Reasoning about Comprehensions with
SAC '09 Proceedings of the 2009 ACM symposium on Applied Computing.

This paper presents a technique for translating common
comprehension expressions (sum, count, product, min,
and max) into verification conditions that can be tackled
by two off-the-shelf first-order SMT solvers. Since a first-
order SMT solver does not directly support the bound variables that occur in comprehension expressions, the challenge
is to provide a sound axiomatisation that is strong enough
to prove interesting programs and, furthermore, that can
be used automatically by the SMT solver. The technique
has been implemented in the Spec# program verifier. The
paper also reports on the experience of using Spec# to verify several challenging programming examples drawn from a
textbook by Dijkstra and Feijen.
