Abstract

We give a simple relation-algebraic semantics of read and write operations on associative arrays. The array operations seamlessly integrate with assignments in the Hoare-logic library. Using relation algebras and Kleene algebras we verify the correctness of an array-based implementation of disjoint-set forests with a naive union operation and a find operation with path compression.
