Question -1 For non deterministic program S and post condition R there are two main concerns: Does S TERMINATE? (Possible cases: always, sometimes, never) Des it terminate 1n R? (Possible cases: always, sometimes, never) 1a. List the seven different characterizations of a non deterministic program S with respect to these two concerns. 1b. Represent each of the above graphically (Hint – start with WP(S, TRUE), WLP(S, R) and WLP(S, ┐R) ) 1c. Represent each of the above as a predicate over WP(S, TRUE), WLP(S, R) and WLP(S, ┐R) Question-2 2a. Write a UNITY program for sorting an array A[0. .n]. Your program MUST express potential concurrencies. 2b . Prove that your program has a fixed point and that when the program reaches its fixed point the array A [1,,n] is sorted. What is your invariant? What is your well founded set?

P unless Q 3b . P is stable 3c. P is invariant 3 d. P ensures Q 3e . P leads to Q ( notation - P ->Q ) 3f . what are safety properties? What are progress properties? For each of following properties indicate whether it is a safety property or a progress property. Property Safety Progress P unless Q P is stable P is invariant P ensures Q P leads to Q Question 4 4a. is the following program guaranty termination under fairness? JUSTIFY your answer. {n > 0} Loopselect n>o => n:= n-2 or n>0 => n:= n+1 end loopselect ________________ 4b Write a UNITY program for a semaphore S....
