-Calculus -Calculus is a temporal logic which consist of the following: Atomic properties AP Boolean connectives: , , Precondition operator: EX Least and greatest fixpoint operators: y. F y and y. F y –F must be syntactically monotone in y meaning that all occurrences of y in within F fall under an even number of negations

-Calculus -calculus is a powerful logic –Any CTL* property can be expressed in -calculus So, if you build a model checker for -calculus you would handle all the temporal logics we discussed: LTL, CTL, CTL* One can write a -calculus model checker using the basic ideas about fixpoint computations that we discussed –However, there is one complication Nested fixpoints!

Mu-calculus Model Checking Algorithm eval(f : mu-calculus formula) : a set of states case: f APreturn {s | L(s,f)=true}; case: f preturn S - eval(p); case: f p q return eval(p) eval(q); case: f p q return eval(p) eval(q); case: f EX preturn EX(eval(p));

5
Mu-calculus Model Checking Algorithm eval(f) … case: f y. g(y) y := False; repeat { y old := y; y := eval(g(y)); } until y = y old return y;

Mu-calculus Model Checking Algorithm eval(f) … case: f y. g(y) y := True; repeat { y old := y; y := eval(g(y)); } until y = y old return y;

Nested Fixpoints Here is a CTL property EG EF p = y. ( z. p EX z) EX y –The fixpoints are not nested. –Inner fixpoint is computed only once and then the outer fixpoint is computed –Fixpoint characterizations of CTL properties do not have nested fixpoints Here is a CTL* property EGF p = y. z. ((p EX z) EX y) –The fixpoints are nested. –Inner fixpoint is recomputed for each iteration of the outer fixpoint

Nested Fixpoint Example 102 p 0 |= EG EF p EF p EG EF p = y. ( z. p EX z) EX y EGF p = y. z.
