Solver for Separation Logic Entailments



SPEN (SeParation logic ENtailment) is a solver for checking validity of entailments between formulas in fragments of Separation Logic with inductive definitions.

The logic fragments have been defined in [1] and [2]. They mainly contains existentially quantified Separation Logic formulas with spatial atoms represeting complex data structures defined using inductive definitions. The inductive definitions may specify, for example, doubly linked lists, nested linked lists, fixed depth skip lists, binary search trees, AVL, red-black trees, etc.


SPEN takes as the input a file in the SMTLIB2 format, which includes the recursive definitions used and the entailment problem A => B written as:

(assert A)
(assert not(B))
The definition of the SMTLIB2 theories used as input of SPEN is available in files slrd-theory.smt (for the fragment in [1]) slrdi-theory.smt (for the fragment in [2]).



SPEN has been applied on the following benchmarks suites (included in the distribution):
