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.
