Project Overview

Model-finders such as SAT-solvers are attractive for producing concrete models, either as sample instances or as counterexamples when properties fail. However, the generated model is arbitrary. To address this, several research efforts have proposed principled forms of output from model-finders. These include minimal and maximal models, unsat cores, and proof-based provenance of facts.
