Spec# is an experimental extension to C# that adds design-by-contract features. Contracts include method preconditions, postconditions, object invariants and history invariants. Contracts capture programmer intentions about how methods and data are to be used. The Spec# program verifier generates logical verification conditions from a Spec# program. Internally, it uses an automatic theorem prover that analyzes the verification conditions to prove the correctness of the program or find errors in it. In this lecture I will present Spec# and focus on how to verify invariants in the presence of callbacks, various forms of aliasing, and inheritance.
