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.
The 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. Our main theoretical results are as
follows. First, for constant treewidth graphs we present an algorithm that approximates
the mean-payoff value within a multiplicative factor of ϵ in time O(n⋅log(n/ϵ))
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⋅log(|a⋅b|))=O(n⋅log(n⋅W)), when the output
is ab, as compared to the previously best known algorithm with running time O(n2⋅log(n⋅W)).
Third, for the minimum initial credit problem we show that (i) for general graphs
the problem can be solved in O(n2⋅m) time and the associated decision problem
can be solved in O(n⋅m) time, improving the previous known O(n3⋅m⋅log(n⋅W)) and
O(n2⋅m) bounds, respectively; and (ii) for constant treewidth graphs we present
an algorithm that requires O(n⋅logn) time, improving the previous known O(n4⋅log(n⋅W))
bound. We have implemented some of our algorithms and show that they present a
significant speedup on standard benchmarks.
