We show how Promela can be supported by the high-performance generic model checker LTSmin. The success of the Spin model checker has made Promela an important modeling language. SpinJa was created as a Java implementation of Spin, in an effort to make the model checker easily extendible and reusable while maintaining some of its efficiency. While these(More)
Effective risk management is a key to ensure that our nuclear power plants, medical equipment, and power grids are dependable; and it is often required by law. Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a widely used methodology here, computing important dependability measures like system reliability. This paper presents DFTCalc, a powerful tool for FTA, providing (1)(More)
Effective risk management is a key to ensure that vital assets like our nuclear power plants, medical equipment, and power grids are dependable. Also, risk management is often required by law.

Parity games are a type of game in which two players ’play’ on a directed graph. Solving parity games is equivalent to model checking for μ-calculus. Thus, parity game solvers can be used for model checking. This requires a lot of computational power. Many-core CPUs generally have much more computational power than other CPUs. The Playstation 3 contains an(More)
