Marimba: A Tool for Verifying Properties of Hidden Markov Models [chapter]

Noé Hernández, Kerstin Eder, Evgeni Magid, Jesús Savage, David A. Rosenblueth
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The formal verification of properties of Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) is highly desirable for gaining confidence in the correctness of the model and the corresponding system.  ...  A significant step towards HMM verification was the development by Zhang et al. of a family of logics for verifying HMMs, called POCTL*, and its model checking algorithm.  ...  Introduction A Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is an extension of a Discrete Time Markov Chain (DTMC) where the states of the model are hidden but the observations are visible.  ...

2021 2021 IEEE 93rd Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC2021-Spring)  
In this paper, we propose a model for estimating that valuation. The model is based on Markov chain modeling of user behavior, to compute the MNO satisfaction as a function of the obtained spectrum.  ...  With those assumptions, the pair (i, j) of numbers of connected users of each type is a Markov process [20] .  ...  In [14] the authors propose a model based on user satisfaction in order to compute the economic valuation.  ...
