Separation Logic Course

I tauch from 2013 until 2017 at the MPRI (Parisian Master of Research in Computer Sciences), the program verification course, together with Claude Marché. The course covered the following chapters:
  • Heap predicates, heap entailment, interpretation triples, derivation rules.
  • Representation predicates for list and trees, nested mutable data structures, ownership transfer.
  • Reasoning about loops, frame during loops, higher-order functions, iterators.
  • Arrays, records and objects, frame over individual cells, data structures with sharing.
  • Extensions of Separation Logic for read-only permissions, parallelism, concurrency, and amortized analysis.
  • Characteristic formulae for integrating Separation Logic in Coq.

Here are the slides from Febuary 2017:

The course is now taught by Jean-Marie Madiot.
