On temporal program verification rules. (English) Zbl 0563.68007
This paper suggests a slight extension of the usual temporal logical framework for the description and verification of programs. With this extension it is possible to give elegant and transparent formulations of proof rules for formulas expressing program properties. Besides the transcription of well-known rules the paper particularly deals with formulas containing the recently introduced atnext operator.
