2000 RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications  
This paper offers characteristic formula constructions in the realtime logic L ν for several behavioural relations between (states of) timed automata.  ...  This also applies to the characteristic formula for timed bisimulation equivalence, for which an exponential space construction was previously offered by Laroussinie, Larsen and Weise.  ...  Laroussine, Larsen and Weise [19] have proposed a characteristic formula construction for timed automata up to timed bisimilarity.  ...

On characteristic formulae for Event-Recording Automata

Omer Landry Nguena Timo, Pierre-Alain Reynier
2013 RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications  
A standard bridge between automata theory and logic is provided by the notion of characteristic formula. This paper investigates this problem for the class of event-recording automata.  ...  An attempt to express in Event-recording logic (ERL) characteristic formula for timed simulation and bisimulation can be found in Sorea's thesis, but appears to be erroneous.  ...  Characteristic Formulae for Timed Bisimulation A characteristic formula characterising a location of an ERA up to timed bisimilarity should offer a description of: all the actions from the alphabet that  ...

For certain subclasses of automata we find analytic formulas for calculating these characteristics.  ...  Authors’ summary: “We propose an algorithm, easily realized on a computer, for the numerical determination of characteristics of the behavior (probability of change of action, mean time to change of action  ... 

On the Relationship between -automata and Temporal Logic Normal Forms

A. Bolotov
2002 Journal of Logic and Computation  
We consider the relationship between -automata and a specific logical formulation based on a normal form for temporal logic formulae.  ...  While this normal form was developed for use with execution and clausal resolution in temporal logics, we here show how it can represent, syntactically, -automata in a high-level way.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Damian Niwinsky, Igor Walukiewicz and Giacomo Lenzi for useful discussions, and anonymous referees for useful comments and suggestions.  ...

Kristin Y. Rozier, Moshe Y. Vardi
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We also define novel BDD variable orders based on tree decomposition of formula parse trees.  ...  We introduce a novel encoding of symbolic transition-based Büchi automata and a novel, "sloppy," transition encoding, both of which result in improved scalability.  ...  median model analysis time for the same formulas grows exponentially.  ...

On Improving Backwards Verification of Timed Automata (Extended Abstract)

Victor Braberman, Carlos López Pombo, Alfredo Olivero
2002 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Verification techniques for Timed Automata [2] built in tools like Kronos [7] are based on the fixpoint calculus of an appropriate operator.  ...  For instance, to verify logics like TCTL [1] over Timed Automata, it is usually required to obtain the set of states from which the system can evolve and reach a set of states satisfying a formula φ  ...  ✷ In many applications, it is not necessary to calculate the entire characteristic set of a formula like ∃✸φ.  ...

Limit Deterministic and Probabilistic Automata for LTL ∖ GU [chapter]

Dileep Kini, Mahesh Viswanathan
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
One consequence of our construction is a new, improved EX-PTIME model checking algorithm (as opposed to the previously known doubly exponential time) for Markov Decision Processes and LTL\GU formulae.  ...  Next, we observe that the automaton for ϕ ∈ LTL\GU can be seen as the composition of two limit deterministic automata: one automata for the formula ψ, where all the until-free subformulae of ϕ are replaced  ...  a set of LTL(F ,G) formula which accepts a relation that is not the characteristic relation but is "subsumed" by the characteristic relation of the set.  ...

Is there a best büchi automaton for explicit model checking?

František Blahoudek, Alexandre Duret-Lutz, Mojmír Křetínský, Jan Strejček
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 International SPIN Symposium on Model Checking of Software - SPIN 2014  
In this paper, we search for properties of Büchi automata that really influence the performance of explicit model checkers.  ...  As a result of these experiences, we gain a better insight into the characteristics of automata that work well with Spin.  ...  Column n indicates how many translations are successful within the allocated time. The automata columns show accumulated values of standard automata characteristics for all successful translations.  ...
