Property Directed Reachability (PDR) is a very promising recent method for deciding reachability in symbolically represented transition systems. While originally conceived as a model checking algorithm for hardware circuits, it has already been successfully applied in several other areas. This paper is the first investigation of PDR from the perspective of(More)
We examine the existing resolution systems for quantified Boolean formulas (QBF) and answer the question which of these calculi can be lifted to the more powerful Dependency QBFs (DQBF). An interesting picture emerges: While for QBF we have the strict chain of proof systems Q-Res < IR-calc < IRM-calc, the situation is quite different in DQBF. Q-Res and(More)
A panel of 23 real-time PCR assays based on TaqMan technology has been developed for the detection and monitoring of 16 different viruses and virus families including human polyomaviruses BK virus and JC virus, human herpesviruses 6, 7, and 8, human adenoviruses, herpes simplex viruses 1 and 2, varicella-zoster virus, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus,(More)
Adenoviruses (AdV) can cause life-threatening infections in immunosuppressed patients. Reliable diagnostic tests are therefore of paramount importance. Apparently, any of the six AdV species (A to F), currently comprising 51 different serotypes, can play a clinically important role in patients with impaired immune response. It is imperative therefore that(More)
Introduction Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) or "quantum cryptography" is a Quantum Mechanics based cryptographic primitive, which, in principle, holds the potential of absolutely secure communication, which can not be compromised by any eavesdropping technique. The strength of the QKD primitive is the simultaneous generation of two identical bit streams at(More)
This paper introduces a new decision procedure for PLTL based on labelled superposition. Its main idea is to treat temporal formulas as infinite sets of purely propositional clauses over an extended signature. These infinite sets are then represented by finite sets of labelled propositional clauses. The new representation enables the replacement of the(More)
