof steps; to my knowledge, they are currently the largest proofs written in the TLA+ language, and---together with Lu's proof---the only examples of applying full theorem proving for the verification of DHT protocols

Like a classic hash table, the main function provided by a DHT is key lookup, which retrieves the value stored at a given key. Examples of DHT protocols include Chord, Pastry, Kademlia and Tapestry. Such DHT protocols certain correctness and performance guarantees, but formal verification typically discovers border cases that violate those guarantees. In his PhD thesis, Tianxiang Lu reported correctness problems in published versions of Pastry and developed a model called LuPastry, for which he provided a partial proof of correct delivery of lookup messages assuming no node failure, mechanized in the TLA+ Proof System. In analyzing Lu's proof, I discovered that it contained unproven assumptions, and found counterexamples to several of these assumptions. The contribution of this thesis is threefold. First, I present LuPastry+, a revised TLA+ specification of LuPastry. Aside from needed bug fixes, LuPastry+ contains new definitions that make the specification more modular and significantly improve proof automation. Second, I present a complete TLA+ proof of correct delivery for LuPastry+. Third, I prove that the final step of the node join process of LuPastry/LuPastry+ is not necessary to achieve consistency. In particular, I develop a new specification with a simpler node join process, which I denote by Simplified LuPastry+, and prove correct delivery of lookup messages for this new specification. The proof of correctness of Simplified LuPastry+ is written by reusing the proof for LuPastry+, which represents a success story in proof reuse, especially for proofs of this size. Each of the two proofs amounts to over 32,000 proof steps; to my knowledge, they are currently the largest proofs written in the TLA+ language, and---together with Lu's proof---the only examples of applying full theorem proving for the verification of DHT protocols},

Blanchette, J. C., Böhme, S., Popescu, A., & Smallbone, N. (2016). Encoding Monomorphic and Polymorphic Types. doi:10.2168/LMCS-2014-1018

(arXiv: 1609.08916) Abstract

Many automatic theorem provers are restricted to untyped logics, and existing
translations from typed logics are bulky or unsound. Recent research proposes
monotonicity as a means to remove some clutter when translating monomorphic to
untyped first-order logic. Here we pursue this approach systematically,
analysing formally a variety of encodings that further improve on efficiency
while retaining soundness and completeness. We extend the approach to rank-1
polymorphism and present alternative schemes that lighten the translation of
polymorphic symbols based on the novel notion of "cover". The new encodings are
implemented in Isabelle/HOL as part of the Sledgehammer tool. We include
informal proofs of soundness and correctness, and have formalised the
monomorphic part of this work in Isabelle/HOL. Our evaluation finds the new
encodings vastly superior to previous schemes.

Cruanes, S., & Blanchette, J. C. (2016). Extending Nunchaku to Dependent Type Theory. In

(arXiv: 1606.05945) *Proceedings First International Workshop on Hammers for Type Theories (HaTT 2016)*. Coimbra, Portugal. doi:10.4204/EPTCS.210.3Abstract

Nunchaku is a new higher-order counterexample generator based on a sequence
of transformations from polymorphic higher-order logic to first-order logic.
Unlike its predecessor Nitpick for Isabelle, it is designed as a stand-alone
tool, with frontends for various proof assistants. In this short paper, we
present some ideas to extend Nunchaku with partial support for dependent types
and type classes, to make frontends for Coq and other systems based on
dependent type theory more useful.

%X Nunchaku is a new higher-order counterexample generator based on a sequence
of transformations from polymorphic higher-order logic to first-order logic.
Unlike its predecessor Nitpick for Isabelle, it is designed as a stand-alone
tool, with frontends for various proof assistants. In this short paper, we
present some ideas to extend Nunchaku with partial support for dependent types
and type classes, to make frontends for Coq and other systems based on
dependent type theory more useful.

Košta, M., Sturm, T., & Dolzmann, A. (2016). Better Answers to Real Questions.

*Journal of Symbolic Computation*,*74*. doi:10.1016/j.jsc.2015.07.002Abstract

We consider existential problems over the reals. Extended quantifier
elimination generalizes the concept of regular quantifier elimination by
providing in addition answers, which are descriptions of possible assignments
for the quantified variables. Implementations of extended quantifier
elimination via virtual substitution have been successfully applied to various
problems in science and engineering. So far, the answers produced by these
implementations included infinitesimal and infinite numbers, which are hard to
interpret in practice. We introduce here a post-processing procedure to
convert, for fixed parameters, all answers into standard real numbers. The
relevance of our procedure is demonstrated by application of our implementation
to various examples from the literature, where it significantly improves the
quality of the results.

Sturm, T., Voigt, M., & Weidenbach, C. (2016a). Deciding First-Order Satisfiability when Universal and Existential Variables are Separated. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1511.08999

(arXiv: 1511.08999) Abstract

We introduce a new decidable fragment of first-order logic with equality,
which strictly generalizes two already well-known ones -- the
Bernays-Sch\"onfinkel-Ramsey (BSR) Fragment and the Monadic Fragment. The
defining principle is the syntactic separation of universally quantified
variables from existentially quantified ones at the level of atoms. Thus, our
classification neither rests on restrictions on quantifier prefixes (as in the
BSR case) nor on restrictions on the arity of predicate symbols (as in the
monadic case). We demonstrate that the new fragment exhibits the finite model
property and derive a non-elementary upper bound on the computing time required
for deciding satisfiability in the new fragment. For the subfragment of prenex
sentences with the quantifier prefix $\exists^* \forall^* \exists^*$ the
satisfiability problem is shown to be complete for NEXPTIME. Finally, we
discuss how automated reasoning procedures can take advantage of our results.

Alagi, G., & Weidenbach, C. (2015b). NRCL - A Model Building Approach to the Bernays-Schönfinkel Fragment. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1502.05501

(arXiv: 1502.05501) Abstract

We combine key ideas from first-order superposition and propositional CDCL to
create the new calculus NRCL deciding the Bernays-Sch\"onfinkel fragment. It
inherits the abstract redundancy criterion and the monotone model operator from
superposition. CDCL adds to NRCL the dynamic, conflict-driven search for an
atom ordering inducing a model. As a result, in NRCL a false clause can be
effectively found modulo the current model assumption. It guides the derivation
of a first-order ordered resolvent that is never redundant. Similar to
1UIP-learning in CDCL, the learned resolvent induces backtracking and via
propagation blocks the previous conflict state for the rest of the search.
Since learned clauses are never redundant, only finitely many can be generated
by NRCL on the Bernays-Sch\"onfinkel fragment, which provides a nice argument
for termination.

(arXiv: 1511.00180) Abstract

In this paper, we present an algorithm for computing a fundamental matrix of
formal solutions of completely integrable Pfaffian systems with normal
crossings in several variables. This algorithm is a generalization of a method
developed for the bivariate case based on a combination of several reduction
techniques and is implemented in the computer algebra system Maple.

Blanchette, J. C., Popescu, A., & Traytel, D. (2015a). Foundational Extensible Corecursion. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1501.05425

(arXiv: 1501.05425) Abstract

This paper presents a formalized framework for defining corecursive functions
safely in a total setting, based on corecursion up-to and relational
parametricity. The end product is a general corecursor that allows corecursive
(and even recursive) calls under well-behaved operations, including
constructors. Corecursive functions that are well behaved can be registered as
such, thereby increasing the corecursor's expressiveness. The metatheory is
formalized in the Isabelle proof assistant and forms the core of a prototype
tool. The corecursor is derived from first principles, without requiring new
axioms or extensions of the logic.

(arXiv: 1503.02948) Abstract

We consider feasibility of linear integer programs in the context of
verification systems such as SMT solvers or theorem provers. Although
satisfiability of linear integer programs is decidable, many state-of-the-art
solvers neglect termination in favor of efficiency. It is challenging to design
a solver that is both terminating and practically efficient. Recent work by
Jovanovic and de Moura constitutes an important step into this direction. Their
algorithm CUTSAT is sound, but does not terminate, in general. In this paper we
extend their CUTSAT algorithm by refined inference rules, a new type of
conflicting core, and a dedicated rule application strategy. This leads to our
algorithm CUTSAT++, which guarantees termination.

