Summary form only given. Hybrid automata are a widely used framework to model complex critical systems, where continuous physical dynamics are combined with discrete transitions. Application areas include automotive, railway, aerospace, and industrial production. The expressive power of Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) solvers can be used to symbolically model networks of hybrid automata, using formulas in the theory of reals. In this tutorial, we survey state-of-the-art SMT-based… CONTINUE READING
