Numeric Domains with Summarized Dimensions

Denis Gopan, Frank DiMaio, Nurit Dor, Thomas Reps and Mooly Sagiv

We introduce a systematic approach to designing summarizing abstract numeric domains from existing numeric domains. Summarizing domains use summary dimensions to represent potentially unbounded collections of numeric objects. Such domains are of benefit to analyses that verify properties of systems with an unbounded number of numeric objects, such as shape analysis, or systems in which the number of numeric objects is bounded, but large.
