The thrust of this project is to advance deduction-based software verification by short-circuiting its standard pipeline (static analyzer generates invariants; verifying compiler generates verification conditions; theorem prover proves or disproves them) by using theorem proving to support invariant generation and termination analysis. To this end the project will develop new interpolation techniques and model-constructing decision procedures.
