I am trying to get the exhaustive list of validation checks a node performs when it hears about a new block. I am wading through the code to get this list.

I assume that other nodes validate the incoming blocks by making sure that block timestamp, merkle root hash, signatures, etc., are fine before appending the blocks to the chain.

Could someone point me to the appropriate file in the repo?
