Item description for Introduction to Formal Hardware Verification by Thomas Kropf...

Hardware verification is a hot topic in circuit and system design due to rising circuit complexity. This advanced textbook presents an almost complete overview of techniques for hardware verification. It covers all approaches used in existing tools, such as binary and word-level decision diagrams, symbolic methods for equivalence checking, and temporal logic model checking, and introduces the use of higher-order logic theorem proving for verifying circuit correctness. It enables the reader to understand the advantages and limitations of each technique. Each chapter contains an introduction and a summary as well as a section for the advanced reader. Thus a broad audience is addressed, from beginners in system design to experts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Formal Hardware Verification?

Excellent Introduction  Sep 10, 2007
This was the first book I read in Formal Verification when I started my Ph.D. research in this area in 2001. The book was of great value to me and helped me a lot in coming up to speed in the field of Formal Verification. It is concise, well explained, and comprehensive. It covers formal hardware models, equivalence checking, model checking, symbolic model checking, and theorem proving. Although a lot of advances have happened in formal verification since the publication of this book, I still think it is the best place to start if you want to learn this area.
Excellent book  May 3, 2001
This book presents each major area in Formal Hardware Verification in a chapter. The treatment is detailed and is based on clear mathematical foundations. I especially like the reachability analysis treatment in Chapter 3. However, I think that one of the weak points of this book is the lack of discussion on different "combinational equivalence checking" techniques.
Book Review  Apr 26, 2000
The book contains the concepts of the most recently researches in the area of formal hardware verification .I read a lot of journal publications, and I couldn't get the expected benefit from most of them, because they assume a high background in formal techniques. This book offers me the basic knowledge, that enable to get complete benefit from the other publications in this topic. The book also contains a lot of illustrative examples, and Figures that follow each section, and this make it easier to the reader.
