What is STP?
STP is a constraint solver (also referred to as a decision procedure or
automated prover) aimed at solving constraints generated by program
analysis tools, theorem provers, automated bug finders, biology, cryptography, intelligent
fuzzers and model checkers.
STP has been used in many research projects
at Stanford, Berkeley, MIT, CMU and other universities. It is also
being used at many companies such as NVIDIA, some startup companies,
and by certain government agencies.
The input to STP are formulas over the theory of bit-vectors and
arrays (This theory captures most expressions from languages like
C,C++,Java, Verilog etc.), and the output of STP is a single bit of
information that indicates whether the formula is satisfiable or not.
If the input is satisfiable, then it also generates a variable
assignment to satisfy the input formula.
