"Sophisticated Program Analysis, Declaratively" (SPADE)

Start date: 01 Jan 2013, End date: 31 Dec 2017,

"Static program analysis is a fundamental computing challenge. We have recently demonstrated significant advantages from expressing analyses for Java declaratively, in the Datalog language. This means that the algorithm is in a form that resembles a pure logical specification, rather than a step-by-step definition of the execution. The declarative specification does not merely cover the main logic ...
