    DescriptionRecent years have seen the development of powerful tools for verifying hardware and software systems, as companies worldwide realise the need for improved means of validating their products. There is increasing demand for training in basic methods in formal reasoning so that students can gain proficiency in logic-based verification methods. The second edition of this successful textbook addresses both those requirements, by continuing to provide a clear introduction to formal reasoning which is both relevant to the needs of modern computer science and rigorous enough for practical application. Improvements to the first edition have been made throughout, with extra and expanded sections on SAT solvers, existential/universal second-order logic, micro-models, programming by contract and total correctness. The coverage of model-checking has been substantially updated. Further exercises have been added. Internet support for the book includes worked solutions for all exercises for teachers, and model solutions to some exercises for students.

    Review quote
    '... an unusual, inspiring and remarkable book ... one can find in it all the material which is suitable for undergraduate and beginning graduate students in computer science and electrical engineering who will profit by using it in their professional activities in the near future.' Zentralblatt MATH 'The second edition of this successful textbook continues to provide a clear introduction to formal reasoning relevant to the needs of modern computer science and sufficiently exacting for practical applications.' Phinews 'This book provides an elegant introduction to formal reasoning that is relevant to computation science. This second edition improves the first one with extra and expanded sections on temporal logic model checking, SAT solvers, second-order logic, the Alloy specification language, and programming by contract. The material is up-to-date and practical ...' Zentralblatt MATH
