{{:cost-logo.png|COST LOGO}} ====== Rich-Model Toolkit ====== ===== About the Initiative ===== This **rich model toolkit** initiative explores directions and techniques for making automated reasoning (including analysis and synthesis) applicable to a wider range of problems, as well as making them easier to use by researchers, software developers, hardware designers, and information system users and developers. It includes participants from over **20 countries**, **over 50 research groups**. The unifying idea of rich models is to explore precise mathematical and formal models of key aspects of our infrastructure, developing algorithms, tools, and common standardized formats. Through our networking activities we aim to establish connections between different tools, methodologies, and communities. Selected Topics of Interest: * **Standardization of expressive languages.** Formats to represent systems, formulas, proofs, counterexamples. Translation between specification languages. Benchmarks and competitions for automated reasoning, verification, analysis, synthesis. * **Decision procedures.** Decision procedures for new classes of constraints. SAT and SMT implementation and certification. Encoding synthesis and analysis problems into SMT. Description logics and scalable reasoning about knowledge bases. * **Transition system analysis.** Abstraction-based approaches and refinement for verification of infinite-state systems. Constraint-based program analysis. Data-flow analysis for complex domains. Extracting transition systems from programming languages and bytecodes. * **[[synthesis|High-level synthesis.]]** New algorithms for synthesis from high-level specifications. Extending decision procedures to perform synthesis tasks. Connections between invariant generation and code synthesis. The chair and the grant holder of the action is [[|Cesar Sanchez]]. The Action holds general meetings typically twice a year, with one of these meetings publicized as the **SVARM** workshop. ===== Recent Activities ===== * Verification Modulo Theories (more information available soon) * [[ | Numerical Transition Systems]] ===== Meetings ===== The scientific program of our meetings is open to public and runs under the SVARM workshop series.
