Real-time Linux Summit 2018 – My slides


Here are the slides of my presentation in this year’s Real-time Linux Summit.

The title is “Mind the gap: between real-time Linux and real-time theory (Part I).” It is about the creation of a formal model for tasks on Linux, in the intersection of the viewpoint of real-time Linux developers and real-time researchers.

I received excellent feedback from the Linux community. There is interest in applying my method for the verification of the PREEMPT-RT kernel, even for areas that I was not expecting, like static code analysis.

For a computer scientist, seeing practical results of applying a formal method (automata) to a real and complex system is the proof that those long hours studying theory are not in vain :-).
