Not sure what theory that would be. The basic idea is well known
and pretty straight forward:
1. Try to prove that the assert holds by feeding the function
into an external prover.
2. If it fails, retain the assert in the code or omit it.
3. If it succeeds, replace the assert with an «assume(…)»
You can do this today if you want to.
The challenge is to make sure that the optimizer will make good
use of it.