(arXiv: 1506.04566) Abstract

Some recent methods for lossy signal and image compression store only a few
selected pixels and fill in the missing structures by inpainting with a partial
differential equation (PDE). Suitable operators include the Laplacian, the
biharmonic operator, and edge-enhancing anisotropic diffusion (EED). The
quality of such approaches depends substantially on the selection of the data
that is kept. Optimising this data in the domain and codomain gives rise to
challenging mathematical problems that shall be addressed in our work.
In the 1D case, we prove results that provide insights into the difficulty of
this problem, and we give evidence that a splitting into spatial and tonal
(i.e. function value) optimisation does hardly deteriorate the results. In the
2D setting, we present generic algorithms that achieve a high reconstruction
quality even if the specified data is very sparse. To optimise the spatial
data, we use a probabilistic sparsification, followed by a nonlocal pixel
exchange that avoids getting trapped in bad local optima. After this spatial
optimisation we perform a tonal optimisation that modifies the function values
in order to reduce the global reconstruction error. For homogeneous diffusion
inpainting, this comes down to a least squares problem for which we prove that
it has a unique solution. We demonstrate that it can be found efficiently with
a gradient descent approach that is accelerated with fast explicit diffusion
(FED) cycles. Our framework allows to specify the desired density of the
inpainting mask a priori. Moreover, is more generic than other data
optimisation approaches for the sparse inpainting problem, since it can also be
extended to nonlinear inpainting operators such as EED. This is exploited to
achieve reconstructions with state-of-the-art quality.
We also give an extensive literature survey on PDE-based image compression
methods.

Košta, M., & Sturm, T. (2015). A Generalized Framework for Virtual Substitution. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1501.05826

(arXiv: 1501.05826) Abstract

We generalize the framework of virtual substitution for real quantifier
elimination to arbitrary but bounded degrees. We make explicit the
representation of test points in elimination sets using roots of parametric
univariate polynomials described by Thom codes. Our approach follows an early
suggestion by Weispfenning, which has never been carried out explicitly.
Inspired by virtual substitution for linear formulas, we show how to
systematically construct elimination sets containing only test points
representing lower bounds.

Košta, M., Sturm, T., & Dolzmann, A. (2015). Better Answers to Real Questions. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1501.05098

(arXiv: 1501.05098) Abstract

We consider existential problems over the reals. Extended quantifier
elimination generalizes the concept of regular quantifier elimination by
providing in addition answers, which are descriptions of possible assignments
for the quantified variables. Implementations of extended quantifier
elimination via virtual substitution have been successfully applied to various
problems in science and engineering. So far, the answers produced by these
implementations included infinitesimal and infinite numbers, which are hard to
interpret in practice. We introduce here a post-processing procedure to
convert, for fixed parameters, all answers into standard real numbers. The
relevance of our procedure is demonstrated by application of our implementation
to various examples from the literature, where it significantly improves the
quality of the results.

%X We consider existential problems over the reals. Extended quantifier
elimination generalizes the concept of regular quantifier elimination by
providing in addition answers, which are descriptions of possible assignments
for the quantified variables. Implementations of extended quantifier
elimination via virtual substitution have been successfully applied to various
problems in science and engineering. So far, the answers produced by these
implementations included infinitesimal and infinite numbers, which are hard to
interpret in practice. We introduce here a post-processing procedure to
convert, for fixed parameters, all answers into standard real numbers. The
relevance of our procedure is demonstrated by application of our implementation
to various examples from the literature, where it significantly improves the
quality of the results.

(arXiv: 1501.04836) Abstract

We describe a new incomplete but terminating method for real root finding for
large multivariate polynomials. We take an abstract view of the polynomial as
the set of exponent vectors associated with sign information on the
coefficients. Then we employ linear programming to heuristically find roots.
There is a specialized variant for roots with exclusively positive coordinates,
which is of considerable interest for applications in chemistry and systems
biology. An implementation of our method combining the computer algebra system
Reduce with the linear programming solver Gurobi has been successfully applied
to input data originating from established mathematical models used in these
areas. We have solved several hundred problems with up to more than 800000
monomials in up to 10 variables with degrees up to 12. Our method has failed
due to its incompleteness in less than 8 percent of the cases.

(arXiv: 1503.02971) Abstract

Counterexample-guided abstraction refinement is a well-established technique
in verification. In this paper we instantiate the idea for first-order logic
theorem proving. Given a clause set $N$ we propose its abstraction into a
clause set $N'$ belonging to a decidable first-order fragment. The abstraction
preserves satisfiability: if $N'$ is satisfiable, so is $N$. A refutation in
$N'$ can then either be lifted to a refutation in $N$, or it guides a
refinement of $N$ and its abstraction $N'$ excluding the previously found
refutation that is not liftable.

(arXiv: 1501.07209) Abstract

Linear arithmetic extended with free predicate symbols is undecidable, in
general. We show that the restriction of linear arithmetic inequations to
simple bounds extended with the Bernays-Sch\"onfinkel-Ramsey free first-order
fragment is decidable and NEXPTIME-complete. The result is almost tight because
the Bernays-Sch\"onfinkel-Ramsey fragment is undecidable in combination with
linear difference inequations, simple additive inequations, quotient
inequations and multiplicative inequations.

*Deduction and Arithmetic*. Presented at the Dagstuhl Seminar 13411 “Deduction and Arithmetic,” Wadern, Germany: Schloss Dagstuhl. doi:10.4230/DagRep.3.10.1Abstract

This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 13411 "Deduction and Arithmetic". The aim of this seminar was to bring together researchers working in deduction and fields related to arithmetic constraint solving. Current research in deduction can be categorized in three main strands: SMT solvers, automated first-order provers, and interactive provers. Although dealing with arithmetic has been in focus of all three for some years, there is still need of much better support of arithmetic. Reasong about arithmetic will stay at the center of attention in all three main approaches to automated deduction during the coming five to ten years. The seminar was an important event for the subcommunities involved that made it possible to communicate with each other so as to avoid duplicate effort and to exploit synergies. It succeeded also in identifying a number of important trends and open problems.

*Obtaining Finite Local Theory Axiomatizations via Saturation*(No. ATR93). SFB/TR 14 AVACS.Abstract

In this paper we study theory combinations over non-disjoint
signatures in which hierarchical and modular reasoning is
possible. We use a notion of locality of a theory extension
parameterized by a closure operator on ground terms.
We give criteria for recognizing these types of theory
extensions. We then show that combinations of extensions of
theories which are local in this extended sense have also a
locality property and hence allow modular and hierarchical
reasoning. We thus obtain parameterized decidability and
complexity results for many (combinations of) theories
important in verification.

*Computer Algebra in Scientific Computing (CASC 2014)*. Warsaw, Poland: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-10515-4_19Abstract

We consider satisfiability modulo theory-solving for linear real arithmetic. Inspired by related work for the Fourier–Motzkin method, we combine virtual substitution with learning strategies. For the first time, we present virtual substitution—including our learning strategies—as a formal calculus. We prove soundness and completeness for that calculus. Some standard linear programming benchmarks computed with an experimental implementation of our calculus show that the integration of learning techniques into virtual substitution gives rise to considerable speedups. Our implementation is open-source and freely available.

*Automated Deduction - CADE-24*. Lake Placid, NY, USA: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-38574-2_3Abstract

In this paper we study possibilities of using methods for
hierarchical reasoning in local theory extensions for the
analysis and verification of parametric hybrid systems,
where the parameters can be either constants or functions.
Our goal is to automatically provide guarantees that such
systems satisfy certain safety or invariance conditions.
We first analyze the possibility of automatically generating
such guarantees in the form of constraints on parameters,
then show that we can also synthesise so-called criticality
functions, typically used for proving stability and/or
safety of hybrid systems.
We illustrate our methods on several examples.

*Hierarchic Superposition with Weak Abstraction*(No. MPI-I-2014-RG1-002). Saarbrücken: Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik.Abstract

Many applications of automated deduction require reasoning in
first-order logic modulo background theories, in particular some
form of integer arithmetic. A major unsolved research challenge
is to design theorem provers that are "reasonably complete"
even in the presence of free function symbols ranging into a
background theory sort. The hierarchic superposition calculus
of Bachmair, Ganzinger, and Waldmann already supports such
symbols, but, as we demonstrate, not optimally. This paper aims
to rectify the situation by introducing a novel form of clause
abstraction, a core component in the hierarchic superposition
calculus for transforming clauses into a form needed for internal
operation. We argue for the benefits of the resulting calculus
and provide a new completeness result for the fragment where
all background-sorted terms are ground.

