This paper is a self-contained introduction to the theory of finite-state automata on infinite words. The study of automata on infinite inputs was initiated by Buchi in order to settle certain decision problems arising in logic. Subsequently, there has been a lot of fundamental work in this area, resulting in a rich and elegant mathematical theory. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in these automata because of the fundamental role they play in the automatic verification of finite… Expand
Quantum ω-Automata over Infinite Words and Their Relationships
Inspired by the results of finite automata working on infinite words, we studied the quantum ω-automata with Büchi, Muller, Rabin and Streett acceptance condition. Quantum finite automata play aExpand
Computing the Width of Non-deterministic Automata
TLDR
It is shown that computing the width of an automaton is EXPTime-complete, which implies EXPTIME-completeness for multipebble simulation games on NFAs, and shows that checking whether a coB\"uchi automata is determinisable by pruning is NP-complete. Expand
EFFICIENT ALGORITHM TO TRANSFORM MINIMALIST SUBSET OF LTL FORMULA INTO FINITE STATE MODELS
TLDR
A subset of LTL formula is proposed which can be converted to Büchi automata whose the size is polynomial, which makes verification methods hard or even impossible to be implemented in practice. Expand
Converting A Subset of LTL Formula to Buchi Automata
The translation of LTL formula into equivalent Buchi automata plays an important role in many algorithms for LTL model checking, which consist in obtaining a Buchi automaton that is equivalent to theExpand
Revisiting MITL to Fix Decision Procedures
TLDR
It is shown that both satisfiability and model checking for MITLare Open image in new window, as was previously claimed, and a fragment of MITL is identified, called MITL WI, that is richer than \(\texttt {MITL}_{0,\!\infty }\), for which both satisfiable and model check are shown. Expand
Microcontroller Assembly Synthesis from Timed Automaton Task Specifications
TLDR
A method for the automatic refinement of single-task timed automaton specifications into microcontroller assembly code is proposed, which copes with parallel inputs and outputs, but is restricted to timedAutomaton specifications with only one clock variable that is reset after each transition. Expand
Decidability and complexity for ω-regular properties of stochastic systems
TLDR
A strong and a weak SAT algorithm for PQLTL, which can reason about any semialgebraic constrain over probabilities of paths of a Markov chain satisfying a QLTL formulae, is devised and derived. Expand
A notion of dissipativity for discrete event systems

  • 2016
TLDR
The concept of dissipativity is taken and applies to discrete event systems (DES) by replacing the notion of time with an event-based definition, and properties of dissipative DES are shown that connect with existing notions of stability for DES as would be expected from the classical definition. Expand
Modal Scenarios as Automata
TLDR
Here MSSs are presented, in which the notion of temperature is adopted from LSCs, replacing traditional acceptance conditions, and may encode more general patterns than those inherent in LSC, such as loops, alternatives and breaks. Expand
Global Exponential Stabilization of Language Constrained Switched Linear Discrete-Time System Based on the S-procedure Approach
TLDR
A technique in linear matrix inequalities called S-procedure is employed to provide sufficient conditions of GES which are less conservative than the existing Lyapunov-Metzler condition, and a more flexible result is obtained such that stabilization path at each moment might be multiple. Expand

Asynchronous Cellular Automata for Infinite Traces
TLDR
This paper provides another characterization of this family of recognizable languages of infinite traces using asynchronous cellular automata (which carry the most intuitive idea of finite suite concurrent machines), and gives effective constructions for c-rational operations on these automata, which are of independent interest.

This chapter discusses the formulation of two interesting generalizations of Rabin's Tree Theorem and presents some remarks on the undecidable extensions of the monadic theory of the binary tree. Expand
Reasoning About Infinite Computations
TLDR
This work investigates extensions of temporal logic by connectives defined by finite automata on infinite words and shows that they do not increase the expressive power of the logic or the complexity of the decision problem. Expand
Testing and Generating Infinite Sequences by a Finite Automaton
TLDR
Two apparently divergent areas of inquiry should give rise to the same problem, namely, that of describing the infinite history of finite automata, and it is this problem to which the remainder of this paper will address itself. Expand
Progress measures for complementation omega -automata with applications to temporal logic

TLDR
It is shown that a graph-theoretic approach based on the notion of progress measures is a potent tool for complementing omega -automata, and that the powerful temporal logic ETLs is much more tractable than previously thought. Expand
The Complementation Problem for Büchi Automata with Appplications to Temporal Logic
TLDR
This work uses a construction that involves only an exponential blow-up in the size of the automaton to prove a polynomial space upper bound for the propositional temporal logic of regular events and to prove the complexity hierarchy result for quantified propositionalporal logic. Expand
Decidability of second-order theories and automata on infinite trees
Introduction. In this paper we solve the decision problem of a certain secondorder mathematical theory and apply it to obtain a large number of decidability results. The method of solution involvesExpand

It is proved that the satisfiability problem for propositional dynamic logic of looping and converse is elementarily decidable and deterministic two- way automata on infinite trees are defined and it is shown how they can be simulated by nondeterministic one-way automata. Expand

The finding is that Büchi, Streett, and EL automata span a spectrum of succinctness, and it is shown that the decision problem for ETL, where temporal connectives are represented byEL automata, is EXPSPACE-complete, and the decision problems for ETRL and S are PSPACE- complete. Expand
