Starting from Robinson’s resolution principle I will develop the superposition framework for first-order logic. Superposition is the most promising candidate framework for the mechanisation of first-order logic today. It enables the development of efficient decision procedures for a variety of classical decidable subclasses of first-order logic, as well as the detection of new decidable classes. If the first-order formalisation of an application domain falls into a decidable class, or gets close to it, we very often can provide a scalable and efficient tool for the analysis/verification of properties. Example domains are security protocols, LAN infrastructures, data structures or transition systems.
