Paper: Program Correctness on Finite Fields (at LICS 1986)

Authors: László Csirmaz Bradd Hart

Abstract

An asserted program is presented whose correctness is provable by the Floyd-Hoare-Naur method in each finite field separately, which, however, admits no universal derivation, i.e. on which would work on all but finitely many fields of a given characteristic. Also it is proved in general that if 'executing a program twice with the same input, the outputs agree' is a provable property, then the output of the program is first order definable from the input.
