By Edmund M. Clarke (auth.), Orna Grumberg, Helmut Veith (eds.)

Model checking know-how is without doubt one of the optimal functions of common sense to machine technology and laptop engineering. The version checking neighborhood has accomplished many breakthroughs, bridging the distance among theoretical computing device technological know-how and and software program engineering, and it's achieving out to new difficult parts reminiscent of procedure biology and hybrid structures. version checking is greatly utilized in the and has additionally been utilized to the verification of many varieties of software program. version checking has been brought into machine technological know-how and electric engineering curricula at universities all over the world and has turn into a common device for the research of systems.

This Festschrift quantity, released in social gathering of the twenty fifth Anniversary of version Checking, encompasses a number of eleven invited papers according to talks on the symposium "25 Years of version Checking", 25MC, which was once a part of the 18th foreign convention on desktop Aided Verification (CAV 2006), which in flip used to be a part of the Federated good judgment convention (FLoC 2006) held in Seattle, WA, united states, in August 2006.

Model checking is presently attracting enormous realization past the middle technical group, and the ACM Turing Award 2007 used to be given in reputation of the paradigm-shifting paintings in this subject initiated 1 / 4 century in the past. right here we honor that success with the inclusion of facsimile reprints of the visionary papers on version checking through Edmund Clarke and Allen Emerson, and by way of Jean-Pierre Queille and Joseph Sifakis.

Example text

An assertion of a branching time logic is interpreted over computation trees. The universal A (for all futures) and existential E (for some future) path quantifiers are important in this context. We can distinguish between AF P (along all futures, P eventually holds and is thus inevitable)) and EF P (along some future, P eventually holds and is thus possible). One widely used branching time logic is CTL (Computation Tree Logic) (cf. [CE81]). Its basic temporal modalities are A (for all futures) or E (for some future) followed by one of F (sometime), G (always), X (next-time), and U (until); compound formulae are built up from nestings and propositional combinations of CTL subformulae.
