Real-Time Model Checking Is Really Simple

  title={Real-Time Model Checking Is Really Simple},
  author={Leslie Lamport},
It is easy to write and verify real-time specifications with existing languages and methods; one just represents time as an ordinary variable and expresses timing requirements with special timer variables. The resulting specifications can be verified with an ordinary model checker. This basic idea and some less obvious details are explained, and results are presented for two examples.
