### SPIN

An Example

An explicit state model checker

Explict State Model Checker

- Represents the system as an finite state machine
- Visits each reachable state (state space) explicitly
- Checks some property
- Property is satisfied
- Counterexample

DFS

- DFS visit of the state space

procedureDFS(s)

visited = visited {s};

for each successor s’ of s

if s’visitedthen

DFS(s’);

end if

end for

end procedure

DFS

- How do we:
- Represent the transition relation
- Store the visited set
- Needs fast access (hash table)
- State space explosion
- Check properties

Promela

- Process Algebra
- An algebraic approach to the study of concurrent processes. Its tools are algebraical languages for the specification of processes and the formulation of statements about them, together with calculi for the verification of these statements. [Van Glabbeek, 1987]
- Describes the system in a way similar to a programming language

Promela

- Asynchronous composition of independent processes
- Communication using channels and global variables
- Non-deterministic choices and interleavings

Enabled Statements

- A statement needs to be enabled for the process to be scheduled.

bool a, b;

proctype p1()

{

a = true;

a & b;

a = false;

}

proctype p2()

{

b = false;

a & b;

b = true;

}

init { a = false; b = false; run p1(); run p2(); }

Enabled Statements

- A statement needs to be enabled for the process to be scheduled.

bool a, b;

proctype p1()

{

a = true;

a & b;

a = false;

}

proctype p2()

{

b = false;

a & b;

b = true;

}

init { a = false; b = false; run p1(); run p2(); }

These statements are enabled only if both a and b are true.

Enabled Statements

- A statement needs to be enabled for the process to be scheduled.

bool a, b;

proctype p1()

{

a = true;

a & b;

a = false;

}

proctype p2()

{

b = false;

a & b;

b = true;

}

init { a = false; b = false; run p1(); run p2(); }

These statements are enabled only if both a and b are true.

In this case b is always false and therefore there is a deadlock.

- Do loops
- Communication over channels

proctype sender(chan out)

::x=1;

out ! x;

}

out ? value;

assert(value == 0 || value == 1)

}

- Atomic Steps

int value;

proctype increment()

x = value;

x = x + 1;

value = x;

} }

On-The-Fly

- System is the asynchronous composition of processes
- The global transition relation is never build
- For each state the successor states are enumerated using the transition relation of each process

Visited Set

- Represents all the states that have been reached so far
- Will eventually become the set of all reachable state (state space)
- Test of presence of a state in the set must be efficient
- It is performed for each reached state

- procedure DFS(s)
- visited = visited {s};
- for each successor s’ of s
- if s’ visited then
- DFS(s’);
- end if
- end for
- end procedure

Visited Set

- Hash table
- Efficient for testing even if the number of elements in it is very big (≥ 106)

Visited Set

- Hash table
- Efficient for testing even if the number of elements in it is very big (≥ 106)
- Reduce memory usage
- Compress each state

When a transition is executed only a limited part of the state is modified

Queues

Compression

- Each transition changes only a small part of the state
- Assign a code to each element dynamically
- Encoded states + basic elements use considerably less spaces than the uncompressed states

Hash Compaction

- Uses a hashing function to store each state using only 2 bits

Hash Compaction

- Uses a hashing function to store each state using only 2 bits
- There is an non-zero probability that two states are mapped into the same bits

Hash Compaction

- Uses a hashing function to store each state using only 2 bits
- There is an non-zero probability that two states are mapped into the same bits
- If the number of states is quite smaller than the number of bits available there is a pretty good chance of not having conflicts

- If the number of states is quite smaller than the number of bits available there is a pretty good chance of not having conflicts
- The result is not (always) 100% correct!

Partial Order Reduction

- Some interleavings of processes are equivalent
- Computing such interleavings and storing the intermediate states is expensive

Partial Order Reduction

- Some interleavings of processes are equivalent
- Computing such interleavings and storing the intermediate states is expensive
- Partial order reduction defines a reduced system which is equivalent to the original system but contains less states and transitions

Defines an equivalent relation between states and computes the quotient of the state transition graph to obtain a reduced state transition graph.

Properties are true of the reduced state transition graph if and only if are true of the original graph.

Partial Order Reduction

- Optimal partial order reduction is as difficult as model checking!

Partial Order Reduction

- Optimal partial order reduction is as difficult as model checking!
- Compute an approximation based on syntactical information

Partial Order Reduction

Access to local variables

Receive on exclusive receive-access queues

Send on exclusive send-access queues

- Optimal partial order reduction is as difficult as model checking!
- Compute an approximation based on syntactical information
- Independent
- Invisible
- Check (at run-time) for actions postponed at infinitum

Not mentioned in the property

So called stack proviso

Properties

- Safety properties
- Something bad never happens
- Properties of states
- Liveness properties
- Something good eventually happens
- Properties of paths

Reachability is sufficient

We need something more complex to check liveness properties

LTL Model Checking

- Liveness properties are expressed in LTL
- Subset of CTL* of the form:
- A f

where f is a path formula with does not contain any quantifiers

- The quantifier A is usually omitted.
- G is substituted by (always or box)
- F is substituted by (eventually or diamond)
- X is substituted by (next)

LTL Formulae

- Always eventually p: p

AGFp in CTL*

AG AF p in CTL

- Always after p there is eventually q: ( p ( q ) )

AG(pFq) in CTL*

AG(p AFq) in CTL

- Fairness:

( p )

(AGF p) in CTL*

Can’t express it in CTL
