See you later, alligator

Bye! The title of a 1950s rock-'n'-roll smash hit by Bill Haley and His Comets, the phrase was already in use, especially in the South. For a decade or more, hep/hip/with-it cats and chicks ended conversations with the phrase. The standard reply was the song's next line: “after a while, crocodile.”

We only overview two lines of work that are the most related to Aligator, and refer to (Kovacs, 2008) for more details.
Unlike this work, Aligator handles more general loops and uses no abstract interpretation.
Contrarily to this approach, Aligator generates polynomial and quantified invariants without the burden of a priori specified predicates.
The programming model of Aligator is restricted to P-solvable loops (Kovacs, 2008).
First, Aligator translates Figure 1(a) into Figure 1(b) by omitting test conditions.
We tested Aligator on a number of interesting examples coming from academic and open source benchmarks.
* Polynomial invariants have been inferred by Aligator in essentially no time, i.e.
* Quantified array invariants have been generated by Aligator on a large number of programs implementing array copies, shifts, initializations, and partitioning.
Polynomial invariants depending on loop guards are thus not inferred by Aligator. To this end, consider Figure 3(a).
Hence, loops with initializations, as given in Figure 4(a), are not P-solvable and cannot be handled by Aligator. A special class of P-solvable loops is the class of affine loops with no initializing assignments.
Another important expect of Aligator is that loop variables are abstracted to be rationals, so that algebraic techniques, such as Grobner basis computation, can be performed.
