The Castro-Liskov algorithm (Miguel Castro and Barbara Liskov, Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance and Proactive Recovery, TOCS [] ) intuitively seems like a modification of Paxos [] to handle Byzantine failures, using 3n+1 processes instead of 2n+1 to handle n failures.

style of a natural deduction system “a la Prawitz.” Of course, this has been done be-fore (e.g., in van Dalen [6]) but our presentation has more of a “computer science” flavor which should make it more easily digestible by our intended audience. Using such a proof system, it is easy to describe very clearly what is a proof by contra-. In the form of tools like EasyCrypt, relational program logics have been used for mechanizing formal proofs of various cryptographic constructions. With an eye towards scaling these successes towards end-to-end security proofs for implementations of distributed systems, we present rF*, a new extension of F*, a general-purpose higher-order stateful programming language with a verification.

Abstraction, Refinement and Proof for Probabilistic Systems presents a rigorous approach to modeling and reasoning about computer systems that incorporate probability.

Its foundations lie in traditional Boolean sequential-program logic—but its extension to numeric rather than merely true-or-false judgments takes it much further, into areas.

This is a selection, reworked, expanded and with uniform notation, of our principal published papers since on probabilistic systems and semantics. Its three parts are intended for advanced undergraduates (formal methods), early graduates (semantic techniques) and researchers (new areas) respectively.

Abstract. We present a methodology and implementation for Abstraction ANSI-C programs that exhibit probabilistic behaviour, such as failures or randomisation.

We use abstraction-refinement techniques that represent probabilistic programs as Markov decision processes and their abstractions as stochastic two-player games. She has published widely in formal methods on topics ranging from highly theoretical (quantitative modal algebra) to extremely practical (automatic correctness verifiers for probabilistic systems).

Abstract: Precisely modeling complex systems like cyber-physical systems is challenging, which often render model-based system verification techniques like model checking infeasible.

To overcome this challenge, we propose a method called LAR to automatically ‘verify’ such complex systems through a combination of learning, abstraction and refinement from a set of system.

Its foundations lie in. This book summarizes recent research on abstraction techniques for model checking large digital system.

Considering the size of today's digital systems and the capacity of state-of-the-art verification algorithms, abstraction is the only viable solution for the successful application of model checking techniques to industrial-scale designs.

Her research uses mathematics to prove quantitative properties of programs, and more recently to provide foundations for quantitative information flow for analysing security properties.

A corresponding notion of refinement and simulation-based proof rules are introduced. Probabilistic action systems are based on discrete-time Markov decision processes. Numerical methods solving the optimisation problems posed by Markov decision processes are well-known, and used in a software tool that we have developed.

Refinement checking answers the question on whether an implementation model is a refinement of a specification model, which is of great value for system verification. Some refinement relationships, e.g., trace refinement and failures/divergence refinement, have been recognized for different verification purposes.

In general, refinement checking algorithms often rely on subset construction. > Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems by B.

We develop a formal probabilistic automaton model of differential privacy for systems by adapting prior work on differential privacy for functions. The main technical result of the paper is a sound proof technique based on a form of probabilistic bisimulation relation for proving that a system modeled as a probabilistic automaton satisfies.Probability is widely used in the design and analysis of software and hardware systems, as a means to derive e?cient algorithms (e.g.

randomization), as a model for unreliable or unpredictable behavior (as in the study of fault-tolerant systems and computer networks), and as a tool to study performance and - pendability properties.The goal of this book is to provide a comprehensive and systematic introduction to the important and highly applicable method of data refinement and the simulation methods used for proving its correctness.
