Effect of Fairness in Model Checking of Self-stabilizing programs Jingshu Chen, Fuad Abujarad and Sandeep Kulkarni

Problem Statement Related work Our approach Results Summary

4
To verify self-stabilizing programs by symbolic model checking stabilization: – ability of a system to converge in finite number of steps from arbitrary states to desired state. – complex algorithm Symbolic model checking: doesn’t require the designer to have considerable experience in logic reasoning.

5
Two actions: x0= xn -> x0=(x0+1) mod K xi!=xi-1 ->xi=x(i-1) Note that: the domain of x is [0,..,K-1] This program is known to be self- stabilizing if K>N. In subsequent discussion, we let K=N+1. p0p0 p1p1 p2p2 p3p3 pnpn pn-1 pipi x0 xn xi xi-1 pi-1

6
Legal state: For Process 0 either x[0]=x[n] or x[0]=(x[n]+1) mod K For i=1.. N, either x[i-1]=x[i] or x[i-1]=x[i]+1 p0p0 p1p1 p2p2 p3p3 pnpn pn-1 pipi x0 xn xi xi-1 pi-1

7
T’s work has demonstrate feasibility of applying symbolic model checking for verifying self-stabilizing programs. The result shows that verification is feasible only for programs with a small number of process.

8
Observation: - the current approach is done under weak fairness computation; - current model checker focus on weak fairness in representation of fairness. Our approach is to verify self-stabilization under unfair computation.

9
Verification under weak fairness Two actions: x0= xn -> x0=(x0+1) mod K xi!=xi-1->xi=x(i-1)

Scalability of verifying self-stabilization can be significantly improved for the case where the program is correct self-stabilizing without fairness.

For the case where weak fairness is essential for self-stabilization, – Decomposition – Utilizing the weak version of stabilization-weak stabilization

This result also validates the suggestion in Gouda’s work that weak stabilization is easier to verify than self-stabilization.

15
If self-stabilization is possible without fairness then cost of verifying self-stabilization is substantially lower. This is the first paper that has shown feasibility of verifying the typical self-stabilizing programs, e.g., K-state program, with large number of processes. We also identify two approaches for those cases where weak fairness is essential for self- stabilization.
