Local Reasoning about Parametric and Reconfigurable Component-based Systems
Abstract: We introduce a logical framework for the specification and verification of component-based systems, in which finitely many component instances are active, but the bound on their number is not known. Besides specifying and verifying parametric systems, we consider the aspect of dynamic reconfiguration, in which components can migrate at runtime on a physical map, whose shape and size may change. We describe such para- metric and reconfigurable architectures using resource logics, close in spirit to Separation Logic, used to reason about dynamic pointer structures. These logics support the principle of local reasoning, which is the key for writing modular specifications and building scalable verification algorithms, that deal with large industrial-size systems. Joint work with Marius Bozga and Joseph Sifakis.
