Conference Paper | Published
A real-time temporal logic for the specification of reactive systems is introduced. The novel feature of the logic, TPTL, is the adoption of temporal operators as quantifiers over time variables; every modality binds a variable to the time(s) it refers to. TPTL is demonstrated to be both a natural specification language and a suitable formalism for verification and synthesis. A tableau-based decision procedure and model-checking algorithm for TPTL are presented. Several generalizations of TPTL are shown to be highly undecidable.
