Deductive Verification of Continuous Dynamical Systems

Ankur Taly & Ashish Tiwari
We define the notion of inductive invariants for continuous dynamical systems and use it to present inference rules for safety verification of polynomial continuous dynamical systems. We present two different sound and complete inference rules, but neither of these rules can be effectively applied. We then present several simpler and practical inference rules that are sound and relatively complete for different classes of inductive invariants. The simpler inference rules can be effectively checked when all...
