The talk will be presented by Joe Hendrix on Tuesday, February 2nd, at 10:30am. (slides)Abstract: There is a great deal of interest today in developing multi-purpose environments that combine declarative programming, with specification languages and useful automated analysis techniques. In this talk, I will survey one such an environment: the Maude system. I will start by describing how to program in Maude with a focus on its support for rewriting modulo axioms. After some examples, I will also survey some of the different analysis tools developed on top of the Maude system —- including the model checker, inductive theorem prover, and an extension to the core language for modeling systems that operate in real-time.Details:
