text: "We consider the core algorithmic problems related to verification of systems
with respect to three classical quantitative properties, namely, the mean-payoff
property, the ratio property, and the minimum initial credit for energy property.
\r\nThe algorithmic problem given a graph and a quantitative property asks to
compute the optimal value (the infimum value over all traces) from every node
of the graph. We consider graphs with constant treewidth, and it is well-known
that the control-flow graphs of most programs have constant treewidth. Let $n$
denote the number of nodes of a graph, $m$ the number of edges (for constant treewidth
graphs $m=O(n)$) and $W$ the largest absolute value of the weights.\r\nOur main
theoretical results are as follows.\r\nFirst, for constant treewidth graphs we
present an algorithm that approximates the mean-payoff value within a multiplicative
factor of $\\epsilon$ in time $O(n \\cdot \\log (n/\\epsilon))$ and linear space,
as compared to the classical algorithms that require quadratic time. Second, for
the ratio property we present an algorithm that for constant treewidth graphs
works in time $O(n \\cdot \\log (|a\\cdot b|))=O(n\\cdot\\log (n\\cdot W))$, when
the output is $\\frac{a}{b}$, as compared to the previously best known algorithm
with running time $O(n^2 \\cdot \\log (n\\cdot W))$. Third, for the minimum initial
credit problem we show that (i)~for general graphs the problem can be solved in
$O(n^2\\cdot m)$ time and the associated decision problem can be solved in $O(n\\cdot
m)$ time, improving the previous known $O(n^3\\cdot m\\cdot \\log (n\\cdot W))$
and $O(n^2 \\cdot m)$ bounds, respectively; and (ii)~for constant treewidth graphs
we present an algorithm that requires $O(n\\cdot \\log n)$ time, improving the
previous known $O(n^4 \\cdot \\log (n \\cdot W))$ bound.\r\nWe have implemented
some of our algorithms and show that they present a significant speedup on standard
benchmarks. "

text: "The edit distance between two words w1, w2 is the minimal number of word
operations (letter insertions, deletions, and substitutions) necessary to transform
w1 to w2. The edit distance generalizes to languages L1, L2, where the edit distance
is the minimal number k such that for every word from L1 there exists a word in
L2 with edit distance at most k. We study the edit distance computation problem
between pushdown automata and their subclasses.\r\nThe problem of computing edit
distance to a pushdown automaton is undecidable, and in practice, the interesting
question is to compute the edit distance from a pushdown automaton (the implementation,
a standard model for programs with recursion) to a regular language (the specification).
In this work, we present a complete picture of decidability and complexity for
deciding whether, for a given threshold k, the edit distance from a pushdown automaton
to a finite automaton is at most k. "

text: 'The target discounted-sum problem is the following: Given a rational discount
factor 0 < λ < 1 and three rational values a, b, and t, does there exist a finite
or an infinite sequence w ε(a, b)∗ or w ε(a, b)w, such that Σ|w| i=0 w(i)λi equals
t? The problem turns out to relate to many fields of mathematics and computer
science, and its decidability question is surprisingly hard to solve. We solve
the finite version of the problem, and show the hardness of the infinite version,
linking it to various areas and open problems in mathematics and computer science:
β-expansions, discounted-sum automata, piecewise affine maps, and generalizations
of the Cantor set. We provide some partial results to the infinite version, among
which are solutions to its restriction to eventually-periodic sequences and to
the cases that λ λ 1/2 or λ = 1/n, for every n ε N. We use our results for solving
some open problems on discounted-sum automata, among which are the exact-value
problem for nondeterministic automata over finite words and the universality and
inclusion problems for functional automata. '

text: 'Evolution occurs in populations of reproducing individuals. The structure
of the population affects the outcome of the evolutionary process. Evolutionary
graph theory is a powerful approach to study this phenomenon. There are two graphs.
The interaction graph specifies who interacts with whom for payoff in the context
of evolution. The replacement graph specifies who competes with whom for reproduction.
The vertices of the two graphs are the same, and each vertex corresponds to an
individual of the population. The fitness (or the reproductive rate) is a non-negative
number, and depends on the payoff. A key quantity is the fixation probability
of a new mutant. It is defined as the probability that a newly introduced mutant
(on a single vertex) generates a lineage of offspring which eventually takes over
the entire population of resident individuals. The basic computational questions
are as follows: (i) the qualitative question asks whether the fixation probability
is positive; and (ii) the quantitative approximation question asks for an approximation
of the fixation probability. Our main results are as follows: First, we consider
a special case of the general problem, where the residents do not reproduce. We
show that the qualitative question is NP-complete, and the quantitative approximation
question is #P-complete, and the hardness results hold even in the special case
where the interaction and the replacement graphs coincide. Second, we show that
in general both the qualitative and the quantitative approximation questions are
PSPACE-complete. The PSPACE-hardness result for quantitative approximation holds
even when the fitness is always positive.'

text: We study algorithmic questions for concurrent systems where the transitions
are labeled from a complete, closed semiring, and path properties are algebraic
with semiring operations. The algebraic path properties can model dataflow analysis
problems, the shortest path problem, and many other natural problems that arise
in program analysis. We consider that each component of the concurrent system
is a graph with constant treewidth, a property satisfied by the controlflow graphs
of most programs. We allow for multiple possible queries, which arise naturally
in demand driven dataflow analysis. The study of multiple queries allows us to
consider the tradeoff between the resource usage of the one-time preprocessing
and for each individual query. The traditional approach constructs the product
graph of all components and applies the best-known graph algorithm on the product.
In this approach, even the answer to a single query requires the transitive closure
(i.e., the results of all possible queries), which provides no room for tradeoff
between preprocessing and query time. Our main contributions are algorithms that
significantly improve the worst-case running time of the traditional approach,
and provide various tradeoffs depending on the number of queries. For example,
in a concurrent system of two components, the traditional approach requires hexic
time in the worst case for answering one query as well as computing the transitive
closure, whereas we show that with one-time preprocessing in almost cubic time,
each subsequent query can be answered in at most linear time, and even the transitive
closure can be computed in almost quartic time. Furthermore, we establish conditional
optimality results showing that the worst-case running time of our algorithms
cannot be improved without achieving major breakthroughs in graph algorithms (i.e.,
improving the worst-case bound for the shortest path problem in general graphs).
Preliminary experimental results show that our algorithms perform favorably on
several benchmarks.

text: "We study algorithmic questions for concurrent systems where the transitions
are labeled from a complete, closed semiring, and path properties are algebraic
with semiring operations. The algebraic path properties can model dataflow analysis
problems, the shortest path problem, and many other natural properties that arise
in program analysis.\r\nWe consider that each component of the concurrent system
is a graph with constant treewidth, and it is known that the controlflow graphs
of most programs have constant treewidth. We allow for multiple possible queries,
which arise naturally in demand driven dataflow analysis problems (e.g., alias
analysis). The study of multiple queries allows us to consider the tradeoff between
the resource usage of the \\emph{one-time} preprocessing and for \\emph{each individual}
query. The traditional approaches construct the product graph of all components
and apply the best-known graph algorithm on the product. In the traditional approach,
even the answer to a single query requires the transitive closure computation
(i.e., the results of all possible queries), which provides no room for tradeoff
between preprocessing and query time.\r\n\r\nOur main contributions are algorithms
that significantly improve the worst-case running time of the traditional approach,
and provide various tradeoffs depending on the number of queries. For example,
in a concurrent system of two components, the traditional approach requires hexic
time in the worst case for answering one query as well as computing the transitive
closure, whereas we show that with one-time preprocessing in almost cubic time,
\r\neach subsequent query can be answered in at most linear time, and even the
transitive closure can be computed in almost quartic time. Furthermore, we establish
conditional optimality results that show that the worst-case running times of
our algorithms cannot be improved without achieving major breakthroughs in graph
algorithms (such as improving \r\nthe worst-case bounds for the shortest path
problem in general graphs whose current best-known bound has not been improved
in five decades). Finally, we provide a prototype implementation of our algorithms
which significantly outperforms the existing algorithmic methods on several benchmarks."

text: POMDPs are standard models for probabilistic planning problems, where an agent
interacts with an uncertain environment. We study the problem of almost-sure reachability,
where given a set of target states, the question is to decide whether there is
a policy to ensure that the target set is reached with probability 1 (almost-surely).
While in general the problem is EXPTIME-complete, in many practical cases policies
with a small amount of memory suffice. Moreover, the existing solution to the
problem is explicit, which first requires to construct explicitly an exponential
reduction to a belief-support MDP. In this work, we first study the existence
of observation-stationary strategies, which is NP-complete, and then small-memory
strategies. We present a symbolic algorithm by an efficient encoding to SAT and
using a SAT solver for the problem. We report experimental results demonstrating
the scalability of our symbolic (SAT-based) approach.

text: A comprehensive understanding of the clonal evolution of cancer is critical
for understanding neoplasia. Genome-wide sequencing data enables evolutionary
studies at unprecedented depth. However, classical phylogenetic methods often
struggle with noisy sequencing data of impure DNA samples and fail to detect subclones
that have different evolutionary trajectories. We have developed a tool, called
Treeomics, that allows us to reconstruct the phylogeny of a cancer with commonly
available sequencing technologies. Using Bayesian inference and Integer Linear
Programming, robust phylogenies consistent with the biological processes underlying
cancer evolution were obtained for pancreatic, ovarian, and prostate cancers.
Furthermore, Treeomics correctly identified sequencing artifacts such as those
resulting from low statistical power; nearly 7% of variants were misclassified
by conventional statistical methods. These artifacts can skew phylogenies by creating
illusory tumor heterogeneity among distinct samples. Importantly, we show that
the evolutionary trees generated with Treeomics are mathematically optimal.

text: "Model-based testing is a promising technology for black-box software and
hardware testing, in which test cases are generated automatically from high-level
specifications. Nowadays, systems typically consist of multiple interacting components
and, due to their complexity, testing presents a considerable portion of the effort
and cost in the design process. Exploiting the compositional structure of system
specifications can considerably reduce the effort in model-based testing. Moreover,
inferring properties about the system from testing its individual components allows
the designer to reduce the amount of integration testing.\r\nIn this paper, we
study compositional properties of the IOCO-testing theory. We propose a new approach
to composition and hiding operations, inspired by contract-based design and interface
theories. These operations preserve behaviors that are compatible under composition
and hiding, and prune away incompatible ones. The resulting specification characterizes
the input sequences for which the unit testing of components is sufficient to
infer the correctness of component integration without the need for further tests.
We provide a methodology that uses these results to minimize integration testing
effort, but also to detect potential weaknesses in specifications. While we focus
on asynchronous models and the IOCO conformance relation, the resulting methodology
can be applied to a broader class of systems."

that desired behaviors of the system arise almost-surely (with probability 1)

the refinement relation of MDPs with respect to qualitative properties, and present
discrete graph theoretic algorithms with quadratic complexity to compute the simulation
relation.\r\nWe present an automated technique for assume-guarantee style reasoning

We have implemented our algorithms and show that the compositional analysis leads
