Reviewed Hardware Design Verification: Simulation and Formal-Method Based Approaches, Lam, 2005. Digital logic design includes verification that the specification is met. This book covers the theory and application of industrial design verification based on simulation and formalism in about 600 pages with exercises for each chapter. Simulation utilizes a test bench and scenarios. Formalization encompasses mathematics and graph algorithms, decision diagrams, model checking and symbolic computation. Examples use Verilog hardware description language (HDL). Points to http://www.verilog.net/free.html to get started, and discusses value of tools such as waveform viewer, coverage, bug tracking, HDL linter, model checker and equivalence checker. Bibliography has 297 entries.
