Tracing just-in-time compilers (TJITs) determine frequently executed traces (hot paths and loops) at run time. These traces are then analyzed and optimized, and ﬁnally specialized machine code is generated. Up to now, TJITs employed standard compiler construction algorithms to analyze and optimize traces. We propose to leverage automated theorem provers to optimize traces at run time.
