Loopus

A Tool for Computing Symbolic Bounds on Loops in C Programs

The current version of Loopus is available as binary (64 bit binary for Linux) or source code. Installation instructions can be found in the file INSTALL which is located in the archive. The file README shows how to run loopus.

Look here for details on the experimental evaluation of Complexity and Resource Bound Analysis of Imperative Programs using Difference Constraints (JAR 2017, to appear).

Look here for details on the experimental evaluation of Difference Constraints: An adequate Abstraction for Complexity Analysis of Imperative Programs (FMCAD 2015).

Look here for details on the experimental evaluation of A Simple and Scalable Static Analysis for Bound Analysis and Amortized Complexity Analysis (CAV 2014).
