Yes, the Miprac compiler, a multilingual parallelizing compiler (for C,
Lisp, Fortran, etc) by W.L. Harrison and Z.Ammarguellat at CSRD uses a
very compilicated abstract interpretation for obtaining side-effects, data
dependences and object lifetimes information, for both numerical and
symbolic programs. For an overview of this compiler, see

        "A Program's Eye View of Miprac", Williams L. Harrison and
        Zahira Ammarguellat, in proc. 5th Workshop on Languages and Compilers
