Course focuses on the formal specification and verification of reactive systems, most notably concurrent and distributed systems. Topics relevant to these systems, such as non-determinism, safety and liveness properties, asynchronous communication or compositional reasoning, are discussed. We rely on a notation (T LA+, the Temporal Logic of Actions) and a support tool (TLC, the TLA+ Model Checker). Students are expected to be knowledgeable in logic and to be able to write symbolic proofs in predicate calculus. A basic understanding of the notions of assertion, precondition, and post-condition is also assumed.
