Satisfiability Modulo Theories

- Given a formula in first-order logic, with

associated background theories, is the formula

satisfiable? - Yes return a satisfying solution
- No generate a proof of unsatisfiability

Applications of SMT

- Hardware verification at higher levels of

abstraction (RTL and above) - Verification of analog/mixed-signal circuits
- Verification of hybrid systems
- Software model checking
- Software testing
- Security Finding vulnerabilities, verifying

electronic voting machines, - Program synthesis

First-Order Logic

- A formal notation for mathematics, with

expressions involving - Propositional symbols
- Predicates
- Functions and constant symbols
- Quantifiers
- In contrast, propositional (Boolean) logic only

involves propositional symbols and operators

First-Order Logic Syntax

- As with propositional logic, expressions in

first-order logic are made up of sequences of

symbols. - Symbols are divided into logical symbols and

non-logical symbols or parameters. - Example
- (x y) Æ (y z) Æ (f(z) f(x)1)

First-Order Logic Syntax

- Logical Symbols
- Propositional connectives Ç, Æ, , !,
- Variables v1, v2, . . .
- Quantifiers 8, 9
- Non-logical symbols/Parameters
- Equality
- Functions , -, , bit-wise , f(), concat,
- Predicates , is_substring,
- Constant symbols 0, 1.0, null,

Quantifier-free Subset

- We will largely restrict ourselves to formulas

without quantifiers (8, 9) - This is called the quantifier-free

subset/fragment of first-order logic with the

relevant theory

Logical Theory

- Defines a set of parameters (non-logical symbols)

and their meanings - This definition is called a signature.
- Example of a signature
- Theory of linear arithmetic over integers
- Signature is (0,1,,-,) interpreted over Z

Some Useful Theories

- Equality (with uninterpreted functions)
- Linear arithmetic (over Q or Z)
- Difference logic (over Q or Z)
- Finite-precision bit-vectors
- integer or floating-point
- Arrays / memories
- Misc. Non-linear arithmetic, strings, inductive

datatypes (e.g. lists), sets,

Theory of Equality and Uninterpreted Functions

(EUF)

- Also called the free theory
- Because function symbols can take any meaning
- Only property required is congruence that these

symbols map identical arguments to identical

values i.e., x y ) f(x) f(y) - SMTLIB name QF_UF

F3

- For any Block that Transforms or Evaluates Data
- Replace with generic, unspecified function
- Also view instruction memory as function

Example QF_UF (EUF) Formula

- (x y) Æ (y z) Æ (f(x) ? f(z))
- Transitivity
- (x y) Æ (y z) ) (x z)
- Congruence
- (x z) ) (f(x) f(z))

Equivalence Checking of

Program Fragments

int fun1(int y) int x, z z y y

SMT formula ? Satisfiable iff programs

non-equivalent ( z y Æ y1 x Æ x1 z Æ

ret1 x1x1) Æ ( ret2 yy ) Æ (

ret1 ? ret2 )

int fun2(int y) return yy

What if we use SAT to check equivalence?

Equivalence Checking of

SMT formula ? Satisfiable iff programs

non-equivalent ( z y Æ y1 x Æ x1 z Æ

ret1 x1x1) Æ ( ret2 yy ) Æ (

ret1 ? ret2 )

int fun2(int y) return yy

Using EUF solver 0.01 sec

Equivalence Checking of

Program Fragments

int fun1(int y) int x x x y y

x y x x y return xx

Does EUF still work?

No! Must reason about bit-wise XOR. Need a

solver for bit-vector arithmetic. Solvable in

less than a sec. with a current bit-vector solver.

int fun2(int y) return yy

Finite-Precision Bit-Vector Arithmetic (QF_BV)

- Fixed width data words
- Can model int, short, long, etc.
- Arithmetic operations
- E.g., add/subtract/multiply/divide comparisons
- Twos complement and unsigned operations
- Bit-wise logical operations
- E.g., and/or/xor, shift/extract and equality
- Boolean connectives

Linear Arithmetic

(QF_LRA, QF_LIA)

- Boolean combination of linear constraints of the

form - (a1 x1 a2 x2 an xn b)
- xis could be in Q or Z , 2 ,gt,,lt,
- Many applications, including
- Verification of analog circuits
- Software verification, e.g., of array bounds

