Model Checking Markov Chains with Actions and State Labels
TLDR
We introduce the logic as CSL which provides a powerful means to characterize execution paths of Markov chains with actions and state labels and show that even the state-based fragment of asCSL is strictly more expressive than CSL if time intervals starting at zero are employed. Expand

Multi Terminal Binary Decision Diagrams to Represent and Analyse Continuous Time Markov Chains
Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) have gained high attention in the context of design and veriication of digital circuits. They have successfully been employed to encode very large state spaces in anExpand

A tool for model-checking Markov chains
TLDR
We propose a model checker for discrete and continuous-time Markov chains, the Erlangen–Twente Markov Chain Checker E⊢MC2, where properties are expressed in appropriate extensions of CTL. Expand

Learning and Designing Stochastic Processes from Logical Constraints
Continuous time Markov Chains (CTMCs) are a convenient mathematical model for a broad range of natural and computer systems. As a result, they have received considerable attention in the theoreticalExpand
