Formal Methods and Tools

In the Formal Methods and Tools (FMT) research group, formal techniques and tools are developed and used as a means to support the development of software. Formal methods are mathematical techniques for the construction and analysis of software systems. Our central goal is to increase the reliability of the software that we rely on, as individuals and as society. We primarily target complex concurrent ICT systems, embedded in a technological context or in a distributed environment.

The FMT group is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) at the University of Twente. The FMT group also participates in the research institute CTIT.

VENI grant for Arnd Hartmanns: Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems

Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems: Exploiting Uncertainty for Scalability
Dr. ir. Arnd Hartmanns, UT – Computer Science (EWI/CTIT/FMT)
Computers control our physical world: in self-driving cars, smart power grids, or manufacturing robots. We must verify that such systems work even when faced with unexpected and random events. This research will deliver practical mathematical verification methods which take advantage of the very randomness that challenges the control algorithms.
