Cohesive Project (Lab. EI)


Interesting and useful slides for preparing your milestone presentations:


Project ideas from Prover Technology (if you are interested in any of these projects please contact Alcino Cunha):

  1. Experimental Prover back-end for Alloy or (preferably) Electrum. This could be done in several ways. One way would be to translate Alloy/Electrum models into HLL models. Another (probably simpler) way would be to translate some internal representation used by Alloy/Electrum directly to LLL.
  2. Experimental Prover back-end for TLA+. Again this could be done in different ways, such as translating TLA+ to HLL.
  3. Experimental translation of Hybrid automata to HLL, see "Symbolic Simulation of Dataflow Synchronous Programs with Timers" by Guillaume Baudart, Timothy Bourke, and Marc Pouzet.
  4. Experimental translation of Solidity (Ethereum's language for writing smart contracts) to HLL.
  5. Take any modeling/verification problem that you could have reasonably approached using Alloy or TLA+, model it in HLL and verify it using PSL. This case study would be particularly interesting, since it has already been approached using Electrum (see Validating the Hybrid ERTMS/ETCS Level 3 Concept with Electrum).


  • HLL: Prover's high-level language for modeling reactive systems (predicate logic and rich data types).
  • LLL: Prover's low-level language for modeling reactive systems (propositional logic).
  • PSL: Prover's model checker.

Project proposed by J.C. Ramalho (contact person: J.N. Oliveira):

  1. Formal modelling of a support system for a TS-RADA ontology for the M-51-CLAV platform.
