Compositional Verification of Concurrent and Real-Time Systems

Overview

With the rapid growth of networking and high-computing power, the demand for large-scale and complex software systems has increased dramatically. Since many of the software systems support or supplant human control of safety-critical systems (such as those found in flight control, space shuttle control, aircraft avionics, robotics, patient monitoring devices and nuclear power plants), failure of such systems could have disastrous effects. It is essential, therefore, that software used for safety-critical systems ...

Overview

With the rapid growth of networking and high-computing power, the demand for large-scale and complex software systems has increased dramatically. Since many of the software systems support or supplant human control of safety-critical systems (such as those found in flight control, space shuttle control, aircraft avionics, robotics, patient monitoring devices and nuclear power plants), failure of such systems could have disastrous effects. It is essential, therefore, that software used for safety-critical systems preserves high assurance properties.

Compositional Verification of Concurrent and Real-Time Systems introduces important modeling and formal verification techniques for verifying the reliability and correctness of high-assurance software systems. The book focuses on the efficient analysis of large-scale systems based on the concept of "compositional verification" of modules.

Compositional Verification of Concurrent and Real-Time Systems is an excellent resource for student and researchers who seek a comprehensive understanding of how formal methods can be applied to the problems of intellectual or industrial significance. The application areas include concurrent systems, distributed systems, embedded systems, and real-time systems. The analysis models used are Multiset Labeled Transition Systems and Time Petri Nets.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This volume introduces important modeling and formal techniques for verifying the reliability and correctness of high-assurance software systems, with a focus on the efficient analysis of large-scale systems based on the concept of compositional verification of modules. Juan (Chung Yuan Christian U.) and Tsai (U. of Illinois at Chicago) present seven chapters that discuss introductory material, verification techniques for concurrent systems, multiset labeled transition systems, compositional verification using MLTS and Petri nets, tools and experiments, and delay time Petri nets and net reduction. Application areas include concurrent, distributed, embedded, and real- time systems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
