Abstract : We introduce the notion of array-based system as a suitable abstraction of infinite state systems such as broadcast protocols or sorting programs. By using a class of quantified-first order formulae to symbolically represent array-based systems, we propose methods to check safety (invariance) and liveness (recurrence) properties on top of Satisfiability Modulo Theories solvers. We find hypotheses under which the verification procedures for such properties can be fully mechanized.
