@inproceedings{Kini2015LimitDA, title={Limit Deterministic and Probabilistic Automata for LTL ∖ GU}, author={Dileep Kini and Mahesh Viswanathan}, booktitle={TACAS}, year={2015} }

LTL i¾? GU is a fragment of linear temporal logic LTL, where negations appear only on propositions, and formulas are built using the temporal operators X next, F eventually, G always, and U until, with the restriction that no until operator occurs in the scope of an always operator. Our main result is the construction of Limit Deterministic Buchi automata for this logic that are exponential in the size of the formula. One consequence of our construction is a new, improved EXPTIME model checking…
