In this lecture we introduce linear temporal logic (LTL), a mathematical language for describing linear time properties of transition systems. After a short introduction to the concept of temporal logics, we introduce the syntax and semantics of LTL, including examples. Examples of LTL specifications for control protocols are drawn from the applications given in the introductory lecture. If time permits, we will also briefly introduce other temporal logics and describe some of the differences between various formulations.
