On-the-Fly Mean-Field Model-Checking for Attribute-Based Coordination [chapter]

Vincenzo Ciancia, Diego Latella, Mieke Massink
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A promising technique is Fast Mean-Field Approximated Model-checking.  ...  The FlyFast model-checker uses an on-the-fly algorithm for bounded PCTL model-checking of selected individuals in the context of very large populations whose global behaviour is approximated using deterministic  ...  In this paper we have presented a attribute-based coordination modelling language as a front-end for FlyFast, an on-the-fly mean-field model-checker for bounded PCTL.  ...

On-the-fly PCTL fast mean-field approximated model-checking for self-organising coordination

Diego Latella, Michele Loreti, Mieke Massink
2015 Science of Computer Programming  
The proposed procedure combines on-the-fly model-checking techniques with deterministic mean-field approximation in discrete time.  ...  The asymptotic correctness of the procedure is proven and a prototype implementation of the model-checker is presented.  ...  Section 6 shows the application of the FlyFast model-checker on a case study from the field of self-organised systems.  ...

On Formal Methods for Collective Adaptive System Engineering. Scalable Approximated, Spatial Analysis Techniques. Extended Abstract

Diego Latella
2016 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this extended abstract a view on the role of Formal Methods in System Engineering is briefly presented.  ...  The first technique is Scalable Approximated Population DTMC Model-checking. The second one is Spatial Model-checking for Closure Spaces.  ...  To the best of our knowledge, this is the first implementation of an on-the-fly mean field model-checker for discrete time, probabilistic, time-synchronous models.  ...

On-the-fly Probabilistic Model Checking

Diego Latella, Michele Loreti, Mieke Massink
2014 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
The correctness of the procedure is shown and its efficiency is compared with a global PCTL model checker on representative applications.  ...  Model checking approaches can be divided into two broad categories: global approaches that determine the set of all states in a model M that satisfy a temporal logic formula f, and local approaches in  ...  are absorbing; 2) we use an instantiation of the prototype on-the-fly PCTL model checker FlyFast on an automata based language and semantics such as that used in the PRISM model checker which in turn  ...

by first defining a reference feature model and then adding feature attributes and global quantitative constraints, in the form of a Clafer attributed feature model.  ...  Engineering a Collective Adaptive System (CAS) requires the support of a framework for quantitative modeling and analysis of the system.  ...  Similar to the current paper, the Clafer toolset is used for variability analysis on BSS configurations, whereas the recently developed mean field model checker FlyFast [12] is used for performance analyses  ...
