Chair of Algebraic and Logical Foundations of Computer Science

Lecture “Model Checking” (4/4/0)

Prof. Dr. Baier and Dr. Klüppelholz

Language: English

Description

Model Checking is a fully automatic verification method for reactive systems. This course provides an introduction to the main principles of model checking:

  • modeling reactive systems by transition systems
  • linear time properties and Büchi automata
  • linear temporal logic and automata-based model checking
  • computation tree logic

and selected topics of:

  • bisimulation and simulation relations
  • probabilistic and timed automata
  • partial order reduction, symbolic model checking

Dates

Thu 2. and 3. time slot [09:20 am – 12:40 pm] APB/E05
Fri 2. and 3. time slot [09:20 am – 12:40 pm] APB/E05

The first lecture will be held on Thursday, October 12th at 09:20 am. The date of the first tutorial will be announced in the lecture. There will be no fixed assignment of the lectures and exercises to time slots. The schedule for the lectures and tutorials will be announced every week.

The course consists of a (4/2/0) lecture with exercises for the theoretical foundations (October – December) and an introduction to model checkers with practical exercises (0/2/0) (January).

Prerequisites

For the course, basic knowledge on algorithms, complexity theory, automata theory and logic is presumed.
