Third Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 1988)

Paper: Weak alternating automata give a simple explanation of why most temporal and dynamic logics are decidable in exponential time (at LICS 1988)

Authors: David E. Muller Ahmed Saoudi Paul E. Schupp

Abstract

The authors give a very simple uniform explanation of the persistence of exponential decidability. They follow M. Vardi and P. Wolper's theory (1986) that given a formula γ of a temporal or dynamic logic, it is important to construct an equivalent automation Mγ. They characterize the weak monadic theory of the tree; it turns out that weak alternating automata greatly simplify design procedures
