Section: Application Domains
Safety of aerospace systems
In parallel with this effort in logic and in the development of proof checkers and automated theorem proving systems, we always have been interested in using such tools. One of our favorite application domain is the safety of aerospace systems. Together with César Muñoz' team in Nasa-Langley, we have proved the correctness of several geometric algorithms used in air traffic control.
This has led us sometimes to develop such algorithms ourselves, and sometimes to develop tools for automating these proofs.
