Composition of Stochastic Transition Systems Based on Spans and Couplings

pdf-format:


Abstract

Conventional approaches for parallel composition of stochastic systems relate probability measures of the individual components in terms of product measures. Such approaches rely on the assumption that components interact stochastically independent, which might be too rigid for modeling real world systems. In this paper, we introduce a parallel-composition operator for stochastic transition systems that is based on couplings of probability measures and does not impose any stochastic assumptions. When composing systems within our framework, the intended dependencies between components can be determined by providing so-called spans and span couplings. We present a congruence result for our operator with respect to a standard notion of bisimilarity and develop a general theory for spans, exploiting deep results from descriptive set theory. As an application of our general approach, we propose a model for stochastic hybrid systems called stochastic hybrid motion automata.
