Concrete Semantics: With Isabelle/HOL
by Tobias Nipkow, Gerwin Klein
Publisher: Springer 2016
Number of pages: 308
The book teaches the reader the art of precise logical reasoning and the practical use of a proof assistant as a surgical tool for formal proofs about computer science artefacts. The distinguishing feature is that all the mathematics has been formalised in Isabelle and much of it is executable.

This book applies the deductive method to programming by affiliating programs with the abstract mathematical theories. Specification of these theories, algorithms and theorems and lemmas describing their properties are presented together.
