The proof of the verification conditions is encoded in a machine readable formalism to allow automatic checking by the code consumer. The formalism used to express the proof is usually in the form of logic axioms and typing rules and must be chosen so that it is tractable to check the correctness of a given proof. In the PCC paradigm, certification is about generating a formal proof that the code adheres to a well-defined safety policy and validation consists in checking the generated proof is correct by using a simple and trusted proof-checker.

One flop unit is performed prior to a subroutine call which is followed by another unit. The size of argument and result checkpoints is assumed to be considerably smaller than that of the tapes. Refer also to footnotes 2 and 3. Split call tree reversal minimizes the number of flops performed by the forward calculation (6 flop units). However an image of the entire program execution (6 memory units) needs to fit into persistent memory which is infeasible for most relevant problems. This shortcoming is addressed by classical joint reversal (based solely on argument checkpointing).
