Verifying Single and Multi-mutator Garbage Collectors with Owicki-Gries in Isabelle/HOL.

Leonor Prensa Nieto and Javier Esparza

As an aplication of the formalised Owicki/Gries method in the theorem prover Isabelle/HOL, we present the verification of a safety property for incremental garbage collection algorithms.
