Abstract:The incorrect use of pointers is one of the most common source of software errors. Concurrency has a similar characteristic. Proving the correctness of concurrent pointer manipulating programs, let alone algorithmically, is a highly non-trivial task. This paper proposes an automated verification technique for concurrent programs that manipulate linked lists. Key issues of our approach are: automata (with fairness constraints), heap abstractions that are tailored to the program and property to be checked, first-order temporal logic, and a tableau-based model-checking algorithm.
