Study Guide


The midterm will cover material from the beginning of the semester up to, and including, the last class before it.

It will be closed books, notes, laptops and other electronic devices. However, you are allowed to bring up to 2 pages (one sheet front and back) of notes.

The exam will assume knowledge of all the required reading material listed in the Lectures section as well as solutions to exercises and homework assignments. (Recommended readings are excluded.) It is safe to assume that it will not delve into the details of the technical papers in the required readings.

The exam will contain a mix of true/false, multiple choice, short answer questions, and specification problems in Alloy and Lustre. The latter will focus on your general understanding of these languages and formal specification, not on your remembering the exact details of Alloy's or Lustre's syntax.
