Axiomatic semantics

Axiomatic semantics is an approach based on mathematical logic for proving the correctness of computer programs.[1] It is closely related to Hoare logic.

Axiomatic semantics define the meaning of a command in a program by describing its effect on assertions about the program state. The assertions are logical statements—predicates with variables, where the variables define the state of the program.
