Efficient and scalable verification of nonlinear real arithmetic constraints is essential in many automated verification and synthesis tasks for hybrid systems, control algorithms, digital signal processors, and mixed analog/digital circuits. Despite substantial advances in verification technology, complexity issues with classical decision procedures for nonlinear real arithmetic are still a major obstacle for formal verification of real-world applications.
