UE SAT/SMT Solving

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :

Description

Understanding how decision procedures for SAT (Boolean satisfiability) and SMT (SAT enriched with arithmetic etc.) work, and how to use them in practice.

These procedures can be used in automatic analysis of software or hardware, in combinatorial optimisation or in search for solutions in operation research.

Contents :

  • SAT/SMT algorithms
  • Lab classes: using a SMT solver

Prerequisites

Basic mathematical logic : Boolean operators, quantifiers
Algorithmics
Programming
