The sweep-line state space exploration method

Kurt Jensen, Lars M. Kristensen, Thomas Mailund
2012 Theoretical Computer Science  
The sweep-line method exploits intrinsic progress in concurrent systems to alleviate the state explosion problem in explicit state model checking.  ...  The concept of progress makes it possible to delete states from the memory during state space exploration and thereby reduce peak memory usage. The contribution of this paper is twofold.  ...  Acknowledgements The sweep-line method has been influenced by several co-authors of papers. In particular, we acknowledge the contributions of Jonathan Billington, Søren Christensen, Guy E.  ...

Combining the Sweep-Line Method with the Use of an External-Memory Priority Queue [chapter]

Sami Evangelista, Lars Michael Kristensen
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The sweep-line method is an explicit-state model checking technique that uses a notion of progress to delete states from internal memory during state space exploration and thereby reduce peak memory usage  ...  From the perspective of external memory state space exploration, we demonstrate experimentally that the state deletion performed by the sweep-line method may reduce the I/O overhead induced by duplicate  ...  In case of non-monotonic progress measures, the sweep-line method may therefore explore parts of the state space multiple times.  ...

A Sweep-Line Method for State Space Exploration [chapter]

Søren Christensen, Lars Michael Kristensen, Thomas Mailund
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a state space exploration method for on-the-fly verification. The method is aimed at systems for which it is possible to define a measure of progress based on the states of the system.  ...  Our experiments show significant reductions in both space and time used during state space exploration.  ...  For infinite-state systems the sweep-line method can be used to explore and analyse larger prefixes of the state space than can be done with ordinary state space exploration.  ...

Automated Generation of a Progress Measure for the Sweep-Line Method [chapter]

Karsten Schmidt
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the context of Petri nets, we propose an automated construction of a progress measure which is an important pre-requisite for a state space reduction technique called the sweep-line method.  ...  Our construction is based on linear-algebraic considerations concerning the transition vectors of the Petri net under consideration.  ...  The Sweep-Line Method First, we sketch the basic sweep-line method [CKM01] . At any snapshot during explicit state space exploration, we can distinguish three kinds of states.  ...

Formal specification and state space analysis of an operational planning process

Brice Mitchell, Lars Michael Kristensen, Lin Zhang
2007 International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT)  
State space analysis was conducted using full state spaces and the sweep-line state space reduction method.  ...  In the analysis step, we also investigated the use of the sweep-line method which exploits the progress present in systems to reclaim memory during state space exploration and thereby alleviate the state  ...  The choice of CP-nets as the modelling language in the project was based on the authors' experience with CP-nets from earlier projects [11, 12] in the area of operational planning.  ...

A Markov Decision Model for Area Coverage in Autonomous Demining Robot

Abdelhadi Larach, Cherki Daoui, Mohamed Baslam
2017 International Journal of Informatics and Communication Technology (IJ-ICT)  
This approach, called Goals to Goals Area Coverage on-line Algorithm, is based on a decomposition of the state space into smaller regions whose states are considered as goals with the same reward value  ...  In this work, we propose a new approach using Markov Decision Process to plan an optimum path to reach the general goal of exploring an unknown environment containing buried mines.  ...  States Space: Using the Grid method, the state space is therefore a set of grids, each grid cell has an associated value stating, obstacle, mine, free or goal state. c.  ...

Optimistic Simulated Exploration as an Incentive for Real Exploration [article]

Ivo Danihelka
2009 arXiv   pre-print
Many reinforcement learning exploration techniques are overly optimistic and try to explore every state. Such exploration is impossible in environments with the unlimited number of states.  ...  I propose to use simulated exploration with an optimistic model to discover promising paths for real exploration. This reduces the needs for the real exploration.  ...  I also wish to thank the community around the rl-list@googlegroups.com mailing list for provocative ideas and discussions.  ...

Postponed Updates for Temporal-Difference Reinforcement Learning

Harm van Seijen, Shimon Whiteson
2009 2009 Ninth International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications  
This paper presents postponed updates, a new strategy for TD methods that can improve sample efficiency without incurring the computational and space requirements of model-based RL.  ...  By recording the agent's last-visit experience, the agent can delay its update until the given state is revisited, thereby improving the quality of the update.  ...  In value iteration, the set of Bellman optimality equations is solved via iterative update sweeps through the state space.  ...
