Combining Deduction and Algebraic Constraints for Hybrid System Analysis

We show how theorem proving and methods for handling real algebraic constraints can be combined for hybrid system verification. In particular, we highlight the interaction of deductive and algebraic reasoning that is used for handling the joint discrete and continuous behaviour of hybrid systems. We illustrate proof tasks that occur when verifying scenarios with cooperative traffic agents. From the experience with these examples, we analyse proof strategies for dealing with the practical challenges for integrated algebraic and deductive verification of hybrid systems, and we propose an iterative background closure strategy.
