Download Logics for Concurrency: Structure versus Automata by Faron Moller, Graham Birtwistle PDF

By Faron Moller, Graham Birtwistle

This ebook provides 5 tutorial-style lectures on a variety of ways to the matter of verifying dispensed platforms: 3 chapters pay attention to linear-time or branching-time temporal logics; one addresses technique equivalence with an emphasis on infinite-state structures; and the ultimate one offers a singular category-theoretic method of verification. a few of the formalisms for expressing homes of concurrent platforms, in line with automata-theoretic thoughts or structural homes, are studied in detail.
Much awareness is paid to the fashion of writing and complementary insurance of the suitable concerns. therefore those lecture notes are preferrred for complex classes on logics for concurrent structures. both, they're integral interpreting for an individual getting to know the realm of disbursed computing.

Data Integration: The Relational Logic Approach

Info integration is a serious challenge in our more and more interconnected yet unavoidably heterogeneous global. there are various facts assets on hand in organizational databases and on public details platforms just like the world-wide-web. no longer strangely, the assets frequently use assorted vocabularies and diversified facts buildings, being created, as they're, by way of diverse humans, at various occasions, for various reasons.

Approximation, Randomization, and Combinatorial Optimization: Algorithms and Techniques: 4th International Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems, APPROX 2001 and 5th International Workshop on Randomization and Approx

This e-book constitutes the joint refereed court cases of the 4th overseas Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Optimization difficulties, APPROX 2001 and of the fifth foreign Workshop on Ranomization and Approximation options in desktop technological know-how, RANDOM 2001, held in Berkeley, California, united states in August 2001.

Relational and Algebraic Methods in Computer Science: 15th International Conference, RAMiCS 2015 Braga, Portugal, September 28 – October 1, 2015, Proceedings

This booklet constitutes the complaints of the fifteenth foreign convention on Relational and Algebraic equipment in laptop technological know-how, RAMiCS 2015, held in Braga, Portugal, in September/October 2015. The 20 revised complete papers and three invited papers awarded have been rigorously chosen from 25 submissions. The papers take care of the speculation of relation algebras and Kleene algebras, method algebras; mounted element calculi; idempotent semirings; quantales, allegories, and dynamic algebras; cylindric algebras, and approximately their program in components reminiscent of verification, research and improvement of courses and algorithms, algebraic ways to logics of courses, modal and dynamic logics, period and temporal logics.

Biometrics in a Data Driven World: Trends, Technologies, and Challenges

Biometrics in a knowledge pushed global: tendencies, applied sciences, and demanding situations goals to notify readers concerning the glossy functions of biometrics within the context of a data-driven society, to familiarize them with the wealthy heritage of biometrics, and to supply them with a glimpse into the way forward for biometrics.

The Model Checking Problem - Given a finite state transition graph M and a temporal logic specification formula f, is M a model of f ? This is useful in automatic verification of (finite state) reactive programs. 2. The Satisfiability Problem - Given a temporal logic specification formula f , does there exist a model M of f ? This is useful in automatic synthesis of (finite state) reactive programs. Thus automated program reasoning, in various forms, is possible in principle. The limiting factors are: a.

Each philosopher spends most of his time thinking, but occasionally becomes hungry and wants to eat. In order to eat, he has to pick up the two nearest forks; when he has finished eating, he puts the forks down again. The problem consists of defining a concurrent system which models this situation; there are then various questions which can be asked about its behaviour. One is about deadlock-freedom: is it possible for the system to reach a state in which nothing further can happen, for example because the forks have been picked up in an unsuitable way?
