A Hierarchy of Equivalences for Probabilistic Processes [chapter]

Manuel Núñez, Luis Llana
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Finally, we relate these nine equivalences and provide either alternative characterizations or fully abstract denotational semantics.  ...  For each of these families we define three predicates over processes and tests (may-pass, must-pass, passp ) which induce three equivalences.  ...  Hierarchy of testing equivalences for PPA generative model we have a fully abstract denotational semantics based on probabilistic acceptance trees [28] .  ...

Uniform Logical Characterizations of Testing Equivalences for Nondeterministic, Probabilistic and Markovian Processes

Marco Bernardo
2009 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper we show that the logical characterizations of testing equivalences for fully nondeterministic processes, fully probabilistic processes, and fully Markovian processes without silent moves  ...  Unfortunately, this is not the case with the existing logical characterizations of the corresponding variants of testing equivalence, as they are based on different modal languages.  ...  Acknowledgement We thank Michele Loreti for some initial discussions on modal logics for testing equivalences.  ...

Extending Backward Compatibility of Probabilistic Testing via Coherent Resolutions

Marco Bernardo
2020 Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science  
Therefore, it is only partially backward compatible with testing equivalences for fully nondeterministic processes and for fully probabilistic processes.  ...  Testing equivalence for processes featuring both nondeterminism and probabilities is not insensitive to the moment of occurrence of nondeterministic or probabilistic choices among identical actions.  ...  nondeterministic, and with the testing equivalence of [13] on fully probabilistic processes only if tests are restricted to be fully probabilistic.  ...

Testing preorders for probabilistic processes can be characterized by simulations

Bengt Jonsson, Wang Yi
2002 Theoretical Computer Science  
The preorder is based on a notion of testing, where reÿnement corresponds to an improvement in the "worst-case" behavior of a process.  ...  There are several preorders that serve as criteria for reÿnement of an abstract transition system to a more concrete one.  ...  Svante Janson at the Department of Mathematics, Uppsala University, contributed signiÿcantly in the application the Hahn-Banach theorem in the proof of the main theorem.  ...

An Overview of Probabilistic Process Algebras and Their Equivalences [chapter]

Natalia López, Manuel Núñez
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Thus, we will review some of the theories based on bisimulation and testing semantics.  ...  First, we will explain the different interpretations of the probabilistic information included in this kind of models.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank the anonymous referees of this paper for the careful reading. Their very valuable comments have undoubtedly improved the quality of this survey.  ...

2004 Mathematical Reviews  
A fully abstract denotational semantics based on probabilistic acceptance trees is given. Finally, a sound and com- plete axiomatization is presented.  ...  Three alternative views (operational, deno- tational, and axiomatic) of the may, must, and may-must testing semantics have been given.  ... 

A survey of modal logics characterising behavioural equivalences for non-deterministic and stochastic systems

2008 Mathematical Structures in Computer Science  
In this paper we consider three different approaches to the definition of behavioral equivalences -bisimulation, testing, and trace -applied to three different classes of systems -nondeterministic, probabilistic  ...  In the probabilistic and Markovian cases we also address the issue of whether the probabilistic and temporal aspects should be treated in a local or global way and consequently whether the modal logic  ...  a fully abstract characterization of Markovian testing equivalence, which again is based on the canonical reactive tests.  ...

Tryon’ and Animesh Dey’ ABSTRACT: This paper discusses research to develop a computer modeling technique to predict the statistical behavior of fatigue in fully lamellar TiAl.  ...  One such aspect of con- cern is the large scatter (variation) in the fatigue response of the TiAl material characterization test.  ... 

A Theory of Testing for Markovian Processes [chapter]

Marco Bernardo, Rance Cleaveland
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A fully abstract characterization is developed to ease the task of establishing testing related relationships between Markovian processes.  ...  Our Markovian testing theory is shown to enjoy close connections with the classical testing theory of De Nicola-Hennessy and the probabilistic testing theory of Cleaveland-Smolka et al.  ...  Conclusion In this paper we have developed a testing theory for Markovian processes and we have provided a fully abstract characterization of it which simpli es the task of establishing preorder relationships  ...
