  3. An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory

    Work — Presentation Abstract interpretation for static analysis Concrete vs abstract interpretation Parallelism References Abstract interpretation for static analysis Abstract interpretation is a technique to perform static analysis A static analysis of a program is made without executing the program The goal is to prove the correctness (or other property) of the program An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory Work — Presentation 3 / 12

  7. An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory

    Work — Presentation Abstract interpretation for static analysis Concrete vs abstract interpretation Parallelism References Concrete interpretation Correct program Incorrect program We want to prove the correctness of the program Testing: is not enough to prove exhaustivity is impossible An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory Work — Presentation 7 / 12

    Work — Presentation Abstract interpretation for static analysis Concrete vs abstract interpretation Parallelism References Abstract interpretation Correct program Incorrect program Correct abstract interpretation Incorrect abstract interpretation An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory Work — Presentation 7 / 12
  9. An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory

    Work — Presentation Abstract interpretation for static analysis Concrete vs abstract interpretation Parallelism References Abstract interpretation Correct abstract interpretation Incorrect abstract interpretation Decidability? Soundness vs completeness? Good complexity vs precision? =⇒ parallelism to improve speed An Efficient and Parallel Abstract Interpreter in Scala — Preparatory Work — Presentation 8 / 12
