Abstract. We describe an implementation and a proof of correctness
of binary decision diagrams (BDDs), completely formalized in Coq. This
allows us to run BDD­based algorithms inside Coq and paves the way for
a smooth integration of symbolic model checking in the Coq proof assis­
tant by using reflection. It also gives us, by Coq's extraction mechanism,
certified BDD algorithms implemented in Caml. We also implement and
prove correct a garbage collector for our implementation of BDDs inside
Coq. Our experiments show that this approach works in practice, and
is able to solve both relatively hard propositional problems and actual
industrial hardware verification tasks.
1 Introduction
Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs for short) [9] are a compact and canonical rep­
resentation of propositional formulae up to propositional equivalence, or equiv­
alently of Boolean functions. BDDs and related data structures are at the heart
of modern automated verification systems, based on model­checking [24] or on
