Abstract. In this work we introduce counterexample guided path reduction based on interval constraint solving for static program analysis. The aim of this technique is to reduce the number of false positives by reducing the number of feasible paths in the abstraction iteratively. Given a counterexample, a set of observers is computed which exclude infeasible paths in the next iteration. This approach combines ideas from counterexample guided abstraction refinement for software verification with static analysi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
