Taming release-acquire consistency
We introduce a strengthening of the release-acquire fragment of the C11 memory model that (i) forbids dubious behaviors that are not observed in any implementation; (ii) supports ...

Modelling the ARMv8 architecture, operationally: concurrency and ISA
In this paper we develop semantics for key aspects of the ARMv8 multiprocessor architecture: the concurrency model and much of the 64-bit application-level instruction set (ISA). ...

Newtonian program analysis via tensor product
Recently, Esparza et al. generalized Newton’s method—a numerical-analysis algorithm for finding roots of real-valued functions—to a method for finding fixed-points of sys...

Learning invariants using decision trees and implication counterexamples
Inductive invariants can be robustly synthesized using a learning model where the teacher is a program verifier who instructs the learner through concrete program configurations...

Is sound gradual typing dead?
Programmers have come to embrace dynamically-typed languages for prototyping and delivering large and complex systems. When it comes to maintaining and evolving these systems, the...

Symbolic computation of differential equivalences
Ordinary differential equations (ODEs) are widespread in many natural sciences including chemistry, ecology, and systems biology, and in disciplines such as control theory and ele...

From MinX to MinC: semantics-driven decompilation of recursive datatypes
Reconstructing the meaning of a program from its binary executable is known as reverse engineering; it has a wide range of applications in software security, exposing piracy, lega...

Kleenex: compiling nondeterministic transducers to deterministic streaming transducers
We present and illustrate Kleenex, a language for expressing general nondeterministic finite transducers, and its novel compilation to streaming string transducers with worst-cas...

Estimating types in binaries using predictive modeling
Reverse engineering is an important tool in mitigating vulnerabilities in binaries. As a lot of software is developed in object-oriented languages, reverse engineering of object-o...

Decidability of inferring inductive invariants
Induction is a successful approach for verification of hardware and software systems. A common practice is to model a system using logical formulas, and then use a decision proce...
