    We present the first experimental results on the implementation of a multi-core model checking algorithm for the SPIN model checker. These algorithms specifically target shared-memory systems, and are initially restricted to dual-core systems. The extensions we have made require only small changes in the SPIN source code, and preserve virtually all existing verification modes and optimization techniques supported by SPIN, including the verification of both safety and liveness properties and the verification of SPIN models with embedded C code fragments.