Difference Logic (QF_IDL,

QF_RDL)

- Boolean combination of linear constraints of the

form - xi - xj cij or xi ci
- 2 ,gt,,lt,, xis in Q or Z
- Applications
- Software verification (most linear constraints

are of this form) - Processor datapath verification
- Job shop scheduling / real-time systems
- Timing verification for circuits

Arrays/Memories

- SMT solvers can also be very effective in

modeling data structures in software and hardware - Arrays in programs
- Memories in hardware designs e.g. instruction

and data memories, CAMs, etc.

Theory of Arrays (QF_AX)Select and Store

- Two interpreted functions select and store
- select(A,i) Read from A at index i
- store(A,i,d) Write d to A at index i
- Two main axioms
- select(store(A,i,d), i) d
- select(store(A,i,d), j) select(A,j) for i ? j
- One other axiom
- (8 i. select(A,i) select(B,i)) ) A B

Equivalence Checking of

Program Fragments

int fun1(int y) int x2 x0 y

y x1 x1 x0 return x1x1

SMT formula ? x1 store(x,0,y) Æ y1

select(x1,1) Æ x2 store(x1,1,select(x1,0))

Æ ret1 sq(select(x2,1))

Æ ( ret2 sq(y) ) Æ ( ret1 ? ret2 )

int fun2(int y) return yy

Eager Approach to SMT

SAT Solver involved in Theory Reasoning

- Key Ideas
- Small-domain encoding
- Constrain model search
- Rewrite rules
- Abstraction-based methods (eager lazy)

the following Theories - Equality Uninterpreted Functions
- Integer Linear Arithmetic
- Restricted Lambda expressions
- Arrays, memories, etc.
- Finite-precision Bit-Vector Arithmetic
- Strings

Rewrites Eliminating Function Applications

- Two applications of an uninterpreted function f

in a formula - f(x1) and f(x2)

Small-Domain Encoding

- Consider an SMT formula ?(x1, x2, , xn) where xi

2 Di - Small-domain encoding/Finite instantiation

Derive finite set Si ½

Di s.t. Si Di - In some cases, Si is finite where Di is infinite
- Encode each xi to take values only in Si
- Could be done by encoding to SAT
- Example Integer Linear Arithmetic (QF_LIA)

Solving QF_LIA is NP-complete

- In NP
- If a satisfying solution exists, then one exists

within a bound d - log d is polynomial in input size
- Expression for d Papadimitriou, 82
- (nm) (bmax 1) ( m amax ) 2m3
- Input size
- m constraints
- n variables
- bmax largest constant (absolute value)
- amax largest coefficient (absolute value)

Small-domain encoding / Finite Instantiation

Naïve approach

- Steps
- Calculate the solution bound d
- Encode each integer variable with d log d e bits

translate to Boolean formula - Run SAT solver
- Problem For QF_LIA, d is W( m m )
- W( m log m ) bits per variable
- Solution Exploit special-cases and

domain-specific structure

Special Case 1 Equality Logic

- Linear constraints are equalities xi xj
- Result d n

x1 ? x2 Æ x2 ? x3 Æ x1 ? x3 3-valued domain

is needed 1, 2, 3

Special Case 2 Difference Logic

- Boolean combination of difference-bound

constraints - xi xj b, xi b
- Result d n (bmax 1)

Bryant, Lahiri, Seshia, CAV02 - Proof sketch satisfying solution corresponds to

shortest path in constraint graph - Longest such path has length n (bmax 1)
- Tighter formula-specific bounds possible

