Abstract

We describe the Z/EVES system, which allows Z specifications to be analysed in a number of different ways. Among the significant features of Z/EVES are domain checking, which ensures that a specification is meaningful, and a theorem prover that includes a decision procedure for simple arithmetic and a heuristic rewriting mechanism that recognizes “obvious” facts.
