Bornat, Richard ORCID logoORCID: (2010) Separation logic and concurrency. In: Formal Methods: State of the Art and New Directions. Boca, Paul, Bowen, Jonathan P. and Siddiqi, Jawed, eds. Springer-Verlag, London, pp. 217-248. ISBN 9781848827356. [Book Section] (doi:10.1007/978-1-84882-736-3_7)


Concurrent separation logic is a development of Hoare logic adapted to deal with pointers and concurrency. Since its inception, it has been enhanced with a treatment of permissions to enable sharing of data between threads, and a treatment of variables as resource alongside heap cells as resource. An introduction to the logic is given with several examples of proofs, culminating in a treatment of Simpson’s 4-slot algorithm, an instance of racy non-blocking concurrency.
