Development of Correct Functional BSP programs

I am using the proof assistant Coq to develop correct BSML programs.
Such correct development is done by progressively transforming a functional specification into a program which use BSML parallel primitives or into an algorithmic skeleton for which we have a parallel implementation proved correct. Each transformation step is proved correct by the proof assistant using axiomatic description of BSML primitives semantics.

Coq development

I developed an environment for program calculation and some lemmas and mechanisms to help specification to skeleton transformations. The code, papers and research reports can be found here: https://traclifo.univ-orleans.fr/SDPP
