[Frama-c-discuss] Average Problem

Your axiomatization of Sum is probably inadequate. It should be clear in 
your mind if Sum(a,i,j) includes also a[j] or not. Your axioms do not 
seem to be coherent with that respect.

I attach a very similar example coming from the test suite of Jessie 
(available in subdir tests/c of Why distribution).

The two lemmas sum3 and sum_footprint need some induction reasoning to 
be proved, so in the current state of technology in Frama-C + either 
Jessie or WP plugins, an interactive prover like Coq is needed to prove 
them. But you can safely admit them for the rest of the code.

Hope this helps,

- Claude
