ABSTRACT
A formal verification system based on the use of automated reasoning techniques is described to validate fault tolerance. An extended Petri net representation, called a flow net, is described together with the theorem-proving implementation of a rule-based system for manipulating system descriptions. Examples taken from the literature are used to illustrate the representation and the capabiliti
