Final Exam Time: June 25 th, 2pm-4pm Location: TBD

3
Aim of the Lecture knowledge of a basic formalism for modeling timed systems basic understanding of verification algorithms for timed systems (useful for practical modeling and verification).

4
Example: Peterson's Algorithm flag[0], flag[1] (initialed to false) — meaning I want to access CS turn (initialized to 0) — used to resolve conflicts Process 0: while (true) { ; flag[0] := true; turn := 1; while flag[1] and turn = 1 do { }; ; flag[0] := false; } Process 1: while (true) { ; flag[1] := true; turn := 0; while flag[0] and turn = 0 do { }; ; flag[1] := false; }

Example: Peterson's Algorithm

7
Fischer's Protocol id — shared variable each process has it's own timer (for delaying) for correctness it is necessary that K2 > K1 Process i: while (true) { ; while id != 0 do {} delay K1; id := i; delay K2; if (id = i) { ; id := 0; }

8
Modeling Real Time Systems Two models of time: discrete time domain continuous time domain

9
Discrete Time Domain clock ticks at regular interval at each tick something may happen between ticks — the system only waits

10
Discrete Time Domain choose a fixed sample period ε all events happen at multiples of ε simple extension of classical models main disadvantage — how to choose ε ? big ε too coarse model low ε time fragmentation, too big state space usage: particularly synchronous systems (hardware circuits)

11
Continuous Time Domain time is modeled as real numbers delays may be arbitrarily small more faithful model, suited for asynchronous systems uncountable state space cannot be directly handled automatically by “brute force”

12
Timed Automata extension of finite state machines with clocks continuous real semantics limited list of operations over clocks automatic verification is feasible allowed operations: comparison of a clock with a constant reset of a clock uniform flow of time (all clocks have the same rate)

13
What is a Timed Automaton? an automaton with locations (states) and edges the automaton spends time only in locations, not in edges

14
What is a Timed Automaton? (2) real valued clocks (x, y, z) all clocks run at the same speed clock constraints can be guards on edges

15
What is a Timed Automaton? (3) clocks can be reset when taken an edge only a reset to value 0 is allowed

16
What is a Timed Automaton? (4) location invariants forbid to stay in a state too long invariants force taking an edge

17
Clock Constraints

18
Timed Automata Syntax

19
Semantics: Main Idea semantics is a state space (reminder: guarded command language, extended finite state machines) states given by: location (local state of the automaton) clock valuation transitions: waiting — only clock valuation changes action — change of location

20
Clock Valuations

21
Evaluation of Clock Constraints

22
Examples

23
Timed Automata Semantics

24
Example What is a clock valuation? What is a state? Find a run = sequence of states

25
Example

26
Example 2 What does the automaton do? Write an example of a run...

27
Examples construct a simple timed automata model of: a digital wristwatch with 4 modes: cycle through modes “intelligent” return to basic mode (after used, timeout,...) daily (morning) schedule: breakfast, transport, lecture,... (include minimal times necessary, deadlines,...)

28
Semantics: Notes the semantics is infinite state (even uncountable) the semantics is even infinitely branching

29
Reachability Problem Input: a timed automaton A, a location l of the automaton Question: does there exists a run of A which ends in l This problem formalises the verification of safety problems — is an erroneous state reachable?

30
Example How to do it algorithmically?

31
Reachability Problem Theorem ： The reachability problem is PSPACE-complete. Notes note that even decidability of the problem is not straightforward — remind that the semantics is infinite state decidability proved by region construction (to be discussed) completeness proved by general reduction from linearly bounded Turing machine (not discussed)

32
Region Construction Main idea: some clock valuations are equivalent work with regions of valuations instead of valuations finite number of regions

Region Graph

42
Operations on Regions To construct the region graph, we need the following operations: let time pass — go to adjacent region at top right intersect with a clock constraint (note that clock constraints define supersets of regions) if region is in the constraint: no change otherwise: empty reset a clock — go to a corresponding region

Approximations

51
Extensions For practical modeling we use several extensions: location invariants parallel composition of automata channel communication, synchronization integer variables These issues are solved in the ‘usual way’. Here we focused on the basic model, basic aspects dealing with time.

52
Example: Parallel Composition

53
Fischer's Protocol id — shared variable each process has it's own timer (for delaying) for correctness it is necessary that K2 > K1 Process i: while (true) { ; while id != 0 do {} delay K1; id := i; delay K2; if (id = i) { ; id := 0; }
