DAHU: Databases and Verification

The need to access and exchange data on the Web has led to database management systems (DBMS) that are increasingly distributed and autonomous. Data extraction and querying on the Web is harder than in classical DBMS, because such data is heterogeneous, redundant, inconsistent and subject to frequent modifications. DBMS thus need to be able to detect errors, to analyze them and to correct them. Moreover, increasingly complex Web applications and services rely on DBMS, and their reliability is crucial. This creates a need for tools for specifying DBMS in a high-level manner that is easier to understand, while also facilitating verification of critical properties.

The study of such specification and verification techniques is the main goal of Dahu.
