• Apply here Summary The ANR project BLaSST targets bridging combinatorial and symbolic techniques in automatic theorem prov- ing, in particular for proof obligations generated from B models. Work will be carried out on SAT-based techniques as well as on more expressive SMT formalisms. In both cases encoding techniques, optimized resolution techniques, model generation, and lemma suggestion will be considered. Combining both lines of work, the expected scientific impact is a substantially higher degree of automation of solvers for expressive input languages by leveraging higher-order reasoning and enumerative instantiations over finite domains.
