We present a state equivalence that is defined with respect to a given CTL formula. Since it does not attempt to preserve all CTL formulas, like bisimulation does, we can expect to compute coarser equivalences. We use this equivalence to manage the size of the transition relations encountered when model checking a system of interacting FSMs. Specifically, the equivalence is used to reduce the size of each component FSM, so that their product will be smaller. We show how to apply the method,doi:10.1007/3-540-58179-0_65 fatcat:wysrwkpeafcp5dibb6zjv4vpum
