Application-oriented Formal Verification

The research group on Application-oriented Formal Verification led by Prof. Bernhard Beckert exists since 2009 at the Institute of Theoretical Informatics and the KIT Department of Informatics.

Our main research topic is the practical application of logic and formal methods for the specification and verification of software. In particular, we address the following application areas:

  • verification of functional properties and software dependability
  • verification of relational properties and software evolution
  • verification of information-flow properties and IT security
  • verification of social choice algorithms and voting rules