Dhungana, D., Tang, C. H., Weidenbach, C., & Wischnewski, P. (2013). Automated Verification of Interactive Rule-based Configuration Systems. In

*28th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2013)*. Palo Alto, CA, USA: IEEE. doi:10.1109/ASE.2013.6693112Abstract

Rule-based specifications of systems have again
become common in the context of product line variability modeling and
configuration systems. In this paper, we define a logical
foundation for rule-based specifications that has enough expressivity
and operational behavior to be
practically useful and at the same time enables decidability of
important overall properties such as consistency or cycle-freeness.
Our logic supports rule-based interactive user transitions as well as
the definition of a domain theory via rule transitions.
As a running example, we model DOPLER, a rule-based configuration system
currently in use at Siemens.

Fietzke, A. L., & Weidenbach, C. (2013). Superposition as a Decision Procedure for Timed Automata.

*Mathematics in Computer Science*,*6*(4). doi:10.1007/s11786-012-0134-5Abstract

The success of superposition-based theorem proving in first-order logic relies
in particular on the fact that the superposition calculus can be turned into a
decision procedure for various decidable fragments of first-order logic and has
been successfully used to identify new decidable classes. In this paper, we
extend this story to the hierarchic combination of linear arithmetic and
first-order superposition. We show that decidability of reachability in timed
automata can be obtained by instantiation of an abstract termination result for
SUP(LA), the hierarchic combination of linear arithmetic and first-order
superposition.

Horbach, M., & Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2013). Obtaining Finite Local Theory Axiomatizations via Saturation. In

*Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2013)*. Nancy, France: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-40885-4_14Abstract

In this paper we present a method for obtaining local sets of clauses from
possibly non-local ones. For this, we follow the work of Basin and Ganzinger
and use saturation under a version of ordered resolution. In order to address
the fact that saturation can generate infinite sets of clauses, we use
constrained clauses and show that a link can be established
between saturation and locality also for constrained clauses:
This often allows us to give a finite representation
of possibly infinite saturated sets of clauses.

Karrenberg, R., Košta, M., & Sturm, T. (2013). Presburger Arithmetic in Memory Access Optimization for Data-parallel Languages. In

*Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2013)*. Nancy, France: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-40885-4_5Abstract

Data-parallel languages like OpenCL and CUDA are an important means to exploit
the computational power of today's computing devices.
We consider the compilation of such languages for CPUs with SIMD instruction
sets.
To generate efficient code, one wants to statically decide whether or not
certain
memory operations access consecutive addresses.
We formalize the notion of consecutivity and algorithmically reduce the static
decision to satisfiability problems in Presburger Arithmetic.
We introduce a preprocessing technique on these SMT problems, which makes it
feasible to apply an off-the-shelf SMT solver.
We show that a prototypical OpenCL CPU driver based on our approach generates
more efficient code than any other state-of-the-art driver.

Lamotte-Schubert, M., & Weidenbach, C. (2013). BDI: A New Decidable First-order Clause Class. In

*LPAR-19, 19th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning*. Stellenbosch, South Africa: EasyChair. Retrieved from http://www.easychair.org/publications/?page=1079461175Abstract

BDI (Bounded Depth Increase) is a new decidable first-order clause class. It strictly includes known classes such as PVD. The arity of function and predicate symbols as well as the shape of atoms is not restricted in BDI. Instead the shape of "cycles" in resolution inferences is restricted such that the depth of generated clauses may increase but is still finitely bound. The BDI class is motivated by real world problems where function terms are used to represent record structures.
We show that the hyper-resolution calculus modulo redundancy elimination terminates on BDI clause sets. Employing this result to the ordered resolution calculus, we can also prove termination of ordered resolution on BDI, yielding a more efficient decision procedure.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2013a). Hierarchical Reasoning and Model Generation for the Verification of Parametric Hybrid Systems. In

*Automated Deduction - CADE-24*. Lake Placid, NY, USA: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-38574-2_25Abstract

In this paper we study possibilities of using methods for
hierarchical reasoning in local theory extensions for the
analysis and verification of parametric hybrid systems,
where the parameters can be either constants or functions.
Our goal is to automatically provide guarantees that such
systems satisfy certain safety or invariance conditions.
We first analyze the possibility of automatically generating
such guarantees in the form of constraints on parameters,
then show that we can also synthesise so-called criticality
functions, typically used for proving stability and/or
safety of hybrid systems.
We illustrate our methods on several examples.

We first analyze the possibility of automatically generating
such guarantees in the form of constraints on parameters,
then show that we can also synthesise so-called criticality
functions, typically used for proving stability and/or
safety of hybrid systems.
We illustrate our methods on several examples.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2013b). Locality and Applications to Subsumption Testing in EL and Some of its Extensions.

*Scientific Annals of Computer Science*,*23*(2). doi:10.7561/SACS.2013.2.251Abstract

In this paper we show that subsumption problems in the description logics EL and EL+ can be expressed as uniform word problems in classes of semilattices with monotone operators. We use possibilities of efficient local reasoning in such classes of algebras, to obtain uniform PTIME decision procedures for TBox and CBox subsumption in EL and EL+. These locality considerations allow us to present a new family of (possibly many-sorted) logics which extend EL and EL+ with n-ary roles and/or numerical domains.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2013c). On Combinations of Local Theory Extensions. In

*Programming Logics*. Berlin: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-37651-1_16Abstract

Many problems in mathematics and computer science can be
reduced to proving the satisfiability of conjunctions of
literals in a background theory which is often the extension
of a base theory with additional functions or a combination
of theories.
It is therefore important to have efficient procedures for
checking satisfiability of conjunctions of ground literals
in extensions and combinations of theories.
For a special type of theory extensions, namely \em local
extensions, hierarchic reasoning, in which a theorem prover
for the base theory can be used as a ``black box'',
is possible. Many theories used in computer science or
mathematics are local extensions of a base theory.
However, often it is necessary to consider complex extensions
of a theory, with various types of functions.
In this paper we identify situations in which
a combination of local extensions of a base theory
is guaranteed to be again a local extension of the base theory.
We thus obtain criteria both for recognizing wider classes of
local theory extensions, and for modular reasoning in
combinations of theories over non-disjoint signatures.

Suda, M. (2013a). Triggered Clause Pushing for IC3. Retrieved from http://arxiv.org/abs/1307.4966

(arXiv: 1307.4966) Abstract

We propose an improvement of the famous IC3 algorithm for model checking
safety properties of finite state systems. We collect models computed by the
SAT-solver during the clause propagation phase of the algorithm and use them as
witnesses for why the respective clauses could not be pushed forward. It only
makes sense to recheck a particular clause for pushing when its witnessing
model falsifies a newly added clause. Since this trigger test is both
computationally cheap and sufficiently precise, we can afford to keep clauses
pushed as far as possible at all times. Experiments indicate that this strategy
considerably improves IC3's performance.

*Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning (LPAR 2012)*. Mérida, Venezuela: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-28717-6_17Abstract

The hierarchic combination of linear arithmetic and firstorder
logic with free function symbols, FOL(LA), results in a strictly
more expressive logic than its two parts. The SUP(LA) calculus can be
turned into a decision procedure for interesting fragments of FOL(LA).
For example, reachability problems for timed automata can be decided
by SUP(LA) using an appropriate translation into FOL(LA). In this paper,
we extend the SUP(LA) calculus with an additional inference rule,
automatically generating inductive invariants from partial SUP(LA)
derivations. The rule enables decidability of more expressive fragments,
including reachability for timed automata with unbounded integer variables.
We have implemented the rule in the SPASS(LA) theorem prover
with promising results, showing that it can considerably speed up proof
search and enable termination of saturation for practically relevant
problems.

*Automatic Generation of Invariants for Circular Derivations in SUP(LA) 1*(No. MPI-I-2012-RG1-002). Saarbrücken: Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik.Abstract

The hierarchic combination of linear arithmetic and firstorder
logic with free function symbols, FOL(LA), results in a strictly
more expressive logic than its two parts. The SUP(LA) calculus can be
turned into a decision procedure for interesting fragments of FOL(LA).
For example, reachability problems for timed automata can be decided
by SUP(LA) using an appropriate translation into FOL(LA). In this paper,
we extend the SUP(LA) calculus with an additional inference rule,
automatically generating inductive invariants from partial SUP(LA)
derivations. The rule enables decidability of more expressive fragments,
including reachability for timed automata with unbounded integer variables.
We have implemented the rule in the SPASS(LA) theorem prover
with promising results, showing that it can considerably speed up proof
search and enable termination of saturation for practically relevant
problems.

Kruglov, E., & Weidenbach, C. (2012). Superposition Decides the First-order Logic Fragment Over Ground Theories.

