Separation Logic: A Logic for Shared Mutable Data Structures
In joint work with Peter O’Hearn and others, based on early ideas of Burstall, we have developed an extension of Hoare logic that permits reasoning about low-level imperative programs that use shared mutable data structure. The simple imperative programming language is extended with commands (not expressions) for accessing and modifying shared structures, and for explicit allocation and deallocation of storage. Assertions are extended by introducing a “separating conjunction” that asserts that its subformulas hold for disjoint parts of the heap, and a closely related “separating implication”.
