Inductive Assertions and Operational Semantics

By 

Abstract

1 Summary This paper connects two well-known approaches to program verification: operational semantics and inductive assertions. The paper shows how one can adopt the clarity and concreteness of a formal operational semantics while incurring just the proof obligations of the inductive assertion method, without writing a verification condition generator or other extra-logical tool. In particular, the formal definition of the state transition function can be used directly to generate verification conditions for annotated programs
