Title: On Hoare Logic, Kleene Algebra, and Types
Authors: Kozen, Dexter
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Jul-1999
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: We show that propositional Hoare logic is subsumed by the type calculus of typed Kleene algebra augmented with subtypes and typecasting. Assertions are interpreted as typecast operators. Thus Hoare-style reasoning with partial correctness assertions reduces to typechecking in this system.