*Mathematics in Computer Science*,*6*(4). doi:10.1007/s11786-012-0135-4Abstract

The hierarchic superposition calculus over a theory T, called SUP(T), enables
sound reasoning on the hierarchic combination
of a theory T with full first-order logic, FOL(T). If a FOL(T) clause set
enjoys a sufficient completeness criterion,
the calculus is even complete. Clause sets over the ground fragment of FOL(T)
are not sufficiently complete, in general.
In this paper we show that any clause set over the ground FOL(T) fragment can
be transformed into a sufficiently complete one,
and prove that SUP(T) terminates on the transformed clause set, hence
constitutes a decision procedure provided the
existential fragment of the theory T is decidable. Thanks to the hierarchic
design of SUP(T), the decidability result
can be extended beyond the ground case. We show SUP(T) is a decision procedure
for the non-ground FOL fragment
plus a theory T, if every non-constant function symbol from the underlying FOL
signature ranges into the sort of the theory T,
and every term of the theory sort is ground. Examples for T are in particular
decidable fragments of arithmetic.

Suda, M., & Weidenbach, C. (2012a). A PLTL-Prover Based on Labelled Superposition with Partial Model Guidance. In

*Automated Reasoning (IJCAR 2012)*. Manchester, UK: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-31365-3_42Abstract

Labelled superposition (LPSup) is a new calculus for PLTL. One of its
distinguishing features, in comparison to other resolution-based approaches, is
its ability to construct partial models on the fly. We use this feature to
design a new decision procedure for the logic, where the models are effectively
used to guide the search. On a representative set of benchmarks, our
implementation is then shown to considerably advance the state of the art.

*Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning (LPAR 2012)*. Mérida, Venezuela: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-28717-6_31Abstract

This paper introduces a new decision procedure for PLTL based on labelled
superposition.
Its main idea is to treat temporal formulas as infinite sets of purely
propositional clauses over an extended signature. These infinite sets are then
represented by finite sets of labelled propositional clauses. The new
representation enables the replacement of the complex temporal resolution
rule, suggested by existing resolution calculi for PLTL, by a fine grained
repetition check of finitely saturated labelled clause sets followed by a
simple inference. The completeness argument is based on the standard model
building idea from superposition. It inherently justifies ordering
restrictions, redundancy elimination and effective partial model building. The
latter can be directly used to effectively generate counterexamples of
non-valid PLTL conjectures out of saturated labelled clause sets in a
straightforward way.

advantageous features of these two rather complementary calculi in a single

propositional DPLL procedure, contributes a non-ground splitting rule that

subclauses. In the paper we present the calculus in detail. Our main result is
its completeness under semantically justified redundancy criteria and
simplification rules. We also show how under certain assumptions the model
representation computed by a (finite and fair) derivation can be queried in an

Burel, G. (2011). Efficiently Simulating Higher-Order Arithmetic by a First-Order Theory Modulo.

*Logical Methods in Computer Science*,*7*(1). doi:10.2168/LMCS-7 (1:3) 2011Abstract

In deduction modulo, a theory is not represented by a set of axioms but by a
congruence on propositions modulo which the inference rules of standard
deductive systems---such as for instance natural deduction---are applied.
Therefore, the reasoning that is intrinsic of the theory does not appear in the
length of proofs. In general, the congruence is defined through a rewrite
system over terms and propositions. We define a rigorous framework to study
proof lengths in deduction modulo, where the congruence must be computed in
polynomial time. We show that even very simple rewrite systems lead to
arbitrary proof-length speed-ups in deduction modulo, compared to using axioms.
As higher-order logic can be encoded as a first-order theory in deduction
modulo, we also study how to reinterpret, thanks to deduction modulo, the
speed-ups between higher-order and first-order arithmetics that were stated by
G\"odel. We define a first-order rewrite system with a congruence decidable in
polynomial time such that proofs of higher-order arithmetic can be linearly
translated into first-order arithmetic modulo that system. We also present the
whole higher-order arithmetic as a first-order system without resorting to any
axiom, where proofs have the same length as in the axiomatic presentation.

*HSCC’11 : Proceedings of the 2011 ACM/SIGBED Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control*. ACM. doi:10.1145/1967701.1967714Abstract

We study linear hybrid automata with dynamics of the form
$\sum a_i x_i \leq a$ and $\sum b_i {\dot x_i} \leq b$.
We show that verification of safety properties for reasonable
classes of such systems can be reduced to invariant checking
and bounded model checking and, ultimately, to checking the
validity of certain formulae (obtained using a polynomial
reduction).
We show that the problem of checking the validity of the formulae
obtained this way is typically in NP, and identify verification
tasks which can be performed in PTIME.
These reductions can also be used for parametric systems, both
for checking safety properties given constraints on parameters,
and for deriving constraints of parameters that guarantee that
safety properties hold.

*PTIME Parametric Verification of Safety Properties for Reasonable Linear Hybrid Automata*(No. ATR70). SFB/TR 14 AVACS.Abstract

This paper identifies an industrially relevant class of
linear hybrid automata (LHA) called reasonable LHA for
which parametric verification of convex safety properties
with exhaustive entry states can be verified in polynomial
time and time-bounded reachability can be decided
in nondeterministic polynomial time for non-parametric
verification and in exponential time for
parametric verification. Properties with exhaustive entry
states are restricted to runs originating in
a (specified) inner envelope of some mode-invariant.
Deciding whether an LHA is reasonable is
shown to be decidable in polynomial time.

Eggers, A., Kruglov, E., Kupferschmid, S., Scheibler, K., Teige, T., & Weidenbach, C. (2011). Superposition Modulo Non-linear Arithmetic. In

*Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2011)*. Saarbruecken, Germany: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-24364-6_9Abstract

The first-order theory over non-linear arithmetic
including transcendental functions (NLA) is undecidable.
Nevertheless, in this paper we show that a particular combination
with superposition leads to a sound and complete calculus that
is useful in practice. We follow basically the ideas
of the SUP(LA) combination, but have to take care
of undecidability, resulting in ``unknown'' answers by
the NLA reasoning procedure. A pipeline
of NLA constraint simplification techniques related to
the SUP(NLA) framework significantly decreases the number of ``unknown''
answers.
The resulting approach is implemented as SUP(NLA) by a system combination
of SPASS and iSAT. Applied to various scenarios
of traffic collision avoidance protocols, we show by experiments
that SPASS(iSAT) can fully automatically proof and disproof safety
properties of such protocols using the very same formalization.

%X The first-order theory over non-linear arithmetic
including transcendental functions (NLA) is undecidable.
Nevertheless, in this paper we show that a particular combination
with superposition leads to a sound and complete calculus that
is useful in practice. We follow basically the ideas
of the SUP(LA) combination, but have to take care
of undecidability, resulting in ``unknown'' answers by
the NLA reasoning procedure. A pipeline
of NLA constraint simplification techniques related to
the SUP(NLA) framework significantly decreases the number of ``unknown''
answers.
The resulting approach is implemented as SUP(NLA) by a system combination
of SPASS and iSAT. Applied to various scenarios
of traffic collision avoidance protocols, we show by experiments
that SPASS(iSAT) can fully automatically proof and disproof safety
properties of such protocols using the very same formalization.

*Proceedings of the 2011 International Workshop on Description Logics (DL-2011)*. CEUR Workshop Proceedings. Retrieved from http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-745/paper_50.pdfAbstract

We study possibilities of combining (fragments) of the lightweight description
logics ${\cal F}{\cal L}_0$ and
${\cal E}{\cal L}$, and identify classes of subsumption
problems in a combination of ${\cal E}{\cal L}$ and
Horn-${\cal F}{\cal L}_0$, which can be
checked in PSPACE resp. PTIME.
Since ${\cal F}{\cal L}_0$ allows universal role restrictions
and ${\cal E}{\cal L}$ allows existential role restrictions,
we thus have a framework where subsumption between
expressions including both types
of role restrictions (but for disjoint sets of roles) can be checked in
polynomial
space or time.

Lasaruk, A., & Sturm, T. (2011). Automatic Verification of the Adequacy of Models for Families of Geometric Objects. In

*Automated Deduction in Geometry (ADG 2008)*. Shanghai, China: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-21046-4_6Abstract

We consider parametric families of semi-algebraic geometric objects, each
implicitly defined by a first-order formula. Given an unambiguous description
of such an object family and an intended alternative description we
automatically construct a first-order formula which is true if and only if our
alternative description uniquely describes geometric objects of the reference
description. We can decide this formula by applying real quantifier
elimination. In the positive case we furthermore derive the defining
first-order formulas corresponding to our new description. In the negative case
we can produce sample points establishing a counterexample for the uniqueness.
We demonstrate our method by automatically proving uniqueness theorems for
characterizations of several geometric primitives and simple complex objects.
Finally, we focus on tori, characterizations of which can be applied in spline
approximation theory with toric segments. Although we cannot yet practically
solve the fundamental open questions in this area within reasonable time and
space, we demonstrate that they can be formulated in our framework. In addition
this points at an interesting and practically relevant challenge problem for
automated deduction in geometry in general.

