Analysing the PGM protocol with UPPAAL

Béatrice Bérard *, Patricia Bouyer †, Antoine Petit
2004 International Journal of Production Research  
In Sections 3 and 4, we describe how a simplified model of the protocol is built, via a network of timed automata.  ...  We first propose a modelization of (a simplified version of) PGM via a network of timed automata.  ...  In addition, a clock tick and a new parameter ERROR_DELAY have been added to the receiver currently tested. The clock is reset each time the receiver updates its receive window.  ...

An Analyzable Model of Automated Service Negotiation

Aida Causevic, Cristina Seceleanu, Paul Pettersson
2013 2013 IEEE Seventh International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering  
We show how to analyze the negotiation model against timing, cost and utility constraints, by transforming it into the Timed Automata formal framework.  ...  Often, service negotiation proceeds with timing, cost and resource constraints, under which the users and providers exchange information on their respective goals, until reaching a consensus.  ...  Clock constraints are used as guards (g) for timed automata. χ(C) is used to denote the set of clock constraints, ranged over by guards g.  ...

Hendrik Kausch, Mathias Pfeiffer, Deni Raco, Bernhard Rumpe
2020 CEUR Workshop Proceedings  
Formal knowledge representation using higher-order logic and intelligent reasoning is shown to be applied to software engineering problems to perform correctness proofs, execute symbolic tests or find  ...  The theorem prover Isabelle is a mature and fundamental tool, which allows to represent knowledge as a collection of definitions and theorems and reason about systems.  ...  The unfair clock has to output nondeterministicially true or false (input and transition guards can be modeled in MontiArc [15] , but are not present in this component).  ...

Uniform Sampling for Timed Automata with Application to Language Inclusion Measurement [chapter]

Benoît Barbot, Nicolas Basset, Marc Beunardeau, Marta Kwiatkowska
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We improve over their work by employing a zone graph abstraction instead of the region graph abstraction and incorporating uniform sampling within a zone-based Monte Carlo model checking framework.  ...  The uniformity is defined with respect to volume measure of timed languages previously studied by Asarin, Basset and Degorre.  ...  Guards for a and b are the same in the two TAs. The blue part represents clock vectors reachable through entry zones by time elapsing.  ...

2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Acknowledgments We would like to thank the LTSmin and APRON developers for making their excellent code available to others in the research community.  ...  Timed Automata Timed automata are finite state machines with a finite set of real-valued, resettable clocks. Transitions between states can be guarded by constraints on clocks.  ...  Timed automata extended with variables can now be defined: l is the source location, g is an extended guard constraint over the clocks and discrete variables, a is the action, s is the update statement  ...

Similarly to the assumptions made by Puri, we restrict our analysis to the class of timed automata with closed guards, progress cycles, and bounded clocks.  ...  We propose an algorithm for the analysis of robustness of timed automata, that is, the correctness of a model in the presence of small drifts of the clocks.  ...  Timed automata are automata extended by clock variables that can be tested and reset.  ...

Timed Temporal Logics [chapter]

Patricia Bouyer, François Laroussinie, Nicolas Markey, Joël Ouaknine, James Worrell
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We survey expressiveness and algorithmic results on those logics, and discuss semantic choices that may look unimportant but do have an impact on the questions we consider.  ...  Since the early 1990's, classical temporal logics have been extended with timing constraints.  ...  To that aim, a fragment of L ν has been investigated [1] , which fully characterizes properties that can be expressed through a reachability query via test automata.  ...
