Controller synthesis techniques for continuous systems with respect to temporal logic specifications typically use a finite-state symbolic abstraction of the system. Constructing this abstraction for the entire system is computationally expensive, and does not exploit natural decompositions of many systems into interacting components. We have recently introduced a new relation, called (approximate) disturbance bisimulation for compositional symbolic abstraction to help scale controller

Given any stochastic control system satisfying a stochastic version of the incremental input-to-state stability property and a positive error bound, we show how to construct a finite-state transition system (if there exists one) which is disturbance bisimilar to the given stochastic control system. Given a network of stochastic control systems, we give conditions on the simultaneous existence of disturbance bisimilar abstractions to every component allowing for compositional abstraction of the network system.
