EECI 2012: Model Checking and Logic Synthesis
This lecture provides an introduction to automata based model checking. We first describe how automata based model checking works, including an efficient algorithm for computing language intersection. The rest of the lecture focuses on the use of Spin model checker and the computational complexity issue.
- Lecture slides: Model Checking with Spin (Presentation and notation follow that in "Model Checking" chapter 5.2 by Baier and Katoen and "The SPIN Model Checker: Primer and Reference Manual" by Holzmann.)
The SPIN Model Checker: Primer and Reference Manual, G. J. Holzmann, Addison-Wesley Professional, 2003. A comprehensive reference on Spin model checker
Principles of Model Checking, C. Baier and J.-P. Katoen, The MIT Press, 2008. A detailed reference on model checking. Slides for this lecture follow Chapter 6 of this reference.
Model Checking, E. M. Clarke, O. Grumberg and D. A. Peled, The MIT Press, 1999. A very good reference on automata based model checking.
