As I reflect on the support and encouragement that I have received in moving me toward the completion of this project, first in its dissertation form (Greer 2011) and now revised as a book, it brings me great joy to acknowledge those institutions, mentors, colleagues, friends, and family who have made this work a reality.

I am grateful for the institutional and financial support of The Pennsylvania State University, the College of the Liberal Arts, the departments of History and Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, the Penn State Institute of Arts and Humanities, The Pennsylvania State University Alumni Association, the Robert G. Price Program, the Charles and Harriett Pencak Endowment, the Mark and Lucy Stitzer Endowment, the Hill Fellowship, the Catholic Biblical Association, the Biblical Archaeology Society, the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research, and the Educational and Cultural Affairs division of the U.S. Department of State. I am also thankful for the support of my new colleagues and administrators at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. Thanks, too, are expressed for the helpful comments provided by my anonymous reviewers and for the folks at Brill in providing the opportunity to publish in the excellent CHANE series.

The most direct influence on my work has come from the individuals I am privileged to call my academic mentors: especially my two Doktorvaters, B. Halpern, in his creative capacity and interdisciplinary outlook, and Gary Knoppers, in his meticulous attention to detail and biblical and scholarly breadth, as well as my animal bone mentor Brian Hesse, who pushed me to think in new ways; also, Don Redford in his contagious excitement ranging from the Bible to Egypt, Gonzalo Rubio in all things Assyriological and otherwise, and Gary Pratico, my M.A. supervisor, who first introduced me to the next level of biblical scholarship. My gratitude to these individuals can scarcely be expressed here and I only hope to emulate the quality of their ongoing scholarship and, in the case of Brian, to carry on a little piece of his legacy; in his memory this work is dedicated.

Traditional software verification algorithms work by using a combination of Floyd-Hoare Logics, Model Checking and Abstract Interpretation, to check and infer suitable program invariants. However, these techniques are problematic in the presence of complex but ubiquitous constructs like generic data structures, first-class functions....
