The process of verifying a system’s behavior using mathematical formulas and models.
Formal verification is the process of using mathematical models to authenticate the behavior of a system characterized by algorithms. The process is both in-depth and requires advanced mathematical techniques to ensure that a mechanism is functioning as expected.
In the world of cryptos, formal verification entails scrutinizing various parts of the underlying cryptographic algorithms and mechanisms. As a result, blockchain networks are improved to better perform as expected rather than with gaps that allow breaching or malfunctions.
