  1. 1. Infinite-state Stochastic and Parameterized Systems

    Author : Noomene Ben Henda; Parosh Abdulla; Christel Baier; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : program verification; model checking; stochastic games; infinite-state systems; Markov chains; reachability; repeated reachability; parameterized systems; approximation; safety; tree systems;

    Abstract : A major current challenge consists in extending formal methods in order to handle infinite-state systems. Infiniteness stems from the fact that the system operates on unbounded data structure such as stacks, queues, clocks, integers; as well as parameterization. READ MORE

  2. 2. Games and Probabilistic Infinite-State Systems

    Author : Sven Sandberg; Parosh Abdulla; Luca de Alfaro; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; program verification; model checking; determinacy; strategy improvement; infinite games; parity games; mean payoff games; stochastic games; Büchi games; reachability games; limiting average; limiting behavior; Markov chains; infinite-state systems; lossy channel systems; vector addition systems; noisy Turing machines; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Computer programs keep finding their ways into new safety-critical applications, while at the same time growing more complex. This calls for new and better methods to verify the correctness of software. We focus on one approach to verifying systems, namely that of model checking. READ MORE

  3. 3. Verification of Infinite-State Systems : Decision Problems and Efficient Algorithms

    Author : Mats Kindahl; Parosh Aziz Abdulla; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods for the verification of distributed systems with infinite state spaces. We consider several verification problems for lossy channel systems, a class of infinite-state systems consisting of finite-state machines that communicate over unbounded, but lossy, FIFO channels.

  4. 4. Few is Just Enough! : Small Model Theorem for Parameterized Verification and Shape Analysis

    Author : Frédéric Haziza; Parosh Aziz Abdulla; Tomáš Vojnar; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; program verification; model checking; parameterized systems; infinite-state systems; reachability; approximation; safety; tree systems; shape analysis; small model properties; view abstraction; monotonic abstraction; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis considers the automatic verification of parameterized systems, i.e. systems with an arbitrary number of communicating components, such as mutual exclusion protocols, cache coherence protocols or heap manipulating programs. The components may be organized in various topologies such as words, multisets, rings, or trees. READ MORE

  5. 5. Verifying Absence of ∞ Loops in Parameterized Protocols

    Author : Mayank Saksena; Bengt Jonsson; Ahmed Bouajjani; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : formal methods; verification; model checking; infinite-state systems; regular model checking; liveness; graph transformation;

    Abstract : The complex behavior of computer systems offers many challenges for formal verification. The analysis quickly becomes difficult as the number of participating processes increases. A parameterized system is a family of systems parameterized on a number n, typically representing the number of participating processes. READ MORE
