Course objectives
The aim is to acquire basic knowledge and develop skills in the use of modal and temporal logics for specification, analysis and verification of computer systems.
By the end of the semester, students should be able:
to understand definitions of the logics and logical systems presented in the course, the ideas of the proofs;
to understand the differences in the logics, and their capabilities and limitations;
to understand the utility, potential and limitations of formal verification, in particular model checking, for linear-time and branching-time logics.
Learning outcomes
By the end of the semester, students should be able: • to understand and apply definitions of the logics and logical systems presented in the course, the ideas of the proofs; • to understand the differences in the logics, and their capabilities and limitations; • to understand the utility, potential and limitations of formal verification, in particular model checking, for linear-time and branching-time logics.
Syllabus
  • Modal logics: propositional modal logic, modal mu-calculus.
  • Temporal logics: propositional temporal logic, linear and branching time, temporal operators.
  • Classification of properties, liveness, safety, local and global properties.
  • Model checking, applications.
