BPR - Big proof

Several mechanical theorem provers and many  mechanized decision procedures are in routine use in  the computing industry.  The complexity of computer  chip designs allow design flaws to slip past unaided  human reasoning of even the most talented designers.  Bugs in fabricated chips can cost hundreds of millions  of dollars to fix. So microprocessor companies use  mechanized theorem proving to prove that critical parts  of designs implement the specified functionality.  In  this talk I will explain how one theorem prover is used  in several companies, including Intel, AMD , Centaur,  ARM , Oracle, and Rockwell Collins.