Special Case 3 Generalized 2SAT

- Generalized 2SAT constraints
- xi xj b, - xi - xj b, xi - xj b,

xi b - d 2 n (bmax 1) Seshia, Subramani,

Bryant,04

Full Integer Linear Arithmetic

- Can we avoid the mm blow-up?
- In fact, yes. The idea is to derive a new

parameterized solution bound d - Formalize parameters that the bound really

depends on - Parameters characterize sparse structure
- Occurs especially in software verification also

in many high-level hardware models - Seshia Bryant, LICS04, LMCS05

Structure of Linear Constraints in Software

Verification

- Characteristics of studied benchmarks
- Mostly difference constraints
- Only 3 of constraints were NOT difference

constraints - Non-difference constraints are sparse
- At most 6 variables per constraint (total number

of variables in 1000s) - Some similar observations Pratt77,

ESC/Java-Simplify-TR03

Parameterized Solution Bound

- New parameters
- k non-difference constraints,
- w variables per constraint (width)

m constraints

n variables

bmax max constant

amax max coefficient

Example

m constraints 3

k non-difference 1

n variables 4

w width 3

bmax max constant 3

Abstraction-Based Methods

- For some logics, one cannot easily compute a

closed-form expression for the small domain - Example Bit-Vector Arithmetic
- In such cases, an abstraction-refinement approach

can be used to compute formula-specific small

domains

Bit-Vector Arithmetic Some History

- B.C. (Before Chaff)
- String operations (concatenate, field extraction)
- Linear arithmetic with bounds checking
- Modular arithmetic
- SAT-Based Bit Blasting
- Generate Boolean circuit based on bit-level

behavior of operations - Handles arbitrary operations
- Check with best available SAT solver
- Effective in many applications
- CBMC Clarke, Kroening, Lerda, TACAS 04
- Microsoft Cogent SLAM Cook, Kroening,

Sharygina, CAV 05

Research Challenge

- Is there a better way than bit blasting?
- Requirements
- Provide same functionality as with bit blasting
- Must support all bit-vector operators
- Exploit word-level structure
- Improve on performance of bit blasting
- Current Approaches based on two core ideas
- Simplification Simplify input formula using

word-level rewrite rules and solvers - Abstraction Can use automatic abstraction-refinem

ent to solve simplified formula

Bit-Vector SMT Solvers, circa Spr.2009

- Current Techniques with Sample Tools
- Proof-based abstraction-refinement UCLID

Bryant et al., TACAS 07 - Solver for linear modular arithmetic to simplify

the formula STP Ganesh Dill, CAV07 - Automatic parameter tuning for SAT Spear Hutter

et al., FMCAD 07 - Rewrites, underapproximation, efficient SAT

engine Boolector Brummayer Biere, TACAS09 - Equality/constant propagation, logic

optimization, special rules for non-linear ops -

Beaver Jha et al., CAV09 - DPLL(T) framework Layered approach, rewriting

CVC3 Barrett et al., MathSAT Bruttomesso et

al, Yices Dutertre et al., Z3 de Moura et al

Abstraction-Refinement

- Deciding Bit-Vector Arithmetic with Abstraction

Bryant et al., TACAS 07, STTT 09 - Use bit blasting as core technique
- Apply to simplified versions of formula under

and over approximations - Generate successive approximations until a

solution is found or formula shown unsatisfiable - Inspired by McMillan Amlas proof-based

abstraction for finite-state model checking - Small Motivating Example
- (x y ? y x) Æ (x y ? y x)
- Sufficient to prove the left-hand conjunct unsat

Approximations to Formula

?

Original Formula

- Example Approximation Techniques
- Underapproximating
- Restrict word-level variables to smaller ranges

of values - Overapproximating
- Replace subformula with Boolean variable

Starting Iterations

?

?1-

- Initial Underapproximation
- (Greatly) restrict ranges of word-level variables
- Intuition Satisfiable formula often has

small-domain solution

First Half of Iteration

?

?1-

- SAT Result for ?1-
- Satisfiable
- Then have found solution for ?
- Unsatisfiable
- Use UNSAT proof to generate overapproximation ?1

Second Half of Iteration

?1

?

?1-

- SAT Result for ?1
- Unsatisfiable then have shown ? unsatisfiable
- Satisfiable solution indicates variable ranges

that must be expanded - Generate refined underapproximation

Example

?1 (x y2)

? (x y2) Æ (x2 gt y2)

?2- (x2 y22) Æ (x22 gt y22)

?1- (x1 y12) Æ (x12 gt y12)

Iterative Behavior

- Underapproximations
- Successively more precise abstractions of ?
- Allow wider variable ranges
- Overapproximations
- No predictable relation
- UNSAT proof not unique
