:definition
"For every expanded signature Sigma, the instance of Fixed_Size_BitVectors
with that signature is the theory consisting of all Sigma-models that
satisfy the constraints detailed below.
The sort (_ BitVec m), for m > 0, is the set of finite functions
whose domain is the initial segment [0, m) of the naturals, starting at
0 (included) and ending at m (excluded), and whose co-domain is {0, 1}.
To define some of the semantics below, we need the following additional
functions :
o _ div _, which takes an integer x ≥ 0 and an integer y > 0 and returns
the integer part of x divided by y (i.e., truncated integer division).
o _ rem _, which takes an integer x ≥ 0 and y > 0 and returns the
remainder when x is divided by y. Note that we always have the following
equivalence for y > 0: (x div y) * y + (x rem y) = x.
o bv2nat, which takes a bitvector b: [0, m) → {0, 1}
with 0 < m, and returns an integer in the range [0, 2^m),
and is defined as follows:
bv2nat(b) := b(m-1)*2^{m-1} + b(m-2)*2^{m-2} + ⋯ + b(0)*2^0
o nat2bv[m], with 0 < m, which takes a non-negative integer
n and returns the (unique) bitvector b: [0, m) → {0, 1}
such that
b(m-1)*2^{m-1} + ⋯ + b(0)*2^0 = n rem 2^m
The semantic interpretation [[_]] of well-sorted BitVec-terms is
inductively defined as follows.
- Variables
If v is a variable of sort (_ BitVec m) with 0 < m, then
[[v]] is some element of [[0, m-1) → {0, 1}], the set of total
functions from [0, m) to {0, 1}.
- Constant symbols
The constant symbols #b0 and #b1 of sort (_ BitVec 1) are defined as follows
[[#b0]] := λx:[0, 1). 0
[[#b1]] := λx:[0, 1). 1
More generally, given a string #b followed by a sequence of 0's and 1's,
if n is the numeral represented in base 2 by the sequence of 0's and 1's
and m is the length of the sequence, then the term represents
nat2bv[m](n).
The string #x followed by a sequence of digits and/or letters from A to
F is interpreted similarly: if n is the numeral represented in hexadecimal
(base 16) by the sequence of digits and letters from A to F and m is four
times the length of the sequence, then the term represents nat2bv[m](n).
For example, #xFF is equivalent to #b11111111.
- Function symbols for concatenation
[[(concat s t)]] := λx:[0, n+m). if (x < m) then [[t]](x) else [[s]](x - m)
where
s and t are terms of sort (_ BitVec n) and (_ BitVec m), respectively,
0 < n, 0 < m.
- Function symbols for extraction
[[((_ extract i j) s))]] := λx:[0, i-j+1). [[s]](j + x)
where s is of sort (_ BitVec l), 0 ≤ j ≤ i < l.
- Bit-wise operations
[[(bvnot s)]] := λx:[0, m). if [[s]](x) = 0 then 1 else 0
[[(bvand s t)]] := λx:[0, m). if [[s]](x) = 0 then 0 else [[t]](x)
[[(bvor s t)]] := λx:[0, m). if [[s]](x) = 1 then 1 else [[t]](x)
where s and t are both of sort (_ BitVec m) and 0 < m.
- Arithmetic operations
Now, we can define the following operations. Suppose s and t are both terms
of sort (_ BitVec m), m > 0.
[[(bvneg s)]] := nat2bv[m](2^m - bv2nat([[s]]))
[[(bvadd s t)]] := nat2bv[m](bv2nat([[s]]) + bv2nat([[t]]))
[[(bvmul s t)]] := nat2bv[m](bv2nat([[s]]) * bv2nat([[t]]))
[[(bvudiv s t)]] := if bv2nat([[t]]) = 0
then λx:[0, m). 1
else nat2bv[m](bv2nat([[s]]) div bv2nat([[t]]))
[[(bvurem s t)]] := if bv2nat([[t]]) = 0
then [[s]]
else nat2bv[m](bv2nat([[s]]) rem bv2nat([[t]]))
- Shift operations
Suppose s and t are both terms of sort (_ BitVec m), m > 0. We make use of
the definitions given for the arithmetic operations, above.
[[(bvshl s t)]] := nat2bv[m](bv2nat([[s]]) * 2^(bv2nat([[t]])))
[[(bvlshr s t)]] := nat2bv[m](bv2nat([[s]]) div 2^(bv2nat([[t]])))
Finally, we can define bvult:
[[bvult s t]] := true iff bv2nat([[s]]) < bv2nat([[t]])
"
:values
"For all m > 0, the values of sort (_ BitVec m) are all binaries #bX with m digits.
"
:notes
"After extensive discussion, it was decided to fix the value of
(bvudiv s t) and (bvurem s t) in the case when bv2nat([[t]]) is 0.
While this solution is not preferred by all users, it has the
advantage that it simplifies solver implementations. Furthermore,
it is straightforward for users to use alternative semantics by
defining their own version of these operators (using define-fun) and
using ite to insert their own semantics when the second operand is
0.