*Towards Verification of the Pastry Protocol using TLA+*(No. MPI-I-2011-RG1-002). Saarbrücken: Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik. Retrieved from http://domino.mpi-inf.mpg.de/internet/reports.nsf/NumberView/2011-RG1-002Abstract

Pastry is an algorithm that provides a scalable distributed hash table over
an underlying P2P network. Several implementations of Pastry are available
and have been applied in practice, but no attempt has so far been made to
formally describe the algorithm or to verify its properties. Since Pastry combines
rather complex data structures, asynchronous communication, concurrency,
resilience to churn and fault tolerance, it makes an interesting target
for verication. We have modeled Pastry's core routing algorithms and communication
protocol in the specication language TLA+. In order to validate
the model and to search for bugs we employed the TLA+ model checker tlc
to analyze several qualitative properties. We obtained non-trivial insights in
the behavior of Pastry through the model checking analysis. Furthermore,
we started to verify Pastry using the very same model and the interactive
theorem prover tlaps for TLA+. A rst result is the reduction of global
Pastry correctness properties to invariants of the underlying data structures.

*ISSAC 2011*. San Jose, CA: ACM. doi:10.1145/1993886.1993935Abstract

We present the application of real quantifier elimination to formal
verification and synthesis of continuous and switched dynamical systems.
Through a series of case studies, we show how first-order formulas over the
reals arise when formally analyzing models of complex control systems. Existing
off-the-shelf quantifier elimination procedures are not successful in
eliminating quantifiers from many of our benchmarks. We therefore automatically
combine three established software components: virtual subtitution based
quantifier elimination in Reduce/Redlog, cylindrical algebraic decomposition
implemented in Qepcad, and the simplifier Slfq implemented on top of Qepcad. We
use this combination to successfully analyze various models of systems
including adaptive cruise control in automobiles, adaptive flight control
system, and the classical inverted pendulum problem studied in control theory.

Weber, A., Sturm, T., & Abdel-Rahman, E. O. (2011). Algorithmic Global Criteria for Excluding Oscillations.

*Bulletin of Mathematical Biology*,*73*(4). doi:10.1007/s11538-010-9618-0Abstract

We investigate algorithmic methods to tackle the following problem: Given a
system of parametric ordinary differential equations built by a biological
model, does there exist ranges of values for the model parameters and variables
which are both meaningful from a biological point of view and where oscillating
trajectories, can be found? We show that in the common case of polynomial
vector fields known criteria excluding the existence of non-constant limit
cycles lead to quantifier elimination problems over the reals. We apply these
criteria to various models that have been previously investigated in the
context of algebraic biology.

Burel, G. (2010). Embedding Deduction Modulo into a Prover. In

*Computer Science Logic (CSL 2010)*. Brno, Czech Republic: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-15205-4Abstract

Deduction modulo consists in presenting a theory through rewrite
rules to support automatic and interactive proof search. It induces
proof search methods based on narrowing, such as the polarized
resolution modulo. We show how to combine this method with more
traditional ordering restrictions. Interestingly, no compatibility
between the rewriting and the ordering is requested to ensure
completeness. We also show that some simplification rules, such as
strict subsumption eliminations and demodulations, preserve
completeness. For this purpose, we use a new framework based on a
proof ordering. These results show that polarized resolution modulo
can be integrated into existing provers, where these restrictions
and simplifications are present. We also discuss how this
integration can actually be done by diverting the main algorithm of
state-of-the-art provers.

Faber, J., Ihlemann, C., Jacobs, S., & Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2010a). Automatic Verification of Parametric Specifications with Complex Topologies. In

*Integrated Formal Methods (IFM 2010)*. Nancy, France: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-16265-7_12Abstract

The focus of this paper is on reducing the complexity in
verification by exploiting modularity at various levels:
in specification, in verification, and structurally.
\begin{itemize}
\item For specifications, we use the modular language CSP-OZ-DC,
which allows us to decouple verification tasks concerning
data from those concerning durations.
\item At the verification level, we exploit modularity in
theorem proving for rich data structures and use this for
invariant checking.
\item At the structural level, we analyze possibilities
for modular verification of systems consisting of various
components which interact.
\end{itemize}
We illustrate these ideas by automatically verifying safety
properties of a case study from the European Train Control
System standard, which extends previous examples by comprising a
complex track topology with lists of track segments and trains
with different routes.

Fietzke, A., Hermanns, H., & Weidenbach, C. (2010). Superposition-Based Analysis of First-Order Probabilistic Timed Automata. In

*Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning (LPAR 2010)*. Yogyakarta, Indonesia: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-16242-8Abstract

This paper discusses the analysis of first-order probabilistic
timed automata (FPTA) by a combination of hierarchic first-order
superposition-based theorem proving and probabilistic model checking.
We develop the overall semantics of FPTAs and prove soundness and
completeness of our method for reachability properties. Basically, we decompose
FPTAs into their time plus first-order logic aspects on the one
hand, and their probabilistic aspects on the other hand. Then we exploit
the time plus first-order behavior by hierarchic superposition over
linear arithmetic. The result of this analysis is the basis for the construction
of a reachability equivalent (to the original FPTA) probabilistic
timed automaton to which probabilistic model checking is finally applied.
The hierarchic superposition calculus required for the analysis is
sound and complete on the first-order formulas generated from FPTAs.
It even works well in practice. We illustrate the potential behind it with
a real-life DHCP protocol example, which we analyze by means of tool
chain support.

*Saturation-based Decision Procedures for Fixed Domain and Minimal Model Semantics*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. Retrieved from urn:nbn:de:bsz:291-scidok-32826Abstract

Superposition is an established decision procedure for a variety of first-order
logic theories represented by sets of clauses. A satisfiable theory, saturated
by superposition, implicitly defines a minimal Herbrand model for the theory.
This raises the question in how far superposition calculi can be employed for
reasoning about such minimal models. This is indeed often possible when
existential properties are considered. However, proving universal properties
directly leads to a modification of the minimal model's term-generated domain,
as new Skolem functions are introduced. For many applications, this is not
desired because it changes the problem.
In this thesis, I propose the first superposition calculus that can explicitly
represent existentially quantified variables and can thus compute with respect
to a given fixed domain. It does not eliminate existential variables by
Skolemization, but handles them using additional constraints with which each
clause is annotated. This calculus is sound and refutationally complete in the
limit for a fixed domain semantics. For saturated Horn theories and classes of
positive formulas, the calculus is even complete for proving properties of the
minimal model itself, going beyond the scope of known superposition-based
approaches.
The calculus is applicable to every set of clauses with equality and does not
rely on any syntactic restrictions of the input. Extensions of the calculus
lead to various new decision procedures for minimal model validity. A main
feature of these decision procedures is that even the validity of queries
containing one quantifier alternation can be decided. In particular, I prove
that the validity of any formula with at most one quantifier alternation is
decidable in models represented by a finite set of atoms and that the validity
of several classes of such formulas is decidable in models represented by
so-called disjunctions of implicit generalizations. Moreover, I show that the
decision of minimal model validity can be reduced to the superposition-based
decision of first-order validity for models of a class of predicative Horn
clauses where all function symbols are at most unary.

Horbach, M., & Weidenbach, C. (2010). Superposition for Fixed Domains.

*ACM Transactions on Computational Logic*,*11*(4). doi:10.1145/1805950.1805957Abstract

Disunification is an extension of unification to first-order formulae over
syntactic equality atoms. Instead of considering only syntactic equality, I
extend a disunification algorithm by Comon and Delor to ultimately periodic
interpretations, i.e.~minimal many-sorted Herbrand models of predicative Horn
clauses and, for some sorts, equations of the form $s^\upmb(x)\eq s^\upma(x)$.
The extended algorithm is terminating and correct for ultimately periodic
interpretations over a finite signature and gives rise to a decision procedure
for the satisfiability of equational formulae in ultimately periodic
interpretations.
As an application, I show how to apply disunification to compute the completion
of predicates with respect to an ultimately periodic interpretation. Such
completions are a key ingredient to several inductionless induction methods.

