Spartacus is a tableau prover for hybrid logic with global modalities. The key difference of Spartacus to other modal reasoners is the blocking technique used to achieve termination. Spartacus is the first system to implement pattern-based blocking, a novel blocking technique for converse-free modal and hybrid logics. Spartacus implements a number of optimizations, including both established and new techniques.
