This book is a solid foundation of the most important formalisms used for specification and verification of reactive systems. In particular, the text presents all important results on m-calculus, w-automata, and temporal logics, shows the relationships between these formalisms and describes state-of-the-art verification procedures for them. It also discusses advantages and disadvantages of these formalisms, and shows up their strengths and weaknesses. Most results are given with detailed proofs, so that the presentation is almost self-contained. Includes all definitions without relying on other materialProves all theorems in detailPresents detailed algorithms in pseudo-code for verification as well as translations to other formalisms
Klaus Schneider is working since 10 years on the specification and verification of reactive systems. Starting as a research assistant in 1992 at the university of Karlsruhe, he worked on the verification of hardware circuits with higher order logic theorem provers. After receiving his PhD in 1996, he focused his research topics on design, specification, and verification of reactive systems. His research group made a lot of important contributions to still active research areas. The book is based on his habilitation in 2001. Since 2002, the author is professor in computer science at the university of Kaiserslautern.
