Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 178)


The work described in this book has covered a wide spectrum from abstract architecture through VLSI design and layout, to formal specification and formal proof of correctness. We have:
  • described the abstract SECD architecture and shown how it supports execution of a high level functional language,

  • described the evolution of a realized system specification and hardware implementation,

  • presented the formal definitions of the specification and an implementation view of the realized system,

  • formalised the constraints under which the system is designed to function, and

  • shown the method of achieving a machine proof of correctness that the lower level correctly implements the top level specification.
