Progress on the State Explosion Problem in Model Checking [chapter]

Edmund Clarke, Orna Grumberg, Somesh Jha, Yuan Lu, Helmut Veith
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This phenomenon is commonly called the "State Explosion Problem".  ...  Over the past ten years considerable progress has been made on this problem by (1) representing the state space symbolically using BDDs and by (2) using abstraction to reduce the size of the state space  ...  Despite the success of symbolic methods, the state explosion problem remains a major hurdle in applying model checking to large industrial designs.  ...

Towards model checking of computer games with Java PathFinder

Nastaran Shafiei, Franck van Breugel
2013 2013 3rd International Workshop on Games and Software Engineering: Engineering Computer Games to Enable Positive, Progressive Change (GAS)  
To model check Java games, we need to tackle the state space explosion problem and handle native calls.  ...  The former deals with the randomization in the source code of the game, which is a cause of the state space explosion problem. The latter handles native calls automatically.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank Chris Kingsley, Daniel Kroening and Peter Mehlitz for discussion and Steven Xu and Xin Zhang for their help with the development of jpfprobabilistic.  ...

Modelling of Genetic Regulatory Mechanisms with GReg [article]

Nicolas Sedlmajer, Didier Buchs, Steve Hostettler, Alban Linard, Edmundo Lopez, Alexis Marechal
2011 arXiv   pre-print
We propose in this article an approach based on DSL. It provides a comprehensible language to describe the system while allowing the use of complex and powerful underlying model checking techniques.  ...  On the contrary, techniques such as model checking, coming from IT-systems analysis, explore all the possible behaviours of the modelled systems, thus helping to identify emergent properties.  ...  It is interesting to note that this problem is well-known to the model checking community in computer science, where it is called the state space explosion.  ...

Partial-order model checking: A guide for the perplexed [chapter]

David K. Probst, Hon F. Li
1992 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We answer the question, is it poss~le to control state explosion arising from various sources during automatic verification (model checking) of delay-insensitive systems?  ...  State explosion due to concurrency is handled by introducing a partial-order representation for processes, and defining system correctness as a simple relation between two partial orders on the same set  ...  state-explosion problem based on causality checking.  ...

Probabilistic and Hybrid Model Checking Deployments for Wireless Sensor Networks

Mohsin Memon, Sania Bhatti, Sheeraz Memon
2012 Mehran University Research Journal of Engineering and Technology  
Model checking involves verifying a system\'s properties based on the system\'s finite state model.  ...  The paper has also highlighted the problems of existing model checking tools within WSN domain.  ...  If the model being checked has increased space state, it gives rise to the state explosion problem [4] .  ...

On-Line Model Checking as Operating System Service [chapter]

Franz J. Rammig, Yuhong Zhao, Sufyan Samara
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Instead of exploring the entire state space of the model to be checked, only a partial state space at model level covering the execution trace of the checked task is explored.  ...  This on-line model checking can be seen as an extension to the traditional schedulability acceptance test which is needed anyway in systems with dynamic task set.  ...  On the other hand, model checking is substantially confronted with the so called state explosion problem.  ...

Mechanized formal methods: Progress and prospects [chapter]

1996 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the decade of the 1990s, formal methods have progressed from an academic curiosity at best, and a target of ridicule at worst, to a point where the leading manufacturer of microprocessors has indicated  ...  In this short paper, I sketch a plausible history of the developments that led to this transformation, present a snapshot of the current state of the practice, and indicate some promising directions for  ...  The state explosion" problem is likely to hit at this point, and reduction methods based on symmetry, partial orders, or abstraction may need to be invoked.  ...

2014 Proceedings of the 36th International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE 2014  
Both symbolic model checking and assume-guarantee reasoning aim to circumvent the state explosion problem.  ...  It outperforms monolithic symbolic model checking in four benchmark problems and an industrial case study in experiments.  ...  The state explosion problem greatly impedes the effectiveness of model checking. Symbolic model checking 1 is a well-known technique for ameliorating the state explosion problem [7, 18] .  ...

Reducing State Explosion with Context Modeling for Model-Checking

Philippe Dhaussy, Jean-Charles Roger, Frederic Boniol
2011 2011 IEEE 13th International Symposium on High-Assurance Systems Engineering  
This paper deals with the problem of the usage of formal techniques, based on model checking, where models are large and formal verification techniques face the combinatorial explosion issue.  ...  We propose to specify the context in which the behavior occurs using a language called CDL (Context Description Language), based on activity and message sequence diagrams.  ...  If for a given context, we face state explosion, the accessibility analysis or model-checking is not possible.  ...
