dc.description.abstractThe formal analysis of programs with arrays is a notoriously difficult problem due largely to aliasing considerations. In this paper we augment the rules of Kleene algebra with tests (KAT) with rules for the equational manipulation of arrays in the style of schematic KAT. These rules capture and make explicit the essence of subscript aliasing, where two array accesses can be to the same element. We prove the soundness of our rules, as well as illustrate their usefulness with several examples, including a complete proof of the correctness of heapsort.en_US
