ProB: an automated analysis toolset for the B method
International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer, 10, (2), . (doi:10.1007/s10009-007-0063-9).
We present ProB, a validation toolset for the B method. ProB's automated animation facilities allow users to gain confidence in their specifications. ProB also contains a model checker and a refinement checker, both of which can be used to detect various errors in B specifications. We describe the underlying methodology of ProB, and present the important aspects of the implementation. We also present empirical evaluations as well as several case studies, highlighting that ProB enables users to uncover errors that are not easily discovered by existing tools
