    Synchronous languages are used to program critical control applications.
    The Scade language, used in industry for these applications, is based on
    the Lustre language introduced by Caspi and Halbwachs. In this article
    we treat the formalization and proof, in the Coq proof assistant, of a
    key compilation pass: the translation of programs from Lustre into an
    imperative language. The challenge is to change from a synchronous
    dataflow semantics, where programs manipulate streams, to an imperative
    semantics, where the program manipulates memory sequentially. We specify
    and verify a simple code generator that treats core Lustre features:
    sampling, nodes, and delays. The proof uses an intermediate semantic
    model that mixes dataflow and imperative characteristics and allows the
    statement of an essential inductive invariant. We exploit this
    formalization to verify a classic optimization that fuses conditional
    structures in the generated imperative code.

    The correct compilation of block diagram languages like Lustre, Scade,
    and a discrete subset of Simulink is important since they are used to
    program critical embedded control software. We describe the
    specification and verification in an Interactive Theorem Prover of a
    compilation chain that treats the key aspects of Lustre: sampling,
    nodes, and delays. Building on CompCert, we show that repeated execution
    of the generated assembly code faithfully implements the dataflow
    semantics of source programs.

    We resolve two key technical challenges. The first is the change from a
    synchronous dataflow semantics, where programs manipulate streams of
    values, to an imperative one, where computations manipulate memory
    sequentially. The second is the verified compilation of an imperative
    language with encapsulated state to C code where the state is realized
    by nested records. We also treat a standard control optimization that
    eliminates unnecessary conditional statements.

    Lustre is a synchronous language for programming systems as block
    diagrams from which low-level imperative code is generated
    automatically. Recent work applies the Coq interactive proof assistant
    to specify a compiler from a core subset of Lustre to the Clight input
    language of CompCert from which assembly code is generated. The overall
    correctness proof connects the stream semantics of Lustre to the
    imperative semantics of the assembly code.

    Every stream in a Lustre program is associated with a static ‘clock’
    that represents when it is active. Compilation transforms the clocks
    into conditional statements that control when the corresponding value
    are calculated. Previous work made the simplifying assumption that the
    inputs and outputs of any given block shared the same static clock. This
    paper describes one way to lift this restriction. It requires enriching
    the static typing rules for clocks and the semantic model, and, to
    satisfy the Clight semantics, adding a compilation pass to ensure that
    any variable passed to a function call has been initialized.

    Specifications based on block diagrams and state machines are used to
    design control software, especially in the certified development of
    safety-critical applications. Tools like SCADE Suite and
    Simulink/Stateflow are equipped with compilers that translate such
    specifications into executable code. They provide programming languages
    for composing functions over streams as typified by Dataflow Synchronous
    Languages like Lustre.

    Recent work builds on CompCert to specify and verify a compiler for the
    core of Lustre in the Coq Interactive Theorem Prover. It formally links
    the stream-based semantics of the source language to the sequential
    memory manipulations of generated assembly code. We extend this work to
    treat a primitive for resetting subsystems. Our contributions include
    new semantic rules that are suitable for mechanized reasoning, a novel
    intermediate language for generating optimized code, and proofs of
    correctness for the associated compilation passes.

    Lustre is a synchronous dataflow language designed for programming
    embedded systems. In the Vélus project, we use Coq to develop and
    formalize a compiler that accepts a normalized form of the language and
    produces imperative code. While this restricted form is suitable for
    code generated from a user interface based on block diagrams, we wanted
    to allow programmers to use the complete language.

    In this article, we present the normalization pass that transforms the
    complete language into the normalized one. This transformation is
    divided into three steps so as to simplify the correctness proofs. To
    show that the semantics is preserved, it is necessary to prove that the
    three steps preserve certain static and dynamic properties of the
    language. In particular, the relation between the clock types and the
    dynamic semantic must be established.

    Dataflow languages allow the specification of reactive systems by
    mutually recursive stream equations, functions, and boolean activation
    conditions called clocks. Lustre and Scade are dataflow languages for
    programming embedded systems. Dataflow programs are compiled by a
    succession of passes. This article focuses on the normalization pass
    which rewrites programs into the simpler form required for code
    generation.

    Vélus is a compiler from a normalized form of Lustre to CompCert's
    Clight language. Its specification in the Coq interactive theorem prover
    includes an end-to-end correctness proof that the values prescribed by
    the dataflow semantics of source programs are produced by executions of
    generated assembly code. We describe how to extend Vélus with a
    normalization pass and to allow subsampled node inputs and outputs. We
    propose semantic definitions for the unrestricted language, divide
    normalization into three steps to facilitate proofs, adapt the clock
    type system to handle richer node definitions, and extend the end-to-end
    correctness theorem to incorporate the new features. The proofs require
    reasoning about the relation between static clock annotations and the
    presence and absence of values in the dynamic semantics. The
    generalization of node inputs requires adding a compiler pass to ensure
    the initialization of variables passed in function calls.