*Automated Reasoning (IJCAR 2010)*. Edinburgh, UK: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-14203-1_4Abstract

In this paper we study theory combinations over non-disjoint
signatures in which hierarchical and modular reasoning is
possible. We use a notion of locality of a theory extension
parameterized by a closure operator on ground terms.
We give criteria for recognizing these types of theory
extensions. We then show that combinations of extensions of
theories which are local in this extended sense also have a
locality property and hence allow modular and hierarchical
reasoning. We thus obtain parameterized decidability and
complexity results for many (combinations of) theories
important in verification.

*Reasoning in Combinations of Theories*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. Retrieved from http://scidok.sulb.uni-saarland.de/volltexte/2010/3472/Abstract

Verification problems are often expressed in a language which mixes several
theories.
A natural question to ask is whether one can use decision procedures for
individual theories to construct a decision procedure for the union theory.
In the cases where this is possible one has a powerful method at hand to handle
complex theories effectively.
The setup considered in this thesis is that of one base theory which is
extended by one or more theories.
The question is if and when a given ground satisfiability problem in the
extended setting can be
effectively reduced to an equi-satisfiable
problem
over the base theory. A case where this reductive approach is always possible
is that of so-called \emph{local theory extensions.}
The theory of local extensions is developed and some applications concerning
monotone functions are given.
Then the theory of local theory extensions is generalized in order to deal with
data structures that
exhibit local behavior.
It will be shown that a suitable fragment of both the theory of arrays and the
theory of pointers
is local in this broader sense.
%
Finally, the case of more than one theory extension is discussed.
In particular, a \emph{modularity} result is given that under certain
circumstances the locality of each of the extensions
lifts to locality of the entire extension.
The reductive approach outlined above has become particularly relevant
in recent years due to the rise of powerful solvers for background
theories common in verification tasks. These so-called SMT-solvers
effectively handle theories such as real linear or integer arithmetic.
As part of this thesis, a program called \emph{\mbox{H-PILoT}} was
implemented which carries out reductive reasoning for local theory
extensions. H-PILoT found applications in mathematics, multiple-valued
logics, data-structures and reasoning in complex systems.

*System Description: H-PILoT (Version 1.9)*(No. ATR61). SFB/TR 14 AVACS.Abstract

This system description provides an overview of H-PILoT
(Hierarchical Proving by Instantiation in Local Theory
extensions), a program for hierarchical reasoning in
extensions of logical theories.
H-PILoT reduces deduction problems in the theory extension
to deduction problems in the base theory.
Specialized provers and standard SMT solvers can be used
for testing the satisfiability of the formulae obtained
after the reduction. For a certain type of theory extension
(namely for {\em local theory extensions}) this
hierarchical reduction is sound and complete and --
if the formulae obtained this way belong to a fragment
decidable in the base theory -- H-PILoT provides a decision
procedure for testing satisfiability of ground formulae,
and can also be used for model generation.

%X This system description provides an overview of H-PILoT
(Hierarchical Proving by Instantiation in Local Theory
extensions), a program for hierarchical reasoning in
extensions of logical theories.
H-PILoT reduces deduction problems in the theory extension
to deduction problems in the base theory.
Specialized provers and standard SMT solvers can be used
for testing the satisfiability of the formulae obtained
after the reduction. For a certain type of theory extension
(namely for {\em local theory extensions}) this
hierarchical reduction is sound and complete and --
if the formulae obtained this way belong to a fragment
decidable in the base theory -- H-PILoT provides a decision
procedure for testing satisfiability of ground formulae,
and can also be used for model generation.

Lu, T., Merz, S., & Weidenbach, C. (2010). Model Checking the Pastry Routing Protocol. In

*Proceedings of the 10th International Workshop Automatic Verification of Critical Systems (AVOCS 2010)*. Düsseldorf, Germany: Universität Düsseldorf.Abstract

Pastry is an algorithm for implementing a scalable distributed hash table over
an underlying P2P network, an active area of research in distributed systems.
Several implementations of Pastry are available and have been applied in
practice, but no attempt has so far been made to formally describe the
algorithm or to verify its properties. Since Pastry combines rather complex
data structures, asynchronous communication, concurrency, resilience to
\emph{churn} and fault tolerance, it makes an interesting target for
verification. We have modeled Pastry's core routing algorithms in the
specification language \texorpdfstring{\textrm{\upshape
TLA\textsuperscript{+}}}{TLA+} and used its model checker \textsc{tlc} to
analyze qualitative properties of Pastry such as \emph{correctness} and
\emph{consistency}.

Rybalchenko, A., & Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2010). Constraint Solving for Interpolation.

*Journal of Symbolic Computation*,*45*(11). doi:101016/j.jsc.2010.06.005Abstract

Interpolation is an important component of recent methods for
program verification. It provides a natural and effective means
for computing the separation between the sets of ‘good’ and
‘bad’ states. The existing algorithms for interpolant generation
are proof-based: They require explicit construction of proofs,
from which interpolants can be computed. Construction of such
proofs is a difficult task. We propose an algorithm for the
generation of interpolants for the combined theory of linear
arithmetic and uninterpreted function symbols that does not
require a priori constructed proofs to derive interpolants. It
uses a reduction of the problem to constraint solving in linear
arithmetic, which allows application of existing highly
optimized Linear Programming solvers in a black-box fashion.
We provide experimental evidence of the practical applicability
of our algorithm.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2010a). Automated Reasoning in Extensions of Theories of Constructors with Recursively Defined Functions and Homomorphisms. In

*Interaction versus Automation : the two Faces of Deduction*. Schloss Dagstuhl, Wadern: Schloss Dagstuhl. Retrieved from http://drops.dagstuhl.de/opus/volltexte/2010/2424/pdf/09411.SofronieStokkermansViorica.Paper.2424.pdfAbstract

We study possibilities of reasoning about extensions of base
theories with functions which satisfy certain recursion and
homomorphism properties. Our focus is on emphasizing
possibilities of hierarchical and modular reasoning in such
extensions and combinations thereof.
\begin{itemize}
\item[(1)] We show that the theory of absolutely free
constructors is local, and locality is preserved also in the
presence of selectors. These results are consistent with
existing decision procedures for this theory (e.g. by Oppen).
\item[(2)] We show that, under certain assumptions, extensions
of the theory of absolutely free constructors with functions
satisfying a certain type of recursion axioms satisfy locality
properties, and show that for functions with values in an
ordered domain we can combine recursive definitions with
boundedness axioms without sacrificing locality. We also address
the problem of only considering models whose data part is
the {em initial} term algebra of such theories.
\item[(3)] We analyze conditions which ensure that similar
results can be obtained if we relax some assumptions about the
absolute freeness of the underlying theory of data types, and
illustrate the ideas on an example from cryptography.
\end{itemize}
The locality results we establish allow us to reduce the task of
reasoning about the class of recursive functions we consider to
reasoning in the underlying theory of data structures (possibly
combined with the theories associated with the co-domains of
the recursive functions).
As a by-product, the methods we use provide a possibility of
presenting in a different light (and in a different form)
locality phenomena studied in cryp-to-gra-phy; we believe that
they will allow to better separate rewriting from proving, and
thus to give simpler proofs.

We study certain classes of verification problems for parametric

theories which can be used for modeling such systems and the
reasoning tasks which need to be solved in this context.
We identify properties of the underlying theories which ensure

*Automated Reasoning (IJCAR 2010)*. Edinburgh, UK: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-14203-1_38Abstract

YAGO is an automatically generated ontology out of Wikipedia
and WordNet. It is eventually represented in a proprietary
flat text file format and a core comprises 10 million facts
and formulas. We present a translation of YAGO into the
Bernays-Sch¨onfinkel Horn class with equality. A new
variant of the superposition calculus is sound, complete
and terminating for this class. Together with extended term
indexing data structures the new calculus is implemented in
Spass-YAGO. YAGO can be finitely saturated by Spass-YAGO in
about 1 hour.We have found 49 inconsistencies in the original
generated ontology which we have fixed. Spass-YAGO can then
prove non-trivial conjectures with respect to the resulting
saturated and consistent clause set of about 1.4 GB in less
than one second.

Tran, D.-K., Ringeissen, C., Ranise, S., & Kirchner, H. (2010). Combinations of Convex Theories: Modularity, Deduction Completeness and Explanation.

