“Finding Your Way Through Formal Verification provides an introduction to formal verification methods. This book was written as a way to dip a toe in formal waters. You may be curious about formal verification, but you’re not yet sure it is right for your needs. Or you may need to plan and supervise formal verification activity as a part of a larger verification objective.
You don’t plan to run formal tools yourself but you know that effective management will require some understanding. In verification planning, you certainly need to know where formal can play a role and where it may not be suitable, what effort and expertise should be planned for in using these techniques (like most verification techniques, these generally aren’t push-button) and how you can assess effectiveness and coverage in what formal teams report back to you.
The authors of Finding Your Way Through Formal Verification are experts in using formal verification. This book serves as a foundation for how methods work, when and where to apply them and how formal verification is managed in the overall verification objective.”
