Abstract [en]

In this thesis an operational semantics for a subset of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is developed and presented. The subset contains standard operations such as control flow, computation, and memory management. In addition, the subset contains a treatment of parallel threads of execution. The operational semantics are embedded into a $µ$-calculus based proof assistant, called the VeriCode Proof Tool (VCPT). VCPT has been developed at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS), and has powerful features for proving inductive assertions. Some examples of proving properties of programs using the embedding are presented.


Abstract [sv]

I det här examensarbetet  presenteras en operationell semantik för en delmängd av Javas virtuella maskin. Den delmängd som hanteras innehåller kontrollflöde, beräkningar och minneshantering. Vidare beskrivs  semantiken för parallella exekveringstrådar.

Den operationella semantiken formaliseras i en bevisassistent for $µ$-kalkyl, VeriCode Proof Tool (VCPT). VCPT har utvecklats vid Swedish Institiute of Computer Science (SICS), och har kraftfulla tekniker för att bevisa induktiva påståenden.

Några exempel på bevis av egenskaper hos program användandes formaliseringen presenteras också.