*Journal of Symbolic Computation*,*45*(2). doi:doi:10.1016/j.jsc.2008.10.006Abstract

Decision procedures are key components of theorem provers and
constraint satisfaction systems. Their modular combination is of
prime interest for building efficient systems, but their effective
use is often limited by poor interface capabilities, when such
procedures only provide a simple ``sat/unsat'' answer. In this
paper, we develop a framework to design cooperation schemas between
such procedures while maintaining modularity of their
interfaces. First, we use the framework to specify and prove the
correctness of classic combination schemas by Nelson-Oppen and
Shostak. Second, we introduce the concept of deduction complete
satisfiability procedures, we show how to build them for large
classes of theories, then we provide a schema to modularly
combine them. Third, we consider the problem of modularly
constructing explanations for combinations by re-using available
proof-producing procedures for the component theories.

*Automated Deduction, CADE-22, 22nd International Conference on Automated Deduction*. Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-02959-2_2Abstract

We present a new calculus for first-order theorem proving with equality,
ME+Sup, which generalizes both the Superposition calculus and the Model
Evolution calculus (with equality) by integrating their inference rules and
redundancy criteria in a non-trivial way. The main motivation is to combine the
advantageous features of both---rather complementary---calculi in a single
framework. For instance, Model Evolution, as a lifted version of the
propositional DPLL procedure, contributes a non-ground splitting rule that
effectively permits to split a clause into non variable disjoint subclauses. In
the paper we present the calculus in detail. Our main result is its
completeness under semantically justified redundancy criteria and
simplification rules.

*Decidability Results for Saturation-based Model Building*(No. MPI-I-2009-RG1-004). Saarbrücken: Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik. Retrieved from http://domino.mpi-inf.mpg.de/internet/reports.nsf/NumberView/2009-RG1-004Abstract

Saturation-based calculi such as superposition can be
successfully instantiated to decision procedures for many decidable
fragments of first-order logic. In case of termination without
generating an empty clause, a saturated clause set implicitly represents
a minimal model for all clauses, based on the underlying term ordering
of the superposition calculus. In general, it is not decidable whether a
ground atom, a clause or even a formula holds in this minimal model of a
satisfiable saturated clause set.
Based on an extension of our superposition calculus for fixed domains
with syntactic disequality constraints in a non-equational setting, we
describe models given by ARM (Atomic Representations of term Models) or
DIG (Disjunctions of Implicit Generalizations) representations as
minimal models of finite saturated clause sets. This allows us to
present several new decidability results for validity in such models.
These results extend in particular the known decidability results for
ARM and DIG representations.

*Deciding the Inductive Validity of Forall Exists* Queries*(No. MPI-I-2009-RG1-001).Abstract

We present a new saturation-based decidability result for inductive validity.
Let $\Sigma$ be a finite signature in which all function symbols are at most
unary and let $N$ be a satisfiable Horn clause set without equality in which
all positive literals are linear.
If $N\cup\{A_1,\ldots,A_n\rightarrow\}$ belongs to a finitely saturating clause
class, then it is decidable whether a sentence of the form $\forall\exists^*
(A_1\wedge\ldots\wedge A_n)$ is valid in the minimal model of $N$.

*Superposition for Fixed Domains*(No. MPI-I-2009-RG1-005). Saarbrücken: Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik.Abstract

Superposition is an established decision procedure for a variety of first-order
logic theories represented by sets of clauses. A satisfiable theory, saturated
by superposition, implicitly defines a minimal term-generated model for the
theory.
Proving universal properties with respect to a saturated theory directly leads
to a modification of the minimal model's term-generated domain, as new Skolem
functions are introduced. For many applications, this is not desired.
Therefore, we propose the first superposition calculus that can explicitly
represent existentially quantified variables and can thus compute with respect
to a given domain. This calculus is sound and refutationally complete in the
limit for a first-order fixed domain semantics.
For saturated Horn theories and classes of positive formulas, we can even
employ the calculus to prove properties of the minimal model itself, going
beyond the scope of known superposition-based approaches.

Horbach, M., & Weidenbach, C. (2009e). Decidability Results for Saturation-Based Model Building. In

*22nd International Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE-22)*. Springer.Abstract

Saturation-based calculi such as superposition can be successfully instantiated
to decision procedures for many decidable fragments of first-order logic. In
case of termination without generating an empty clause, a saturated clause set
implicitly represents a minimal model for all clauses, based on the underlying
term ordering of the superposition calculus. In general, it is not decidable
whether a ground atom, a clause or even a formula holds in this minimal model
of a satisfiable saturated clause set.
We extend our superposition calculus for fixed domains with syntactic
disequality constraints in a non-equational setting. Based on this calculus, we
present several new decidability results for validity in the minimal model of a
satisfiable finitely saturated clause set that in particular extend the
decidability results known for ARM (Atomic Representations of term Models) and
DIG (Disjunctions of Implicit Generalizations) model representations.

Ihlemann, C., & Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2009). System Description: H-PILoT. In

*Automated Deduction - CADE-22*. Montreal, Canada: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-02959-2_9Abstract

H-PILoT (Hierarchical Proving by Instantiation in Local Theory extensions)
is a program for hierarchical reasoning in extensions of logical theories with
additional functions axiomatized by a set of (universally quantified) clauses:
deduction problems in the theory extension are reduced to deduction problems
in the base theory. Specialized provers, as well as standard SMT solvers, are
then used for testing the satisfiability of the formulae obtained after the
reduction. The hierarchical reduction used in H-PILoT is always sound; it
is complete for the class of so-called local extensions of a base theory.
If the clauses obtained by this reduction belong to a fragment decidable in
the base theory, H-PILoT provides a decision procedure for testing
satisfiability of ground formulae w.r.t.\ a theory extension, and can also
be used for model generation. This is the major advantage of H-PILoT compared
with other state-of-the art SMT solvers. H-PILoT can alternatively be used as
a tool for ``steering'' the instantiation mechanism of standard SMT provers,
in order to provide decision procedures in the case of local theory extensions.
This system description provides an overview of H-PILoT and illustrates on
some examples the main advantage of using H-PILoT for satisfiability
checking in local extensions, in comparison with the performance of general
state of the art SMT-provers.

*Computer Aided Verification (CAV 2009)*. Grenoble, France: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-02658-4_29Abstract

Many verification approaches use SMT solvers in some form, and are limited by
their incomplete handling of quantified formulas. Local reasoning allows to
handle SMT problems involving a certain class of
universally quantified formulas in a complete way by instantiation to a finite
set of ground formulas. We present a method to generate these instances
incrementally, in order to provide a more efficient way of solving these
satisfiability problems. The incremental instantiation is guided semantically,
inspired by the instance generation approach to first-order theorem proving. Our
method is sound and complete, and terminates on both satisfiable and
unsatisfiable input after generating a subset of the instances needed in
standard local reasoning. Experimental results show that for a large class of
examples the incremental approach is substantially more efficient than eager
generation of all instances.

*Proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on First-Order Theorem Proving (FTP’09)*. Oslo, Norway.Abstract

Today many companies use an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system such as
SAP R/3 to run their daily business ranging from financial issues down to the
actual control of a production line. Already due to their sheer size, these
systems are very complex. In particular, developing and maintaining the
authorization setup is a challenge. The goal of our effort is to automatically
analyze the authorization setup of an SAP R/3 system against business policies.
To this end we formalize the processes, authorization setup as well as the
business policies in first-order logic. Then, properties can be (dis)proven
fully automatically with our theorem prover Spass. We exemplify our approach
on the purchase process, a typical constituent of any SAP R/3 installation.

%X Today many companies use an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system
such as SAP R/3~to run their daily business ranging from
financial issues down to the actual control of a production line.
Already due to their sheer size, these systems are very complex.
In particular, developing and maintaining the authorization setup
is a challenge.
The goal of our effort is to automatically analyze the authorization
setup of an SAP R/3~system against business policies.
To this end we formalize the processes, authorization setup
as well as the business policies
in first-order logic. Then, properties can be (dis)proven fully automatically
with our theorem prover \textsc{Spass}. We exemplify our approach
on the purchase process, a typical constituent of any SAP R/3~installation.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2009a). Locality results for certain extensions of theories with bridging functions. In

*Automated Deduction - CADE-22*. Montreal, Canada: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-02959-2_5Abstract

n this paper we study possibilities of reasoning about
functions over theories of data types which satisfy
certain recursion (or homomorphism) properties, with a
focus on emphasizing possibilities of hierarchical and
modular reasoning in such extensions and combinations thereof.
We start by considering theories of absolutely free data
structures, and continue by studying extensions of such
theories with selectors, with functions which attach scalar
data to the data structures and with additional functions
defined using a certain type of recursion axioms (possibly
having values in a different -- e.g.\ numeric -- domain).
We show that in these cases locality results can be established.
This allows us to reduce the task of reasoning about the class
of recursive functions we consider to reasoning in the
underlying theory of absolutely free data structures
(resp. in a combination of the theory of absolutely free data
structures with the theory attached with the domains of the
additional functions). We then show that similar results can be
obtained if we relax some assumptions about the absolute
freeness of the underlying theory of data types. We investigate
the applications of these ideas in verification and cryptography.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2009c). Sheaves and geometric logic and applications to modular verification of complex systems.

*Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science*,*230*. doi:10.1016/j.entcs.2009.02.024Abstract

In this paper we show that states, transitions and behavior of
concurrent systems can often be modeled as sheaves over a
suitable topological space.
In this context, geometric logic can be used to describe which
local properties, of individual systems, are preserved, at a
global level, when interconnecting the systems.
The main area of application is to modular verification
of complex systems. We illustrate our ideas by means of an
example involving a family of interacting controllers for
trains on a rail track.

*KI 2009: Advances in Artificial Intelligence*. Paderborn, Germany: Springer. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-04617-9_36Abstract

In recent years there has been a growing demand for Automated
Theorem Proving (ATP) in large theories, which often have more
axioms than can be handled effectively as normal internal axioms. This
work addresses the issues of accessing \emph{external sources of axioms} from a
first-order logic ATP system, and presents an implemented ATP system
that retrieves external axioms asynchronously, on demand.

We define a superposition calculus with explicit splitting and
an explicit, new backtracking rule on the basis of labelled clauses.
For the first time we show a superposition calculus with explicit
backtracking rule sound and complete. The new backtracking rule advances
backtracking with branch condensing known from SPASS.
An experimental evaluation of an implementation of the new rule
shows that it improves considerably the
previous SPASS splitting implementation.
Finally, we discuss the relationship between labelled first-order
splitting and DPLL style splitting with intelligent backtracking
and clause learning.

*Superposition and Decision Procedures - Back and Forth*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken.Abstract

Two apparently different approaches to automating deduction are mentioned in
the title; they are the subject of a debate on ``big engines vs.\ little
engines of proof''. The contributions in this thesis advocate that these two
strands of research can interplay in subtle and sometimes unexpected ways, such
that mutual pervasion can lead to intriguing results: Firstly, superposition
can be run on top of decision procedures. This we demonstrate for the class of
Shostak theories, incorporating a little engine into a big one. As another
instance of decision procedures within superposition, we show that ground
confluent rewrite systems, which decide entailment problems in equational
logic, can be harnessed for detecting redundancies in superposition
derivations. Secondly, superposition can be employed as proof-theoretic means
underneath combined decision procedures: We re-establish the correctness of the
Nelson-Oppen procedure as an instance of the completeness of superposition.
Thirdly, superposition can be used as a decision procedure for many interesting
theories, turning a big engine into a little one. For the theory of bits and of
fixed-size bitvectors, we suggest a rephrased axiomatization combined with a
transformation of conjectures, based on which superposition decides the
universal fragment. Furthermore, with a modification of lifting, we adapt
superposition to the theory of bounded domains and give a decision procedure,
which captures the Bernays-Schönfinkel class as well.

We present a general framework which allows to identify complex theories
important in verification for which efficient reasoning methods exist. The
framework we present is based on a general notion of locality. We show that
locality considerations allow us to obtain parameterized decidability and
complexity results for many (combinations of) theories important in
verification in general and in the verification of parametric systems in
particular. We give numerous examples; in particular we show that several
theories of data structures studied in the verification literature are local
extensions of a base theory. The general framework we use allows us to identify
situations in which some of the syntactical restrictions imposed in previous
papers can be relaxed.

*Workshop: Complexity, Expressibility, and Decidability in Automated Reasoning – CEDAR’08*. CEDAR. Retrieved from http://www.mpi-inf.mpg.de/~sjacobs/publications/CEDAR08.pdfAbstract

Local reasoning allows to handle SMT problems involving a certain class of
universally quantified formulas in a complete way by instantiation to a finite
set of ground formulas. We present a method to generate this set incrementally,
in order to provide a more efficient way of solving these satisfiability
problems. The incremental instantiation is guided semantically, inspired by the
instance generation approach to first-order theorem proving. Our method is
sound and complete, and terminates on both satisfiable and unsatisfiable input
after generating a subset of the instances needed in standard local reasoning.

*Analysis of Authorizations in SAP R/3*. Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken.Abstract

Today many companies use an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system
such as the SAP R/3 system to run their daily business ranging from
financial issues down to the actual control of a production line.
These systems are very complex from the view of administration and
authorization. Hence they include a high potential for errors. In this
thesis I analyze the authorization concept of the SAP R/3 system as well as
different business regulations and construct a corresponding model
in first-order logic. This model can be used to check the existence
of errors automatically, i.e. a contradiction between given authorizations
and a valid business regulation. The tool I use for these checks
is the theorem prover \textscSpass which has been developed at the
Max Planck Institute for Informatics. I selected the purchase process as an
example
to explore the model construction because it is a typical constituent of the
SAP R/3 system.

Sofronie-Stokkermans, V. (2008c). Interpolation in local theory extensions.

*Logical Methods in Computer Science*,*4*(4). doi:10.2168/LMCS-4(4:1)2008Abstract

In this paper we study interpolation in local extensions of a base theory. We
identify situations in which it is possible to obtain interpolants in a
hierarchical manner, by using a prover and a procedure for generating
interpolants in the base theory as black-boxes. We present several examples of
theory extensions in which interpolants can be computed this way, and discuss
applications in verification, knowledge representation, and modular reasoning
in combinations of local theories.

In this paper we show that subsumption problems in many
lightweight description logics (including ${\cal EL}$)
can be expressed as uniform word problems in classes of
semilattices with monotone operators.
We use possibilities of efficient local reasoning in such
classes of algebras to obtain uniform PTIME decision
procedures for CBox subsumption in ${\cal EL}$ and
extensions thereof. These locality considerations allow
us to present a new family of logics which extend
${\cal EL}$ and also a new extension of ${\cal EL}^+$.

*KI 2008 : Tutorial 2*. KI. Retrieved from http://www.mpi-inf.mpg.de/~sofronie/papers/pdf/sofronie-tutorial-ki08-27-08.pdfAbstract

One of the most important objectives of the research in mathematics and
computer science is to obtain means of reasoning in and about complex systems.
These can be, for instance complex mathematical theories; programs, or
generally reactive or hybrid systems; distributed databases; or complex systems
in general (e.g. multi-agent systems or reactive or hybrid systems with
embedded software, whose behavior is controlled by databases, reasoning about
knowledge and belief, planning mechanisms, or programs). Proving that such
systems have certain properties (e.g. that they are safe, that they behave
correctly, or that the information they use does not contain inconsistencies)
is extremely important: In safety-critical systems (such as cars, trains,
planes, or power-plants) even small mistakes can provoke disasters. Since the
amount of data which has to be handled in verification tasks is usually huge,
computer support is indispensable. The dream of the scientists is to provide
such correctness proofs automatically. This goal cannot be reached in its full
generality: As shown by undecidability results going back to the work of Gödel,
Church and Turing, it is impossible to write a program for checking arbitrary
properties of general systems. However, for concrete application domains,
automatic procedures exist. It is therefore very important to identify
situations in which automated verification of complex systems is possible. For
this, it is essential to identify theories which are decidable, preferably with
low complexity, and - since concrete problems often are quite heterogeneous in
nature - to obtain methods for efficiently combining decision procedures.
The goal of the tutorial is to give a comprehensive, in-depth perspective of
recent advances in the field of reasoning in complex logical theories, and to
present applications of these results in various areas ranging from formal
verification to reasoning about knowledge. The tutorial introduces the general
principles underlying reasoning in complex theories from a unifying
perspective, gives a survey of recent achievements in the field, and
illustrates the problems and their solutions using a selection of examples from
mathematics, verification, and knowledge representation.

*Sheaves and Geometric Logic and Applications to Modular Verification of Complex Systems*(No. ATR46). SFB/TR 14 AVACS.Abstract

In this paper we show that states, transitions and behavior of
concurrent systems can often be modeled as sheaves over a
suitable topological space (where the topology expresses how the
interacting systems share the information). This allows us to use
results from categorical logic (and in particular geometric
logic) to describe which type of properties are transferred, if
valid locally in all component systems, also at a global level,
to the system obtained by interconnecting the individual systems.
The main area of application is to modular verification of
complex systems.
We illustrate the ideas by means of an example involving
a family of interacting controllers for trains on a rail track.
