We define quantitative similarity functions between timed transition systems that measure the degree of closeness of two systems as a real, in contrast to the traditional boolean yes/no approach to timed simulation and language inclusion. Two systems are close if for each timed trace of one system, there exists a corresponding timed trace in the other system with the same sequence of events and closely corresponding event timings. We show that timed CTL is robust with respect to our quantitative version of bisimilarity, in particular, if a system satisfies a formula, then every close system satisfies a close formula. We also define a discounted version of CTL over timed systems, which assigns to every CTL formula a real value that is obtained by discounting real time. We prove the robustness of discounted CTL by establishing that close states in the bisimilarity metric have close values for all discounted CTL formulas.
