Languages and Compilation Techniques

Our research focuses on high level languages with an executable and formal semantics. The former requirement stems from enumerative verification, which relies on the efficient execution of high level descriptions. The latter requirement states that languages lacking a formal semantics are not suitable for safety critical systems (as language ambiguities usually lead to interpretation divergences between designers and implementors). Moreover, enumerative techniques are not always sufficient to establish the correctness of an infinite system (they only deal with finite abstractions); one might need theorem proving techniques, which only apply to languages with a formal semantics.

We are working on several languages with the above properties:
