Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss the principles of static analysis by abstract interpretation and report on the automatic verification of the absence of runtime errors in large embedded aerospace software by static analysis based on abstract interpretation. The first industrial applications concerned synchronous control/command software in open loop. Recent advances consider imperfectly synchronous programs, parallel programs, and target code validation as well. Future research directions on abstract interpretation are also discussed in the context of aerospace software.
