Differential Dynamic Logic for Verifying Parametric Hybrid Systems

We introduce a first-order dynamic logic for reasoning about systems with discrete and continuous state transitions, and we present a sequent calculus for this logic. As a uniform model, our logic supports hybrid programs with discrete and differential actions. For handling real arithmetic during proofs, we lift quantifier elimination to dynamic logic. To obtain a modular combination, we use side deductions for verifying interacting dynamics. With this, our logic supports deductive verification of hybrid systems with symbolic parameters and first-order definable flows. Using our calculus, we prove a parametric inductive safety constraint for speed supervision in a train control system.
