Eleventh Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 1996)

Paper: Efficient model checking via the equational mu-calculus (at LICS 1996)

Authors: Girish Bhat Rance Cleaveland

Abstract

This paper studies the use of an equational variant of the modal mu-calculus as a unified framework for efficient temporal logic model checking. In particular we show how an expressive temporal logic, CTL*, may be efficiently translated into the mu-calculus. Using this translation, one may then employ mu-calculus model-checking techniques, including on-the-fly procedures, BDD-based algorithms and compositional model-checking approaches, to determine if systems satisfy formulas in CTL*.
