Fri 25 Jun 2021 01:40 - 01:45 at PLDI-A - Talks 4A: Analysis and Synthesis

We describe the first approach to automatically synthesizing heap-manipulating programs with auxiliary recursive procedures. Such procedures occur routinely in data structure transformations (e.g., flattening a tree into a list) or traversals of composite structures (e.g., n-ary trees). Our approach, dubbed cyclic program synthesis, enhances deductive program synthesis with a novel application of cyclic proofs. Specifically, we observe that the machinery used to form cycles in cyclic proofs can be reused to systematically and efficiently abduce recursive auxiliary procedures.

We develop the theory of cyclic program synthesis by extending Synthetic Separation Logic (SSL), a logical framework for deductive synthesis of heap-manipulating programs from Separation Logic specifications. We implement our approach as a tool called Cypress, and showcase it by automatically synthesizing a number of programs manipulating linked data structures using recursive auxiliary procedures and mutual recursion, many of which were beyond the reach of existing program synthesis tools.
