An Introduction to Practical Formal Methods Using Temporal by Michael Fisher

By Michael Fisher

The identify "temporal common sense" could sound advanced and daunting; yet whereas they describe in all likelihood advanced eventualities, temporal logics are frequently in line with a number of uncomplicated, and basic, suggestions - highlighted during this booklet. An creation to useful Formal equipment utilizing Temporal Logic offers an creation to formal tools in line with temporal common sense, for constructing and checking out advanced computational structures. those equipment are supported via many well-developed instruments, suggestions and effects that may be utilized to a variety of platforms.

Fisher starts off with an entire creation to the topic, protecting the fundamentals of temporal good judgment and utilizing various examples, routines and tips that could extra complex paintings to assist make clear and illustrate the subjects mentioned. He is going directly to describe how this good judgment can be utilized to specify numerous computational structures, taking a look at problems with linking requirements, concurrency, verbal exchange and composition skill. He then analyses temporal specification recommendations equivalent to deductive verification, algorithmic verification, and direct execution to strengthen and make certain computational platforms. the ultimate bankruptcy on case experiences analyses the aptitude difficulties which can happen in quite a number engineering purposes within the parts of robotics, railway signalling, layout, ubiquitous computing, clever brokers, and data defense, and explains how temporal common sense can increase their accuracy and reliability.

  • Models temporal notions and makes use of them to research computational systems
  • Provides a wide method of temporal common sense throughout many formal equipment - together with specification, verification and implementation
  • Introduces and explains freely to be had instruments in line with temporal logics and indicates how those may be applied
  • Presents routines and tips to additional examine in every one bankruptcy, in addition to an accompanying site supplying hyperlinks to extra structures dependent upon temporal good judgment in addition to extra fabric regarding the book.
