Accelerated Symbolic Polyhedral Invariant Geneneration
Keywords: Abstract Interpretation - Invariant Generation
Aspic is an invariant generator for general counter automata. Used with C2fsm (a tool developed by P. Feautrier in COMPSYS), it can be used to derivate invariants for numerical C programs, and also to prove safety. It is also part of the WTC toolsuite (see http://compsys-tools.ens-lyon.fr/wtc/index.html), a tool chain to compute worse-case time complexity of a given sequential program.
Aspic implements the theoretical results of Laure Gonnord's PhD thesis on acceleration techniques and has been maintained since 2007.
