### A SimpleModel Checker for CTL

(Lecture Notes from

Marcello Bonsangue, LIACS - Leiden University

http://www.liacs.nl/~marcello/)

The problem

- We need efficient algorithms to solve the problems

[1] M,s

[2] M,s

where M should have finitely many states,

and is a CTL formula.

- We concentrate to solution of [2], as [1] can be easily derived from it.

The solution

- Input:A CTL model M and CTL formula
- Output: The set of states of M which satisfy
- Basic principles:
- Translate any CTL formula in terms of the connectives AF,EU,EX, ,, and .
- Label the states of M with sub-formulas of that are satisfied there, starting from the smallest sub-formulas and working outwards towards
- Output the states labeled by

The labelling

- An immediatesub-formula of a formula is any maximal-length formula y other than itself
- Let y be a sub-formula of and assume the states of M have been already labeled by all immediate sub-formulas of y.

Which states have to be labeled by y?

We proceed by case analysis

The basic labeling

- no states are labeled
- p label a state s with p if p l(s)
- y1y2 label a state s with y1y2 if s is already labeled with both y1 and y2
- y label a state s with y if s is not already labeled with y

The AF labeling

- AFy 1. Label with AFy any state s already labeled with y

2. Repeat until no change: label any state s with AFy if all successors of s are already labeled with Afy

repeat

The EU labeling

- E[y1Uy2] 1. Label with E[y1Uy2] any state s already labeled with y2

2. Repeat until no change: label any state s with E[y1Uy2] if it is labeled with y1 and at least one of its successor is already labeled with E[y1Uy2]

repeat

E[y1Uy2]

… until no change

The EX labeling

- EXy Label with EXy any state s with one of its successors already labeled with y

EXy

The EG labeling (direct)

- EGy 1. Label all the states with EGy

2. Delete the label EGy from any state s not labeled with y

3. Repeat until no change: delete the label Egy from any state s if none f its successors is labeled with EGy

repeat

Complexity

The complexity of the model checking algorithm is

O(f*V*(V+E))

where f = number of connectives in

V = number of states of M

E = number of transitions of M

It can be easily improved to an

algorithm linear both in the size of the formula and of the model

2.1 label any state s with E[qUp] if it is labeled with q and at least one of its successor is already labeled with E[qUp]

2.2 label any state s with E[qUp] if it is labeled with q and at least one of its successor is already labeled with E[qUp]

5.2. label any state s with f if all successors of s are already labeled with f

State explosion

- The algorithm is linear in the size of the model but the size of the model is exponential in the number of variables, components, etc.

Can we reduce state explosion?

- Abstraction (what is relevant?)
- Induction (for ‘similar’ components)
- Composition (divide and conquer)
- Reduction (prove semantic equivalence)
- Ordered binary decision diagrams
