Abstract

In these two lectures I will discuss current work at the IT-University of Copenhagen where we aim to prove correctness of Java programs using higher order separation logic. The first lecture will be an introductory lecture to separation logic. I will cover the basics -- no previous knowledge in the area is required, although some rudimentary experience with Hoare logic is beneficial. In the second lecture I will cover how to use higher order separation logic to verify Java programs. In particular I will discuss the approach we use to write program specifications and how we reason about inheritance.
