Course plan

8 lectures

lectures, reading assignments and an examination seminar

Recommended for

The course was last given

Goals

After the course, the students will be able to:
* model computer algorithms, protocols, components or systems as (possibly augmented) labeled transition systems
* specify safety and liveness correctness criteria using a (probabilistic) temporal logic
* understand what it means for a model to verify a correctness property
* understand the advantages and limitations of automatic verification
* apply a representative tool for plain, timed and probabilistic transition systems

Prerequisites

Basic notions in automata theory and logic

Organization

lectures, reading assignments and examination seminar

Introduction to model checking and temporal logic. Discussion and application of explicit, symbolic (bdd, sat based, predicate abstraction, counter example guided abstraction), timed, probabilistic and statistical model checking.
