Paper: Towards Deductive Synthesis of Dataflow Networks (at LICS 1986)

Authors: Bengt Jonsson Zohar Manna Richard J. Waldinger

Abstract

We present a method for deductive synthesis of deterministic dataflow networks. A network is specified by a relation between sequences of input values and sequences of output values. From the specification, an applicative program in the form of recursive equations is derived as a side-effect of proving the specification as a theorem. The recursive equations can subsequently be transformed into a dataflow network. We also indicate how the recursive equations can be transformed into a dataflow language, Lucid. The theorem-proving part of the method uses the deductive-tableau techniques of [MWa].
