in Abstract State Machines, Alloy, B and Z, Second International Conference, ABZ 2010, Orford, QC, Canada, February 22-25, 2010. Proceedings (Eds. Marc Frappier and Uwe Glässer and Sarfraz Khurshid and R\'egine Laleau and Steve Reeves) Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol. 5977 (2010): 61--74 ISBN 978-3-642-11810-4

This paper presents AsmetaSMV, a model checker for Abstract State Machines (ASMs). It has been developed with the aim of enriching the ASMETA (ASM mETAmodeling) toolset, a set of tools for ASMs, with the capabilities of the model checker NuSMV to verify properties of ASM models written in the AsmetaL language. We describe the general architecture of AsmetaSMV and the process of automatically mapping ASM models into NuSMV programs. As a proof of concepts, we report the results of using AsmetaSMV to verify temporal properties of various case studies of different characteristics and complexity.
