A Separation Logic to Verify Termination of Busy-Waiting for Abrupt Program Exit
Programs for multiprocessor machines commonly perform busy-waiting for synchronisation. In this paper, we make a first step towards proving termination of such programs. We approximate events by abrupt program termination and busy-waiting for events by busy-waiting to be abruptly terminated. We propose a separation logic for modularly verifying termination (under fair scheduling) of programs where some threads eventually abruptly terminate the program, and other threads busy-wait for this to happen.
