Scalable Hardware Verification with Symbolic Simulation presents recent advancements in symbolic simulation-based solutions which radically improve scalability. It overviews current verification techniques, both based on logic simulation and formal verification methods, and unveils the inner workings of symbolic simulation. The core of this book focuses on new techniques that narrow the performance gap between the complexity of digital systems and the limited ability to verify them. In particular, it covers a range of solutions that exploit approximation and parametrization methods, including quasi-symbolic simulation, cycle-based symbolic simulation, and parameterizations based on disjoint-support decompositions.
In structuring this book, the author’s hope was to provide interesting reading for a broad range of design automation readers. The first two chapters provide an overview of digital systems design and, in particular, verification. Chapter 3 reviews mainstream symbolic techniques in formal verification, dedicating most of its focus to symbolic simulation. The fourth chapter covers the necessary principles of parametric forms and disjoint-support decompositions. Chapters 5 and 6 focus on recent symbolic simulation techniques, and the final chapter addresses key topics needing further research.

iOS Development using MonoTouch Cookbook
Technology is advancing quite rapidly. Portable devices, such as media players, smartphones, and tablets, have brought huge advancements and changes in the way people communicate, share, and consume digital content. Developers need to be up-to-date with the available platforms these devices work on, if they want to be "part of the...
Zamba: The True Story of the Greatest Lion That Ever Lived
When Ralph Helfer, now one of Hollywood's top animal behaviorists, first began working, he was shocked by the cruelty that was accepted practice in the field. He firmly believed in "affection training" -- that love, not fear, should be the basis of any animal's development, even when dealing with the most dangerous of...
Developer's Guide to Microsoft Prism 4
Building WPF and Silverlight applications can be challenging, especially for those new to
the technology. Building clean, maintainable, extensible, testable, loosely coupled ones—
with no idea where to start—is close to impossible. In late 2007, I was privileged to get a
call from Glenn Block at Microsoft asking if I was...
