Our CSeq tool implements a novel sequentialization for C programs using pthreads, which extends the Lal/Reps sequential- ization to support dynamic thread creation.

Abstract

Sequentialization translates concurrent programs into equivalent nondeterministic sequential programs so that the different concurrent schedules no longer need to be handled explicitly. It can thus be used as a concurrency preprocessing technique for automated sequential program verification tools. Our CSeq tool implements a novel sequentialization for C programs using pthreads, which extends the Lal/Reps sequential- ization to support dynamic thread creation. CSeq now works with three different backend tools, CBMC, ESBMC, and LLBMC, and is competitive with state-of-the-art verification tools for concurrent programs.
