Geldenhuys and Hansen showed that a kind of ω-automata known as Testing Automata (TA) can, in the case of stuttering-insensitive properties, out-perform the Büchi automata traditionally used in the automata-theoretic approach to model checking [10]. In previous work [23], we compared TA against Transition-based Generalized Büchi Automata (TGBA), and(More)
In a previous work, we showed that a kind of ω-automata known as Transition-based Generalized Testing Automata (TGTA) can outperform the Büchi automata traditionally used for explicit model checking when verifying stutter-invariant properties. In this work, we investigate the use of these generalized testing automata to improve symbolic model checking of(More)
An alternative to the traditional Büchi Automata (BA), called Testing Automata (TA) was proposed by Hansen et al. [8, 6] to improve the automata-theoretic approach to LTL model checking. In previous work [2], we proposed an improvement of this alternative approach called TGTA (Generalized Testing Automata). TGTA mixes features from both TA and TGBA(More)
—In automata-theoretic model checking, there are mainly two approaches: explicit and symbolic. In the explicit approach [1], the state-space is constructed explicitly and lazily during exploration (i.e., on-the-fly). The symbolic approach [2] tries to overcome the state-space explosion obstacle by symbolically encoding the state-space in a concise way using(More)
