This paper was written by three brilliant researchers in the 1970s, and it basically argues that we just shouldn't do verification at all. So it was quite controversial then---and it's still controversial to this day!
Maybe, then, it seems like a weird call to read this last. But this choice is very deliberate. Because this paper is---ironically---what got me so obsessed that I did my whole thesis in this research area. It really made me angry, honestly, that the authors assumed all of these problems were fundamental, and not solvable. So I got obsessed with solving them. And here I am.
Please note that this is due the morning before class, so that we can discuss it in person.
