Generic Methodology for Formal Verification of UML Models

K.H. Kochaleema, G. Santhosh Kumar
2022 Defence Science Journal  
Property specifications are derived from system requirements and corresponding Computational Tree Logic (CTL)/Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) model checking procedure verifies property entailment in LTS.  ...  The steep learning curve associated with formal methods is avoided through the automatic formal model generation and thus reduces the reluctance of using formal methods in software development projects  ...  Embedded systems do exhibit branching time and linear time behaviours during operation, and formal verification of LTL and CTL property specifications in one common methodology is very advantageous, especially  ...
