Abstract
Mechanized formal methods that use both model checking and theorem proving seem to hold most promise for the future. Effective use of both technologies requires they be recast as methods for calculating properties of specifications, rather than merely verifying them. The most valuable properties are those that contribute to the development of invariants and property-preserving abstractions. We outline an architecture for verification tools based on iterated use of such capabilities.
