By Marcelo Sousa Abstract Causality-based abstract interpretation is a new technique for computing path-sensitive interference conditions during abstract interpretation of concurrent programs. In lieu of fixed point computation, it uses prime event structures to compactly represent causal dependence and interference between sequences of transformers. The main contribution of the approach is an unfolding algorithm equivalent ... Read more about "Causality-Based Abstract Interpretation = Super-Optimal DPOR + Abstraction"
