A Proof of Satisfiability in Mukherjee and Stavridou's Ammunition Control System

Lookup NU author(s): Professor John Fitzgerald



This report illustrates the use of rigorous proof in the validation of a model in the formal language VDM-SL. The illustration is based on a system which monitors and controls the safe storage of explosives. Using the established proof theory of VDM-SL, the proof of satisfiability of an operation is conducted to a high degree of rigour, with proofs of supporting auxiliary results. The paper is intended to serve as a case study for researchers developing proof and validation support systems for model-oriented specification languages.
