Our group exists since 2009 at the Institute of Theoretical Informatics. The main research question is the practical application of logic, formal methods, specification and verification in software engineering. We are addressing the following research topics for the application of formal methods in software engineering:

  • Development and application of relational verification techniques
  • Proving information-flow properties
  • Methods to prove properties for voting schemes and further social choice algorithms
