Webinar abstract:
Since the development of the first computer algebra systems in the '60s, 
automated decision procedures for checking the satisfiability of logical 
formulas gained more and more importance.
Besides symbolic computation techniques, some major achievements were 
made in the '90s in the relatively young area of satisfiability 
checking, and resulted in powerful SAT and SAT-modulo-theories (SMT) 
Nowadays, these sophisticated tools are at the heart of many techniques 
for the analysis of programs and probabilistic, timed, hybrid and 
cyber-physical systems, for test-case generation, for solving large 
combinatorial problems and complex scheduling tasks, for product design 
optimisation, planning and controller synthesis, just to mention a few 
well-known areas.
In this talk we give a historical overview of this development, describe 
shortly our own solver SMT-RAT, and discuss applications and some 
fascinating new developments for checking the satisfiability of 
real-arithmetic formulas.

About the speaker:
Erika Abraham graduated at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel 
(Germany), and received her PhD from the University of Leiden (The 
Netherlands) for her work on the development and application of 
deductive proof systems for concurrent programs.
Then she moved to the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg (Germany), 
where she started to work on the development and application of SAT and 
SMT solvers. Since 2008 she is professor at RWTH Aachen University 
(Germany), with main research focus on SMT solving for real and integer 
arithmetic, and formal methods for probabilistic and hybrid systems.

We look forward to meeting you at the webinar this Thursday.

Yours sincerely,

Informatics Europe
