Paper: Two-way unary temporal logic over trees (at LICS 2007)

Authors: Mikołaj Bojańczyk

Abstract

We consider a temporal logic EF + F^-1 for unranked, unordered finite trees. The logic has two operators: EF_\varphi , which says "in some proper descendant \varphi holds", and F^-1 \varphi , which says "in some proper ancestor \varphi holds". We present an algorithm for deciding if a regular language of unranked finite trees can be expressed in EF + F^-1. The algorithm uses a characterization expressed in terms of forest algebras.
