Basic principles of automated analysis and verification of programs (model checking, static analysis, dynamic analysis, and deductive methods) and their practical applications (e.g., detecting concurrency errors).



During the lectures we will describe individual program verification and analysis methods, including basic concepts, main algorithms, and their limitations.

The purpose of the lab is to provide students with a hand-on experience with selected verification and analysis tools ( Java Pathfinder, CBMC, Code Contracts, WALA, ...).

Homework assignments

There will be five assignments, each taking approximately 10-15 hours of homework. You need to do the assignment no. 5 (presentation of some research publication) and two others to get credit (“zápočet”).
Note: 10% of your score will be deducted for every calendar day your solution of the assignment is late. This implies that no solutions will be accepted after 10 calendar days past its due date.

Final grades will depend on the quality of your homework and on the result of the voluntary final exam as follows:

Grades will be based on points in the following way:

Grade Required points
Excellent:85-125 points
Very good:72-84 points
Good: 60-71 points
