MetiTarski, an automatic theorem prover for inequalities on real-valued elementary functions, can be used to verify properties of analog circuits. First, a closed form solution to the model of the circuit is obtained. We present two techniques for obtaining the closed form solution. One is based on piecewise linear modeling and the inverse Laplace transform. The other is based on small-signal analysis and transfer function theory. Second, the properties of interest are turned into a set of inequalities involving analytic functions, which are proved automatically using MetiTarski. We verify properties concerning oscillation and the change in gain due to component tolerances.
