veriT: An Open, Trustable and Efficient SMT-Solver

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5663)


This article describes the first public version of the satisfiability modulo theory (SMT) solver veriT. It is open-source, proof-producing, and complete for quantifier-free formulas with uninterpreted functions and difference logic on real numbers and integers.
